can someone with a rear rack mount kit please give me a hand with a few questions, I want to build a rear mount, the weight of the whole setup will probably end up being around 33 pounds, mounted as close in front of the rear axle as I can get it (towards the seat). the setup will be a 3hp 4 stroke, honda gx100, a 3:1 v belt reduction with a tensioner acting as a manual clutch to tighten the belt, and a 4.4 to 1 drive downwards to the rear wheel. What can I expect handling wise, bearing in the mind the top speed will only be about 23 mph, and what are the common problems with mounting a chain and tensioner from the rear rack jackshaft down the rear wheel. Thanks
 
Here's some pics that might help. SidewinderJerry might have 1 of these to give you ideas. Be careful he bites.

I responded to Toby but some of my answers to him got put into another thread by mistake. I had put his engine specs in that answer. It's the one addressing the 3600 rpm engine.
