My friend still thinks 3 wheeling is best. He says "less rolling resistance=faster time." Some will never learn.

I've seen wicked fast and well setup cars three wheeling. This is what happens when you put REALLY sticky tires on a street car. A lot of cars will lift the inside front wheel.

just think, if he had a larger front bar than rear, he would be flatter around that same corner. Then his what look like Vitoracers would have more traction.

I've seen wicked fast 3-wheelin cars. I've also seen wickedly fast perfectly planted cars.
