Formula E isnt really the benchmark in electric technology. I specifically didnt mention them for that reason.CAEdevice wrote:It is funny: none of the car mentioned above has aero development (one of them does not exist at all), except for drag reduction for Tesla.
On the contrary, Formula E, that is a real race car, with basic aero performance, seems to have radiators.

Anyway: cooling added realism and made the design more interesting in KVRC, but a good project in 2015 is still winning in 2016 (with advanced cooling). See MantiumRay for example.
Will we see you at the Nurburgring or in Monaco?
A fully charged Tesla would most likely win against a Formula E car with 4 passengers and no need to switch cars during the race. And even Tesla's arent the benchmark. F1 for instance has the most advanced batteries of non-military vehicles, only Koenigsegg has them in a production car. They are still quite heavy though - but that will change soon enough.
At the end of the day, electric = less cooling.
