Yeah, but with smaller batteries and electronics, you're going to have to get the car up to legal weight anyways, whynot make it functional balast?

But what would legal weight be with lighter batteries and such????

Ever watch those old reels from the 50's and 60's showing that we'd be driving flying cars in the year 2000 and having robots do our chores..... I'm still waiting!!!!

we have flying cars....... i managed to get it 4 foot in the air at least once a meeting

robots that do chores.. microwaves. dish washers. them welders that put cars together. theres loads robots these days.

and when the cars get lighter they will drop the legal limit. but you will always have to add weight, the race bodys are not going to set the minimum weight for the lightest car availalable. milled out etc

if that makes any sense at all.
