tou should buy the best car that your lhs supports which in most cases is what is at the local track so whatever is the most populer at your track is what you should get unles its a bmi tc3 cos you have that allready

I buy most of stuff online, so what my LHS carries doesn't really matter, although they do carry parts for all those cars. I basically just wanted to know if I went with a belt car, like the Xray, if my acceleration would suffer a noticeable amount.

The new XRays with the low ratio pulleys spool up much, much faster than the older ones. I noticed a huge difference when I switched to the low ratio pulleys on my T1Evo2...

My xxx-s accelerates faster and is more stable during acceleration than a bunch of the tc3s I race with. IMO, acceleration has more to do with gearing, motors, and electronics...than it does drivetrain.

I like the T1R, and if I get that I plan on getting the low ratio pulleys and the spring steel layshaft for it. Anything else?

I'm not sure that the spring steel layshaft will work with the low ratio pulleys. I was told that you had to run the aluminum layshaft with them, and that's what I've always stuck with. You might investigate the weight differences between the aluminum layshaft and the spring steel one and then run which ever is lighter. You're talking about rotating mass, and lighter rotating mass will allow the car to spool up quicker.

i believe losirob is correct, i dont have 1.77 pulleys but i do know that you need a different layshaft to use those pulleys and i do believe it is the aluminium one. My friend had the same problem and bought the layshaft that come with the FK kit which comes with 1.77 pulleys.
