Default Re: Frame Building questions

Just so long as you keep the fire lit bud, I'm curious to see what you come up with. Different people with different ideas lead to innovation and progress for everyone. In fact I have an idea for you to chew over, while your waiting...

The problem with rear suspension is chain tension. On a rigid build, not much of an issue. Spring tensioners and these motors don't get along. Golf carts, some go karts, and a number of other things, mount the engine to the rear suspension, eliminating the chain tension issue. I'm sure you can see where I'm going with this. It would be interesting to have to independent builders tackle the concept, then merge ideas for a final product... Could make worthy competition for the skyhawk...
