so are they way better?

also whats the word on the shock ball cups?
From looking at your signature, I see that you have the Mongoose listed, so when you say the stock belts, I assume you mean the stock Mongoose belts and not the stock G4s belts.

Having switched from the Mongoose to the G4s, I can say with all certainty that YES the kFactory belts that the G4s uses are much better than the stock mongoose belts. They are thinner height wise, but are wider. Just switching to those belts (they came with my upgrade) dramatically improved the freedom of my car's drive train.

So if you have to buy new belts anyway, I would say you might as well buy the kFactory belts.
