hey whaddya know it worked.
I’d loved to claim that I end off the road, in the ditch, when pedalling hard (on rear left) but the truth is that neither I or the motor changes the course i any notable way. I foot-brake on rear left and have a disc brake on rear right, and when braking HARD with either side one might experience a slight wish turning to corresponding side if no hands on the steering wheel.
Which is no problem since I’m already in the ditch if I dont keep my hands on the helm….
…but thats more about bump steering, rake and all that angles jazz…..
(Using MIG with gas. Works ok for me but dreaming of Brads skills with the stick welder!)
Thanks HPLooking forward to follow your build!
DanHello HP, Atomic Brad et al:
I am learning how to build and true wheels, but then I realized, no front front brakes on my project. I was thinking to probably put on two disc brakes on the rear axle as shown in the Street Fighter build, but then I thought, will this actually be enough braking power on a hill, fully loaded? As HP lives in a flat area (perhaps Brad as well), pehaps they have not noticed a problem with braking? I am wondering now how to bring more braking power to bear without giving up the idea of a four wheeled vehicle.
Hi Hape03Looking forward to follow your build!
sorry I meant rotors, not calipers...Hi Hape03
Still obsessing about brakes. What is the Fantom creation like coming down hills loaded? Have you ever felt the brakes on the rear axle were not sufficient?
Quixotic suggested larger calipers which may give extra power...
