And I was having some issues getting the cog drive supercharger belt to behave. But we also got that solved.

It's been bulletproof, and I giggle like a little girl every time I fire it up.

Here's a little video of a drive around town for you.


WOW...........what a beast


And love your EXOTIC collection of cars.................

Lol.. I'm not sure if 2 qualifies as a "collection" but thanks. Great cars, I'm absolutely in love with the F430. One of the most pure, responsive perfect cars I've ever driven.

Man, that is some beautiful scenery where you live!!! Nice car too!!! What belt issues were you having and what did you do to rectify them? I have a cog setup and haven't had any issues (yet) but if I encounter any, I would like to have some heads up on fixes.

Very nice! I was just waiting for you to let that baby eat! Sounds great. Another righteous Camaro.

Congrats on the good build again!

Thanks.. yeah it is a beautiful area.

The belt was riding up on the tensioner pulley and eventually shredding.

Turned out, it was my driving style. I'm used to downshifting into corners (driving a Ferrari on the track) and this was overspinning the blower and seemed to be causing some belt flap (which allowed it to ride up)

Changed how I drive.. and no issues.

Is it better if you let it warm up a bit before you drive off. How does your 430 compare to your Lambo. Great toys.
