Cornering at high speed
What about the brakes and shock absorbers and the tyre wear A powerful engine needs equally powerful brakes.

Colouration would be near zero and we would all buy one!
This was the theory behind Quad's electrostatics and the Fane Ionophone but these solutions have their own problems and limitations.
