Guys, need help here regarding sprocket set up...i intend to change to 15/42 sprocket...but if i do conversion 520 chain....it will damage faster then 530?? Here, in Spore i asked the mechanic & they advised me it better to used 530 as it will not damaged the chain due the Rc51 is very torque...is it true?...

The torque is high.
520 is good only for racetrack.
I have chosen 525 "AFAM" chain with 15/41.

Das Drehmoment ist hoch.
520 ist nur für Rennstrecke gut.
Ich habe 525 "AFAM"-Kette mit 15/41 gewählt.

The 520 chain is a bit lighter than a 530 (my 530 chain weighed 4 Lbs), so it may accelerate a little quicker (less mass).
Otherwise there should be no difference.
