RC10 4wd system was around a few months, but a belt system in an offroad car, no way.

Losi JR Pro cool on paper, but a piece if junk. The shocking part is that the JR2 was a better car at nearly half the cost and then some. That was the car to have for a while in the offroad circuit.

M.I.P. 4wd car. It used a std. 3 gear MIP tranny and a piece of a speedometer cable off the top gear to spin the front diff. with a Tamiya frontend. All mounted on a fiberglass chassis. Very limited production!

The later versions, chain or belt drive, did work very well, especially on rough tracks. That cable drive was funny though.

Here's one, Robinson 18deg kingpin conversion kits for the RC-10.

Belt driven offroad trannies like the kyosho triumph. There was also the Lethal weapon, hyper drive, and the track master one as well. Never really caught on for offroad.

How about the Trinity "Equalizer" stock motor? Sealed endbell, fixed 5 deg timing, was supposed to revolutionize stock racing and prevent cheating. Then people found out how slow they were and they never caught on.

I really dont think that a car that has been avaliable to the public for like a month and is winning local and regional races around the country is a flop. There are a couple Jrxs's around here that would definatley whoop up on mostly all other cars. Now mind you the drivers are exceptionally good but the car still has something to do with it.

I think it was the Maxxim FF. A couple of guys here converted some RC-10 to front wheel drive by using some Yokomo front end parts and mounting the tranny up front. They didn't work either.

The TRX-1 was a conventional 3 gear transmission design, no belts there.

Schumacher Off Road cars and the TRX-1 were both fairly common at our local off road track back in the early 90's.
