Default T-REX 600 belt or Tq. tube?

I have a T-REX 600 electric completely CNC, and CF out thanks to ushobby supply, and heli direct. I have upgraded everything possible so far bescides the belt drive and I was wondering if I should stick with the belt drive or change the tail to Tq. tube drive? I'm happy with the belt drive but I was wondering if the tq tube was any better/ recomended for this heli. I had a century heli hawk and an Xcell they were Tq tube, but I'm not sure what's best or better for the T-REX 600 please let me know!!

Better is a matter of what you're after.

If you're after that last 1 or 2 percent of performance and a few extra revolutions at the end of an auto then TT is the way.

If you're not into changing tail drive gears every time you have a minor mishap and don't mind checking belt tension occasionally, then stick with the belt drive.

Mine's belt driven, no stripped gears and no complaints.

When is it Align going to come out with much stronger tail drive gears like the delrin material.. Those material for tail drive gears are really poor quality..

if the gears were stronger more stuff would get tore up in minor mishaps
