Especially if you bring your spares. Remember to bring a cash register, because between what you and I have, we'll open a hobby store at Reedy

I am finally going to get to try the car with new bearings in it.. The car has freed up a lot now...

Belt tension question... how tight/loose should the belt be run?

I have always found in stock I ran the belt as loose as possible after a few runs just tightend a tad to get the belt from skipping during hard breaking

Thanks Randy! I will loosen it just a bit today.. Can't wait to drive it!

OT - I ordered a Team1 RC monster motor and should have it today... has anyone run one of these? If so, did you like it?

Just purchased and assembled xxx g+ after running tc3 for over 1 year. Was wondering if there is a noticeable performace difference between the cut yellow belt and the new black belt kit. When I built the car I cut every other tooth off of the yellow belt as the black belt kits are hard to find. The car will be raced mostly in stock class.

I installed my black belt and I was almost a second faster a lap.. I think that it helps but my bearings were bad and I will be driving my car with new bearings at lunch today...

A guy I race with put a black belt in his car and said that he could definitly tell a difference... we both race stock.

the cut yellow belt works nearly as well as the new black belt. but suggest you keep an open eye for a black belt kit.

oh then cut every other tooth off that as well - especially in stock

Really??!!! It's amazing what a difference the new belt kit makes. I'm hearing nothing but good things about it.

What's the best way to cut the teeth off of these belts?

If you are going to cut a belt, use fingernail clippers...

As far as clipping the black belt, there are mixed results.. I would try it uncut first and then if want, clip it..

I think I would have noticed a bigger difference if the bearings in my car were better when I drove it..

I notice a slight difference between the cut yellow belt and the cut black belt, but it is slight. I dont know that it'll be any faster on the track because of the belt, but there is less drag brake with the black belt which makes it easier to drive with a 1 way.
