Resto Cal Beetle photoshoot
Here is a short video of Oli Bradshaws Resto Cal Beetle. We decided to take
some video during the photoshoot and it caught us trying to get the Bug out

but not so great for really low cars on very deep gravel.

Black Current Electric VW Beetle Running on FlightPower Batteries
Brothers Sam and Oliver Young made it into electric drag racing history at
Santa Pod Raceway in the UK with his 1600 pound electric VW bug, "Black
Current." Sam piloted Black Current to a 9.82 @ 132.22 mph run followed by
a 9.51 time at 135.65 mph. This makes the speedy electric bug the "World's
First Street-Bodied Electric Car" to break into the 9's. A significant
historic event for EVs and electric drag racing history. The current
running through Black Current is provided by FlightPower Lithium Polymer®
EVO Ultra Nano batteries which have thicker innerconnects then regular RC
batteries to handle the extra current.!
