I respectfully disagree to your disagreement :)

With the dual pods you're going to be inherantly faster on the track because you can sit lower in the seat and look between the pods as opposed to the need for a phonebook booster seat to see over the monopod.

Lower seating position = lower CoG and rollcenter = faster through the corners.

Black dualpods are faster yet because there's less refractive light coming off the sheetmetal reflecting into the windshield and/or drivers eyes and heat rises off darker colors faster than lighter, so the heatwaves on black ones in effect lighten the whole car as they radiate rapidly away.

It's simple math, lighter car + lower CoG and rollcenter = faster :D
