Hi guys, has anyone experienced rear belts not lasting with gear diff, and the outdrive blades quite the same.

Is there a wider/stronger belt out there that will fit. With the slightest of wear on the out drives promote heavy plastic blade wear, the Tamiya blades are cheap plain plastic are there other blades of better quality.

A rear belt has cost me two finals......really looking for some advice.

I do set the rear belt a bit tighter dot forward for gear diff.

Thanks.

Maybe that is the problem.

About the blade, I use the Spec-R ones, no issues with it, stronger than the tamiya's ones.

What about the condition of the center pulleys, if those aluminium pulleys start wearing they'll definitely negatively impact the life of the belt.

Thats what I would say too.... Rear belt needs to be tight, but not too tight. needs about 3-4mm of deflection when you press down on it.

Also, as Skitee says, check the centre pulleys. Over time, they do wear, and the teeth become pointed (especially with mod motors), and can strip belts more easily... and this comes from experience

Regarding the blades, personally, the tamiya blades are fine, although the Spec-R's work good too. Most critical thing when using a gear diff is to make sure the outdrives are in good shape, any notching in them, replace the outdrive, as you'll just destroy the blades, whatever the type.

The belts on the Tamiya are really good...they are flexible but not too soft. If you are having issues it is probably a pulley, because the belts wear very well. Something has to be going to to have two belts break or wear that quickly. Check the gear diff and middle pulley for wear or stuff clogged in the teeth.

Default Drilled shock caps or not?

For carpet racing.....does one prefer to have drilled shock caps or not?

What about shock rebound on carpet?

Any experience is appreciated.

Thx!!

Personally, on carpet I go with sealed tops, but no foam, and minimal rebound... although I know some people like to use full rebound as well.
