You mean like through a wormhole to a parallel universe?

How long a belt do you need? There's quite a few really long ones available for cars with single belt setups.

Don't bother trying to make one large belt from two other belts. You'll end up with two useless belts. Like Nazini suggested buy one belt that will fit the car.

I think it only works if you buy "Power Ranger" brand.

Is this for your RC car, or have you just put on a lot of weight recently?

hmmm... I don't think it will work for an RC car because whatever method you try to connect the two belts, the joint won't hold with all the rpm's a motor places on it. That's a whole lot of friction.

Think outside the RC box. Most of the belts are 3mm wide with 3mm pitch. you figure out what size you need an find an industrial supply that sells belts. In school it was called design by catalog.
