A nice article on CP CG by Eva Hakansson and Bill Dube who campaign their electric side car streamlined motorcycle.  They are also engineers and well qualified to comment on the subject.  The article is filed in the tech section.  Thanks to them for writing it and Jon / Bob for putting on the site.

Hello, where is this article filed? Thank you!

Hi I was trying to find this article to read it and offer comment but I seem unable to find it. Is it still available?

This statement may be more fitting here  :?


On my car I start out with most of my cooling water 20" behind the rear axle---during the run I actually move about  80# from behind the rear axle to 108" in front which really helps on trying to get CG more in front of the CP.


like it, like it a lot :wink:
