It does look blistering fast. All those pro’s are so damn good, with that said it sure appears that the L1 can be driven super hard, thus much more so than the previous K2. Even appears that the L1 has more jack on the straights as well.

I think it will be good to go. They did say they have done tons of testing on many different dirt/clay tracks.

I have done the front gear diff rear in my belt YZ4 wheelers as well as have friends whom use that combo in their SRX4 wheelers. Works very well on our low bite, bumpy dirt, dirt and more dirtyty dirt track.

Quite interesting to notice that some 25-30 years ago with the shuey cat or with the kyosho optima mid series the belt transmission was totally sealed off so that no dust or no gravels might interfere. Nowadays it is totally open.

Never had any bad surprise with that?

Ok might have something to do with the fact that the belts are hanging 1-2 inches above the chassis plate while the belts of the old kyosho or the old shuey were pretty much slipping on the chassis...

Does anyone else make long boss pinion gears, or just Schumacher? I did see a chart for what pinion gears to run with the different types of spur gears but not for different motors in the pdf manual. 76,80,82,&83 are the spurs available stock is 83 So i was thinking 26/83 to start with on 13.5. Any thoughts guys?

Back in ‘07-08, when I ran a Yokomo BX on grass, the belts were all open, you can even see the rear belt fully exposed at the rear.

When you tried to seal things up, the diffs etc, got a lot more dirt in, then they did when you left it all exposed. I always thought the dirt must be getting blown straight threw.

With sealed gear diffs there really is no worry about dirt and debri, as far as dirt and debri clogging the belts and pulleys, that won’t be an issue.
