Whats your split? Commonly, belts strip from being on power when you hit something, even cutting corners or hugging to close. I stripped a belt once on a bumpy infield and the track was clean.

I would think that overdrive could effect belt wear and as mentioned any hits the car takes as well as belt slop or lack of tension or too much tension.

What is the wide belt up-grade?
Belt up grade is takeing the rear pulley and have it milled to fit the front, run a wider belt, I think? I know its not available, it must be custom made. Other wise I would have 1. I run a 7 mm split similar issues.

JoJo at 301 raceway, He is running the wide belt at front on his MRX4R.
I'll try to give him a call to see if he can post here how he did it.

and about the stock belts and rubber belts completely agree with you.
