Turbo Corvair Dragster - Snowmobile clutch drive

Postby Canyon Man » Sat Feb 11, 2012 4:12 pm

This project has been sitting for awhile but I'm gaining some steam, I hope! I expect to buy belts by the case LOL so I plan on starting with low boost levels, with that said low boost (under 15) allows me to run on premium gas instead of race gas. Here's my million dollar question - Whats the record (unofficial im sure) for "pump gas"?

Are you going to go to an intermediate shaft or right to the axle? How big a sprocket do you have for the axle? Will a single chain be strong enough, what are you expecting 300 - 350 HP?

Looking good so far :)
To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Chain (poss. polychain) from jackshaft to Axle, approx. 5 to 1 ratio, 18" dia. sprocket at axle. Thats a good guess for H.P. @ 15lbs. of boost.

Hey "Chain Reaction" what drive ratio do you use and what weights in primary to limit rpm?
