Hope this helps.

Hi Guy's,
I want to get some replacement belts for my MRE, but all parts stockists I know of don't have the part number belts as stated in the Rheinhard Kit. Are there other belts that work fine?

The blue bolts are from Champ RC, they sell a Ti and Blue Aluminium screw kit... I think it works out at about 26 or so.
The capacitor is the one that came with the MRT MX TSX.

HiH

Does adding spacers under the front suspension block affect anything else? Such as anti-dive?
