Yep, that's mutual! I raced pan cars for a long time and I always hated messing with taping batteries.

BTW, yesterday I took a dremel and cutout some of the material along the outer side of the battery tray on a spare chassis I have. I doubt it cuts more than 1/4 of an ounce. I just did it because I was bored. I'll probably never even use this chassis. See attached.

When running the new black belt, what other items do you need to make it "Fit right". I switched from a yellow belt and it seems really long still?
Do I need each of these to run the new belt?
LOSA3282 Machined HD Idler Pulley (XXX-S) $__ 4.50
LOSA3283 HD Tension Arm & Hardware (XXX-S/4)_ $__ 6.00
LOSA6290 5mm X 8mm Flanged Ball Bearings (2)_ $__ 6.50


Thanks,

Here's a link to Losi's site, which shows you everything you need. BTW, Losi sells the full kit with everything you need for $20. Might be cheaper to buy that. And you would still have a spare belt if you ever needed it.

Looks pretty; unfortunately, I've been t-boned enough times to think I shouldn't risk making that area of the car fragile.

Thanks for sharing.

if you wanna run 64p gears get the 128t kevlar gear. That will give you the most precise gearing options

Default Battery Insulation Tape

How many of you use the battery insulation tape on your xxx-s? In your opinion, is it very important? My LHS doesn't have any and I can't find it listed on Horizon or Losi's website. Stormer is out of it as well. I know I could just use electrical tape, but I'm wondering if it even matters enough to bother.

Extra black belt in your pit box won't be a bad idea. I had mine loose some of the strands and wrap around my pully / spur...

Anyone else have this prob.?

It's better to be safe than sorry. I always have some on my chassis and a piece of tape on the battery strap, just in case. Electrical tape if fine. I just cut a strip of clear packing tape on mine.
