They've been given breaks to run 800kg. Look at Kolles: they're 75kg overweight and I bet the AER is around 130kg. The Toyota was probably 110kg.

Both teams will strugle to make this weight as thier cars were designed for 900kg which is why i think they should concentrate on getting extra power and fuel breaks from the ACO.

Per Racecar Engineering July 2014, the car was designed around a 850kg minimum weight. They were lobbying for a break to "at least 800kg" and got it.

The Xtrac 1159 gearbox they're using is rated for 850nm. This is probably exactly what Kolles is fitting to their car.

AER engine is in the range of 3.5-4.0L + twin turbo, the weight should be not less than 150kg

Bart Hayden says its decision on engines isnt related to Toyota's performance, but their discontinuation of supplying them. It seems like Toyota may offer another engine in the future, maybe based on the current GT500 2L turbo.

AER make light engines. http://www.mulsannescorner.com/aerturbolmp1v8.html Might have something to do with how difficult it has been to make their engines reliable. Still, they are installing them in Champ Cars now and that must be very exciting with a claimed 1,000 hp.

The 2014 RE article on Rebellion claimed +/- 115 kg and the TS030 unit is apparently close to 100 kg now. It probably varies depending on whether builders include the exhaust, inlet tract or fluids. BMW claimed they could have gone down to 68 kg with their F1 V8 if they hadn't had to comply with the rulebook's limitations.

Rebellion seems to have no major problem with it. It's Kolles's issue if they can't make the diet work.

I don't think ACO can continue handing them restrictor + whatever engine breaks forever thou, there comes the limit. Same with tank sizes, you'd need to start (equally) decreasing the factory tank capacities itself.

Do you think the ACO are willing to give more bop breaks to get them closer to the works teams or was Bart Hayden’s wishes to run a few seconds behind the factory teams always a faulty assumption

French magazine AutoHebdo reports that Rebellion Racing have ultimately opted to run with the AER engine and - unfortunately - would have to miss the first FIA-WEC round at Silverstone due to the necessary changes to the engine installation.

Aww Judd V10 would've been so awesome - or HPD

With AER it means spec-rivalry between them and Kolles Gang. Guess they wanted 'safer' option

So many potential powerplants and no takers

Or it means we can see who actually has a better car. I know it will be low on the list of interesting things in P1 this year, but when was the last time two privateers were battling in P1?
