Hmm, if they wear out fast, then that's an issue.... as it's a pain in the butt to replace the front belt in this car (better then some, but still time consuming)

I guess a lot of people get anal over the efficency /drag issues with there cars, but I wonder how many people really see any real gain...

Probably more so in stock/19... but I have my doubts with regard to modified (brushed 6x1, 7x1, brushless 3.5, 4.5)....


Thanks for the info guys.....

I have a belt tensioner question. Do you adjust the height to where the bearings just touch the belt or is there actual tension on it?

I set mine up so that it only just touches. From what ive heard, you definitely dont want it to apply pressure to the belt.

Does anyone know of a company that makes the centre pulley (16T) - HB70725, out of a different material other than aluminium... maybe delrin or another composite material....

3Racing makes one. It is just like this one, but obviously just a direct pulley:

Precision actually carries the one I'm talking about, but they must be out of stock right now because it's not showing up on their site.

I wouldn't say that... it really depends on how much or how strong you use your brakes....
For example, heavy braking on tracks with a lot of hairpin corners and run a spool will make the belt skip under brakes.... This would be more prevalent with brushed motors then brushless because of the stronger brakes that brushed motors have...

So... itís a matter of choice and your circumstances you drive under.
