    OOH SWEEhEEhEET...! Y'know, I've never heard of or seen this kit car. It looks IDEAL for an electric motor. Gotta be light enough that the chassis could be picked up by hand. Looks like it will be a rear wheel drive. I don't know what you have planned so far, but I'd really like to discuss this car and your ideas of what you're gonna do with it. Fortunately, since the motor would be in the back, the drivetrain would be minimal. Have you entertained the idea of two smaller electric motors instead of one large one? By doing this, one motor could be cut from power so the other can maintain cruising speed, extending range. There are so many possibilities, and man... I envy you. What of the power source? Lead-acid? Of course would be the easiest way but you'll pay a penalty in range and output. Have you done calcs and scouted for the cheapest possible source of new Li Ion batteries? I wish NanoSafe batteries were on the market and affordable, but they're still being developed and tested. Still, would be nice being able to recharge in 10 minutes and not having to replace them for over 20 years... So much to say about this, but you know that. I haven't updated my EV group recently. Gotta add new developments like the EVO and Volt, and catch up on the Lightning GT's and Tesla's progress. Well, at least the Tesla is followed by the press. The cockpit is really badass on the Sterling. I pound Detroit for having the vision to include such great features in their concepts, yet pump out the same configuration in their production models. It's about time auto makers embraced the future. People are tired of waiting starting to go around them, hence the Tesla, kit cars and mods like Lambo door conversions (will be doing that on my Firebird Convertible this summer). My Email address is Contact me. Oh, and 5 stars of course. Hell, I'd give you 10 if I could.

    That's bad ass, I think the ladies in Canonball Run with Burt Renolds drove one in that movie, and what kind of motor does it have.
