It was quickly fairly obvious that the ideal shape for one of these things is where the shape doesn't protrude past the wheels. After about 40-something generations and some fiddling with the settings, one finally popped up. A version of this one is still top dog at gen112.

I'm also noticing a huge improvement in car performance when lowering the mutation size in particular.
