Alex, die "steering angles" is sekerlik identies.

The wheelbase of the shorty is roughly 25% shorter than that of the LWB's Thus, the turning circle will also be 25% shorter.

Which is why they are so succesful in challenge-type events.

Okay, so it does not turn sharper, it only feels like it because it is shorter?
The turning circle being longer for longer vehicles, even if the wheels are turned equally.

You see these common facts of physics don't come naturally to me!

Alex dit lyk verby bakgat, seriously seriously jaloers :redface:

Wat die interior betref, praat met Ian, hy het daai GQ se binnekant (matte, roof lining, deur panele en sitplekke) alles laat vervang/nuut oorgetrek vir so 7K, ek reken dit is glad nie sleg nie...........
