I know what you mean, I had the same problem. I just trimmed down the part that hit the servo so it cleared (just). You may also need to trim the thread on the ball joint.

Is there an intelligent way to tell which belt is slipping?

Look at the teeth on the belt, if it's slipping it'll start looking worn.

How do you guys balance this chassis using Lipo running at 1350gs? The only way I can do it is with a slight overhang of the Lipo.

As you can guess by my user name balancing hasn't been much of an issue for me in the past

Its pretty much a necessity to hang the lipo out of the car.

I'm using the lipo weights, car is balanced and the lipo is secure, however its 30g overweight. Looking at making a carbon lipo holder to move the battery out further and still use a strap to hold the battery in.

I use the LiPo weight kit in my T2'009, and tried putting equal weight in all 4 corners (to get the weight up) and it was actually battery-heavy (with LiPo!) - removed 5g from the battery-side and it was balanced perfectly.

at the novak race i had
1 t2 009
2 tekin rs (short wires)
3 trinity duo2
4 futaba digital non low profile
3 true rc 5000 2s lipo
jaco blues
battery tray (slot type) weighed about 100g
i had to add 3 7g waits behind the motor
with body and clips and transponder this all came out to be 1426g 1 g above minimum weight. i had the lipo slanted out enough to were it was not hitting the top deck
hope this helps.

My 009 shows no signs of the rear belt skipping, but the front is for sure. You can see what looks like wear on it. I bought a replacement front but never bothered getting the rear. This is on my 009 running 13.5 rubber tires on carpet with a spool. Hopefully this helps.
