Could the rudder flap be used to adjust the trim so the vehicle tracks straight in a sidewind?

According to the FIA rules, you cannot use winged surfaces to control the vehicle, otherwise it's considered an airplane. We just cannot run when the wind is blowing.

FIA Appendix D - 2016

D2.3.3 Category C: Special Automobiles.
D2.3.3.a These Records may be subdivided according to the
type of engine used (jet, rocket, etc.).
D2.3.3.b The use of moveable aerodynamic devices is
permitted.

Just in case you need them keep to five wheels!

If you lost two wheels an ran to FIM rules, then they state
81.01 General
No part of a motorcycle (with the exception of extreme aerodynamic vehicles, also
known as ‘Streamliners’) may extend beyond the wheels. No airfoils, spoilers or
movable external control surfaces are allowed.

81.19 STREAMLINED (Special Construction Vehicles, or ‘Streamliners’)
No movable external control surfaces are allowed. No airfoils or spoilers are allowed
if not integrated in the basic streamlined form. Only one (1) single rear fixed vertical
fin is allowed

A little PR in the New York area. Maybe some rich guy will read it and help us with some funding?

Here is a pretty good show about the North American Eagle that aired on our local channel. It covers a great deal of the life of the project.
It aired mid September just before we went to the Alvord Dry Lake for our test runs.

April 22nd update has some pretty good content. We're going through the usually government drill trying to get our permit to run in the desert.
