Ed, you never want a high COG on anything with wheels.....
Yes, it tips in easier, but it is way harder to reverse direction too
Lower the front end instead, that lowers the COG making it even easier
Think about it .... If the COG was 12" off the ground it would totally flickabl
regardless (to a point) of the steering angle
