My point is that a Toppola >looks< solid but it >is< not. The weight of a 99 CC is around 1200 kg, a 900 1300 kg . The center of gravity of the car alone is somewhere near the ignition switch. If you add the Toppola with its cog maybe 1 m above this level and 2 m behind it (900 wheelbase is 2.50 m), it can be calculated that the cog of the car+Toppola moves only about 17 cm to the back and less than 10 cm up. This will hardly be noticeable. ------- MH
