Ignoring aerodynamic resistance, if the driver wants the truck to be able to achieve a minimum theoretical stopping distance of 275 ft from the point of brake application, what is the maximum amount of cargo (in pounds) that can be carried? 11. 018 for all speed conditions. 11]. 23 A race car with a 106-inch wheelbase has its weight evenly distributed between front and rear axles. 32% of the braking force on the front brakes. 2. At 150 mi/h, what percentage of the braking force should now be allocated to the front to achieve optimal braking?
