Go to LWHuB.com and download the Grow and Slide file (here a fool path:
http://www.lwhub.com/downloads/growandslide.zip), load the scene and turn ON Use morphed position for bones (one of them will turn for all of them). Play the animation...
Search this forum for some Mike thread about this stuff.
tip: create scelagones along Z axis.
Also in Flay i saw some tank belt tut. i think it can be useful for bike chain...
