Re: Chain Drive

Is this for mud drags? Will your class allow this mod? Chain drives are very pricey. Power Pro can set you up. Other wise if you can fab, make your own. Even then it adds up quickly. I run a double 60, but know alot of guys having good luck with a single 80.

Re: Chain Drive

I run in the unlimited and funny car class mudbog
I was considering building my own setup for cost reasons. I guess what I need to know would be an approximate shaft and bearing size I am running a smallblock mopar on nitrous and the whole rig weighs about 1500# running 33'' cut tractor tires

Re: Chain Drive

The ones like Power Pro sell come either 1 inch for the standard or 1.25 for the heavy duty. I believe mine is the one inch version.
1500 pounds! that is light. I run a Power Pro chassis and mine goes 2500.
Mine is all welded together, gears welded to the shaft and the yokes to the shaft. But they are also made with splined gears and yokes for easy gear changes.

Re: Chain Drive

Thank's for the info. I build my own frames well sort of I generally use stock car and sprint car frames and modify them to work for me as I am a tight ass and so far I haven't had any problems. I'm too light to run NMRO as an un blown smallblock has to weigh 2000# but most of the drags around here don't have an weight regulations which makes it kinda nice.
