Thanks! I have a pair of spare pulleys and know idea what count they are. On another note does anyone know of a source for the 4-40 screws used in the chassis? I only need a few not the whole set.

Thanks in advance!

Kind of hard to see but the 41 tooth has no ridge on the outside outter edge,while the 42 has the ridge....sorry about the poor picture quality. In the second pic you can kinda see the ridge.....kinda.

I just discovered that, while in storage, the belts for my XXX-S became brittle - the one in the car blew apart when I tried to run it... No - problem - I had gotten spares "back when" - pulled out a spare - it had gotten stiff and brittle too.

Is there any way to "recondition" a new/unused belt...? I know there are "belt conditioners" available in automotive parts stores...? WD40 (it seems to do a million other things)...? What is frustrating is that I have enough new-in-the-package belts, but they all seem to have gone "bad"... Weird...

Ideas?

When they fall apart, they're garbage. Losi's belts had a shelf life and most all are expired by now.

The yellow belts are the worst, the blue ones, not so bad. What the difference was, haven't got a clue.

Yellows had more rubber and blues had more urethane I believe.
