Nope!!!re-engineering anything is always costly, it works, quite...fine.....But it's the "trepidation" that goes with using this chain, it'll pop real quick and easy if your clutch is not right. Right off the sprocket in in my case...but I piddled around and have had no issues, other than the tight feeling in my gut, waiting for the big pop, it was almost the same price for 10 feet up here in Northern Alberta, thing was, I could have 10 ft tomorrow or wait two to three weeks from the other end of the country..The weather for this time of year is awesome, I had to go cheap. Who ever said it's better, blah , blah ,blah, is wrong. It's a quick fix, stick your chain with your sprocket, bit of oil now and then, your laughing.
