Yeah, I haven't done an actual measurement, but noted the # of teeth and tried to look for something using that, but didn't work out. I was hoping someone has done this. I know some guys cut off every other tooth, at least in stock classes.

From what I've read the front is same length as trf417 and top. I'm still looking for a rear.

Front low friction belts 173t:

Top PO-PDT012
3racing SAKD116
TAMIYA BT-003

Rear low friction belt 62t:

Robitronic RA1961

There might be others but those are what I found based on 173t belt length 519mm, and 62t 186mm.

Anyone having problems with the glueing of the lay shaft pulleys? Mine keeps on coming loose, so every weekend I have to change them. Belt gets between bracket and pulley... I used brake cleaner and some sand paper before glueing, nothing seems to help...
And for th people in Europe, where do you get your parts? In Belgium it seems very hard to get parts, UK is much better but with the exchange rates...

Yep, I've had this problem a couple of times.

I just built one of these new for my 17.5 car and then just picked one up used that I want to run as my USGT. I bought Serpent Gears for my 17.5 car, since they were available on amain but they didn't fit the way I expected and I had to grind a little bit off of them. Where are you guys buying gears from? I know Spec-R makes them and you can get Panaracer gears, but what online store in the states are you guys getting these from? I would hate to wait weeks to get gears from another country if possible.

Tqrcracing has some of the panaracer gears in stock. Common gears are sold out like the 96 and 100 but 95 and 101 tooth are in stock.

I'm thinking about picking 1 of these up...what's the pros & cons you guys have found out? I used to run TC back in its heyday...last car I had was an X-ray T2. Looks like spare parts are reasonable on tower...it also looks like the best bang for your buck...lmk what you guys think please!

I ran mine for the first time yesterday (well, Friday) and was very impressed. It was pretty durable as I hit a lot of stuff hard, and handled really good. Driver skill was the biggest limitation for sure. It was my first time running a sedan but have run a lot of off road and know how to drive, but them corner dots send your car flying when you get a little bit too close :P I slammed a board hard while leading the B and made the motor shift forward a lot and nothing broke. My car has the flex control mount and steel outdrives but is otherwise stock as far as I know
