    Ron77, that was very interesting.

    I have a neighbor with one.

    It is wicked fast!

    Launch and go.

    I don't care how fast it is, it's still an electrical car with no soul.

    Just imagine the Daytona 500 with electric cars going "hmmmm" around the track. Real exciting. As will be the 2 or 3 hour-long re-charging breaks. Make it a bunch easier on the pit crews. They can take their time changing tires and cleaning the windshield.

    That should fit in well with CRAPCAR's plan for the future.

    From what I keep reading and hearing I don't know if they have much of a future.
