LOL. I remember reading stories about that thing, how the direct short solenoid stuck on at the drag strip in that thing and it was burning rubber and pulling wheelies at the same time! entertaining stuff. I had quite an interest in the NEDRA before it was "cool" to go electric. One of my best friends drives one of those Teslas daily, and that are not all they are chalked up to be. What you have to figure, is the miles per hour. Meaning, how many miles can you drive per hour of charging. He can't even make his commute off a standard 15A 110V socket charging the car over night. Luckily, he has 440V available at work, so he is able to charge enough during the day to get home. We aren't there yet, but getting closer all the time.
