Kalkat Posted February 15, 2007 Report Share Posted February 15, 2007 Keith, I got into an argument with a racer friend over whether load transfers front or back when you accelerate. I was VERY positive that load transfers back when you accelerate, and forward when you brake/decelerate. My friend thought it was the other way around. and he said he read so in TOTW, so i decided to go home and check myself. Wat i found was funny, and confusing. At numeroous places, Keith talked about loading the back by accelerating ( one such instance was chapter 10, page 81, in TOTW). but then, in TOTW II, chapter 3, i found a mention where Keith says that the rear will RISE when you accelerate!!!!! and gave the same eg that my friend had given me, of puttin the front against a wall and rolling on throttle and seeing that its the rear that rises! NOw, this is pretty confusing. If the weight shifts back when you get on gas, then how can the rear rise? I am sure the mere mortal me would be mssing something, but would you mind explaining Keith? Thanks! oops, plz move it to 'setup and handling' if this is the wrong forum. apologies. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
