Hehe! Image
I too have been done for speeding in my EV! Image
It's ironic because I never normally speed intentionally, but this was a rare occasion that I was happily coasting along down the hill using no power and watching my speed climb!

Brett let me have a go of his DeLorean yesterday, my first ever EV drive. The EVO motor has a sweet whine at low RPM & the acceleration was more than adequate for an old fart like me although Sutho, I suspect, has plans for more. And the best part? Any speeding fines go to his address!

PS: I'm in love with negative amperes (regen).

I saw the Delorean at Newcastle. Beautiful conversion. It would be great to get it down to our display in Sydney next month.

"you think Electric cars are slow?"
"thats not what my speeding ticket says"

Brett is a very amiable guy Mark flick him an email & see what comes of it. He will be in the USA from 17th to the end of this month, maybe get in early before he goes?
