chainsaw on a pitty bike : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

well hey every one i got this little pitty bike, like 10 inch rims and all well i hooked up a home lite wipper on it and that was gutless so i went and bolted up my dads still fs86 wipper snipper that gave it some kick but i got to the end of the street and the shaft i turned up on the laythe twisted off at where it went in the cluch to much power or something i had a support over the other side! but in the end i was left searching for more power. so i seen his still chainsaw and i thought hmmmmmmmmm wouldnt that look sweet. well i have worked it out if the moter was doing 11000rpm i would be scooting around at around 57km/m i think this is a propper calculation. well what sort of chainsaw would you use and how would you get a small sproket on the clutch bell where the old one is and whats the smallest go cart sproket you can get. cause i need around a 11:1 ratio i think cause of the 10 inch rims (12 inch tyre) can you get back to me with some sugestions thanks; luke
