They were the first that somehow got equal tooth belts made and they've sold well over 100 of them. If I could sell 100 of these, I'd sell them for far less because I could get em made in a WAY bigger bulk. My hope is that the group buy either encourages people to purchase a belt or two to buy me out... or tells me that there is no longer a market so I can move on. I'll always have belts for my own XXX-S, but keeping 20 or more on hand takes up a bit of space. I began drifting and really paired down my r/c stuff recently.

sent you an email and 20 to paypal for a xxx-s belt, thanks

Got it. Ships today.


I feel a little renewed vigor seeing people still racing. Maybe I won't quit but just adjust my belt selling to seasonally. When do most of you race? Here in Michigan, it was always fall through winter because of the weather. When do you most think about buying for your race seasons?

You might consider stocking up before the summer and/or winter seasons.

So I had an old Losi XXX-S that I sold a while ago, but recently found a bunch of parts that I had lying around. Got a couple c-hubs, arms, body posts, just random stuff. Anybody interested in it? I'd sell it pretty cheap.

Gearing option with the XXX-S, get two diff gear sets and use the overdrive gear front and rear

I have the 64 pitch 108 tooth spur and I am running the biggest pinion (54) I can get on it without modification. If the track is really technical, I might drop 1 or 2 teeth on the pinion. If you mod the motor mount plate, you could get a couple of more teeth bigger pinion.

BTW, where I race at is a medium sized carpet track.
