I just built a new one myself. There's nothing like throwing a brand new whip on the track. The new kits have some little improvements. Nothing ground breaking, just quality of life improvements. I'm really contemplating another...like I don't have enough already.

What is the difference between a 3mm and 4mm belt. I run mod and need belts for the reedy Race.

The difference is the width, if you find you are wearing out rear belts fast try the 4mm.
The 3mm PU rear belt is very good for Modified racing, it will stretch a bit at first but will last a long time after that.

Yes the PU is recommended for modified racing. I've found the 4mm wide PU is needed for carpet racing but the 3mm PU is fine for asphalt racing. Run them tight as the R10 makes great forward traction and is easy to pop the belt!

DJC in the rear? Is this with both rear suspension setups? I hear it frees up the rear. How does this work for the layperson please?

Yes DJC's are used often in the rear as a tuning option with the R10. It takes a little of the joint bind out and frees the rear end up. If your hunting for that extra in the corner speed department it's a great part to have and try!

As for using it with ATS rear end I'm not sure it's a great idea. With the extra weight of both, I see the rear end being super loose. If grip is good it might work.

I have been running the 3mm PU with good luck so far. I still plan to change mine out after practice though, and again after qualifying if I can find my way into the mains. Better safe than sorry.

Yes only for the rear, i was told they wont be produced for the front as they stretch a lot more and are not really required. The standard front belt is fine for mod and will last a long time.

Ah! Opposite of lets say a dogbone in an offroad buggy. Now it makes sense. Thanks!

Leaving the bumper in stock form does tend to rub and will make the car lose steering or do odd things. Trimming will reduce weight in the nose and that will make the car more reactive/steer more.
