Also, check to make sure nothing is binding and that both sides are equally tensioned by the position of the bearing adaptors and not tweaked

Looks like I'm the only one here having the problem,I'll check again when I get my belts arrived from rcmart.

Pickle,I'm using the d3 one way.

I think you should strip the front down have a good look at the orientation of the bearing covers and play with them in the lower bulk head till you know which way the they tension 100% then put it all back together and tension it so it's not tight but not real loose either.

are you using brake on the ESC? or crawler mode? try turning the brake force down and no initial braking. you don't need brakes anyway

So I put the stock tyres back on instead of the softer Spice Tyres, made so much of a difference!

Biggest issue now is the centre belt is getting real loose, even with the belt tensioner.

One other thing...check your CVDs...they don't come assembled properly. Check that it's not binding...disassemble them. Grind flats in the middle of the pins, then use thread lock on the set screws

Maybe it's partially come out and is creating drag which can explain chewing through belts

I'd agree with pickled and make sure you have some washers under the rear pulley mount. If you do, you can also had some washers under the center tensioner to raise it a bit. I did this recently and it helped quite a bit

Got my HPI T-Drifts today and mounted them to my Topline +8mm wheels.

Made the car alot more consistent and I found it alot easier to get the slow drifts going.

I think now my problem is lack of motor RPM, its a very fine line at the moment. The 13.5T should fix that.

Woo finally caught up with this decade. Got myself a sensored brushless setup!! (coming from a silver can brushed motor)

The goodies I got in the mail were a 120a esc from hobbyking (exact copy of the hobbywing 120a) and then from hobbypartz: tacon 3 pole 8.5t motor, solar d770 servo, and a 7.2v UBEC.

The servo is insane! Especially with the 7.2 UBEC.
And the brushless setup is perfect, very fast, very smooth, just what I wanted.

Now I just have to pick up a sensored motor for the SCT, sensorless stuff isn't fun.

Highly recommended for a cheap brushless setup. Paid $35 for the esc and $35 for the motor.

Pictures (yes I know the wiring is messy! I just wanted to go drift haha):
