Yup. I actually tried the Gates Micro-V. Squealing bitches are going to be replaced REAL soon. I never had an issue with Gatorbacks. NASCAR doesn't, either.

Gatorback on the White 90 SSE and on my 03 Malibu, and love them. Soon the Grey 90 SSE will be getting one also. I don't think that are that much more than a regular belt, but well worth it.

I've never used Gatorback.

But I've been happy with Gates Micro-V both for the */C and serpentine.

I run a gatorback as well...but there'* no need to get them unless you've got an issue or your belts are due for a change anyway.
