Too bad shafts only give you one of the 3 things you mentioned

Honestly guys....with the current crop of cars. All you need to do is build and race. All the work has been done in the R&D office before the cars were released. Front belts should last at least a year of hard running. Rear belts should be replaced 2x per year if you run every weekend. 3x per year if you run mod.

FYI, WD40 increases belt drag by softening the rubber and making it sticky. Leave the belts dry. This was old tech that didn't pan out.

Clipping teeth makes the car smooth in the bench but increases tooth loading and does nothing on power except cause skipping and cause excessive belt wear.
