    I've got a couple different design options but, have to wait on a little extra cash for another test canopy. Design phase is pretty much over but, may need to alter the design and may need a few more canopies depending on how the tests go. I'll let you know. Wish me luck.

    that is very off. our cars are actually quite light considering the engine/tranny. an rx8 or 350z will be around 3200 (due to new safety laws etc). and the older 90s civics and such weigh about 2500. 1500 is about the weight of an elise, which is why it is about the same speed is our cars with that little toyota 4 banger.

    also, the wheel weight is simply the combination of a weaker power steering and wide, heavy wheels (i assume), not the actual weight of our cars. a 3900 lb 6 series has a steering wheel that feels much lighter.

    I'm almost 6' 145-150lbs. No problem getting in or out. The guy that works on my car and a lot of the cars in Colorado is like 6' 7". His opinion may be different lol.

    I dunno, I'm 6', 225-230lbs and it is somewhat of a pain in the ass getting out of the car at times. Small price to pay though...
