How does the ChainDragGONE work?

The ChainDragGONE guides the chain; it decreases the chordal harmonics by approximately 80% (depending on applications) and dampens vibration during rotation. The ChainDragGONE supports the accumulated slack (lower portion) of the chain as it moves to the rear sprocket. This enables the chain to cycle from the clutch driver to the rear axle sprocket on a smooth, purpose-oriented path; eliminating the ability of the chain to deviate either by balling up; bouncing side to side or jumping up and down. When this specific task is accomplished, the chain's kinetic energy is used as momentum, much like a flywheel, to keep the chain loaded and giving the kart racer an instant throttle response because the slack that is normally present with conventional set up is eliminated.

Have any independent tests been performed on the ChainDragGONE?

Yes, Oval Kart Magazine ran dyno testing at The Kart Shop in Midlothian, VA. Jason Higginbothan administered the set up and Lee Johnson administered the independent test. Click HERE for page 1 of the article, click HERE for page 2.  Mr. Johnson later said that what racers don't realize is that the momentum gained increases the acceleration rate.

What is a Metlin Filter Cover?

The Metlin Filter Cover (Pulse Air Filter) is designed for 2 cycle engines. When you use the Metlin Filter Cover dust, dirt and moisture are kept out of the fuel pump diaphragm area on the Walbro WB-3 carburetors.

Is additional chain length needed over a standard installation when I use the ChainDragGONE?

Chain length will sometimes be dead on, other times additional 2 to 3 links can be added so the engine location stays in place due to chassis set up numbers. The chain length can also be adjusted to reflect you chain slack preference.

On inertia dyno runs, does the run show improved acceleration or a decrease?

On dynos the time that it takes to go from clutch lock (3500 to 3800 rpm) to desired rpm is much quicker. Managing the chain's mass and using the force that it generates, (the chain is already in motion getting to clutch lock) it is like an additional weight (Fly wheel effect) and it allows the engine to reach high rpm's at a more rapid rate! Also when on the dyno, the difference net horsepower and torque graphs are much more precise as the vibration (chain harmonics) is dramatically reduced or eliminated. This same set of circumstances is addressed when on a kart, racing or testing. As you know every dyno is different and the engine builder who is doing the work knows all of the base lines he needs. I have seen how precise the numbers are when a dyno that has a belt maps out.  It is impressive with the ChainDragGONE on because the pulls are much smoother and more accurate.

How long will the wheel last?

The New Exorcist wheels come with Ceramic bearings and the wheel will last for seasons.

How does the ChainDragGONE enhance the driver's ride?

Because the vibration is reduced or eliminated, driverís "feel" in the race kart becomes much more sensitive to what the kart is doing and how it is loading or flexing. Chassis adjustment is much easier to make because the driver's input is more specific.
