The last of the tips on truck design. This time I explained, why more wight in front is better, and why a shorter truck is better than a long one.



Thanks for watching!

Hi,

Have you tried to do a model where the weight can be moved - on a moving axle?

Or have a two motor solution one for the front wheels and another for the back ones - which would operate together (same direction)?

Thanks,
Noam

Maybe with smaller wheels, these are way TOO heavy.
I personally distribute weight like this: 60% front 40%rear.

I know the pieces fit.
