    What about gyroscopic stability and such? Forces of rotational mass, centrifigual force.... those are all physics related, right? Fun stuff to know about.

    But see bro, after you flop your truck, the inevitable question of "what just happened" will come up. Pivot points, fulcrums, COG and the like could save your life!:D I sure wish I paid attention in high school. I slipped through 3 different high schools with a 1.8 GPA (If I recall correctly). Not trying to preach to you bud, but get what you can from it, ya know?

    You gotta love the physics man. That was my favorite class, I look forward to diving in a little deeper in college. I belive it is very essential for basic common sense in a hobby like ours. You don't have to have the formula's and all the fancy schooling on it necessarily. But a basic grasp of all the concepts can greatly help your mechanical aptitude and ability to figure things out. You can't come up with new ideas that will work without knowing ahead of time how things will work.
