No matter how tight I make the chain every time I even go to pedal the bike the chain ends up coming loose. The rear wheel isn't moving forward and I also have shimmed the top hat washer with some soda can pieces. The chain still only has a couple hours of riding on it so it's new but like it goes from being perfect to like an inch of play. It is a Shadow half link.

it probably has something to do with your rear tire. maybe the bolts coming loose and its slipping forward

It might be stretching, but im not sure that would happen every time you tightened the chail/wheel. someone i know also has a shadow half link chain and he has the same problems and says the chain sucks. i dont have one so i dont know but from what iv been hearing that chain is no good. get a wal-mart chain, its solid and never loosens
