Must have an amazing low C of G to stay on the track curves at that speed!!

I made a balsa wood model of a DeHavilland Vampire in my teens! It was powered by two Jetex rocket packs and yes it "Crashed" and "Burned" on its maiden flight Sad

Nice belt drives indeed David! Conrad has simular ones but the Motionco site has a ver handy calculator so I can figure out what could work for me. And as Bill states: it works on a Harley!

Still not sure what I choose. The belt looks very reliable but the chain system looks more "steampunk"

The rubber bands or the metal Wilesco bands I think. I aaume hese will slip over the wheels.

If I leave my gear setup as it is now, it will run as fast as that rocket powered railcar Smile

Brian, that must have hurt...

I'm a bit surprised you aren't considering Van Doorne belts. Laughing

I was a bit disappointed - it didn't explode at the end. What fun is that?
