There is no carpet track in HK. 4mm chassis might not be a popular item there.

Slop in the hub carriers? I thought this car came with the hinge pins that are fastened with a grub screw.....those completely eliminated the slop in mine

On the losi XXXS cars they clipped the teeth off of the belts and on one of the xray cars they ground down the front diff pulley. Not sure about grinding the pulley but clipping the belts is probably going to work

Soaking the belts for about a week in WD40 seemed to make them more pliable.

put a 6-turn in the car with the belt set tight...2-3 packs, then re-adjust the belt to the loose setting...works like a charm...

I believe Marc is now running his old 415. No MSX kit on his car anymore.
