Default Re: Felt MP with 6.5+Hp engine mounted in a sidecar?

Don't forget, those old cars have 2 wheels steering in the front.
I was just thinking about how you drive a traditional sidecar rig, and I believe you need to accelerate on right turns, because the bike travels further than the sidecar. On your proposed rig, accelerating would make things worse on a right turn. You would have to cut the throttle on right turns, which might not be enough. Your rig may require a brake on the right wheel.

It should make lefts like nobody's business. Maybe use it for circle track?
