When Lee Eyerly took the Lar
cc special out on 4b9 track this
spring and began' to speed op. be
ound tbat it didn't balance just
igbt. It was a bit too hear be
lindV so that when he tried to take
he tarns at 74 miles an hour It
ikidded. , ?, . ' '' t .
The heaviest part, which was
he rear end,. skidded the most,
so that In reality he had to pall
;he wheel as tot a right hand turn
while actually driTing the sharp
eft-hand turn ot the race course,
nee- the car slid out through the
laace, .fortunately with no damage-.

ii i Battery Is Shifted.
; Drirlng back to the garage, Ey
erly took out the battery that had
been slung under the car near the
rear end. -and mounted It three
feet farther forward, up under the
hood. , With the weight that much
higher, and on the right or turn
ing side, the tendency Is to throw
the , weight ; to the right wheels
and coax the car to capsize which
indeed it-might do at a great
enough speed. . But by throwing
the weight on two wheels instead
of distributing it skiddingly on
four, it makes the car far safer
both for the driver and for the
other contestant a. The skid is the
worst thing that can happen in a
race. ..;.' , ',4
. " Other Corrections Made, v
The other part of the skidding
danger, the whip-cracker centri
fugal effect of the heary rear end
that would not be controlled, has
born corrected by the shifting of
the weight forward, enough to
give the car fire or six miles more
speed than had been safe on the
