No Other belts fit (Tried Mugen and Kyosho)

I bought belts from Tough Racing on e-bay. Cheap, good quality, and excellent service.

Hi mate,

I live in Europe and I could tell you where to get them from over here, but I'm sure it wouldn't be a problem to find out whoi distributes Team Titan in AUS, right?

I think for you, Tough Racing from South Korea would be the easier choice. Belts are the same:

Regarding the belts, I have been using both the Motonica kevlar belts and the kevlar pulleys. Both the belts and pulleys seem to last longer than the stock belts and black pulleys. There is definitely less rubber build up on the teeth of the pulleys, almost no build up in fact, even after a full weekend of racing. Several times since last summer I have gone through 3 or 4 full weekends of racing on the same set of belts and pulleys, only changing the belts out of habit. They cost more, but they are very good.

A short race report has been posted on motonicausa.com from our last race here in LA. Also, a new web store has been launched, we're going to try it out and see what kind of response we get. More info on the same site.

Hi Garen. How are you? Thanks for this feedback regarding belts. Timely for I'm about to upgrade mine. My stock belts now show signs of wear. Cheers. Will head to the site now.

Place shims between the brace and the bulkhead/radio tray mount it attaches to.

Indeed, the best solution and that's what I did too. Attached herewith is my set-up, placed 2 mm shim at the front and 2.5 at the back leaving a good space between the carbon fiber mount from the engine mount. HTH. Cheers.

Thanks so much, it seems there isn't much tolerance left to the rear screw with the pulley.
