is even more amazing when you consider that:
1. In the same time trial, an electric motorcycle equipped
with 700 pounds of batteries reached only 71 mph.
With only twenty pounds of batteries, a 65 pound Machine
X ran for two hours on 1/2 charge (meaning we could have
run the event with only 5 pounds of batteries).
Our energy consumption cost per run was $0.10, with a
total electricity cost during the duration of the event
of $1.00 +/- (not counting the gas usage for the rental
van to and from Bonneville, and the 1000W Honda generator
that consumed 4 oz. of gasoline powering soldering guns
in our pit).
4. That Machine X was allowed entry into the Bonneville
Speed Trials in the first place - and have been invited
next record establishing event in the 1000 Watt category
will be a closed course speed demonstration at California
Speedway where we expect to achieve a benchmark speed
of 70 - 80 mph in the flying mile.
X IS NO LONGER IN PRODUCTION
