hmm after reading through this thread, i realized the different between belt and shaft.
i just bought a yokomo SD few days ago, and i thought it was a wrong decision to buy shaft driven.
now i think either belt or shaft got their own superiority....

I have a TRF415MS and a TA05. While both are bashers, I've decided the TA05 will be my drift car. There's lots of hop up parts available (both Tamiya and A/M) and it's a very nice car to drive straight out of the box.

Having said that, I have gotten a rock in my belt and chewed up centre pullies and seem to have to adjust the belts all the time. If I could get a shaft drive car that drives like the TA05 I'd get that. I'm guessing the tamiya equivalent is probably the TB02 or something like that. A TC4 would probably do the trick too.

each has their own advantages/disadvantages, depends on the driving style also. but looking at the trend, especially on the professional level, seems that belt always have the upperhand.

as for me, i won't worry so much since i'm only racing on club level.

sorry if i'm wrong
in real life, when u drift u need touque, thru all rpm-ranges

and in r/c the best motor is a 27T, with gobs of touque, like a CO27, a 19t is too much for a starter, i boke bunches of stuff running a 19T before i knew how to drift
