    End of the V-8

    If this happens then I am glad that I won't be here to see it. I am sure that the price will be very high and the distance you can drive one of these won't be very far. I hope they include a long extension cord as you can't just pull off the road every 150 miles and spend 6/8 hours recharging the battery. I am putting the link above the video for those who can't see the video embedded.

    This doesn't tell much about the range or anything else but it shows that everything is going to go the electric route.

    Ron,

    Thank you for including the link for those of us with issues.

    Jim,

    I will do that until you find the fix for your issues and maybe the others who ember videos will do the same.

    This one is mostly for Silver. Don't you love the roar of those vacuum cleaners as they go down the track. Now they can come back, recharge and drive home.

    Can you imagine the Hot Rod magazine of the future?

    No more will they be covering the latest heads, cams, compression ratios, and such.

    No, they will be telling you how to add more windings to your electric motor so you get more torque. And how you can recharge your batteries in 1/2 the time.

    Kind of sad for us old farts.

    Well California has so many power shortages that you may have to take a number to tell you which day you can recharge your car for the next 100/200 miles of driving.

    Are the side pipes really needed on this car?

    Sure they need them Ron. They are bullshit pipes.

    The Cobra in the drag race sounded like my old "slot car" when I was a kid!

    I don't even turn up the sound. I don't want to hear it.

    The point is actually to have a fully charged car - so that you can feed it back into the grid when needed...
    I asked Walter Roehrl: How can this be 700 hp on dirt road, I can't even keep my Fiat Uno with 45 hp going straight? W: It's all about the tires. - (right...).
