I just put one together and I'm NOT impressed..

I can only hope it runs better than it went together.
iam really sorry to hear that.
The TRF 415 is excellent build as with all tamiya's
ive never built a full tech car i.e MY02 but ive built the 415 which is slightly different looking at pics of the MY02.
i dont know what top plate your talking about but on the TRF415 the belts do 'rest' on the middle stiffening plate and on the bottom deck but when drive is applied they 'lift' off and they dont rub on anything.
they only rest on this because the belts are tensioned so loosly but they dont slip.
