LOSA3280 is a kit. Includes the longer H.D. black belt, longer arm, pulley wheel, 2 flanged ball bearings (not bushing as indicated above), screw, washer and instructions.

They do have the parts described under separate item numbers too; but, don't think they are available that way yet. You need the whole kit anyway.

gearless, it's my humble opinion to start with the firmer spring and go softer if you have to. My motto is run the stiffest spring you can get away with. The reason is that the harder spring you run the more corner speed you will carry through the turns.

The way I tell if my spring is too hard? If I know I've got the best tire/insert combo on the car for that particular track, yet the car wants to break loose too easily then I'll soften the springs up a little. I like to change the entire set of springs front and rear because if you soften the front only you'll lose steering, if you soften only the rear you will increase steering. Changing all 4 springs leaves the balance of the car the same.

Sometimes I will soften the springs if it seems to be overreactive in the turns (twitchy), or if the track is a rougher surface, but more times than not I have blue/blue or green/green on the car at all times. Anyway, everyone has a different take on it so give it a try and see what you think.

Talking

Here are the details from the Instruction Sheet for "Team Losi's new and improved Long Belt Conversion for the XXX-S cars..."

2 ea. 5mm x 8mm flanged bearings (LOSA6920)
1 ea. 19mm H.D Idler Pulley (LOSA3282)
1 ea. Idler Pulley Shaft (LOSA3283)
1 ea. H.D. Belt Tensioner Arm (LOSA3283)
1 ea. 4-40 x 5/16" Button Head Screw (LOSA6245)
2 ea. 1/4" x .020 Washers (LOSA6350)
1 ea. Black Belt (part # not shown on instructions sheet)

The parts with the same numbers come bundled.

The Tensioner Arm now has a hole instead of being slotted so you don't have to say #?!#&*?!! every time it drops into the tunnel. That alone is worth the money...

It's raining here...No racing at Stockton today...Should have plenty of time to install it.

Apparently, the belts are out there. Start checking with local shops to see if they ordered any for stock.

Speedworld in Roseville would be my first thought because Billy is soooooooo Losi oriented.

From what I have seen and heard the New Black belt is the same as the Yellow Belt except it is longer and a different color. The Prototype belts that they were running down at the Birds were a little more elastic...

Of my 3 firends that have the new belt...they cut every other tooth off the belt.

Glad to see everyone stoked about the new belt/pulley...I cut the teeth off of my belt...it is the same material as the yellow belt, but slightly longer. It is actually about the same length as the XXX-4 belt.

What are the benefits of cutting every other tooth on the belt?


Thanks
