yeah i've done it recently to the belts of my TA04 R

i did feel a difference ....... i could use my pinky on the hex hub an move the drivetrain .......... i couldn't b 4 !!
felt smoother when racing........ car would glide into corners.... rather than come to a quick stop n lose all my speed !!

Default Use A nail clipper .......!!

I used a nail clipper ....... to cut the belt .... i cut enough so that its flat an even
when u look at the belt side on ......... u cut it so it looks like the tooth was never there ........ exatly where it would start to rise up an ....like a hill then a flat ... then a hill ....... u should get my point(not very good at explaining things >>>!!

i've only done this so far ......... not touching the pulleys just yet .may b when i get some spare ones to play around with !!
