Yeah, my plotter was slightly off on the cut.

I run this little bugger anywhere and everywhere except the grass. The city greenway is 100 feet from my street and runs parallel to my neighborhood so I have a place where I can run for hundreds of feet in both directions, or even for miles if I want to go for a walk, all without fear of cars. I also live in a 90 degree turn so I can see to both ends of the street. The speed that this little buggy can effortlessly hang the turn is almost unbelievable. Then there is the parking lot at work, which is known for mangling low slung RC vehicles. This handles it with ease.

I'm so impressed with it. If they ever release a B3, I won't wait so long to get one.

I know this is super old thread, but... Do you know guys where I could possibly find a replacement rear belt? Originals are all sold out... Or do you at least know pitch/tooth count?

Thanks!

Probably eBay at this point. I’ve seen a few they are about 10$ but international shipping is going to be a problem

Not even eBay, unfortunately. But I did some measurements, and I believe that these are the correct values:
Length = 10mm (or maybe little less)
pitch = 2mm
ht = 0.76mm
width = 4.2mm
49 teeth

Based on these measurements, it seems that it is belt that is commonly identified as STD S2M-100 (50 teeth), width is variable based on what one needs (as they are cutting them from a sleeve). Since the original is super tight, I guess that one extra tooth won't harm anything, so I'll try that.

if that belt does work for you I just ordered a second parts car that I might be able to sell you the belt from and I can buy another later if needed. Though might be pricy for shipping.

could have sworn I saw one on eBay today but oh well

Since we have resurrected this thread anyway whats the best choice for servo/servo saver combo these days? Would the Mini T 2.0 servo saver work? The used car I bought had a HB65mg but it seems to have centering issues (returns a click or 2 short of center) and the servo saver on it is really sloppy (plastic snap ring of some sort). When I tried to run it the car wouldn't turn properly because the servo ends up too far back with this servo saver. Ive read though a lot of post on this forum (about 65 pages through now) and I still cant seem to find a consensus on what combination of servo saver and servo to use plus now all the parts are discontinued so its even more confusing.

Suggestions? Anyone done this recently?

[ASC21329] Rear Belt RC18T2/B2

Wow, I have to say that I was really sloppy when I was searching for it. I've spent probably two hours doing it, yet couldn't find any. Thank you!

However, I'm happy to report that the measures I took are right, and the belt I have ordered works perfectly. Cost me like $2 a piece. It is 50t, which works great, there's still enough tension in the powertrain, and there might be a bit less stress.

Thank you. Yeah, I was aware of the problem, but didn't know that there's a solution to it. Perhaps I should have tried to Google that first :-). Anyway, thanks again for teaching me something...

I finally built mine up and ran it around runs real smooth on a hobby wing 5400kv brushless after all the tweeks and a crap ton of filing to get rid of all the rides and clashes. Rear Diff needed filing, servo mount for a mg65 servo (1mm a side) one of the belt gears needed filing and the set screw on the motor needed filing.

Iím loosing springs and dog bones every time I go out and itís driving me nuts. Iím gonna try some wltoys 959 dogbones and maybe swap rear diffs because my cups are worn. I just canít seem to get it to a reliable state anyone got any tips on dogbones?
