Dice rolls
I think we need to remember the dice not only could we use
dice to say how long it takes to design and build the car, but they
can also be used to say how much better the design is than expected

ie the rules would say if you take engine A frame B gear C
and so on the car will be D
but with dice we could allow the cars to exceed this
say like faster speeds, better control, more space
this would explane why some vehicles like the BLITZEN and the DYNAMO
are better than the other cars of the same type
ie why everything they have doesn't add up ( 2 + 2 = 5)

so instead of less time we could give better performance.
