Re: Gas Turbine streamliner

OK It's just, looking at where the exhaust comes out in the video, I can see small a problem. When you're at the start line you may have some issues I would've thought the exhaust coming out the top would've made more sense with the added downforce and it not pointing at the spectators, crews, and s...

Re: theTRUTH

I don't know if you noticed the VW powered bike in the pits. It had a low center of gravity and a long steering angle.

Re: theTRUTH

I'm no expert either. I built my LSR sidecar mostly out of bits I had laying around. I cut down forks from a 650 Kawi. Head angle is 45deg.
