      no rule against it, bro. All the other racers have the option to make bigger podracers but they didn't. Hell, even Maggie Gyllenhaal went in there with 4 pods instead of 2. Also this

        Mars Guo’s podracer was even bigger than Sebulba’s.
        But yeah, it’s money. Sebulba wins races, makes a lot of money, buys a big and powerful podracer, and wins even more money. After his wreck, the EU had him buy an even bigger podracer to replace this one. There’s a shot of it on a poster in Anakin’s room in Clone Wars.
        The fact that he has a Sebulba poster is wholesome to me. Anakin clearly didn’t have any hard feelings.

      the bigger pod weighs more, produces higher drag and requires more energy to reach the same speed a lightweight pod would.

      Sebulba got btfo by a manlet in a go kart because he was striking a pose with a pointlessly huge rig.

        Yes but larger engines produce more horsepower so it more than evens out the weight increase because engines and fuel are only a part of the weight of the whole desing which includes fixed weight like the pilot and avionics and the whole wienerpit. Drag is even less of an issue because it scales with frontal area (second power) while engine thrust scales with the volume of the engine (third power).
        The real problem with larger engines is the reduced frontal visibility.

    The Pod Racers all had different stats. Some had higher top end, but were slow to accelerate. Others accelerated extra quick, but had a lower max speed. Some had tighter or wider turns and maneuverability.

      Why wouldn’t they just put the wienerpit between the engines?

      • 1 month ago

        My best guess is having the wienerpit separate from the engines is the closest thing to a safety measure you’ve got in pod racing. When the engines go and disintegrate, you and the wienerpit don’t have to go with them. We saw various racers, Mars Guo, Mawhonic, and even Sebulba himself who obviously survived their crashes and this was because the wienerpit basically acted like an ejection seat for them when the engines were exploding into flames.
        That one guy with the donut shaped wienerpit was a moron though, I bet he died from the centrifugal force of being spun that fast. It was the more flat, sled shaped wienerpits that had the softest crashes.

      "slave kids could be here" he thought, "I've never been in this neighborhood before. There could be slave kids anywhere." The arid wind felt good against his bare chest. "I HATE SLAVE KIDS" he thought. Sweet Dreams are Made of These reverberated his entire pod racer, making it pulsate even as the 9 credit wine circulated through his powerful thick veins and washed away his (merited) fear of slave kids after dark. "With a pod racer, you can go anywhere you want" he said to himself, out loud.

      notice he's the only human, it would be like a white guy winning the 100 meters, the seethe he would cause on a whole continent would be eternal, for aliens this was their own thing.
      Humans were already too numerous and now they coulnt even have podrace.

      For Sebulba, running into things (the other racers) was part of his strategy. Bigger engines have more mass so Sebulba could bully just about anyone else on the track. His crash with Anakin was pretty much a freak occurrence. The will of the force, perhaps. It clearly wasn’t the mass of Anakin’s pod that did it.

    This is pure Fantasy. Maybe it’s because I was a child at the time but when I saw these, man they were awesome. Think about it though. Even if the engines are floating and produce thrust. How the hell is the pod behind those engines with little to no tension on those hoses attached betweeen them.

      because without hard connection they're more difficult to control and the chance for accident is higher
