Why is Align going back to belt drive on the 450 470 and 500 Dominators?

They still offer a TT version and it is less expensive. What's the deal here?

I think they cost less, are simpler, weigh less and work better.
I have used each of them (gears belts)for years and would rather have a belt.

I'm glad they went back to belt on the smaller machines. It's not like their old belt systems, these go round a large pully at the front (Like Raptors, Logos and Goblins etc.) and have a tensioner. Efficiency and tail control differences are negligible and you gain much more durability, less crash cost and easier repairs.

60% of the time, it works every time!
