    Yeah read even more into this now, it's the engine that has the least friction etc and looks very clever.

    What was the link to meshman?

    I thought Roadies were actually heavier than the Fortwos?

    Cabriolets are invariably heavier than their tin-opener-free counterparts because they require reinforcing further down to keep them stiff (scuttle-shake is the name given to chassis flex on cabrio variants without sufficient stiffening). In the case of the FoUrTwo and Roadie, I think it's just because the Roadie's a bigger car, given that the trid is already very stiff.

    Why stop at two cylinders?

    It's just occured to me - if you're wanting to do an engine swap into a Roadie, why pick one with less power than one of the factory engines?

    You could always fit two engines?
