QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Why would you have cranks? - A.
They look good, help with
adhesion and look prototypical.
Q. Why would I have bearing
- A. Reduced maintenance
as there are no cranks to look after.
Q. Is it OK to use car
A. Yes. Today's batteries
are far more robust than that of 30 years ago. In heavy use you
can expect to get over three years use, possibly longer. While
traction batteries are designed for traction purposes, they
rarely out last car batteries. Costing over twice the price they
often prove to be false economy.
Q. Why don't you powder coat
bodies? - Powder coating can
be a more durable finish but it does have disadvantages. If
damaged it cannot be repaired. Acrylic car paints offer the
advantage of being able to be repaired or overpainted. It also
means that the average person can repaint a body to give it a
total new lease of life.
