Do both belts flip or only the front belt?
Perhaps it small stones catching in the drivetrain causing belt to flip under load??
Flipped both front and rear..Once they start flipping things just get messy, not good for the pulley's having a flipped belt spinning over it....
After replacing all belts and pulley's, was fine for about 2 months, now having issues again.
After it flips the first time(on new belt) then it just keeps happening: obviously stuffed
I had a few belt drive cars & never had this problem before (even on a T1 & 008)
The 008's belts are quite loose, but no no issues with that car.
