Spridget 3wheeling

It still feels like Winter here and so I mostly stayed inside today.

Since I'm semi-bored, I figured I'd put together some 3-wheel shots of me and friends.

One shot is actually just a wheel lock-up but still a decent shot.

The last shot is actually on two wheels. :smile-new:

Before I swapped engines, I could have put together some great 2 wheel shots... Not nearly the fun kind like yours though... Mine broke way too much stuff

Ahh Spring- it will come eventually- always has. The pics help as it too cold for me to in the garage today also. A neighbor has a Nova drag car with some 500+ c.i. and fired up the other day. It always gets my blood running to hear it.

Do you feel it when you're driving when a wheel gets airborne like that, or does someone show you later "Dude, you hit the three-wheel motion around that last turn!"?

I generally can't feel the wheel lift. But it sort of depends on the circuit.

With the PVGP street circuit, the road drops away a lot at points and it's impossible not to do this.

Some of my other Spridget-racer pals loft the inside-front wheel even higher.

Saw a 26R Elan lift the front wheel, I would guess, a foot at RA last year avoiding a spin-out. My street spridgets would just wash out the front end. The tire's now day's must be something.
