"Real cars" do have belts.... timing belts, fan belts, serpentine belts, seat belts, steel belted tires obviously being sarcastic...

But look at it this way. The 22-4 which over the last 2 years arguably has been probably the best 4wd buggy in most of the major races. And it is what? That's right belted....

After owning virually every shaft driven 4wd on the market I would take a belt car over any of the all day long. I love the smoother power deliver of the belts plus I find they are less mainteance as you aren't wearing out drive cups and shafts all the time.
