Default tamiya 501x vs yokomo BX

i was just curious of those who have owned or used both how they compare. more specifically reliability and ease of maintainability. if i go with another belt driven 4wd one of these will probably be my next car.

Two fellow racers got the Yokes at my local track. They're really nice buggies. Seem to handle well in the rough to. However the maint. seems high with the exposed belts even with the undertray.
