WAYS TO GAIN AN UNFAIR ADVANTAGE WITH WHEELS
Below is a list of things that have been done with the wheels to gain an unfair advantage.
(1) SLOW WHEELS ON THE BACK AXLE WHILE RULNNING BALANCED WEIGHT, BEATS TAIL HEAVY CAR WITH GOOD WHEELS ON THE BACK AXLE.
A car running balanced weight, and with bad wheels on the back axle, beats tail heavy car at Tail Heavy Tracks. To do this, run your race car balanced weight and place slow wheels on the rear axle of your car.
This is not illegal. Knowing the benefits of tail weight at some cities, my experts I contacted still do not believe a balanced car with bad back wheels would automatically have an advantage over the tail heavy car, as both cars would race on the slow rear wheels.
One person told me it only works when used with the ability to move weight. To accomplish this, the driver, in the even weight car, is positioned aft as far as possible at the start of the race (which means now he or she is now running tail weight.) The driver moves forward in the car as the car reaches the flatter part of the Tail Heavy Track (Now they are running even weight.) Running even weight with bad wheels on the back is not illegal. However, the driver moving in the car to move weight is illegal. The problem is there is no way to prove someone is moving in the car. There has been some who have tried to stop it, but it is difficult to catch and prove. The last thing you want to do is accuse someone that is not moving. This cannot be policed.
Moving while trying to drive straight is difficult. When the driver moves his steering suffers in most cases.
