When the cars are weighed it done after your run with worn tires!

Hey guys,

This past weekend we had round 6 of the Florida State Series. We got to run all day Saturday with 3 qualifiers and then got rained out on Sunday. In sedan I was able to TQ and with the rain also got the Win. Ronnie Regalado was able to take the TQ in 1/8 scale with the 801 and also got the win with the rain.

Cars are looking really good here in Florida. They have been pretty dominant all season. In the points they account for the tops 3 spots in sedan and 5 of the top 6. In 1/8 Capricorn is also leading with 2 out of 5 top spots.

On Facebook I saw someone who mounted the MRX-5/MTX-5 box to the car. It's also possible to use the Xray NT1 box when you turn it around and make a little adaptor.

The standard belts are a harder rubber material. the long life are more of a softer material and wrap around the pulley with less resistance.

The long life say "hardlight" on them. I think!

I think they also say made in Germany or something like that.

Then the long life are the true hard rubber belts that provide the most drag. I know when I got my kit I got the hardest one's and figured the optional one's were the other, but I must have been wrong. I must have had it backwards in the info I was telling you. Sorry!

They use the same part number for both. If you go to their web site you can see the same part number brings up both belts.

The standard belts are the low-friction ones. These have a sort of fabric texture as you can hopefully see below:


The long life belts have full rubber teeth and are a bit less flexible but will last a bit longer. These belts have 'LF' behind the part number, which is the same as the standard low-friction belts.


Personally I prefer the standard low-friction belts since they free up the drivetrain quite a bit and they last pretty long if you ask me combined with the kevlar pulleys.
