Not much updates on this at this time.. or at least nothing that most of you guys will like..

I received a belt a few weeks ago and cut it down to size...I also cut every other tooth out of it.. After mounting it on the car I noticed a significant amount of drag.. I'm not sure wither this was due to the belt being too stiff or the position I have the idler. My guess is it has to so with the idler but I'm not sure..

I have decided to concentrate on the two-belt design. I'm going to be running this car in 17.5 blinky class and the two-belt design will be much better than a one-belt system in this class. The two-belt design I'm looking at pretty much the same design as the Schumacher mission. This will allow me to lower the lay shaft. Sorry guys but a two-belt system will simply work better.

I haven't been able to get much done on the car because of the lack of money at the moment and I have also been busy changing my major in school.

Updates should be coming in a couple weeks once I have more money

Pretty cool design. Reminds me of the kyosho kx one with the motor moved forward and the lay shaft/spur lowered.

I've mentioned my own 'shorty' TC project on here before. I've now completed the design and will shortly make the first prototype (once it warms up a bit out in the garage). I've started a separate thread to avoid hijacking this one:
