    8JP belts.

    1st 8JP belt blew at 18 miles with stock clutching while testing

    2nd 8JP belt on the machine now with 624 miles.

    But I am not stock either (Stage 4 flash and clutching)

    break your belts in well before lighting the wick to it...and heat trapped in...and or various aftermarket clutching can have a negative effect on your belt life...just saying

    I think viper Joe has a stage 3 evo flash

    Have u done anything to the secondary spring?

    With that much torque I would think u would want some more resistance in the secondary so it doesn't slip.

    Worked for me with my stage 2 turbo viper

    Hey Nos-Pro, again, have you had a chance to try Hurricanes primary ramps that supposedly add 20 HP @ the track ?

    ^^^^^^^^You too!!!
    I think its time for a big switch. I had that much belt dust in under 50 miles! Without a helix Its going to keep happening.
    I have to have a setup for my week trip to the cabin in the UP!
    And it looks like its lighter weights and softer springs! I got to see if I can make it happen before I leave Sunday
