I've heard rumors that Jaco is currently having some delivery issues. The Xceed tires use Jaco rubber so they're in the same boat. Not sure if GRP is still in business. Your best bet right now is the Matrix tires. Don't know who the distributor/ dealer is in Europe.

Default 4mm rear belt

hello,

i have ordered a whole bunch of low friction serpent belts, but i have ordered the 4mm rear belt instead of the 5mm version. these are the black serpent optional low friction belts.

are the 4mm belts ok? i read earlier that there were issues with 4mm belts snapping or jumping off the pulleys

i know the stock kit belt is 4mm orange.

what are you thoughts? anyone run 4mm belts, and how do they perform?

i ran them (rear) the whole day at yesterdays race , no issue works fine. i even ran them without having the plastic retainer that holds the belt...no jumping off the pulleys either..peace

The current xceed tires used by the team in 1:10 and 1:8 are not jaco based and readily available through dealers. Both light an carbon rim versions are very good performance wise. And of course fit the 733

Sorry guys but I had the stock belt on my car since the car was released last year and never snapped one. Even the orange 4mm never broke on my car.

Have a close look at the Team Drivers car photos, you will see they all run the brake pulley opposite to the instructions, I assume this reduces the chance of the belt skipping off the pulley.

It actually only makes sense to install the pulley with the flange on the outside rather than on the inside!

I run mine like the instructions and never had a belt fall of the pulley.

Anyone know how much the Xceed screw sets saves in weight?

Reading back through this thread, one person says it saves 100grams (which is awesome) and another guy said only 30grams....

Thanks
