Good God, i'm drooling...does Phil Knox happen to have a Website? I'd love to know some of the Specs on these mods-especially that Hypercar! That critter's just BEGGING for an EV twin, with a 5HP continuous motor and a few banks of parallel Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries for two strings of 60 Volts or so...

Phil doesn't have a dedicated site (unless he snuck one in since last time I checked with him). But if you've got questions, just ask - his EM username is "aerohead".

Phil needs to update the T100. I chatted with him last fall and he said he was planning on a trailer design. Today I spotted him on I-35 going south from Gainesville, TX with his newly designed trailer. It looks sweeet

Also,a good,from the side photo of the p-up taken with a telephoto lense would be helpful.If not that,maybe we can scare up an image to work with.
Your 'drop' is going to help you.You've cut both frontal area and improved the fineness ratio with one stone.
