Ok, cool. I just started running the rubber ones and am pretty happy with them. It freed the car up quite a bit.

I too like the rubber belts. The price to keep the car free'd up is definitely worth racing them. Even if you only get a months use out of them, at least it's less strain on the motor and seems to be real good to the pulleys.

I liked the kevlars on the Kyosho. They just needed a bit of braking in to get free'd up. But if you run 1hr long mains, they could be a good safety net.

Joe, thanks for the housing scoop. Call Jim at www.rcnitronation.com and tell him Tommy sent ya. He's got the Kawa belts. He may even discount them for you Awesome guy to deal with.

Can't really lighten the plastic pulleys significantly, but you can lighten the alum. pulley adaptors.Look at how 3Racing lightened their pulley adaptors. Just don't drill out the holes a large as theirs so you don't have to worry about the stock ones twisting and warping due to stress like 3Racings.

I am trying to find an effective way to add some weight back to the car. I am at 1690 with tires cut to 63 and 61. Any suggestions?

do you have the brass battery tray? 83 grams and you can drill it out and get it down to 40 without a problem

I was thinking about that, but I am running Lipo and I already had to trim the plastic one to fit it. I don't like the way the stock one warps though. What is the price on them?

I dont know about the CF one, I think I will get the brass one since that will let me replace that weight down low where it belongs.
