I havent heard of any. But it would be great if Losi made like a flat carbon tourer with the XXXS Drivetrain and some parts in it. I still love to drive my XXXS.

Thats what the XXX-S prototype was, a twin deck carbon single belt chassis.

that's actually the one thing I really enjoyed about my XXXS, single belt and tension was super easy to adjust for track conditions. I just hope they put this one on a diet before they release it, the top deck is wicked wide and the chassis needs to be narrowed a couple mm's.

That is just the prototype shots of the xxx-s prior to release. That pic is many years old.

Are we talking about the XXX-S G+? It is been and gone. The JRXS replaced it.

doesnt having single belt make the delivery of power to the wheels less efficient?

the more belts you have the longer it takes the power to travel through to the wheels and more belts to replace, when they go
this is what i believe anyway

but think you never see any popular cars with more than 2 belts
example, 007, t2, mi2, rdx, etc.

the less the belt is "turned".. or "bent" on a pully, the more efficient it is. Larger pullies are the way to go. the "s turn" around the idler on the xxxs is where that car went wrong.. that and the belt slapping the bottom plate.

id love to see a two belt version of the xxxs.... wait... i had an rdx and 415.. jk..

Type R is revolutionary... give her a try.. youll forget all about the xxxs

It was always better to leave the belt loose on that car, just was freer that way. You hated the JRXS because you picked up a stone? Maybe you guys should think about sweeping the racing surface before you run. Every other car would be no different unless you ran a TC3 or 4 with the sealed diffs, but who wants to do that?
