The stock top deck had a little to much flex for me. So I wanted to try the VTD. Has the same side to side flex but stiffer front and rear. I will try it on gray carpet Saturday.and asphalt on Sunday. I will also try the stock top deck to see which one works out better.

As the owner of several, I can tell you flex was not the kx-one weak area what really killed it was the high cg it had and the super weak one-way bearings up front. Terrible racing chassis great drift chassis tho. As for top racing, as far as I know, they went under got several of their single belt conversion not bad in my opinion.

Oh, dude, I need this, that one nice looking ta07 I have the ta07 pro and been waiting on the ms to come out but after seeing yours I see myself ordering an Exotek conversion pretty soon. I also love my XXX-S great street basher

Default Query

Hiya folks,

I have a ta07 too and am interested in the ta07ms. Is a single belt touring car capable of running in mod?
Has anyone tried with mod motors and how low is possible before the tranny explodes?

Thank you for any thoughts or experience on this matter.

Cheerio!

Alexander

I recently tested an 8.5t motor on my top racing single belt chassis for drifting and it handled it fine, no real problem so I don't see why the TA07 could not handle it.

I never tried mod motor on single belt TC....If the chassis is very stiff like the losi XXX.. then the would be n/p in mod...just My 2 cent

Wait is that an actual problem with single belt Tc? Are they known to not handle power? Because I have to say I have put some low turn motor on them even my kamikaze Kx-one I put a 10.5T in it. The diff took it fine but the front one way is like no, I think I rather self-destruct no matter what even on a 21.5t motor

You've only got half the amount of teeth driving both axles compared to a two belt car

Care to elaborate on that statement?

A single belt car has both the front and rear spool/diff driven with only a single belt wrapped @ halfway around the drive/layshaft pulley. A two belt has both the front and rear belts wrapped @ halfway around the drive/layshaft pulley(s). I imagine with the current level of torque from brushless motors the tension on the belt required to prevent skipping would offset any potential efficiency advantage?

oh ok, I understand what you mean now, I really can't talk about the efficiency aspect of a single belt much as I haven't tested it. But the tension at least in my case hasn't been too different from what you expect in a 2 belt car.
These are the single belt cars that I currently own
Kawada Sigma 2
Losi XXX-S
Kyosho Kx-one
TA07
Top Racing Single Belt
I always hear on old threads talking about the efficiency aspect of a single belt tc but have yet to see any actual evidence that backs it up. I personally like them because of how they look single belt tc always looked cool to me.
