There's only 3 movin parts:
mainshaft pulley pinned to the mainshaft turns
the front tensioner turns
the front diff turns
Start eliminating suspects.
Belt tightening & loosening while in different phases of use is normal.
The belt COULD be getting hung up on the upper deck or the ESC wires or there's something jamming like pebble or one of the infamous loose HPI bulkhead nuts, etc.
Just a friendly tip, boy - using cap locks pretty much tells how old you are or how old you mind is.
Maybe you best back off the cap locks and act respectful from here on out.
If you're pissed off about something go kick your old man in the nuts for his part in the grand scheme of things.
