I've been promoting/linking to the White Zombie on FF forums everytime it seemed appropriate to the topic. John "Plasmaboy" Wayland is local to me so he gets coverage here in the newpaper every now and then. Nice to see that somebody else in the forums is aware. Did you look at the drag racing videos?
Now, if we can just get an electric Focus going for crap sake. If there already is one, I haven't found it. (Maybe too much torque-steer in a FWD with that much power).

that is pretty crazy too bad they dont sell them. But, I think you'll pick up alot more girls in the Tesla roadster. Which is alittle bit more practical.

Still think even the tesla roadster isnt practical...well Tesla is in the works of building a sedan version to compete with cars like the bmw 5 series, so expect an electric sedan about the size of that. And itll be priced between 55-75k. SWEET. Honestly, I hope Tesla grows and grows, they already have a huge waiting list for the roadster and having others finacial support the company, as well as selling technology to other companys. Will Tesla bring the new age of a car? Prob not, will prob just be the next hybrid, but a Tesla roadster sure as hell looks alot better then a prius.

electric motors are the most amazing motors if you look at the numbers.

crazy linear torque curves and massive hp depending on the amperage and voltages you put through it. they really are amazing. i wish we had crazy batteries that would allow the practical use of electirc cars.

mhmmmmmm sexy.

My first car was a 1972 Datsun 1200. Fadded yellow and rusty by time I got it in 1977. Still remember my uncle stopping over on his Harly and noticing that his engine had more cc's then my Datsun.
