i'm not saying the shaft is bad, but it would be great to have the option.

i really dont think the belt is what is making the other cars so much better, i would have to guess its chassis and suspension design,i think AE made a pretty copy of a tc3 with there new car, thats why they are slow.......IMO

There is always a TC4 in the A main at major races. Just look at Cleveland, might not have won the race but still there, Baker is always one of the top 2 or 3 to beat.

There is nothing wrong with a shaft design. Just look at how well Hara did with the HPI Pro4 before they switched him to the Hotbodies car.

Shaft versus belt is more fashion than science.

I think the belt thing is what everyone wants right now. It is thee rage at this time. Belts or shafts are all fast.

anothing thing with belts is as long as its not a single belt design, you can make combinations of one ways/spools on the belt shafts to fine tune the car.
