Default Belt Rubbing

I just flew two flights and had my belt really tight, in the middle of my second flight
for a brief instant i heard my belt rub.
after landing it i felt the belt tension and it seemed to have loosened up, and sure enough i had a long white stripe on the side of my belt where it made contact.
after coming home the belt seems to have tightened back up.
I was wondering if you guys experience this with your 6hv's or not.

Temperature change will affect the belt tension, somewhat.

Set it up in a nice warm house, and it will usually be a bit loose, out in the cold.

I run mine as loose as possible without it skipping, if that helps any.

yeah it was nice and warm out in the sun today, so i was thinkin that the belt might have stretched due to the heat.
