It's disappointing, that all almost anyone ever likes is the same as every other formula car. FE cars look like any other formula car, with very little distinguishing factor.Andres125sx wrote:I don´t like the look of any of those cars either, I actually like FE cars a lot more
It also seems the everyone only cares about liking a look. With no consideration to other factors. (In the case I suggested: better efficiency/range (and such less weight), safety, less disruption to the race, better reliability/durability)
I keep mentioning the stuff I do (even later in this post) primarily because of performance improvements. As
Yes they can. The cars would just be heavier. For example. Take the Rimac for example: 1,850 kg 800kW power, 82kWh battery, 500km Range. Throw away everything but the batteries motors and transmission. Replace everything else with a formula chassis an other components. You might shed several hundreds of kilos. (It's a large two seater car with lots of superflous stuff. 300-400kg? More? I can't say)Andres125sx wrote:About more powerful motors, they can´t be used if battery does not improve.
The range would be of course a fraction of the official range. But, cutting down the weight, and with a more aerodynamic car it would be improved a lot (especially if you go with enclosed wheels and a wing car formula).
You can replace the batteries with under-development lithium-sulphur cells, which already provide 150% the energy (might be 200% soon), to cut down battery/car weight further. The technology already exists
I'd rather prefer a true grand prix length (300km) race, even if it's with 2-3 swaps.Andres125sx wrote:At least if race length is not reduced, what would be a good idea if you ask me. I´d rather prefer a short race with no car change than current formula where first half of the race is almost irrelevant as any time you lost/won in first half can be multiplied by a factor of 10 with a good or bad car change
Your criticism is simply not true with the time limit. In any normal circumstance the driver swaps before the time runs out and waits to start.
