weight

There is no *horizontal* component of weight.

On an inclined plane there *is* a component of weight that is _parallel to
the surface_, which will act to impel the sled along the surface. There is
also a *normal* component of weight that will press it against the surface.

If the plane is *inclined,* then the surface is _not_ horizontal.

Sorry. Attribute that error to a very long workday. I
meant exactly what you stated.

you are correct. but the principle remains entirely the same. just
that the car can reach a higher v before centrifugal force overcomes
the counterbalancing centripetal forces provided by the friction
component and of course the weight of the car in the horizontal
direction.

You're getting closer! No component of the car's weight acts in the
horizontal direction; the weight of course acts purely downwards. A
component of the - normal force - acts horizontally. The normal force is
numerically equal to the weight if the car is on a horizontal surface, but
is unequal to it on a banked surface - in fact the normal force will exceed
the weight in this case.

youre right . my maths on this is rusty . but the important thing for
me is understanding the concepts. i never ever could until i read the
NASA site on centrifugal force and realised that that was exactly the
viewpoint i argued to my school physics teacher all those years ago.

with that understanding i can go back and do the maths and it will now
make sense. especially when using the rotating reference frame.
