Default Team Losi XXXS RTR drive belt shot

Ok so while we were driving our XXXSedan today it made a sound like the spur gear was shot but when I did some digging I see the drive belt has lost its teeth. Is there an easy way to change that or do I have to take the whole car apart or can I change it from the bottom?

Thanks!

Unfortuneatly, the drive belt is probably one of the more tedius items to replace on the xxx-s.

You will have to remove both diffs, un-link the steering rack, take out the spur gear assembly as well as remove the bottom "plate" that covers the belt on the underside of the chassis. Consulting the manual would be the best way to accomplish this.

Thanks, I was afraid of that. Sounds like a big job, I'll look for my manual.

Yep ...the belt replacement is probably the most difficult fix on the old girl...but it's worth it. The belts are usually good for a long while but if they're older and haven't been used in awhile or you run low turn motors and get a lot of belt skip...they'll shed teeth like crazy. Personally I prefer the black belt and tension lever kit. (the belt is longer and the lever has a different material for the pulley). Remember to buy the "kit" because that black belt won't mount on the stock tension lever.
BTW, the manual is available online at the Losi site.
