Yeah man that's exactly what I'm walking about. Finally a company willing to step out, however it's only a conversion. The only thing I would like to see is the lower CG design features we are seeing on the newer car designs. Look at how very little RM there is in the drive train. How simple the design is and low parts count. It doesn't free wheel for a minute because there is so little rotating drive train mass! lol Losi really needs to get in the game again. We are starting to finally see different dampening shock designs. I always thought the HPI RS4 mini shocks were a amazing design. They are super low cg, centered on the chassis, small/light weight, but they could still use a spring/fluid dampening. This to me looks like the perfectly designed dampening system.
Any thoughts?

There's no less rotating mass in the single belt drivetrain compared to conventional dual belts. There's the same number of centre pulleys (2) and if anything the single belt arrangement has slightly more total belt length.

Just looked at Top Racing website and didn't see a single belt car listed. Can somebody lead me in the right direction.
BTW, been a good long while since I was active on the forum but really glad and amazed to see the xxxs still being talked about.

OK guys I thought I would post this here. I have a XXX-S graphite and a ton of parts in a bag. I have no idea what all is in there but I do know that there is at least one MF spur gear adapter. If anyone is interested I will work up a price for the entire lot only. Reply thru message.

I bought a metal idler pulley for my XXX-G, but the stock bearing won't fit. Does anyone have an idea what bearing is supposed to fit this?

Thanks in advance!

I never had either, but the plastic are getting hard to find. It seemed like a no-brainer at the time.

I already have two of the metal pulleys and I want to make them work so I don't need the plastic ones.
