IDEA

Pedro Cunha,I agree with your suggestion,but i also have something to say about it. By moving the motors up will shift the COG of car nearer to the rear wheels,causing more friction on rear wheels than front wheels which results in unbalance distribution of force.

To overcome this we have to placed the components in such a way to make COG nearer to floor and in between the wheels. Also it is required to make the front of the car aerodynamically designed to reduce the loss of energy due to air drag force.

But i suggest you not to consider the motors to be placed at front.Hope you understand the technicalities related to this.@

@Hamza Mughal I see that as a design trade-off!! We have to make a decision and stick to it. Both have pros and cons!
