Sounds great. You could develop the kind of project pgfpro had here on EM. Before his Talon, which was amazing, he had tuned a three-stage Civic for fuel economy in a specific RPM range and throttle position (IIRC) and power under some other conditions.

The weight distribution problem sounds kinda, well, dangerous maybe. Traction on the power wheels would be fine, but how would braking and especially cornering be affected?

The power/weight ratio, tho! Fun.

We could think of it as an ecomodded K series, lol.
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
