Indeed, the Bachmann Amfleets are more likely to have the same rolling problems than, say, a Walthers Superliner.

Now we're getting into the physics of three-axle trucks, completely irrelevant to the thread's issues.

Not sure anybody said anything about three-axle trucks?

Why in Hades is this discussion wandering into anything other than Walthers Amfleet cars?

If somebody on a car forum was trying to get their new Chevy Malibu to start with the keyless starter and having trouble, and I said "you know, I found on my Chevy Equinox that you have to press the starter button while your foot is on the brake or it won't start", I suppose could be considered drifting off-topic, since my Chevy isn't a Malibu. Similarly, my giving a general suggestion or two based on the different types of Walthers cars I've owned isn't to my mind particularly off-topic for a discussion of Walthers passenger cars.

But this isn't that thread, and shouldn't be drifted into becoming that thread.

Actually, compared to many threads on this forum, this one seemed to me to be staying on-topic pretty well. I've seen some (lots?) that have wandered way off topic! Wink
