some use synchronous (timing) belts. STS profile, S3M pitch.

Default Belt

Most are Supertorque belts and if you try and run any other it won't last.

Yes. Best belts are bando polyurathane kevlar re enforced S3M. Some manufacturers choose these for their kits.

Where can you guys get random belts 3mm wide?

Corally guys would most likely be interested due to the short wheelbase setup using the tamiya belts
