Your best bet would be to look in the 20 other theads that have been started on this same topic. I'm sure you'll find the answer there.

I remember reading another thread on tis about 2 weeks ago and am still to find a photo.

A photo is worth a thousand words and can confirm that there is such a car in existance

i believe they are testing a belt drive because they are not doing so well on carpet with the tc4. i have raced a tc3 on carpet for 6 years with great success but did not like the factory team tc4. its too stiff even with the spine plate and standoffs removed. but the car kicks ass on the asphalt so it depends how important success on carpet is to them. all i know is if they do come out with a belt drive i will be first in line!!
