Default XXX-S G+ belts?

Just wondering what are all the different belts for the XXX-S? I got my XXX-S used and it looks like it's time to change the belt. The one installed in it is blue, how ever the guy I got it from sent it with two other belts a yellow one and a black one. The black one seems to be longer then the yellow. I have changed to a MM7700 with the stock 48pitch and size spur in the car. Which belt should I install in the car? Thanks.

Louis

When I had my XXXS,which was a long time ago, we ran the black belt in ours. The yellow was the standard belt, not sure where the blue one came from.

IIRC the black belt was standard, yellow was more flexible (for stock racing) and blue was more durable (for mod etc).

I may be wrong there my 3 XXXS are stashed in a box somewhere!

If its longer then maybe it's come from a XXX4 4wd Buggy.

LATC3,

Parts are very easy to find, Losi still makes all the parts and still makes the car. So you can either get them from your LHS, or there is plenty on ebay or various online hobby shops.

I just sold mine. The yellow belt was the standard belt. There is a black belt conversion which comes with a belt and a different pulley.

The black belt conversion is still available and it's the way to go.

this is correct...

blue came in the standard plastic xxx-s
followed by the yellow upgrade.
the xxx-g+ came with yellow, the black belt was anupgrade to that, and came with the longer adjuster arm(the alum thing. the pully mounds to)

the black belt is longer than the other two thence the longer adj. arm.....

I recently resurected my xxx-s from the boneyard(been out of tc since 02)Tried a 19t and 3300 batts-setup was short shock conv'50wt and blue springs on front stock shocks 40wt and pink springs rear.rest of car was rosetti's parking lot setup from losi site.Sorex 32's for tires(no sauce) and track temp was 75 deg asphalt.Blue belt (loose),stock pulleys,stock plastic everything. car had tons of steering and a little on the loose side considering my rustyness and the fact that I have been running 1\8 buggy and truggy for the past several years.The racers at the track were all running 13.5 and lipos in their x rays and jrxs-r's. they said the car felt quite good to them.I have been trying to get the rear a little more"planted"for me.I realize and remember that the trick to get this car fast is a flowing driving style,but until I get rid of my nitro trigger finger Iwill try to get this thing's rear in check-it's not bad but if I hammer it out of the corners it will sometimes loop.I think it will get better as the temps come up a bit-today it was only 46 air temp and 75-80 track temp.---or I will get a cyclone---Try the above setup and see-

mine came standard with the black belt on it, and green spur gear. it is full graphite, green spring rear, orange front, with front sway bar. using a trinity p2k2 pro stock motor with a novak tc2 cyclone. seems fast for a stock, but could probally be faster with some gearing. back of mine also spins around on parking lot/driveway surface. havent messed with a rear swaybar yet, or springs
