So... Lotus F1 was having trouble paying their bills and figured the transporter was gonna be repo'd anyway and there was probably a 50% chance they'd kill Grosjean and therefore not have to cover his salary. SO... you know... they did this... :D » 11/21/14 3:38pm Friday 3:38pm

I don't understand this part. You say it's heavier because it's got crankpins on two axes. What does that mean? Looking at the side by side diagrams, there seems to be exactly the same amount of material in each. They're just angled differently.

I'm utterly confused by this whole thing. What is it about the locking system that's causing these cars to roll away? What does one thing have to do with the other?
