I'm skeptical. The roll resistance has a 0-length lever arm.

I was having trouble envisioning how to keep the movement centered on the same vertical line, but I think I have it now:
Why? You could have a one foot lever-arm between the horizontal and vertical hinge, with a 16" transition piece. And two hinges widely spaced hinges, both horizontally and verticall, enableing lighter construction.

That would mean a transition piece between the car body roper and the tail, but the gaposis would be on the top at the front and on the sides at the back
Oh Panzer of the Lake what is your wisdom? -- Don't take criticism from people you wouldn't take advice from.
