I noticed they did that for basketball & other wheelchair sports, I thought it was just to keep the top edge of the wheel from chafing the wrist so much. Also possibly giving the chair a wider stance but not understanding how it would aid down force. I'm no engineer.

Sports wheelchairs have major negative camber, so the operator doesn't high-side the chair. The drive system for the motor conversion has two little wheels that rub against the front of the 24 inch wheel, that disallows a radical negative camber setting.

I've got to get another chair that costs $1,400.00 for the conversion kit to work, since it won't fit on the one I'm using, so it's $$$$$$$ time.

Have to sell off some more junk I guess. That, or off some of the coin colleciton (that I don't want to do).

Get Buz to set it up like he did before. I'm in for a few.

Thanks Guys. That would be cool, and we'd have a nice article to boot.
