By lifting the center of the front belt max. deflection is about 9-10mm or 3/8". This is for my older Super Electric what is about 2 years old with still the first belt. I think deflection will change a bit when the belt gets older but the belts from the Super E are very strong and donīt worn out as much as the belts from the narrow touring cars. This car was run with 17T HPI spec motors and sometimes 12T Modified motors as well.
I have another Super Electric what was made for brushless racing and as this car has just about 3 races so belts are a little tighter but not much. I changed some things on this car as itīs not used for the HPI-Challenge using front oneway, TRF shocks and Lunsford turnbuckles. For power Iīm using GM/Speedpassion BL 5.5T or 4.5T on 6 cells with a LRP TC Spec ESC.
One thing I didnīt like with the Super E are the screws, I did replace them with metric stainless screws right from the beginning on both cars. Also stock gears were replaced with Xenon gears.
