Default xxx-s hop ups worth it?

is the black belt conversion kit worth it for the xxx-s g+, because my friend cutt everything other tooth off my yellow belt already and we were wonderin if the belt is a noticeable difference on a smaller more accelertion track, we got the car hooked up really good now we just need speed we won sunday and broke the track record by 2 laps because of his motor tuning skills, now we wanna break it again next sunday wut can we do 2 make the car go faster

I would say that the black conversion is better than yellow belt..
it's also thet use different pulley too the help reduce drag in the drivetrain

Don't cut any teeth off the black belt! It's more free than a cut yellow belt.

black belt eliminates the belt skipping/clicking, so you should have better acceleration.
