What is kind of amazing to me is that both threads were individuals 'outside' of the ecomodder posters.
A real testament to the creativity, ingenuity and focus of each of those two men!!!!

Now it works!

If the moderators can find it in the server, please do. It was a lot of info, all about hp numbers required to spin a wheel and tire assembly with and without full covers.

Conclusion: no measurable difference with these wheels between covered and not. Sad, because I really wanted covers.
Power consumption was the same either way.

Not sure if this was mentioned in this thread, but his car had an adjustable suspension! It was really neat seeing the front end lift off the ground to clear a curb! It was the safest and most "production ready" car on the track! I would've suggest low rolling resistance tires to replace the wide ones you had, but a part of me wanted to see it go full throttle around the track!

It was great to meet you and thanks for letting me sit in the car! Here are a few photos of me and the car:

Airflow drag past the wheel while driving is where covers make the difference

It wasn't copied to the forum's server until that operation could complete.

Most likely the forum software logged you out in the background while you were preparing your post. Always Select All and Copy before you click Go Advanced or Post Quick Reply. Always.

The one time you forget it will bite you.



What's this? If you paste the link as a picture instead of a hyperlink, it will inline.

Nice car BTW.
