Hah! Yes, your low weight does make a difference. During my first ever driving school weekend, I was assigned two female instructors; one on Sat, a different one on Sunday. They both joked that while I might feel "weird about being teamed up with a chick," I should find benefit in the fact that they added so little weight to my car. Seriously, my first instructor must have been under 100 pounds.Tintin said:With all the 200+lbs guys around I'm thinking I've got to beat them on power-to-weight ratio alone even if my driving skills need to be improved.
