Well Dennis,
It sounds like you have a winning truck and not just on the track! I have to say it is one of the
most professional EV set ups I have seen (of course one of the the others is the CE-V). It is
amazing how many people you meet at events or just on the street that have never seen an EV - let
alone one that belongs in a race. I am sure it will turn heads wherever you go. I cant wait to
see it on the strip and have the clouds from the burnout amaze (and choke) the spectators.

See you at the track
Mario
