Default Re: Clutch Pucks upgraded anyone?

I highly doubt there's asbestos in the puck rubber from China. It does no good in a tire and is an expense un-needed so I'm sure it would not be added. And unles they space their sidewall cords way apart like you see on the pucks I doubt they are even car tire sidewall. I think it's conveyor belting made with rubber and jute or hemp cloth that's very rough woven. If the fibers were closer to both surfaces they would last longer. I accedently bought a set of square ones from BGF. The weave is on the surface on one side of the puck. It's has 3 layers and like I said is a very rough weave like a burlap potato bag.
