Will chain drive work as a propshaft replacement?

This one is for the motorcycle lovers out there: in today's episode we're infusing a car with a bit of motorcycle DNA.

  • you should have welded a cage over it incase it snaps on you and that chains may come at you like a whip, very fun but also very dangerous

  • ...why not just add a tensioner? Pretty sure you could mod a serpentine belt tensioner easily and mount it to those convenient brackets.

  • 4:00 - You can add a tensioner like it is used for timing belt to get the chain in proper tension without moving the differentials._

  • One day one of these experiments is going to go horribly wrong. Like in this one, it looks like you were sitting with the chain exposed. If that would have snapped at the wrong moment you could get bits of it flying into the cabin...

  • I know that really old logging semi trucks of the 30-50s had chain drive. From what I've heard they could barely go above a walking pace but could pull the moon out of its orbit. I also heard that they were dangerous to be around. Any loose clothing could get caught.

  • how does the diff offer reduction if you're coupling it to another diff running the other way? they would cancel each other out (given the same ratio).

  • That's why old school trucks were chain drive, with a massive sprocket in the rear. You get ridiculous gear reduction that way. More than you could ever get with a traditional ring and pinion diff. Those trucks could move huge amounts of weight with no effort.

  • Classic Saabs had this design in the 1970-90s. A chain primary gear between the engine and gearbox. Even the 900 Turbo is chain driven :D

  • Why not use two equal sized sprockets? Then you would have the same gear ratio as stock.

  • There is no gear reduction from the diff you have a diff driving another diff a 1to1 chain ratio

  • Greetings, Comrades.... In 1930s Britain, Sentinel steam wagons were chain driven. Indeed, the British speed trials at Pendine Sands saw the death of John Parry-Thomas, the driver of the car "Babs" who was decapitated when a chain drive broke at high speed. At speed and under load, chain drive is lethal, and was assigned to the scrap bin many decades ago. Be careful, be afraid, very afraid...........
