In fact there is a rumor about a new TCX Hara Edition... But that's just a rumor...

Just turn the differential bearing holders so it loosens the tension a tiny bit.

probably just a pair.... remember, most of those prices are full retail, not the street price.... that's the price for buying direct from the manufacturer

expect them much cheaper at hobby shops when they are available

I don't know of any longer belts, but there is a point where going too loose actually causes more drag under load. The belt flops around or skips, and the diff cams have more than enough adjustment to get to that point. Let us know if you find a belt that works for you though.

I thought the drivetrain had to much drag till I cleaned the bearings, Now she is nice and free. If your up to it clean out the stock lube and replace with high quality bearing oil like Acer racing sin lube and she will free right up.

Hope this helps
