    Maybe it's just optical illusion on my part.
    Probably just the "fish-eye" effect of the camera lens.
    If they weren't parallel the belt wouldn't stay put very long.

    Yep, they're parallel. Starr just sent me the upgraded 36 mm cog belt and pulley to reduce chance of breakage. Now if I can just get the serpentine belt to behave. No breakage or severe burning, but I can pick up 2 Lbs boost if I overtighten it.

    I gave up on my car, Went to the track last sunday, and well, Got one shi.... i mean crappy run. I had 4 trys before i gave up. i went thru 3 belts on the first 3 runs right at the starting line, and the 4th was skating down the track all over the place on my slicks, even with feathering the throttle the whole time. As soon as i hit 14lbs, the tires just go up in smoke in any gear..... I think i need to tub the car now due to it being unsafe, and allow me to use alot wider tires. The belts are breaking right of the line as soon as it hits 24lbs of boost if i punch the throttle., I tried playing with my boost wastegate to let all the boost out till higher tps, but i just dont know.. 137mph in the quarter as i was able to grab traction right before the finish line in 5th gear.....

    :( A Scary uncontrollable car and No traction= not too much fun anymore...
