I am a bit confused. Will this formula still apply for finding the sprocket I need when I am using treads. Velocity= Circumference*RPM. Then solve for RPM. Or does this only apply when using wheels?

When I try and do this, I am getting a low number for the final RPM so I don't think I have the conversions, right?

Here is the infoCircumference of treads:69 inDesired speed: 10mph or 10560 inches per minuteDrive Sprocket: 11 tooth

Miscellaneous InfoDesired speed: 10 mphDrive pulley InfoPitch diameter: 2.546 in

16mph = 1,013,760 inches per hour = 16,896 inches per minute

Did you mean 10 mph (10560 in. per min)? If I used 10 mph then the rpm needed would be 1320 rpm. If you meant to put 16 mph, why did you use that number?
