Chains offer more efficient power transfer and don't stress your bearings as much as a tight belt, so I may use chains on my next race bike. I have one bike with belt primary and chain final.

I also have one with chain primary and final.

After the last race at Grange, I'm seriously considering a friction drive racer.

Thats a pretty intense looking build right there! Looks Awesome, if you do change up your motors keep us posted on how they are running and what you like in the differences.
