Re: Bus steering wheels..

by the way didn't claim it was the gospel truth either.
It's just what the old timers told me when we started modifying our cars

Re: Bus steering wheels..

It would turn quicker because with a smaller steering wheel, less movement is needed to turn the steering shaft the same amount. Same thing as smaller tires have to turn faster to cover the same distance as larger ones. That's why when you change tire size your speedometer will be off and your gear ratio will change. Since the steering shaft is not altered (nor the steering gear) the number of turns lock to lock would be the same. The wheel would just turn much "quicker" to make one revolution.

Anyway no one was putting you down for saying that... That's not how we are on this board. We're all here to learn, and we all know that. Eggman was just trying to explain it to ya, I wanted to but I suck at explaining stuff sometimes (which is why I put "ha ha" in my last post... not to make fun of you)

Re: Bus steering wheels..

A large steering wheel is so you'll have enough leverage to retain control over your bus in the event of a blowout. I feel you may be asking for trouble if you try to go too small.
