I run at a high speed track with some hard braking areas...
Getting frustrated with the unreliability of the car.
Any ideas what could be wrong?
1)Are your pulleys clean of tire dust?
2)Did you replace pulleys after stripping?
3)What split are you running?
4)Where do you have your tension set?(the loose settings will cause failure sooner, The car is very free in the standard position)
I ask these question only because I have ran the original belts for 9 hard races before the front belt stripped just to see how far the belts will last.
Maybe due to me tearing the car down and cleaning the pulleys after each race, So it equaled about 8 hours or more before failure.
