On the opposite side of the coin, you can also end up with belts that have very little time left on them because they were on the shelf longer than other belts. What you're payin' for is two years worth of belts, so make sure you get your money's worth.
Thats why I mention it.. I have race car's come in here all the time that they've spent years building the car and made the mistake of buying the belts early on. They get to the track and they're turned away.
