I daydreamed through most of my science classes but I seemed to remember a
concept where, if you could mount the smaller unit from a central pivot point
and then spin it around on this new axis, the gyroscopic effect could have a
profound impact on the larger mass.
There was a term for this but, alas, I seem to have forgotten it.
But I'm not sure you could apply this on your case.
