Description: Cute little thing, good for zooming around town. Blazing top speeds of up to 60km/hr. Apparently you can actually get 115mpg if you drive at 40km/hr or so, but that kind of sucks. Insurance is expiring in a few days and I haven't really driven it enough this year to justify renewing it. Honestly, the 60km/hr top speed is really a good part of why I don't drive it much, tends to leave me in quite a few places with cars impatiently tailing me. (Not to mention we get as much rain as a rainforest in winter here)

Still, with a vedder-style aero mod, this thing could probably do a much better clip and/or get even better mileage. It really has potential.

It's also too bad I can't "shift" this thing into neutral. Coasting would really help mileage, I imagine.

Current Mods: None

Planned Mods: I'd like to do some aero ecomods on this guy, but I'm not really the super mechanically inclined/trailblaze a path to glory type. This thing has a lot of potential, though.
