I like my belts loose too, but I've seen some of these tricks people do to "free up" the drive train and they can spin their tires forever, but eveything feels sloopy loose and can't be laying down the power.

my xray t1r now spins for about 2 seconds my older tc3 spun for 18 seconds but was much harder to control when on throttle. if your car is too free i found that seting your speedo up to give a smoother throttle response helps alot and makes the car much easier to control whilst giving you more top speed. i did this in my tc3 and it felt amazing. it felt like a smooth belt drive but with more top end.

tight belts lose more power thru friction... its a fact...

They dont have to be sloppy, but free to spin is a start
