    Yes it works. Make sure your engine has enough power. I did it with the old stock 30cc engine and it did not have enough power to handle it.

    Awesome thanx for the info. Do you know if the stern belt drives any good? And are they still available?

    They're great and available on ebay.
    I've been using mine for a couple of years now.
    Just make sure you get the Redcat one.

    You'll need to shim the second and third shafts a little to get the belt to run true.
    After that you'll love it.
    While you have it apart you may as well put some decent bearings in.
    Go to your local bearing shop and get some high speed rubber sealed ones.
