thanks, I ended up getting some Japanese made belts from ebay, but do not know what brand they are. Half the price of xray belts. Hope they last longer, only had about 30 packs through mine.

Default Belts

What issues are you guys having with the belts? Mine always look like new and have never broke. Is it possible they are rubbing on something or maybe the setscrew in the pinion is chewing them up?

You might find lack of experience with Xray's (eg; how to tension them) is some folks biggest drama re belts,

I've run most classes including drag spec with is more powerful than any mod you'll get & have never had a problem with Xray belts

One young guy (Ben C) from our group who runs mod consistantly has had the same belts on the car for 12mths..

just had a look at a t311 with exotek chassis and zeppin racing steering brace for the servo position mod....then i looked at a serpent s41l...the steering mount points look so similar....has anyone thought of trying the serpent bellcrank system on the t311 for the servo mod???

Doesnt look like that zeppin chassis supports the east-west servo mod. There is blank space where you would normally drill the new hole for the servo mod

In a pinch I needed a rear belt for my t3 11 today, so I tried a TOP one that was the same length as the xray and it worked fine, seems a bit more beefy(in a good way) also.

I must say this also, I have been running the belt that snapped for a good 6 months in boosted 13.5 and 17.5 and it worked perfect.

But then i put in a 5.5 without tightening the belt and sure enough the torque was just to much for my particular tension setting(user error).

Also based on what i have experienced it seems a gear diff in the rear works the belts harder because there is zero give when applying power, where a ball diff may give just that amount of slip to lesson the torque on the belt, in turn saving the belt.

My 2cents

I am not sure if it's a motor output change or a change in belt vendors but I have noticed that the belts have more of a tenancy to twist than before. I have yet to have one twist on my cars but I have seen other peoples cars actually fully rotate the belt. The optional tensioner helps with this.

xray or RW make good 64p spur gears and any 64p pinions will work
