More fun drag racing little ol' electric cars!






Yep, I'm the A/V nerd with the video camera and tripod.
Meanwhile - TomEV drives my white car to victory!!!

There was a third heat which I drove in. After that one, both Rich (orange car) and I went wild. We were both able to burn a bit of rubber on that track.

I actually did a high-speed turn powerful enough to throw open my driver-side door and have a water bottle go flying around the parking lot!

Rich did some sort of "power-slide". I'm still trying to see if anyone got that on camera.
