Default Durability differences between Kyosho SP belts and regular ones?

Would anyone have any opinions on the durability differences between Kyosho SP belts and the regular ones?

Are the SP belts more durable?

Any experience is welcome.
Thx

In my experience, the kevlar belts are tougher but, if you run on a clean surface, keep your pulleys clean, etc., the SP belts wear great.

A bonus with the SP is how free they make the car roll.

It's seems that the M3 evo (with the updated rear pulleys (51 & 22T), only an SP belt is avail (FM644).

Can anyone confirm whether there is a kevlar variant that will fit the new rear end of the M3 evo?

thx

Kyosho only have the SP belt for the new rear pulley setup. The SP belts are awesome, frees the car up so much and they last forever.

But you can use Serpent belts as they both have the same number of teeth.
