Just bench test the car to see what happens when the belt is moving. It should not be a problem. If you have seen pics of Surikarn's 414MII you will notice no Belt tensioner used.
Steevo, You're wrong. Surikarn's 414mII does have belt tensioner. Check it out. http://www.teamorion.com/live/results-cars.asp?id=133
The pic is under Friday May 17th round 2

Sorry to say but I have 2 pics of it in 2 different RC Mags that clearly show no Belt tensioner. Also I have a pic of a TRF414MII used by David Jun with no tensioner on it as well.
You work it out

Calvin,
The best thing for you to do is try the car without tensioner and see what you think.
I found not using a tensioner on My TA04R and Xray had no negative effect at all.
The best way to learn is to experiment with your car and see what suits you best. By testing these things you get to learn about your car more. Its not going to damage the car in any way so give it a try and make your own decision.

Rick, how did Surikarn mount his servo? I don't see he use servo stand and how did he put antenna stand on lower chassis? I think he mount it on the hole for servo stand?

He cut off the bit that stickes out on the chassis to mount the servo and then cut the lugs off the servo and glued it further forward and closer to the center than on a std car. I cannot remember where the antenna on the lower chassis, i think he probably just drilled another hole for it. Rick
