SLIDING 5TH WHEEL PLATE
We have noticed while driving our own and others rigs that, depending on what you are pulling and the weight of the trailer, these semi's seem to "push" or under steer very badly if you what you are pulling has any weight to it. We have come up with a solution for this. On 1:1 semi's, you can adjust the position of the 5th wheel to change the distribution of weight. Sliding the 5th wheel will change the weight distribution between the steer axle and the drive axles. If you slide the 5th wheel toward the nose of the tractor you will increase the weight on the steer axle and take weight off the drive axles. If you move the 5th wheel toward the rear of the tractor, you will increase the weight on the drive axles and decrease the weight on the steer axle.
Allow us to introduce to you the Gear Jammer RC Sliding 5th Wheel Plate! With 10 different setting totaling nearly 3" of adjustment, your tractor will be road worthy regardless of what dispatch hooks you to!
