With the Shaft vs Belt debate, both sides have there plus point and there minus points however when it comes down to results on the track people will buy what is doing well, however it won't really make much difference to the average club or even mid table national driver which way they go due to the fact one crash or a couple of ill timed corners will wipe out any advantage.

However I do prefer belt drive the simplicity of the drive train, coupled with the increased smoothness also no torque steer!? There can only be belts at top level competition. Other advantages as demonstrated by Losi is that you can easliy have an over drive or under drive by having a smaller pully in the front and rear diff. Theses sorts of thing just don't exist with a shaft drive car.
