If you need some of the longer belts, I have some. PM me for more info.

kschu-the 18 tooth center pulley is what I am referring to. I have not tried the 16 tooth delrin HB pulley.

I'm sure the 16 tooth pulleys would fit as well, should be the same mounts as the 18's.

So far everything they have released has had extremely competitive pricing on it, so I'd expect the new parts to be the same...

It should no problem, Tamiya cars mount their plastic gears just like that.

Dont worry about that Jason. Serpent parts are considerably lower priced that their TC competitors.

The new S400 Aramid belts are probably the toughest long lasting in the market. You will get most life out of them with the stock S400 pulleys, or delrin 16T Pulleys from HB Cyclone/3Racing.

Once you change to the non-Serpent 18T pulleys and need to use longer Belts, then you must make sure the non-Serpent longer belts are as tough and long lasting as the S400 belts(which I doubt) so they can work well with the aluminum pulleys...although the delrin pulleys might be just slightly better for belt wear in the long run, but the delrin pulley will wear a bit faster than the belts. Its a trade off...although with the lighter delrin pulleys you might have a slight acceleration advantage or improvement due to less rotational mass

No, the Tamiya pulleys won't fit. I havent seen any wear on my updated belts at all with the aluminum pulleys, once you switch over you should have no problems.
