A belt is just that, a belt that goes through the boom that drives the tail rotor.

A torque tube uses gears that turn a shaft that goes through the boom which drives the tail rotor.

The power transmitted to the tail rotor, is better with a torque tube, since it won't slip as a belt, also is more expensive to crash a heli with a torque tube because the torque tube, and almost always the gears will break or bend,

under power very little diff on the T-rex, during an auto the tube amounts to a little more in robbing less energy from the rotor.

DOH!
