Belt or shaft?
Belts are used due to less rotational mass,allowing better response and increased acceleration.However belts are sensitive to dirt so must either be totally sealed or only used in clean areas.
Shafts are used when you can't keep the dirt out,such as off-road or car park bashers.

belts and pulleys are capable of being altered to gain different gear ratios as well. one of the major reasons the use of a belt over a drive shaft.
