I was thinking of how a reuleaux triangle shaped wheel could be used instead of a circular wheel. Is there a simple way to adjust the cars axle or to have some sort of unusual mounting between the axle and the wheel to allow a reuleaux triangle to work instead of a circular wheel.
The only problem from what I can tell is that the point where the axle meets the wheel would need to keep adjusting depending on what part of the wheel is in contact with the surface. I'm guessing the axle would need to trace an almost triangular path around the centre of the wheel to maintain the vehicles constant rideheight.
Obviously there would be severe wear issues given the shape of the wheel but that would be beside the point
