Default Re: belt drive, maybe?

Are the 100 dollar "Sheeves" made of steel? I might want one. That might be perfect. Slippage in the rain might be corrected with belt dressing? That would be funny looking if it smokes like a loose alternator belt!

I get a lot of slippage on my friction drive and wondered if the whizzer gets the same slippage or better over all traction than a friction?

Anybody know?
