You are correct about over engineered . When I was at Fisker they were in the process of making the car lighter and placing heat sensors all over the car to test what parts they could start removing to reduce weight and remove cooling system parts and monitor the changes . Even going as far of drilling holes in the front bumper to increase cooling . If things had moved forward they would of eleminated cooling pumps and hoses etc . Like you mentioned over engineered .
Guess they finally reliezed the heat shields were overkill and I can't agree with them more . Removing the heat shields has helped more then not
