the Decepticons are none the wiser
there are limits of weight that can be put on each axle. They lower the spare ones when carrying a heavier weight. They withdraw the spare when it isn't needed to use less pretrol FFS
it's for when it goes over a jump
when it is not carrying such a load they lift it up to preserve it.
when it's carrying a heavier weight, but if it's not they lift the wheels up to save a petrel.
Like innies and outies?
It's for jumps.
it's probably so that when you get run over by a truck you get a bit less run over than if all the wheels touched the ground
they actually quickly lower the wheels when they run you over so that the weight is spread more evenly and you are not hurt
is that physics? surface area vs pressure, something like that?
Don't forget about physics again please
if all the wagons have floating wheels/>?
