Hey Chris,

 

The SD just stands for standard, vs metric.

 

I was also planning on using the attachment chain with one on each side.

 

As far as track drive, I doubt I could ever get the right gear ratio down. I’m mostly concerned with getting the right overall diameter.

 

As far as:

I also figure I have about .8275 inches between the chain when on the sprocket. Is a roller wheel of about an inch thick sufficient?

I included a poorly drawn picture to try and show what I am talking about, but basically, I have about .8275 inches between the two chains for the middle road wheels. I was just curious if a inch wide road wheel was sufficiently thick.

 

Once again, thanks for all the help.

i really wish i knew where the tablet i wrote down the size of some of these wheels because i have all of that info.

 

I know the road wheels are 800mm, and in 1:6th scale that is 5.249"/13.33cm, so that parts right.

 

since your using a chain drive for the tracks, i wouldn't go any lower than 1/2" for the drive shaft - since your not using a friction track, there isn't as much tension involved.

 

60SD - what's the SD?

 

my 1:7th scale tiger will be using a 40 attachment chain - it has tabs on both sides of the chain.

 

as to track drive gears, i don't know how any made their's near the correct scale size.

 

I also figure I have about .8275 inches between the chain when on the sprocket. Is a roller wheel of about an inch thick sufficient?

i don't quite understand what your saying here (simple things have a way of being over my head sometimes)
