For 38 and 30T pulleys....maybe check Broadtech, Banzaihobby, Rc-race-and-drift-Japan
I guess the aluminum pulley will fix the front belt problem.
I have Checked all those 3 major online shops you have mentioned and the only one I could find was the Dlike 38T pulley for front diff with unknow bore size

Hey guys so I'm having problems with really bad shaking on the front end when I turn the wheels. Someone here said that I should buy the ultra wide driveshafts and I did but the problem is the same. What else can I do? Maybe a one way? I triple checked everything and nothing is binding. I'm lost here.

Check out this video. This guy use to have the same problem I have but he changed to the UW driveshafts and problem went away

Hey did you assemble the CVD's before putting them in the car, the pin some times slides out of the wheel axle. if this is happening grind a flat on the pin and thread lock the grub screw. the CVD's chatter at full lock because the dog bone hits the inside of the wheel axle. even the ultra wide CVD's will do it when they reach the limit of their angle. the standard sweepers only allow 45* of angle but the Ultra wide CVD's go to 55*? A FOW is a good idea the chassis doesn't handle right with out one.

Have you checked to make sure that the bearing holders are properly aligned and matching? The UWA should have fixed your problem

Ill be checking all that tonight when I get home. Another thing is that when I take the front wheels off the chattering stops completely. It only does it when wheels are on. I already tried 4 sets of different wheels and al the same result so its not the wheels.

Hey guys how can I make my rear end not so loose? Every time I give it a little throttle the rear end spins out. It's uncontrollable. I didn't knew CS was going to be so hard :0(

BEtter springs help too...stiffer in rear and soft in front...plus changing suspension settings...one at a time as every change affects the dynamics of a car.

But most of all, practice, practice, practice...don't drive it like 50/50 drifter...CS is more of smoooooth, prolonged throttle delivery, not the quick bursts....try turning down your throttle endpoint adjustment or change the settings on the ESC to reduce power. Keep practicing...steering inputs will. Ot be needed as much as 50/50 drifting...use the chassis ability to enter the drift for you

A FOW also helps initiate a drift when you back off the throttle the rear locks up like an E-brake but as eunique already stated it takes practice and lots of it! CS drifting is more realistic than 50/50 it's more scale drifting CS is slower so remember you don't need heaps of throttle and feathering it just makes it slide out more

A question for those who are chewing through front belts... are you using front spool and single joint cvds (either stock or wide angle, doesn't matter much)?

I suspect configurations like this which give front chatter when steering may wear the belt - that chatter goes back to pulley which takes it on the belt.
