You're killing me.

Ask Speedworld to order you some TAM53599 (I think). Speedtech RC also has them (although they're out of stock right now).

Is it generally a good idea to run a one-way on a rather small track. It is 80 x 50 ft.

Default XRC cars Touring Car Head to Head comparison

I just read XRC Cars Magazine Touring Car Head to Head comparison in its current issue. (Only belt driven cars)

Quite an extensive test, including 3 drivers and three days of Racing.

Bottom line; they gave first prize to X-Ray. Losi XXX-S G+ tied with Tamya for second.

What hurt the XXX-S was the fact that it did not come with a one-way.

The constant complaint over 3 days and 3 drivers was lack of steering. They all said the XXX-S was stable and easy to drive and had lots of straight line speed and stabilty.

They spoke of adjusting all the cars after their first and second day but complained that they could not get rid of the XXX-S understeer. This confused me, I thought you could always adjust a car to have more steering by scarificing in some other area.

also, understeer seems to be my biggest problem with the car ... I am not sure my setup is really optimum and I know my driving is not.

You can read about the older blue and yellow belts; but, that would be wasting your time.

The black belt and the new blue belt (not available yet) are what you want. They both utilize a new longer tension arm that eliminates the radical belt wrap of the old shorter arm (comes with RTR and G+ kit). This frees up the drive train significantly. You want that.
