    Track width to wheelbase ratio affects vehicle dynamics so much that it can turn the car into a motorcycle.

    now if we could make a motorcycle segway....like a motorized unicycle...we might be onto something.

    FTFY.

    Of course I googled that, by the way: http://solowheel.com/

    Yeah, but..., the OP is asking about "track width to wheelbase ratio"....

    I keep entering "0/0" and all I get is an error message...

    Z

    (PS. SRI, Forget about the ratio. For FSAE you want close to minimum for both numbers (Min WB = 1525mm from rules, Min track = so car does NOT fall off tilt table.

    PPS. I want one of those ^ ! )

    Although incorrect, let's ponder the implications of using the contact patch of the single wheel for the track width and wheelbase...
