Minus the starting hill

this racing is cool with the guys and totally funny with the girls....I like this kind of racing cause its more like what you would find in the real world but amped up for the pros and stuffed in to a short course for TV.

See how this works in our AWD Technology section.

The power is passed through a series of gears, chains and shafts.

•Step 1. We utilize a special double sprocket mounted directly to the countershaft of the motor. The inside sprocket sends power to the rear wheel just like on your everyday motorcycle. The outer sprocket sends power via a standard 420 roller chain up to a gear box mounted on the frame under the tank.
•Step 2. The right angle gearbox is mounted to the modified frame and hides under the custom gas tank. The input of the gear box is from the secondary chain and the power leaves the gearbox through a shaft leading to the custom head tube. The gear box also houses the engagement switch. The engagement/disengagement is handled by a spring loaded spline which allows you to turn the system on and off with the flip of a switch.
•Step 3. Inside the customized head tube is where things really start to happen. The main drive shaft ends inside the tube at a bevel gear. The bevel gear drives two concentric counter-rotating shafts that transfer power down to small sprockets that are housed inside our special 2 piece bottom triple clamp.
•Step 4. Inside the bottom triple clamp we have two small counter rotating sprockets that are centered along the head tube axis. A small chain runs from each sprocket to small sprockets built into the fork drive shafts.
•Step 5. The specially coated drive shafts are telescopic allowing the suspension to travel freely. They incorporate recirculating linear ball spline bearings. These bearings allow for the patented translation of the power, and eliminate stiction of the suspension when loaded under power. The drive shafts are counter rotating to eliminate any adverse torque effect when the power is applied to the front wheel. They run the length of the fork to the front hub.
•Step 6. Inside the modified fork dropouts, the lower fork drive shaft transfers power 90 degrees via a bevel and pinion gear set. The power is transferred to the hub drive system where a one way sprag bearing allows for the transmission of power when it is needed and allows the front wheel spin freely when there is traction available at the rear wheel.
