The guy we got the Zenn from has ridden in a Tesla. I'm with you, outrageous. but so is the sticker price. Same with the full sized cars that guys like Tom Hanks are using. Full sized Scion's that can go 300+ miles. But they're $80,000+ and frankly, I'd rather get 6mpg with my truck... Gotta find the right amount of range for the value.

Bob--my wife is dying to know if you've knit a cover for it yet. Though a knit cover would technically be a "cozy" (the Brits will get it)?

Bli'me !! Tea time already Scott ??

I think the car needs a little handle on it to match the cozy.

Default Can't run it on our track!!!

Bob,

I don't think your new electric car will quite fit on our track, although it would hook up with the tires Jack is working on. Hopefully your crew can make it up here on either the 9th or 16th. Have a good day.

-Mitch

<---Doesn't know what a Tea cozy is.

I suppose I could knit a cover for it if I didn't care how bad it looked.

Why do I get this vision of Bob installing a giant steering servo, a DSM system, and standing on top of the building, running laps around cones with this thing? Hmmm..... For those of you who think 1/5 scale is for wusses, buy this from Bob, and come race in the parking lot! Be hard to find marshals for that racing tho...
