GOOD NEWS! I finally am getting a XXX-S so that I can test fit belts and figure out a way to get you guys the belts you need for less than 60 bucks each that they are going for on eBay. Sound good?

Mentioned this before but someone that can speak Japanese should contact Kawada. The Sigma used a similar single belt system and the belt may be the right size and tooth count. If not, Kawada may have the ability to make the belts or source them.

Well, here's the deal skater-deez1 and crew... the previous belts had almost too large a tooth so they rubbed inside the diff housings. I'm going to see if I can contact someone else who makes thinner belts if I need to in order to make this work. You guys can find all the other parts you still need, right?

Good news! Looks like I might have some belts soon! I bought a XXX-S to try some out because I had a hunch and it's looking very good. I anticipate having them within the month. Just thought I'd update! BTW... all XXXS cars have a tensioner, right? Or, is that just the longer belt? The one I have has a tensioner... that's the one I'm working with. I can cast and make pulleys and tensioners but that's going to cost extra.

For those still interested, let's start a list so I know who to contact when belts are available. This is not a for sale post... just throwing a line to know who still races and who would still want belts.

I know for a fact these belts will be as good or more likely better than the losi belts,i recommend snatching them up while they last. Had the first run fit they would've been awesome. They were way higher quality than losi belts!

Thanks dude. Yeah, I've sold my Street Weapon belts all over the world and even guys running mod said they lasted damn near forever.

So guys, how much adjustability is there in the HD tensioner???
