    So my SC Serp Belt has been showing cracks for a while. I would like to replace with a Gates Racing belt (the blue will look cool and it will hopefully be much more durable). Anyone have any advice on procuring a belt to replace the TRD Dayco 5PK1790. Not asking how to perform the physical swap, just where to acquire an upgraded replacement.

    The original one lasted about 10 k's and needed a quick change.

    I went to a local Autoparts and they ordered the Gator (aprox $20). Over 15 k's latter and the belt looks like new. Go to a local parts store not Autozone or any chain (franchise) store,, with the # thats written in the back of your belt.
    Usually they know theirs job better.

    One thing I read about the racing belts- They have a better grip because they are softer but they will not last as long as a regular belt. The guys that are racing ,, they changing theirs belt after each race. Where we, are looking to get as long is possible out of it
