with belts you get wide range of gear ratios, with shafts you get none.

You can still adjust gear ratios on a shaft driven car.

of course you can but for belts you can change the number of teeth to just about any of the pulleys... and this affects the handling greatly..

My bad! I assumed, shaft was a shaft and belt had teeth and cogs. I forgot about the little spyder gears that are easily changable.

No problem. Although belt is definitely more adjustable (like mentioned above), you can still tweak gearing of shafts...I constantly tweak the ratio on my RS4 3 EVO (shaft).
