Back Seats Back, Alright!
This is where all the cells have moved to. When you want the car to still drive like a MINI it is important that you don't add a bunch of weight up high above the belt line and raise the center of gravity. So, we sat all the heavy cells down between the wheels. We removed over 80 lbs by eliminating a full gas tank, and another 40 lbs with no exhaust, but we added 300 lbs with the packs. We'll have to get her on the scales to find out for certain, but we think that despite the extra 180 lbs of batteries in back there may have been no net weight gain because of the lighter motor vs engine.
