    one thing you might want to look into is a "transfer case" off a mitsubishi eclipse/eagle talon/plymouth laser/galant vr4. I had a galant vr4 transfer case in my talon that had a disconnect so it could be put in two wheel drive as opposed to four. I think it would work pretty well for something like this if set up right. It basically takes the drive and makes a 90 degree turn to the back of the car. Pretty strong too, some dsms can make big power(600-700-1000) and I haven't heard of too many transfer case problems. Never had a problem with mine and I estimated that car at 300.

    Interesting, but I can't make it work in my head? Looks like they mounted the case at the front and the main tube shot to the back diff..I can't think of a way to make that work for me.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. I'm needing to get the chain drive off the bike over to the right so a traditional transfer case divorce mounted would work and point the outputs the right directions.

    I don't have any experience with side cars or anything but am interested.

    Your problem with getting the drive over to the side car on the R/H side I think could be made simpler by using a single L/H sided swing arm (a large problem in itself) then mount a drive shaft flange to the to the wheel. Depending on if the diameter of the hack wheel and M/C wheel. If they are the same diameter and how far forward the hack wheel is in relation to the M/C wheel you could possibly just run cv joints on either end with a shaft coupler in the middle.

    Just a thought.

    Ooops, sorry guys. I let this thread slip. I went a different direction with the Bandit: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=432320


    I'm on the lookout for something to push the sidecar again at some point, no hurry. I still want 2 wheel drive and just may end up selling this Ural tub and get myself a Gear-Up. If Roger can ride his to Death Valley and Mr. Cob can ride the USA, maybe I can deal with the lower speeds of the Ural.
