I notice that the shock tower post always strip and they do not last. Have you had any problems similar to this?

There are 3 R12's running in my local championship and in every race at least one of them has a broken belt. Apparently there is a durability issue with these belts. I heard that they are testing some new reinforced belts, but I'm not sure if they worked. Anyone else got the same problem with the R12 belt's?

What make of belts are those? I saw that the belts on the R12 are of Gates Powergrip belts. One of the better belts out there.
