    I'm just wondering how long does the rubber band last before it stretches or break's?

      I'm sure it will wear after a while. A set of ten replacement belts is 6 bucks so that should keep you stocked for a while.

        Thanks, knowing that I might have to try this system out.
        Just for the fun of it.

          Just wondering how much tension is actually being put on the armature shaft and the cluster gear shaft. It's only plastic that the metal is rotating within. I'm assuming that the fit of the belt is just enough to keep it seated in the pulleys without slippage. Time will tell, but I think it's a pretty cool thing to try! -- Ernie

            The rotors on the pancakes are pretty tough. I doubt anything would happen to the rotor...
            BUT... the gear plate, and * * * Maybe * * * The pinion hole in the tub may end up being oval instead of round; over time.
            I guess heat would be a factor in it...
            Maybe a little bushing could be fixed in the gear plate.. then again, you would be messing with the integrity of gear plate.
            I say; use a not so great chassis, and a not so great gear plate, and see how long it lasts before an oval is melted into them.
            Hey; the whole little kit is cheap...
            Sounds cool to me.

              I have an IROC set I built based on DASH chassis. They are setup the same as the video posted above. I decided to convert them to the belt drive to see how they work. Getting the rear pully mounted was a little tricky since I don't have an anvil that matches the diameter of the pully, but I did get it on straight. I did one car and compared the lap times with the gears to the lap times with the belt drive. I didn't make any other changes and ran the chassis without the body. The lap times with the belt driver were about 2.5 tenths quicker. Two things I notices was that nice dentist drill whirl with the belt drive and the car seems to have more snap coming out of the corners. I'll do the other cars in the set and put them into the rotation and see how the belts and top plate hold up over time.
