It's strange. Sometimes I find my ordinary belt also wants to slip out with a front diff. But now, I don't find that problem even when I run with that flange collar from the oneway front pulley. Perhaps it's slightly got to do with the front bulkhead alignment or the ecentric cam...

Concerning the PRO belts, I would use them on a clean track but the track we run on tends to have pebbles here and there. So far I'm very happy with my standard kevlar belts. All 3 belts have not been changed since early January this year. And most of all, I particularly like using the 6361 from the front of the Vector / 950 1/8th scale belt as rear belt.
O.K., I made the mod. But it requires the fabrication of a shim to hold the flange collar up against the pulley. I used a nylon washer 17.4 mm O.D. and 1.5 mm thick. The I.D. is 13 mm, hollowed out with the Dremel.
Appears to track well with no binding, but havn't run it yet.

Use an O ring and lightly grease it so it doesn't bind with the bearing. Works like a charm...

Ran for 3 tanks and the Pro belt stayed on the front until I went to do some donuts (tyres were stuffed). I've put the side of the one way on the ball diff pulley and the o-ring, looks like it should do the job.

Hey Greg, Initial D might be on your side of the world, Middle Kingdom...He's on a quest to look for the "R I N G"!!!...

Whatever it is, don't let him get his hands on it.

Seems he's looking in the wrong place

Yup, mine is being installed this week too (gotta work on it in the evenings if 3hobby doesn't take up too much time!).

Love the front belt channel, the edges need the friendly grind of a needle file ... they're sharp!

Maybe I should leave them be ... would make a friendly reminder to any other car make that dare come near it!

If you look from the middle of the chassis, then it is about 1.85mm deep, but even in the milled out section, the area for the belt is further milled to an extra 0.5mm
