Re: Rick's 1973 VW Super Beetle build
Weight should really be considered, think of it as replacing the weight with additional batteries, better acceleration, longer range.
A few examples:
Starter motor 10 lbs
Spare tire 30 lbs
flywheel 13 lbs
rear seat 27 lbs
gas tank 20 lbs
Basically about 100 lbs in just a few items, it's all weight you don't have to drag up a hill or get moving from a dead stop. These items are about the same as 8 Calb180 cells.
