Of anything is broken in belt drive you're aware of this why would you even attempt to drive being a high end car/engine? Commonsense, takes a belt to make all components work right!!!?


It never ceases to amaze me at some of the questions that are asked in this forum. We assume that these are otherwise normal people just asking really dumb questions.
