  1. I run Hub motors. Crystalyte Crown TC80 and Cromotor. In Phasor frames with
    120v lipo’s. Lyen 24fet. Mid engine is the way too go in my future. Really
    like your work. Keep it up.

  2. Hey Men. I’ve been checking out your site and I might have to get one of
    your 422 Alpha machines. Nice! As far as flat roads go, I noticed you are
    on the east coast and all the roads I cited earlier are on the west coast.
    I don’t know the east coast so well but if you go to Pikes Peak again
    eastern Colorado and western Kansas are full of thousands of miles of flat
    straight rural roads. I grew up in that country and on an early Sunday
    morning many of those roads would not have one car per hour on them and you
    can see it coming from miles away.

    At higher speeds aerodynamic drag becomes the limiting factor. Have you
    considered putting your drive system in a recumbent trike with a slippery
    aerodynamic fairing such as a Sinner Mango or Quest. I bet you could get
    over 100 mph that way if you want to. Just sayin…….

    Keep up the great work. Nice Machines!!!!!!

  3. Cool video. Get some professional motorcycle racing gear in case you have
    the bad fortune of crashing at speed. Since you probably don’t need
    extreme length you might try airports (that don’t have control towers) or
    drag strips or an oval race track – getting permission at these places
    could be tricky – sometimes small airports simply have no one around –
    although they are much more closed now after 2001. Maybe you know someone
    who has an airplane hangered at a small airport. Look up, look out, don’t
    be a hazard. The smoothest longest straightest, flatest road I know of is
    highway 140 in northern Nevada about 30 miles north of Winnemucca. Nevada
    has many roads that would be sufficiently flat for you as you don’t need
    extreme length and Nevada also has the benefit of high altitude so less air
    resistance. The rice fields in Northern California have some paved roads
    that are very flat as does the Imperial Valley in California down on the
    Mexican border. Google Earth is a good tool to use to explore flatness of
    roads by marking a path with the ruler tool along the road you wish to know
    about, saving the path and right click on the saved path go to elevation
    profile – it will show you the flatness of your path precisely. To
    determine the smoothness of the road surface you will have to go there.
    Good Luck. Be Bold. Be Safe. Legally, no advice given here – this is all
    just hypothetical.
