Does the band tend to "track" the aluminum drum; is that aluminum hard coat anodized ...?

We had that trouble with the aluminum "turbo" drum when the band was simply used for decel...

Looks like needed stuff, though ... good job.

the drum is not hard anodized , using the Red Alto 2 1/2" wide band seem to work , I was told though that if you used a kevlar band on it you'd have trouble .
