I don't think I'm going to consider this. I don't want to go into any expensive modifications. To begin with, I'm going to make simple and free changes : reducing weight (45 kg), reducing rolling resistance (hyperinflated green tires) and reducing frontal area/aero drag (removing right rear-view mirror and radio antenna). And maybe some wheel skirts later.
