has anyone ever tried a chain drive system with the mt-5 trans

i am doing this for a number of reasons

primarily due to the placement of the engine/trans in relation to the location of the rear wheels

secondly is ground clearance

thirdly is the reason for a 4 wd trans

so i could tub out the buggy and hit some deep water with a prop out the back

the finished product is gonna be interesting to say the least 

an thoughts about the system

has anyone tried it yet

thanks for the thought yall

sounds cool, with proper engineering it should work fine, keep the outer bearings close to the sprockets and have good suport between bearing, dont want any flex or chains will pop off, I know from my own experience

Here's my attempt at something similar it may float depending on the tires. I keep meaning to look into rating tires for floatation I've seen big quads float with the tires in running
