Right, I guess that's what I really meant, is that they added ADDITIONAL batteries, but yes it is still very impressive.

seems like dam near a minute of that video was unnecessary lol

anyone else think it looks camaro like with the front end like that?

cool nonetheless
14.9 at 71 mph means he still has a killer launch, just suffering from top end power. i want to see the 60 foot and 1/8th times and stuff lol

Legality

The issue of legality for these cars depends on where you live. Here in Florida where it's legal to drive with no doors or hood this car would not be an issue. It is certainly safer than most of the dune buggies and go carts you occasionally see on the highway. This is probably why so many shops move to Florida where they can do almost anything with a car and don't have to worry about emissions and government regulation.

I would think if you retain the same glass, and belts your not violating anything. you just changed the angle of the windshield and the rear deck. Whats the big deal? As long as one dosn't go and mess with the suspension/Bumpers I think you would be ok.
