performance = rubber

durability & cheaper = urethane

Cleaning with Armour All liquids make my belts last 1 yr old at least.

After I move I'll try a new piston/conrod in the spare OS parts I have as I can't tell if its a zeppin mod or 5port block. I may be interested in trying the RB Matrix or Sirio STI though as this OS IMO seems to be not anything more than the EB mods TZ. What amazes me most is how fast learning to drive nitro sedan was with the Mugen compared to the R40 and getting use to the motors as well. Again its probably just use to driving 8th with more snap and acceleration.
iv been saying this for years now but on a big track the 24 is better.on a small or med track the 25 is far better well i think,
and the motors you said the sirio is good.

teeth are missing, the belt itself has split into two, it looks really thin and the labels are worn off

The 25T worked great at my local track that is 180' x 90', but I have yet to try the 25T on the larger track that is 208' x 105'. I only used the 25T as some said you wouldn't have to run a 2mm split between the tires unlike the 24T. When using the split with the 24 a difference in performance was very noticable.

the track i run at is 150x52 and i find the 25 is best for that size of track with a 2mm split and using diff diff bigger tracks i sometimes run at i us the 24 coz it helps pull the car better and using a spool in the front.
