Most hi-end race 1/10 electrics are belt drive. In fact most good new race RC cars are belt.
Shafties now tend to be the cheaper lower spec chassis, TB03, Ofna.
belts need a cleaner track to run on.

are you going to race it at dedicated tracks
or just have some fun on local car parks??

Checkout the Awesomatix thread if you are interested in the evolution of the driveshaft cars! Belt cars are pretty much the same design!
