Default Re: Follow up to the "counter weight" thread.

You are looking at the Model A from a modern perspective. The automobile, and everything else, developed progressively, not "once made and perfection achieved". Henry believed in cost control. Counterweights were not needed in cars that were run on mostly dirt roads and not very fast by todays standards, so that expence wasn't needed either.
