I'm about , to race in a very long track (300' plus) race. I read somewhere that on long tracks, heavy wheels actually have an advantage, but the details were not very clear. I assume that this has to do with the accompanying long flat runout, the inertial momentum of the wheel become important relative to the friction so the car maintains speed. Does anyone have a good understanding of this?
Also looking for any other general advice on prepping for a long wood track race. I have time and good access to quality tools (like CAD and cnc's) so the sky is the limit for my options.
