#13 Tesla Model S videos: Bad Luck
On a weekend trip to Bergen, I got a battery fault and couldn't drive the
Millennium Falcon. First Tesla provided me with a Volvo V40 loaner car. And
then they lend me a 60 kWh Model S and told me I could drive as much as I
During the ten days I had the loaner car, I put down 4800 km/3000 miles on
it, while doing tasks for Nimber (Easybring).

Tango v Tesla @ Infineon Nov 30th
On Nov 30th, the fastest production electric vehicles in the U.S. went
head-to-head. While their first meeting had a number of issues, most
notably the underfilled Tango battery pack, and the Tesla's non-upgraded
drivetrain, the 1/4 mile time is quite close and indicative of races to
In this race, the Tango got 92.15mph in 14.480 seconds, beating its 14.7
"dial" handicap and thus losing the competition; the Tesla got 101.23mph in
14.666 seconds, slower than its 14.5 "dial" handicap and allowing it to
proceed to the next round. (Two rounds later, the Tango's driver got
behind the wheel of the Tesla and also beat its "dial" handicap... and thus
Epilogue: the cars compete in different voltage classes, and thus both were
able to set NEDRA records for fastest production electric vehicle that day.

for production electric vehicle was the GM EV-1, at 16.26 seconds and

KillaCycle New Record 7.86 @ 169 MPH Bandimere Speedway NEDRA event
The KillaCycle has done it again. We broke the _overall_ NEDRA record for
electric's in the 1/4 mile. The KillaCycle is the very fastest and quickest
EV of any sort in the 1/4 mile.
It was a beautiful day at Bandimere Speedway and, as always, the track
conditions were perfect.
The A123Systems battery propelled us into the recordbooks once again.
A123Systems raced ahead of the pack on the NASDAQ on Thursday, and their
batteries put us _farther_ ahead of the pack today.
I believe we posted the lowest ET (best time) for any vehicle at the track
today at Bandimere. There was a very well-attended bracket race going on,
and I think the bext ET of any of these powerful- purpose-built interal
combustion vehciles was in the low 8's.
Notice Eva Hakansson in the left lane on her ElectroCat. While the
KillaCycle was busy setting the "unlimited" drag bike NEDRA record, Eva was
busy setting the 48 volt division street-legal NEDRA record.
