Can anyone recomend and provide pics of a heavier wheel that would roll well on FTE axels? Or are FTE wheels just the way to go?
I'm no scientist, but IMO lighter wheels (less rotating mass) would be better. I would think it would take longer for the heavier wheels to get rolling. What do the experts think?
I'm no expert, but there is something called "flywheel effect" that keeps a rotating mass rotating longer and smoother. It would probably help a Gravityerx car muscle through the turns but don't know about straight-line stuff.
also the wheels are un-sprung weight... they have little effect on gravity.... but do work as "flywheel effect", momentum.
Good points!! Thanks for your help.
Good points all. Wouldn't this "flywheel effect" be more beneficial on the super long tracks!
The things that make ya' go hmmm!
I have no input on this topic.
There is a reason Jason likes those Bling wheels (I think). What do you stuff in the wheels??
