Currently running a stock power steering unit with stock pulleys and v-belts. After loosing the belts this weekend and hitting the wall, TWICE, I'm thinking of going to a KRC power steering pump. What do ya'll think about going to their serpentine system? Anybody have any experience with this and the good/bad points of serpentines?

Same here as 5 and 5, two years, no problems.

I did replace the belt this year, but probably didn't have to.

Going on 3rd season on my Jones Racing serpentine setup. Lost 1 belt when we accidentally misaligned it. The best part was, I lost the belt right at a caution for a 2 car wreck. With the serp setup, we had the belt changed in under 2 minutes and I was back out without going a lap down. Try that with a V belt run from the crank to the waterpump pried in place.
