I'd roll like that when the time comes. They just need to sort out the range now.....

The enviromentalists do seem to forget how the electricity is made that powers the car and the processes involved in making and disposing of the batteries though :)

I agree he is very cocky and overbearing. His 1200 is quick, 11.5 Qtr mile is blazing fast.

Ironic that his electric car needs to be plugged in to be charged, and that electricty probably comes from a coal fired Power Plant!!

And annoying that at the end he says "and we did all this without producing ANY pollution!".

Yeah, that electricity just appears by magic at the outlet...

But I really do want an electric 1200 some day. I only drive 10 miles a day for work, so it would be perfect for me. And with those lightweight batteries he has... :twisted:

that is pretty cool and the power does come from a coal fired electrical plant but also from hydro electricity from Bonneville Dam

If I ever catch that guy I will try to get him on here lol, he is in the portland metro area by the looks of it

Cool vid!

These old 1200s seem ideal for this setup because of their light weight and RWD layout.

I wouldn't mind having one either :)


Also, we had a post about this a while back:

I agree -- and I hate all of the decals that he's got all over that Datsun. It would have a little more, (read: marginal), of a "coolativity factor" if it looked stock - instead of being a rolling billboard. The car is quick and his engineering is intriguing, but the car looks absurd and I hate the fact that he did it to a vintage Datsun. The car is ruined.

Well, the sponsors who give you the money and products to race with like it when you put their logo on the car. :wink:

I'm familiar with the concept of corporate sponsorship. I was referring to how the car looks, in general, on the street.

Very cool, but yeah, this dude is dreaming if he thinks he's still pollution free. :lol:

Furthermore, look at all that un-eco-friendly tire smoke! :lol:

Understood. But don't let the video fool you. I'd bet this thing sees ZERO street time.

Last time I checked his website he said the car had an effective range of 4-5 miles if driven very easy. :wink:

At the track it has to be charged after every pass.

I met the guys at a Datsun show, and they were very friendly in person, and even answered all my questions I'm sure they've heard 100 times... even though I was wearing a shirt with a big ol' Mitsubishi logo on it. I'm gonna guess the camera changes people a bit, hammin' it up for the camera!!
