Red face I used to have a belt driven RC10 but for the life of me I can't remember......

what it was called or who made it. I recall the name hyper something......hey it was a long time ago . This was 2WD and not the MIP 4wd conversion as I had that as well.

Someone jog my memory please.

There was the hyperdrive pinion/spur thing ? I think someone made a belt gearbox also?

Yep, Hyperdrive made a belt system to replace the standard spur and pinion.

As for the belt drive gearbox - I think it was made by a company called Track Master, and it was an open design with carbon fibre plates.

Allec and Lane (a&l) did a great beltdrive transmission for RC10 (yellow casing).
It was right before the stealth existed and after the old complex transmission.

That was made for direct drive cars at the time and it either required you to get a Hyper drive car or a Hyper Drive motor pod that would allow you to mount the motor in the other direction in order for the belt to be driven in the forward direction.

That also came after the three gear tranny made by MIP which the stealth tranny was modeled after. The A&L was fast effecient and quiet until the belt broke.

BTW I also had the MIP 4WD conversion. The problem with that was the hub carriers and knuckles from MIP were very week and poor in quality. (injection molding wasn't his best at that time)

and the fun when you would yank the front diff out and it was tangled up in the chain up against the rear shock tower

You could also do a conversion to the original 6 gear Associated transmission so the top shaft came out the other side of the gearbox, then cut off the bent part of the motor mount to mount it to the other side of the transmission, and you could use the Hyperdrive system with standard motors. I think the same trick worked with the Stealth tranny.

Ahhhhhh, memories.......

belt drive version, my car got the nick name of "what noise."

By the way the Manawatu club has got an new off-road track (nearly finished) next to their new on-road track in Feilding. It's very similar in shape to the old Palmy track.

Default A&L belt transmission

I used a AL tranny back in 1990, i sold it last year at e-bay, here is the a picture of that lovely thing.

The tranny comes with a motorplate made of fiberglass, not the best material for motorplates !! I made my own alloy motorplate.

The MIP tranny was derived from a Tamiya 3 gear tranny, but made to fit the RC10.
Tamiya has had alot of firsts!
