#35 chain/sprockets is more than sufficient and has been battle tested 
by many vehicles.  A number of guys are moving to the #25 
chain/sprockets to save weight/space with good results as well.  Since 
we have slippage built into all track designs (either friction drive or 
a belt/pulley stage) the #25 is also strong enough.
