My mistake, to change spur gear on pro4, need to take out 14~15 screws.

That's totally wrong.

With 12 screws you can have COMPLETE access to the WHOLE drive train, including the front and rear gearboxes, spur gear etc...

13 screws if you use the central stiffener.

It's still more than on the SD or Evo 3, but I find it very nice to be able to do that, you have a clear view of the drive train.

Back to the subject, both are very fast, and both hard to maintain. Yet I found a belt driven car should be easier to drive than a shaft driven car, because the drive train feels smoother on power.

Do you have Pro4? Because you're wrong. You forgot to count screws on steering and motor mount. You need to remove entire upper deck you know?

Well, I like the clean look on Pro4. I might get it again, if my pocket allow me.

I don't own a pro4 and I did count these screws. I know what I'm saying, I did it myself on a friend's car.

What you forget, is that you don't need to get the upper part of the gear boxes unscrewed, you can keep them attached to the upper deck, so that's 4 screws less than what you think.

What I forgot is that you need to have the shocks unscrewed, so that's 4 nuts (like me, he he) I forgot, not screws.
