4.0's don't have the problem 3.0's have. Many 3.0's wear the belts out prematurely because the path is crap and doesn't give enough contact with some of the pulleys.
The gatorback has more grip with the limited contact on those areas. My 3.0 started squealing belts everytime it rained until I got the gatorback.
