Track meshing

I am trying to optimize a sprocket drive but need help simulating the rubber belts holding the drive section together.

Any ideas?

 

Have access to Several autodesk products. I was able to get a short simulation in Inventor but i need a more accurate one.

 

I have attached a pdf file showing the basic idea.

i know have a full loop assembly with a drive sprocket and two wheels. The fist run it ran but the belts start to bunch up. So i put a spring between the two wheels and it shows some movement put seems to bind up and stop moving. If any one thanks they can help i can send them the files.
