Exact price does not exist... depending on how well you know the shop owner etc you will get between $18xx and $19xx (or maybe less!). The new belts will run on Kawa pulleys.

I would stick with the stock belt.....BUT I was under the assumption that the stock belts where made of kevlar not rubber

Hey, since running wide tires a the rear are becoming so popular on the 1/10ths, any possibility of the manufacturers going beyond the widths of 31mm?

I think the way Nitro TC is going, it will be cheaper to run 1/8th in a couple of years.

I've estimated the cost of my car and I could have gotten a 1/8 onroad already. Then again I'd find some way to buy frivolous hopups for that too.

Don't you feel bad and angry when they call Nitro TC the 'entry-level' class or the 'beginners' class?

To run a decent car with a decent engine you looking at about 60% the cost of a top 1/8th with engine.

If I have this feeling, I wont never enter RC ! there are always entry levels. besides, the beauty of RC is you can select different area of interest. TC or NTC represents a hugh and common group of interest. Many tip top drivers go into TC or NTC and why do people say that this group belongs to entry level or beginners?
