If it is a belt drive, then Oleg would have created a car that can be any drive you want to run, whether shaftdrive for spec racing or belt drive for mod racing... That would also more than double the Awesomatix market... I think they might also sell a belt conversion kit for those who already own the shaft version, and would like to add the belt version to their stable.......

somehow I think this will be too different for a conversion. Besides, you are all about shaft drive.... why would you bother?

Cheaper sounds like a good start. Although I would be interested to see what other changes there are from the 700. As others mentioned it seemed to be a quick car off from the bat but it's never really had that edge to beat other conventional cars (in the uk).

Looks intersting, but that is an old conversion mate

I'm interested to see how / where the motor fits etc in the new design.

I am only about shaftdrive, but I also understand Oleg's good business decision... Associated did the same, and still have both shaft and belt drives... AE and Awesomatix have my full support...

Well it should be cheaper and less part on the week to make the shaft drive feel more like a belt car. I am liking the belt drive idea, with the A700 Suspension.

I like to call the upcoming drive system Zak Propulsion. Please formulate your own opinions / guesses / theories.

We've been hoping to debut the car at the 2015 Halloween Classic ... But things just didn't come to plan.

Once more info can be made public-- it will be. Sorry to everyone who as PMd, called, emailed, etc. Pre-order will also be setup as soon as everything is finalised.

Well, better stick with your VBC.

Glad, I'll be enjoying both 'shaft' and 'belt' system courtesy of Awesomatix now. Surely, this will be great.
