The part about the amount of scrub at the sidecar tire with various amounts of wheel lead is well explained. Some good points made in all diagrams which are hard to express in just words.

Okay Phyllis, why don't YOU get real and post something intelligent other than slandering someone who had good information out there!
Let's hear YOUR version of set up dude, it probably entails baling wire and duct tape pulled out of your arse.....

You'd be wrong.

I'd like it "dumbed downed" please and thank you.

Can you simplify it to where I can plug in track width and wheel base, for instance, and arrive at an ideal or ideal range for sidecar wheel lead? I appreciate the article and might understand it when I get a chance to sit down and mull it over, but it doesn't come naturally to me and I am busy trying to rebuild a couple of hacks for the BlackDog.


And Phyliss,
I'd be genuinely interested in how you determine where to set the sidecar wheel lead on your builds, as well. Lot's of ways to skin a cat-how do you do it?

Thumbs down

Not sure how or why this thread got started. I did offer to simplify it if you need, not to negate any ones abilities, just to help. It is just intended to help, to use as a starting point or just to inform or help to understand how things work better than if you where to just guess. If you don't like it, oh well. It does work and after hundreds of installs based on this, I can say that with confidence. I would appreciate this thread removed as it serves no purposeful use to any ones benefit. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but when it is a verbal attack aimed to discredit someone, that's uncalled for. Thanks.

I agree, that's why we have moderators. I'll personally be watching this one.
