Driveline / Re: actual driveline

We are talking driveshaft ( direct drive) like a sprinter is setup, right?
sorta only no torque tube.
No, you should look thru the build section at proven driveline layouts and copy what works and is dependable

ie: 700 and cart axle or 600/820 trans axle and jackshaft
any way someone could help with the search im having a hard time

so I can't twist the motor 90 degrees in C/P class. I shouldn't add the drive line because of too much weight.
So i'm left with what i have to begin with and should just update the rollers.

Awesome thank you. So can I print it?  I want to respect your copyrights. I wouldn't try to sell it or anything. I will share it with others too on this website though, if thats okay.

that might also work i was also thinking that i might be able to get bigger bushings and put sealed bearings in it i guess. Does a pound or two make a difference overall on these things? I never thought about the weight being a problem with the drive shaft.

wow you guys are awesome to be debating like this over my post. thanks guys so much. so my problem with all this is that i don't want the belt running on the bushing if i get a little mud and seize the bushing then there goes a belt. also with my five second design ( obviously needs allot of refining) it  gives me an option to change the pulleys (top and bottom) to give me different ratio's. also the clutch is simply a tension pulley.
no cent. or torque type clutch. the brake was just an idea but i will definitely follow the rules. also the rotational weight ( if any) might give me a little more stick on the outside....maybe     lol

 uslmra rules, with an opposed twin. Heres what i had in mind. I am thinking with the motor size and what not I would go with B/P

Yes thats what i was thinking of doing. and yes i have been trying to think of a clutch  and have a few ideas but that would be maybe another thread. I was just curious what the deal is. Believe me I've read the rules numerous times and it says if its not here then you can't do it but there are lots of mods happening that weren't discussed in the rules so I thought I would ask. And any ideas or thoughts would be cool too.

Is it okay to run an actual driveline from the motor to my tranny. Kinda like a divorced trans setup. I was under the assumption that i cannot rotate the motor to run it sideways. i tried searching this but i never really get to far with the searching on this site. don't want to run the belt down and around some bushings to make it level with the tranny like it is currently. Of course I I would do this safely with a driveline loop and anything else that i need. It would also be a perfect place to attach a good big braking system to.
Any thoughts....

Speedway catalog has them for ten bucks. There steel and swedged, from 3/4", 5/8" 1/2". From 9" 12" in 1" increments. 13 bucks for 13" to 20".  Aluminum ones in 7/16", 3/8", 3/16" for the same price or cheaper.

yup its the same thing as the pic. The rear end has a removable back plate and a lot of room to attach a different rear end to it. i believe that there is a flat plate to mount the motor to in the front.
