Default ON_ROAD gpx-4

i thought i had a possible clutch problem due to the burnouts i was doin, eventually i got around to looking at it, and it was only the plastic cog that the rear belt runs on, was rounded right down i was stoked to find this out cos i have like 5 cogs spare when i bought it so thats not gonna cost nothin
i still need to buy a front belt for it, the last time i used it i was running it with ONLY the rear belt, man i was hard to control.. anyone have any ideas as to why my front belt kept snapping, i think it might of been snapping the front because the rear could of been slipping, making the front belt spin harder, therefor breaking it?? anyone had headaches with this car??

Never had any problems with my GPX-4. There must be something binding up along the drivetrain. make sure that everything is turning smoothly. Iv never heard of anyone continuously snapping belts. Keep in mind that the belts will expand and move outward when on power. so make sure nothing is hitting. Sorry not really sure what you are referring to when you mentioned "cog"

I hope this isn't a silly question but the prob with belt snapping is it with a RTR car or the Pro?
