If you look closely you will notice the pans were different widths and thicknesses to go around the donut on the blue king.

yes now I see that.

So the right side looks to be heavy. Is that correct? and I assume the  EBD adds to that bias ?

 

Who figured that one out? I did notice that Bob Emott had one of the only cars at Tottenham sept 69 that had that EBD bias for the do-nut. I will check that. Yep right side heavy.

But you took it further with the heavy pans. Very cool.

I offset the brass weight in my low CG guides for the same reason.

Guys who don't run on Kings are screwed. Lol

Now that is clever. I had no idea that item was available. Do you have a pic on hand?

But it also seems like the Champion cans didn't really lend themselves to can-drive because they had that big bearing.

Only on the offset part.

 

I always try to get them in the middle.

:dash2: So there no such product?  Why not? sounds like a micro advantage. Races are won with small advantages. I did think it was a bit too close to the center-line to make a difference, but what do I know. :crazy:

No, there is such a product.
 
I'm not sure why Bill posted.
 
The raceway he races at, sells them, and the top guys there, win with them.

 Mike-

 

I was referring to the "offset" part of your comment, I am amazed you can consistently get the brass insert in the center of the blade!

 

Cheers

Agreed. The offset comment created some confusion.

NBD.

There is a lot of fiddling around, adjusting my machinery, and they are not all perfect.

Thanks Mike, I did miss post # 57 but now I see the low CG design, clever. What I was visualizing was a tungsten weight on one side, basically stuff it underneath the braid in the gap. You can move from right to left side ( or on both sides) and check the difference in lap times with and without. Just a thought that may have no significant difference. But is it worth a try?
