hey guys... I have now managed to destroy many belts on this car. The white belts seem very easy to break or tear teeth off.

Anyone had any experience with aftermarket belts?

rcmaniax: Will your spool hold up to mod racing? If so, where can I get? I already use corally blades so the size sounds great.

This spool is right in development stage as I know. Will need about 3 weeks from what I read. You can find information here.

I was going through a lot of belts also, until i swapped out the centre pulley, it seems as soon as the teeth start to deform i encountered problems. I went back to the std centre pulleys and everything has been fine.

As for belts i think i will stick with the tech racing ones from now on, available at eastern creek from Christian Ternel, and are also cheaper.

I am swithing to a 415 from a TC3.5. This is my second belt car, I use to have an xray. The drive train on my xray was pretty free and with a lot of work I have my TC3.5 spinning as free as any shaft car. How free do you guys have your 415's and what did you do to get them that way. Thanks.

Hi Guys,

We apologize for the delay on the spools. We should have a small batch available by the end of the week and our main shipment should arrive next week. We changed the design slightly to further reduce the weight of the spool, so it now actually weighs 3 grams less than the one-way unit with the outdrives on.

We thought about using aluminum/blade setup, but the problem is although the blade help reduce the wear on the outdrives, our testing shows that the blade itself will show signs of stress and even crack in a few runs, which will require the racers to purchase the blades. And running an aluminum spool without the blade is simply not an option as the aluminum spool will notch in 5 runs tops. So at the end we decided to optimize the design and continue to make them out of heat treated steel

We are also working with the Tamiya USA TRF team and hopefully the USA team will be running our spools this year at the Reedy Race

Look for an update on our website soon for the TRF415 spools

Steve Wang

I guess your not the only kid on the block who makes spools now, might want to keep those things in stocks becase supply on demand will be the ace card everytime. This is not a flame
