I think unless you have the build wrong you just need to run the box set up and run the car and make your adjustments from there. With experience you'll understand where the right belt tension is for you. If you built the car right the belt won't be too loose.

I may be wrong, but I don't see how else it could be built.
With the adjustment of tension on the rear belt it has exactly 3-4mm play

and the front one is still at the exact adjustment point as it is shown in the instruction.

This is actually a low end ESC, but if you are really on a budget, I would suggest to get the MC330CR instead which is a much better ESC.

Trying to figure out mm of belt push over the internet is....sketchy at best. Thats why I said just go with the stock(instruction) settings first. Its the only way to be sure that your starting from the same point as we all were.

The stock setting is two notches toward the center of the car at both the front and rear. If you feel they are too tight, rotate them counter clockwise, so that they are only one notch toward the center of the car.

Now, unless your reading the instructions wrong, OR there is some kind of defect with your kit, then one notch toward the center should be as loose as you need to go until the belts stretch some.

Don't know what else to tell you...

Here's something I just figured out and I can't figure out why I am just now noticing this. Tamiya's 70 tooth spur is bigger than a regular 78 tooth spur.
I knew they were different but never realized the numbers were so far apart

Cool

All right I hear you Darkseid.
I assembled it exactly as it shown. Yesterday after tightening the rear one I pull the trigger about 1/4 of the way while holding it in another hand and looked at the belts. The rear one was spinning with out moving left and right in the diff. pulley and the center pulley, but the front one (which was assembled as shown in the instruction) did move from side to side on the pulleys so after trying it on the parking lot and adjusted front belt by one click less tight, then the rear one.

Which of the 2 aftermarket motor mounts is better? (Xenon or 3 Racing) I find the stock motor mount doesnt absorb heat alot, so I thinking of upgrading to either one of them.

My Xenon motor mount is of very nice quality. Only thing I won't like is if/when Tamiya decides to come out with one!! hehe... Xenon is pretty good with their products. However their rear hubs for the 415/EvoIV is bad. They are suppose to be 0 degrees with less slop than the Tamiya units. But mine have like 3 degrees on one side and 0 or less on the other. So they aren't really drilled right. So I went back to my aluminum units...

I'll let you know if I find any. I thought I saw some 3degree ones somewhere... But I can't remember. Also Tamiya has some un-confirmed caster blocks that are not 4 degree. They may be 6 degree. I had some at one time. But I thought they may of had 2 degree as well. But I'm very unsure of this. Anyways... I'll let ya know in my searches....
