What is the difference from the PRO belts to the regular ones ?!?!?
Should I get a alum rear diff gear ?
What are your advices to buy (thing's i could be needing soon) ..
Serpent sells a pack of parts pretty cheaply which have all the nylon suspension parts included. Buy one of these and then see what you end up braking. Typically, if you're crashing a bit, you end up breaking the front arms and steering blocks at some point.
The rear of my car is still almost original (after 1.5 years) so normally nothing much breaks there - but in the race pack, you'll have some spare just in case.
I wouldn't bother with the pro belts. The run smoother, but are softer and wear quicker. Also after a couple of runs, you have some oily gunge and dust from the track in the pulley, which would negate the advantages of the pro belts over the standard ones.
I think the only alu rear pulley is available from 3racing and I've heard that the teeth wear to points and end up cutting your belts - the standard pulleys are fine. I've just worn out my first one after a lot of driving.
Start off with the race pack http://www.the-border.com/product.ph...&cat=81&page=7
