Hey guys,

I have been getting into the little Coleman 200 series bikes and I now have 2 of them which me and my dad abuse heavily at the various OHV trails in rural Alabama.

As far as karts I don't have any kart project currently but I did FormulaSAE 2011-2014 so I guess that counts? I also have numerous project cars and a Case 222 which I have restored.

I was very active on the various vBulletin car forums in the early and mid 2000's but when those declined I found myself backing out of them. Facebook is a garbage mode of communicating about anything technical and a garbage platform overall so I'm glad to see this forum is still going strong.

Anyways, I am a sales engineer for an extremely large chain manufacturer so if you all have any questions on chain selection, sprockets, etc. then please use me as a resource. I sell millions of dollars every year of this stuff and spend 50-60 hours a week in and out of mills doing inspections, upgrades, and retrofits.

I'll try and write up a chain-for-dummies FAQ here for the community to use. I also have some nice selection tables I can share.

Who did you race Formula SAE for?
Yesterday when I was volunteering at the local 4th of July parade, I got talkin' to the local college Formula SAE team, they drove in the parade.
I hope to race Formula SAE for that college someday.

Hey bud thanks for the welcome.

I raced with SPSU Motorsports (now KSU Motorsports) out of Marietta, GA. It was definitely a great learning experience but the only advice i can give is that if you're looking to race, go volunteer at NASA and get free track weekends. It's a lot better and faster way to become a great racer.

FSAE is more or less a vehicle to teach project management. In 3 years, working 10+ hours each week on the car, I only got to drive 3 times which is higher than most people. Definitely a fun experience to be a part of but don't bank on driving them, just putting in hours and hours of welding and fabrication. I'm glad I did it but much like the military, your mileage may vary.
