Re: Rule change proposal- weight sheet as part of scrutineers

Thanks for the explanation Gaz i dont think its a bad thing , but want to be sure there is a science to it Some of the comments in Gregs link seemed just scary to me, my experiance in ballast and speedway sedans would suggest anything added much behind the axle as a pendulum , but thats only one for...

Is this fact finding to help people understand the cog/cop relationship ? or is there a cutoff point for unbalanced vehicles in mind ?

Re: Crosswinds

Pretty sure the tight fit with padding is necessary so you dont get too much momentum, maybe more specific safety gear for the emergency vehicle ?

Re: Aero Article

Good article and great vid of the Nish save , , saw it from the start line as a dust cloud but looks much different from the side view one area Eva does not get to is height of COG , it got us this yr with new bodywork putting the COP much higher than COG and causing a high speed wiggle http://www.m...

Re: Honda MG & MF 750
