I heard the white low friction ones don't last that long. Or is that false information?

Yokomo belts are 516 and Xray 513 teeth. Since I run my belts quite tight (mod), 516 might be too much (?)

I still have the kit xray front belt, and I cant get it loose enough but I use the kit yokomo belt in the rear.

The white low friction belts are manufactured differently not only are they lower friction but they are also stronger.

Perhaps try less belt tension, the looser they are the longer they last provided they don't skip.

Tnx for the input.

I already use Yokomo rear belt. I heard the oppsite about the white belt, but I might give it a try.

My belts are certainly not too tight, especially for mod. Have been racing mod for many years now, so tension is not a problem. I know when my belt will skip. And it will if it's too loose.

Are there no other brands available that make rubber belts? I have been searching a lot, but I can't imagine...

Pretty much all the cars use belts manufactured by Bando.

They have a few different belts with the same teeth profile with slightly different properties rubber and re enforcing.

Spec R, 3 Racing, Xray and Yokomo are bando belts.

The white xray belts are the same belt as the yoko white belts and I can assure you the yoko belts last.

Ran them on carpet last night, back to back checking, PSS with 500cSt against 4x1.1 with 400cSt.
Couldn't honestly feel any difference between them.

I did two runs with each (proper rounds of quali) swapping back and forth and my fastest laps were separated by 3 hundreths across the runs!

Perhaps they work better on more flowing track, ours tends to have some tight 180's etc, and running boost we tend to brake late and try and throw the cars in.

Asphalt testing at my local track on Sunday

Ran the PSS shocks at my asphalt track today and I do think they helped a little with consistency (same oils etc as indoors)

Belts break when they are too tight. Try the kit settings if you are breaking a lot of belts.

Thanks, but certainly not too tight or not too loose. They just wear out (not breaking) because I race on a large open track, which stresses out the belt alot under accelerating and braking. I'm not a novice in this hobby.

I owned a Capricorn EP, which came with rubber (coated) belts and they lasted way longer. Now I'm trying to find the same for my Xray..

Spec -R makes an incredible rear belt. Seems like it has more rubber on it. Its what I use now for large tracks.

Yes, the belt Chris refers to is the Spec R R1/R2 belt. Not the Spec R Low friction belt, which wears quick. The belt for the R2/R1 is also only like $3.50 and on large tracks, it's the only way to go.
