I ran the car again today, with two wraps of rubber on the drive-wheel on the same 12' length tether (.031" SS stranded-cable)

The 1st run tore-up the "outer-wrap" of rubber in short-order.. and the car flipped end-over-end.. before completing a full lap.

For the next trial, I added weight to the mid-frt. of the car by using a binder-clip and pinewood-derby car weights. This added 1.25oz. to the car.. for a total weight of 6.75oz.

The torn outer-wrap of tire-rubber came-off when starting the engine for the 2nd-run.. but I was able to at least get a few laps on the car, without it flipping over again. The inner-wrap of tire-rubber gave-way after about the 5th lap.

Five laps Roddie, I would call that a successful run. It was even doing a few wheelies in the first lap.
Get the tire problem sorted and it'll be all go, although you might want something a bit more substantial for a front wheel for prolonged runs.
Nothing like proving a concept. Thumbs Up

Hi Dave, yea.. the front-end was lifting.. affraid even after I added weight. The weight could probably have been placed more forward.. but it kept the car from flipping-over again. When the tire starts to shred, it def. ends the fun.. but at least it causes the engine to stall.. and not over-rev. The 2nd vid shows a faint 24 foot diameter ring of burnt-rubber from the tire breaking-down. I actually thought that was pretty cool! Smoking

The front wheel(s) need to be some type of soft foam, if I continue to run on the rough pavement.

Good job man! I bet that once you work out the kinks that thing will go pretty good. Thanks for taking a second run at it! It was worth it.

Congratulations Roddie! Those videos were great! It was fun watching you get a decent run of of your own design car. Now, I know why the tires on the Shrike I have are worn unevenly. That outboard wheel really took a beating on the asphalt! Thanks for sharing the videos!
