How fast were the record setting times?

Also what range does the coupe have city/highway? Also what does the coupe weigh? Curious as to the performance possibilities.

Burnouts with batteries are cool.

Congratulations!

As a Type 65 Kit Owner (with little progress, unfortuantely) and long-time (15 years+) hydrogen fuel cell EV researcher at Los Alamos National Laboratory (retired 01/08 to join a clean energy consulting company and start the NM office), I am gratified by your accomplishments. Ain't max torque at zero rpm wonderful??

On-line conversion calculator using an 8.128 1/8 mile E.T. translates to a 12.76 (not bad!). About the same as the 67 Mustang in my avitar does at sea level....

First I cheated (the photo). I set the record with Hoosers road track slicks (7.91 second 1/8 mile). I have recently replace the battery pack and will be going to full wrinkle wall drag slicks (Nov 7) for ArmDrop live at Baraona Drags, because I was doing nothing but spinning off the line with the Hoosers, which is why the recent record say 8.1. Best time in 1/8 (only tracks we have here) with Hoosers - 7.801 with old battery pack. Measured 0-60 time 3.4 seconds at an estimated 50% power. I still have not taken the car to 100%, but I'm hoping to next week with the better tires.
Range of car is like 60 miles. Hopefully I'll put some updates in next weekend :)

Oh and we (the cars and myself) will be in Revenge of the Electric Car (sequel to Who Killed the Electric Car).
