I wouldnt pay more for them than the Mugen belt though so I guess it depends how much you have to pay for the genuine belt.

If you use the Mugen belts be sure to use the option belt which is much more pliable and lasts well.

Yep....

Not the truest gears in the world (in my experience) but work fine if meshed properly.

Prefer the Mugen genuine parts if available.

Oh and my mates think the blue looks silly.... but I quite like it.

I, and a few guys I know, have modded the rear bulkhead in order to loosen the rear belt.

What you do is make a notch at the rear where the two halves join. This enables you to rotate the adjusters even further.

Loosens up the rear belt nicely with no longevity compromises.

Hey guys, im having a slight problem..

My steering servo horn touches the battery pack when its at full steer. How can I solve this? Im using one of those long type of servo horns, I dont know what you call them, but its plastic. I found that the plastic is not bent out of shape because of this..

The only thing I can think of is changing the servo horn, but I dont know which type to use or if this is the correct fix at all.. Thanks guys !

Chris,

Chris,
If you are using a futaba servo this it the one you want. http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXFVM2&P=ML it is a 20mm arm designed to car use.

Chris,
You could just remove the spacers (or use thinner) on the servo mount.
