jkerr43-The new belt system will be out for the car this week. Horizon should have them by weeks end....atleast I would hope. I will know more tomorrow when I get back to work. As for RC heat this month...probably not...there is a race in Tucson that weekend that I will probably be going to. As of right now there are no plans to make this belt system for the XXX4.

lozi-Like EddieO mentioned take a look at some of the setup sheets on the TL web page. I usually run the exact droop you mentioned but that is usually on a higher bite track. More droop on your track may give you more grip.

EddieO-I guess you were at the Birds....never got a chance to meet you. CYA at Rain City!

Todd, will the belt start being included with G+ kits, or will it always be a seperate piece?

brians11-The belt system will just be a aftermarket item and will not be included in the kit.

Yeah, I was there......those booths were pretty crowded and you looked pretty busy. Peter talked to you a few times, as did Sean, but usually I wasn't with them or I was talking with someone else. I didn't get to meet up with Dan from Fukuyama either or the guys from promatch! I met a TON of people though and thats the most fun I have ever had at RC event, even with the massive lack of sleep. I had about 100 people ask me if I got my BK bonez or if I really had a ferrari, pretty funny.

I will see you at the rain and so will my ferrari!

Later EddieO

How did it go Todge? I saw the results, "B" in 19 turn and "C" in Mod. It looks like there was some good competition again.

Also are there plans to expand the concept to the XXX4? You going to run @ the next RC Heat race again? It was nice seeing alot of factory guys out there last time.

Take a look at the press release...

None of the mod drivers had the belt cut, but I was told that its actually stronger than the yellow belt. I heard some of the stock guys were cutting them, but I didn't see any with it. I think someone told one of my guys that you can do it for stock and it would be fine.

Todd you might have whoever does the Losi website change "loser" to "looser" in that press release.

davepull-Yea I did that on purpose since you guys in the pits looked like your were tired. I figured blowing it up would wake your butt up. Cat Brains....no can you show all of us.

mcsquish-Yea it was a tough field....I had some issues with qualifying

Magic-You can cut every other tooth with no problem for stock and mod.

futureal-LOL....yea that is kinda funny. Thanks!

Todd >> So how "loose" are you supposed to run the belt for 19T motors? Any way to measure the loose-ness without trying to figure if its skipping for those of us that can bearly hear our wives yell at us?

I found a decent picture of your car on the track, Todd. I think this one was from the 19T main.
