Re: Importing Race Cars to Australia

Re: theTRUTH

Yes, high pivot point will mitigate "tip over", espically if its above the c of g,, In the perfect world you will actuate the skids at jogging pace, yes,, but you may be turning off track and inadvertinaly activate them, maybe in a little loose salt and have a scarey wobble going on where skids down...
