Depends on implementation. I'm assuming client side scripts won't need
transferring sim to sim on teleports, so scripts such as these that
don't need to be active on the sim seem like good candidates to me.

If anything I'd have thought the data flow with the vehicle scripts
would be more of an issue as that'd be constant messaging between the
client and server parts. It would need careful testing to make sure that
moving the maths client side was more efficient. Even without my crazy
ideas on doing torque based acceleration curves, it's likely that people
will overdo messaging (if it's a feature) with stuff like client hud
speedos for vehicles..
