Per the chief mechanic for the Praga factory racing team, the proper chain length is anything that results in the engine being between the two short tubes connecting the parellal longitudinal chassis bars in the engine mounting area.  So long as you are between those tubes, chain length will depend on where you want to place the engine for balance purposes (which is driver dependent).

This advice was for a Praga Dragon with an X30, but it should be sound for any chassis/engine combo.
