Hey adu,

Dont mean to be rude, but whats the point of having 6 wheels instead of 4? Only looks?

Have to say well done,
BTW the wheels on the RR and the Vette the same, dun they!
Very well done I should say (the vette looks horrifying, but well done..)

Good to have you here, maaitt !

welcome aboard the crazy train...ahahahah. sorry. too much ozzy for one day
some skills you got there mate, though very weird concepts. why 4 wheels at the back for the vette? i mean the tyrell's 4 wheels upfront were justified.
and the rolls royce looks really small, almost supermini size.
great work nonetheless.

hmmmm.........a tractor trailer Corvette. No offence pal. Welcome to TeamBHP.
4 wheels at the front wud have been a better idea. I guess there was concept car with 6 wheels. 2 in the front [all 4 front wheel cud e steered for better handling. ]

The four wheels at the back is actually an idea supported by engineers at BMW.Williams F1. Dunno if any of you read the F1 racing issue a couple of months ago where they had asked the Williams designers to come up with what they think a F1 car would look like today if it weren't for all the regs. And they came up with a six wheeled car, with the 4 wheels at the back. They said that it was the ideal placment for em coz they provided max traction anabling the tyres to put down more power earlier.

So Adu999 has the right idea! wtg adu!!

There was also a F1 with 4 front wheels. It raced only once after which it was banned cos rules stated that a F1 car shud strictly have 4 wheels.

Hey,

This reminded me about something i had done about 8years back on "aldus photstyler"....and made me look it up on my comp...



On finding the file i noticed it was called scorcher.jpg..... and then i remembered there used to be a radio controlled car about 10yrs back which had 6 wheels and was called the scorcher! (cldt find any pics). However it used to steer the same way a tank does, ie on the remote u have a stick for forward/reverse per side of wheels, ie 1 for LHS 3wheels and one for RHS 3wheels.

rtech, the f1 u posted about seems like it would have a definite advantage in terms of putting power down....but then i seem to think that if there were tight hairpins etc the car would not be soo happy......i wonder if they used tires with slightly larger sidewalls on the rear tires to enable easier steering.

cheers
Rehaan
