I dont know that the belts will break so easilly, but I know that with time, they do stretch out a bit. The longer center belt would propably have the most noticiable wear on it, might be good to have a backup, or just a belt tensioner.

In my 3 years with the GT4, definetely the belt that wears out and or breaks much faster than all is the front (ZE192), i'd say 2 to 1 of the others. That is because you normally use a heavier front diff.
Yes, the side belt (351) gets slack very soon, but that's why you need the side belt tensioner to tune accordingly as slack increases with time.
Never broke a rear or side belt, just changed them with normal wear.

I have 2 GT4's and both are still on original belts (even with a lot of testing on stony carparks). The first one which I still run was one of the first kits released.

The car is pretty solid and takes a real hammering. So far in 4 yrs I have only stripped a couple of gears and broke the front body post support. The gears were my own fault. I was adamant about getting the 15/19 pinions to mesh with the standard gears without altering the chassis holes. Just doesnt work.

I just sent you an email Randman.

The W2 includes everything you listed there. Basically it's completely hopped up, the only thing I bought was titanium screws to shave a little weight, and add a little strength.

Guys, I have a question about the rear suspension on W2L. The rear upper is 8.8mm and rear lower one is 9.2mm and one is 8.4mm from the GT4-W manual. I know that setting is for rubber tires, and the rear dog bones come with the W2L is somehow shorter. I mean if I use the stock setting for the rear arms, the dog bones are not long enough to stay into the outdrive. I can solve this problem by shortern the gap between the rear hub carrier and the arms, but I want to use 22 or 24mm rubber tires, and stay with 200mm width.
Can anyone tell me should I shortern the space between the hub and arms, or buy a longer dog bones, or other things?
Thanks.

It sounds like by your description, that you need longer dogbones. I'm not sure if the length has changed, but the origional GT4 cars were based off of rubber tires, so it couldn't hurt to get a pair of the origional dogbones and see if they are a hair longer.

I am having a problem on the rear arms with the dog bones. The dog bones are not long enough when I followed the stock setting to adjust the gap between the rear carrier and the arms, 8.8mm, 8.4mm, and 9.2mm.. Another setting is shortern the gap, but that setting is for 30mm tires. I want to use 22 or 24mm tires. Do you know which rear dog bones or rear axle I should order?
Yokomo
ZE-010FS Universal Part (Bone)
ZE-010AR GT-4 Rear Axle
ZE-010FSB Universal Part (Bone)
ZE-010BW GT-4 200mm Wide Dog Bones

I found these at speedtech.
Which one should fit?

I'd think that ZE-010BW is what you'd be looking for...

On my W2, the front universals work fine, plenty long, and that is using the 200mm pivot balls.
