If you do alot of parking lot running and just doing weekend warrior racing than I personal go with NTC3 just because rocks and pebles and dirt like to eat up pulleys and belts. If you are going to perminant tracks and are going to be racing competitions then go with a belt driven car.

Of all the belt vehicles I have owned I have had one rock lodge in an NRS42. Nothing happened again in my Impulse, R40, or MTX3s.

I didnt say that it would happen, just that they are more prone to it. More parts up-keep on belt driven cars than shaft.
