Out of these cars, Pro4, R3, Mi2, Evo4, Trf415. 415, and the Pro4 are my top two choices, but since the Pro4 is chaft, and i have a shaft, i'll get the TRF415,. Anyone know where I can get one for a cheaper price than 349.99 er, I think it was 359.99. www.ultimatehobbies.com is the site. Steve, can you match the price? They also offer freeshipping. Thanks....
vi3tishduy,

Please email me or call me, I'll see what I can do. Thanks

vi3tishduy,

Because you're underage and the card is not under your name, if you need to place an order, please make sure she is near by as well (I would need to speak to her on the phone to confirm the order) Thank you

Just Curious, but does anyone know if the 415MS "will" be the Worlds kit... or will there be a 415 WCR kit after the 415MS is sold? Dave? Any rumors? Steve?

I just get my low friction belts + belt stabilizer.....The front belt tend to wave from right to left on the pulley...Is it normal or there is a way to correct that? Sorry I'm newbie to belt drive system...How do you set the tension on the belts?? Factory setting is like rear too loose and front little bit tight...Any tips for me? Also I cant get my car free like my old shaft tc3....Is it possible?

I tightened the rear belt one tooth and left the front at stock setting with no problems....Outpuched & outdragged a TC3 with my unmatched batteries and a fresh out of the box, untuned Epic motor if that means anything

I think the waving is normal (note: I use the stock belts) I never really worry about how long my drivetain spins compared to other people. As long as it spins a good few seconds smoothly & doesn't bind I'm cool. I don't think having a drivetrain that can compete with Lex Tyler's for longest spinning will increase my lap times at a club racing level

For outdoor asphalt & parking lot surfaces...do yourself a favor and get an A bridge block right away or else you'll be pushing out of the corners like a dump truck!

And I hope you don't get the wrong block in the mail like I did... Cost me the A-main win! Theres always next season

You can help control how the belt ride on the pulley with some 10mm shims and the center belt tensioner also help guide the long front belt. Belt tension is adjusted in the bulkhead. Run the car with the belt in stock tension for about 1 race weekend and then tighten it up I have my belts about 2 clicks tighter.

GT Racer,

The A Bridge block is for the front of the car (the kit comes with D Bridge block) The A bridge block is narrower than the D block and it will sweep the front hinge-pins back a bit to help the car turn in a bit more.
