      I agree, for sure less weight is good and generally better in every sense, especially modifying and to me the direction of...

      This is kind of specific. But I have heard of nascar cheating where weight is added in the form of rolling lead balls as ballasts that would roll to the outside of the car while turning in order to...

      It brings added inertia, which can add stability when taking a bump event, which means more contact to the ground = traction!

      Weight also adds force to the tires, which adds heat and friction! if...

      I never said they added weight. To simplify, the weight of the car is the result of the car's targets. The performance of the driveline and chassis is enhanced and transferred where it matters by...

      The cars is the weight it is due to the driveline, the chassis, the safety requirements etc. But a car's mass can also be used to its advantage... it's not like they purposely added weight to it, but...

      You should share your findings with him, I'm sure all the thousands of hours of R&D has resulted in this obvious miscalculation. He's not fighting physics, he's obviously using them to his advantage...

      Unless you're actually taking tire temperatures, driving the car, data logging, and taking objective tests based on driving, all of this is assumption. I don't think Ford overlooked the aspect of...

      I think looking at the weight distribution alone doesn't tell the story of how a car will perform when it turns.
