Weight


What you do:

Design your car with weight in mind.


Factors to consider:

1. Lighter cars have faster top speeds and better acceleration.

2. Lighter cars get less traction off the line.

The HiPerMath equation is:

weight = 385
+ wheelbase x 10
+ ((front track + rear track) / 2) x 10
+ number of turbos x (turbo size + 100)
+ supercharger cfm + 50 (if you have a super charger)
           10
+ total carburetor cfm + 5
                 100
+ cubic inches + 100
+ 2 x (front tire diameter + front tire width - 5)
+ 2 x (rear tire diameter + rear tire width - 5)
