Default 415 questions

Hello all, Just picked up my first Tamiya 415 MSX onroad car. Have been reading up on the thread and had a few questions. I have been reading quite a bit about belt breakage etc. What center pulley do I need to purchase? Also want to run a spool on the car which would you recommend and do I also need to purchase a seperate front pulley for that as well?

Thanks

And knowing they have the resources to change the belt every run, they are run as loose as possible without skipping.

There also seems to be some quality differences from belt to belt. Some wear forever and others appear to be about to go away after one run.

So when you are all taking about the new car, it is this:

You are talking about right?

...contemplating it, but want to make sure I am getting the "latest and greatest" if I do this.

I would say it will be about $400 and that means sign me up!!!! I can't wait to grab one of these, though I know I won't be able to sell my MSX for much.
