Re: I just saw a youtube of the TANGO EV
This is my first look at the Tango. I like the concept of small but strong (roll cage). Although a problem with a roll cage in a street-driven vehicle is if you hit your head on it. Racers wear helmets. I guess you could wear a helmet, or pad the Shiite out of the roll bars in the driver area. I don't think I'd take it on the freeways.
So, what about a DIY version? I'd go with less performance, more range, lighter weight. My first thought is how to get it registered. But, if you modify an existing vehicle (especially an older, smog exempt; pre-'76 in California), then you're more likely to get it registered.
Oh yeah, there are 5/8-scale dirt track cars that might be a good start.
