wat's up guys...time to change my supercharger belt. i was wondering if there are any good alternatives to the belt from jackson racing. $21.95 for a belt from jackson racing seems a bit steep for a belt. so i was wondering if there are any other good alternatives. i remember reading about kelley springfield...but any other brand besides that? does it really matter what brand i use for my sc belt? are the differences in quality really that big?

well I wouldn't say a brand doesn't matter make sure it's the right size and has a good warranty...they seem to be made better since they'll have to be replaced if they go out...just my opinion

Later,

"they" who? JR's warranty doesn't cover "normal" wear items...

nobody expects these belts to last 2yr/100k miles.

i use gator-back belts, if i can find them in the right size. otherwise, i just use whatever's cheap and keep an eye on it.

use some belt dressing too--you can run them a little looser without the risk of slippage.

gator-back is a brand, yes. i think goodyear makes them. they're really strong, and very grippy. neat belts, but they're hard to find in these oddball sizes. a little expensive too.

belt dressing comes in a spray can (i have stuff made by STP, but other people make it), and it's just this stuff you spray onto a moving belt, and it makes it stickier.

the guys at autozone will know about both things--belt dressing is a pretty old domestic trick, to not have to run as much belt tension.
