    Based on what it takes to build a car that's actually about $10k, I am very skeptical of Stuttgart's cost.

    Tennessee Tech's car cost, I'm much less skeptical about. $5500, was it? That car was built for one reason, win cost. It had a carburated V twin Briggs and Straton, centrifugal clutch, 600 sprint car rear axle, wheel and drive assembly. It had no muffler, aluminum/ steel everything, American Racer tires, and still weighed about 600lbs.
    It also had aluminum front and rear aero. However, I've never seen a car that wanted to tip over at such low lateral accelerations.
