Nice Article on My EV Metro
 
Hey Guys,

There was an article on me in a local magazine.

A digital version of the article can be found at:
JSOnline

It's a four-page article. Make sure the viewer is set in "double-page" view for the title of the story to make sense!

The article starts on page 26.

Ben, why is the back of the car riding so high? Are there batteries missing from the back, or something? The aero would get a lot better if it was closer to "level".

I love your direct approach in telling your reasons for building an EV.

good job
I assume you will be at the mrea fair? Giving a seminar?

I had just added a couple more batteries in the front, but haven't changed the front suspension yet. It shifted the weight balance forward.

I don't think that I drive fast enough to worry about aero... :rolleyes:

Plus, it looks like I'm driving downhill, so that must be good for fuel economy!

Very nicely written!!! Thanks for posting it Ben! And see you Friday!

yeah, I'll be at the MREA.

Paul is referring to this weekend - the Mother Earth Fair in Washington State.

I'll be presenting on electric motorcycles at both fairs.
