So much easier to just adjust the tension on the derailleur. That will fix it.

I was pondering this issue again.  It makes sense ( :o oops, oh no not logic!  :o) that any "chain setup" as long as the RPW4 has, is usually designed with a tray, or tension idler.  I have a background in farm equipment.  That's how those applications have been designed for ~100+ years!  Farther back on Steam Powered Equipment.

That's where you will find me.

I just resolved the chain skipping issue on a brand new Radrunner single speed, thanks to MBTs post.  Removing one chain link and grinding the aluminum tensioner tab down some provided more engagement between the chain and freewheel.  My tensioner arm is now rotated counterclockwise about as close to the frame as it can get.
