I'm trying to get my Losi Street Weapon back up and running, but Losi are no longer supporting the model so cannot find an original drive belt. I know that it is a 3mm width belt with 112 teeth and 3MR pitch, which makes them 336mm long. Does anyone know a company out there that either sells a range of belts or makes them to order? I don't want to start hacking the chassis up to put belt tensioners in sowould like something similar to original spec.

Cheers

Ben

If you truly struggle to find losi parts, drop welshy40 a pm on here, I think he has been in touch with someone that makes belts, cant be sure though

Gates belts are available in lots of sizes, and can be custom made but they aint cheap, have a look at this site for a bit more info and contacts

Cheers for the replies, I'm going to send Gates and email to ask about belts and will hopefully have a chat with Welshy tonight at racing, if he's coming.

A few years back I had a belt made to order from Bearing Man Ltd in Telford, wasn't that expensive. They are part of a fairly big group of distributors. http://www.bml-hayley.co.uk/find_us.htm Use the link and find your nearest one and pop in to try and ensure you get exactly what you want.

Rocking Donkey,

Did you get a response about the belts from Gates? I would be interested in getting some rear SW as well.

Thanks
Chris
