Showing off at Earth Day

Friday, April 29th, 2011

At the Qualcomm Earth Day celebration, I was able to show off my car – alongside 2 Teslas, a Leaf, a Volt, a plug-in Prius, and a Kewet.  Got a LOT of interest in the car – I had printed out 30 handouts, and quickly ran out. I should have printed at least 100!

New motor has finally arrived!

Well, it took a while, but the motor has finally arrived. Spent 2 weeks in US Customs, and another 3.5 days for delivery here, but it is sitting in my garage and smirking at me.
Stats: 11.5″ diameter, 11″ length, 40mm shaft diameter.

New motor from Shengen Motors.
