If it is the belt then the noise i am hearing is probably just the belt slipping... But the hole that i am talking about would be seen on the drivers side, you probably have to get down to eye level because it is directly underneath the muffler and cannot be seen otherwise.. the only reason this hole concerns me is because dirt gets in there and i am hoping it is not exposing the rear gear housing to dirt and water.
And no, the squealing happens all of the time.. whenever i go from a dead stop to a moderate speed i can hear it for the first couple of feel.. i thought it might be the clutch slipping but im not sure. and it only smokes and smells odd after i run it hard for a good 30 minutes or so..(running hard meaning drifting out of corners pedal to the floor, and topping it out on straight aways, wide open the whole time)
