You create outward momentum in a turn right? So that also pushes weight to your outside wheels. Hold a weight on a string...spin around in a circle. Which way does it want to go? just because you lean inside while turning doesn't mean all of your weight disappears from your outside wheels. Which way does your car want to roll over in a turn? Toward the outside of the curve. Placing what?Pediglide wrote:I know I'm wasting more of you guys time, but I should have posted this before. Its so simple.
Just think of the one motor on the rear, if you turn and the motor is driving is the rear inside wheel, it doesn't matter how much lean, you will always have traction.
Now if you turn the other way, and the motor is the driving the rear outside wheel, there is a possibility that if you lean too much, you will lift the rear outside wheel and lose traction. <-----That is the same effect of an open differential on the rear truck.
You can counter it, try to avoid it from happening, tighten the hell your trucks, not care about the affect on efficiency or something, but still...its limited compared to when you have the power on the inside rear wheel.
Zboard users complain about this all the time, and they use narrower trucks than mine.
Answer: All of your weight on your outside wheels.
Zboards could make a lower board, with foot pedals that aren't mounted at either end of the board. That way you could actually have a comfortable/natural stance . Then the board wouldn't have a tendency to want to tip mid turn. Nobody rides a board that way. Problem solved
