hi! if i position the pinion gear [ angle-sidewider] below the axle centreline will it tend to pull the front end down on accel
eration, or just unway the back wheels causin sliding or hopping. anyone tried it. john.

hi, chassis is scratcth built wire/brass, so motor can go where i put it.the reason i ask is because of the lever effect, if i wanted to build a wheelstander the pinion would be high relying on the axle trying to pivot aound the drive pinion and lift the front wheels, i just wondered if the reverse happens to a lower centreline pinion on a circuit car, 67 pontiac 1/32 hardbody. lets have your theories and results if youve played about with this setup............john

hi, ijust built the wire brass chassis for 1inch natural rubber tyres. its got a hawk neo 6 sidewinde 5.6 to1 gearing and the motors way below axle line 1mm ground clearance, im just tuning the chassis at the moment its got a 10 gram tyre weight in the front and its showing promise. its a aa/f fuel altered fiat ,its actually a drag racer but it really looks good on my normal road race circuit. john.

heads gone just put up double post, due to smallest grandson, not my age honest. the reason i put post in this section because its an all wire chassis miny version of a wing car, single wire centre and wire perimeter frame, with droparm, which will go for the road race version. its so light i can put weight any where and play with torsion rod thickness. john
