DAYCO’S NEW SUPERCHARGER BELT USED TO CATAPULT
NMCA CHAMP ACROSS THE FINISH LINE
Dayco, a leading engine products and drive systems specialist for the automotive, industrial and aftermarket sectors, is growing its line of high performance racing products for today’s engine builders and race teams. And wants fans and amateur and pro engine builders to know that they can now purchase the same belt that was used all season by Chuck Watson on his factory super car, which helped them cross the finish line this year as the NMCA champion.
For the last 18 months, the Dayco tech team has been working closely with teams like Watson Racing and Chris Duncan Racing, to test their new supercharger belt and other racing technology like tensioners, belts and balancers.
“We worked closely with the Dayco tech guys this year, testing their new supercharger belt and the results have been incredible,” said Chuck Watson, driver of the 2019 Cobra Jet Mustang that features Dayco supercharger belts and tensioners. “The belt’s design is definitely better than what we used previously and we noticed a huge difference under boost conditions, because the belt was able to keep its grip and help us cross the finish line.”
In addition to the supercharger belt, Dayco brought an 8mm blower belt to the racing circuit this past year. specifically engineered using real-world on-track data that enables it to withstand the rigors of 4,000 horsepower top alcohol dragsters and pro-modified race cars. It comes in multiple lengths and 50mm, 75mm and 84mm widths.
Dayco also has a full line of both street and diesel performance harmonic balancers as well as underdrive racing performance balancers and supercharger balancers. Each balancer has laser etched timing marks and the racing series is specifically engineered to exceed SFI 18.1 ratings. More information on PowerBond by Dayco harmonic balancers can be found here.
