What are the pros and cons of each? It seems to me that belt drive is simpler?

Thanks in advance

The belt drive is simpler, and more sturdy in a crash. But it does have quite a bit more drag than torque tube and robs a bit of power both when running, and when autoing if you have a driven (slipper) tail.

The only way to have a driven tail with the belt drive is to run a slipper clutch. The belt drive has a lower gear ratio. The belt is quieter and survives a crash better. The belt driven machines tend to be less expensive.
