is there any benefit in having a thinner front wheel,as per blowkart and many other yacht I've seen, with layover steering used on beaches,,would it give higher speed and increase or decrease bite on turning.

I have had 16 inch BMX wheels and 8 inch wheelbarrow wheels on the front of my minis and I would say the difference is minimal for practice purposes. The main reason blowkarts use a small skinny front wheel is to make a smaller portable package when it is packed in its bag.
