Both options have pros and cons.

The biggest benefit of the TT drive is in autos. The TT drive has less drag. Not to say that a belt drive doesn't auto just fine...

The belt drive is less expensive to repair. And the gears are harder to strip.

Hell... I can fix that.
Uh oh..
It's ***ked!!!

My 600 came with the TT. I replaced the TT after an "incident" with the belt and flew it that way for 2.5 yrs. I just put the TT back in and now I can tell a big difference in power as well as autos.
Belt=cheaper learning
TT=more power and control,(tail)
