I am going to start Flying Kites!
Seriously! I hate everytime people make the comparison to Offraod and oval Pancars! Come on get for real two totally different scenerios stop comparing!
Opening a hole in the body is a great Idea all you need are a couple of air scoops.
Another thing is tire manufactures need to try and make ligther wheel and tire combos. Materials to make the tires better is there and stronger lighter wheels also.
The electronics manufacture just plain and simply need to beef it up.
Without a doubt motors need to be up to date with materials!
Also lets reduce the weight of the cars. Less weight to push around.
Battery capacity! Freeze it at say 4200mah for a period 4yrs as an example!
It would make it less an issue and slow the battery wars for us. Make it a standerd. Going down on mah is a backward step. Using smaller dimension batteries ex. AA, AAA's wont help they cant handle the draw of a mod motor in a heavy sedan .
We can also maybe look at posibly going two wheel drive. Less weight and moving parts! Maybe this way we can make realistic looking LMP cars like at lemans. Might bring back the simplicity of the pancars but with independant suspensions.
Maybe bring back the 12 scale sedans, but use wheels that look to scale plus more realistic body then they used. You'll need to make those cars lighter also they are heavy due to 4wd. Make them Front wheel drive or rear wheel drive. Most real world touring cars are front wheel drive or rear, 4wd is banned!
One thing that we need to really change is those damn Taxi cab bodies we race. Going to a real sports car type body maybe even LMP will make the car more aero and have less drag to make it more effeciant. Less amp draw to accelerate!
