Default I want a belt car that can handle the 4.5

I have a Atsushi Hara Pro 4. While the car is a rocket with GTB/4.5, I have to contend with the fact that if I run HPI's ball diff, it's a wrap. If I run with the spool, I snap CVD's and it's a wrap. So, that being said, I am leaning toward Xray, Tamiya or if Associated drops it soon enuf, the TC5. The question is, can these belted cars (the belts primarily) handle the power of the brushless if one ISNT running on carpet? I know their diffs are much stronger than HPI's (breaks my heart to have to jettison the car, but thats for another thread), and the parts support is better for the afore mentioned brands. So, I you guys' most professional of opinions, which would be the better to buy? I had my eyes on a used T1 FK05 and if a 415 comes my way, I am leaping on it a New York minute.
