Nah, my car is way too slow to be a race car lol Thanks Scott! The new steering wheel is a bit smaller than the OEM, it takes a little getting used to, also you can feel all the bumps in the road a lot more sensitive somehow. I ran over a couple reflectors in the road this afternoon while changing lanes and was like what the hell was that! Felt like I hit something. I resolved the belt getting eaten issue. Ended up deleting 3 more idler pulleys, basically ended up with a 48" belt routed like this: I went for about a 5 mile test drive and the belt stayed on. Checked everything real close and didn't see any obvious signs of unusual wear or other issue so hopefully it stays fixed. I suspect the issue was related to the AC delete bracket and pulley I was running before, in any case it's gone now along with 2 other pulleys and all seems good. Now to address the damn tranny..
