As I was putting together a car for the recent Super Cars race, it had me thinking about weight on a road course like Bootleg Run. Popular thought is a heavy car goes faster, and in a straight line downhill, that's probably true, but what about around the curves?
Weight will get you speed and momentum but won't the heavy cars have more trouble in the curves? I'd think a lighter car could handle them better, especially when there are several like on the Bootleg.
I'm gonna test a little bit with my entries...one will be at weight (60g) and the other less. I'll still add some extra weight to help it off the line but I'll be interested to see if the less weight helps it handle the lefts and rights more.
I'm sure science has a real answer, but what have you seen and experienced?
