- FP Armor Option - if armor is reduced to FP only, you save 164.8 lbs, and $1650; max FP armor would be 15 more points; 7800.2 lbs. $94145 (oops, forgot to change the WG on those numbers; ah well)
- Non Steelbelted Option - if tires are non-StB, you save 269.8 lbs, $7500; that would allow 22 pts LRFP armor, 7796.4 lbs, $88845
- Most Armor Option - armor is FP, tires are only Solid-FP-Radials; add 38 pts vehicle armor, 7 pts WG/WH: 7798 lbs, $87632
Design Notes - After trying to upgrade the Impetus, an inane van with linked twin lasers, I saw that this weaponry could fit inside a pickup with only 1 space missing. Hence the laser battery with the IC engine (if it went up to 200 cu in then I'd need a bigger gas tank, and that would take 2 spaces, but a 150 with a supercharger would just fit). As it is, I really like this! 2x4D+4 front! Avg 36 pts damage with a successful hit.
I did some of the option calculations above. This could be a fun one to tweak. I left off spoilers & airdams, given that I don't expect this to be so speedy at a 72.5 ceiling.
I also left off many of the usual "unlimited" bells and whistles. I should make an entry for those standard modifications.
Another point is that I don't give guff if a design is 0.2 overweight. Let's be reasonable here.
