Am I missing a message? I know, nailing those few items on a sketch pretty well defines the vehicle. I should add that it should balance well with a full load, or only the driver, or else minimum ballast has to be specified. (Driving a Peterbilt without a trailer is a special skill, called "bobtailing.") The other bear is finding tires in the interesting load range with low rolling resistance and reasonable durability. Michelin has a nice one, but they only provide it for solar race events.
