Authoritive arguments Trojan?, mate I'm not making an argument at all; I'm just stating simple facts.
The technology does not exist right now at a sensible price, that’s what I'm saying.
Is that not obvious to you?
READ WHAT I HAVE WRITTEN, before you start twisting peoples statements against them & accusing people.
I'm not saying it can't be done, read what I said.
I'm not saying I'm an Authority on the subject of electronics or electrical engineering, read what I said.
And I'm not abusing you as you are abusing me or making snide remarks as you are suggesting.

Again this will likely end up being deleted to clean up the abusive mess you create on this Forum.

Am I being a smart arse Trojan, no I’m not, its you who is being the pig headed know it all that know one should dare question.

The X1 car is still $150,000.00 USD for something which is very basic.
Still does not fall into our $30,000.00 price limit does it?
And like I stated earlier I don’t doubt we will have these cars in the future at reasonable prices.
But Trojan, not right now.
You don’t have to be a world authority like you obviously are to see the simple facts.

Chill out for F*#ks sake, the worlds not out to get you!

:roll:

Here's a dictionary:

snide: expressive of contempt

disparaging: Tending or intending to belittle; expressive of low opinion.

I then wrote a point by point rebuttal to your accusations but came to realise what's the point... So I'll sum up with:

I challenge you Tony to show where you UNIQUELY CONTRIBUTED IN A POSITIVE WAY to the discussion??????

OK, I've just been across the mountain and back, they didn't name it Mt Glorious for nothin' - the one they were going to include in a Targa QLD but the locals poo-poo'd it Image (no not the Mohamed thing :roll:) and I feel chilled.

Electric Vehicles have been a pet project of mine for years, since my electronics mentor inspired me.
None the less(!) I shouldn't have fired up as I did and am truly sorry for being a hot head.


Now, I've calmly done some back of the envelope calcs and currently I get, and I sure could be wrong, that a buggy could be built that meets the weight limit and can outrun a busa in a straight line for 11 minutes - then stop dead ;)
No good for the Finkle but it could do Northam/Harvey/Camel & Piranha Parks/TORC in their current format?

Trojan,

my thoughts exactly. I look at the action most buggies do around here and it's all stadium, short track stuff.

As for your comments about the electric motor flogging a Hayabusa, well I'd never believed you except that I saw an electric drage bike about ten years ago which did something l;ike an 8 second run with old lead-acid batteries!

Let's start and electric/alternative powered buggy section on the forum and spread the love around.

Okay, OKAY!!! I know some of you can't live without a blaring exhaust emanating four stroke noises for all to hear.

So hears (here's ?) the solution. Mount these to your electric buggy and play your favorite bike engine noise at full throttle....

Biggans, looks like we are back on track to the original subject.

I received an email from the Editor of Dirt Comp a couple of weeks ago.
Damned if I can remember what he said, (I was in fishing fever at the time) other than I think the article is in the next issue.

I will email him again as I was supposed to receive a proof of the article before it is published.

First time I saw it was in a 4x4 shop, (opposite lock).
It is supposed to be available in most of the better newsagents, but again, I haven't seen it.

My net's been down for three days, just look at all the fun I missed out on! Trojan's been making up for lost time, and I didn't even get the chace to rile him up a bit dammit! :D

Just ask your local newsagent Reg.. if they dont stock it on shelf they will order it in for you. I used to have to do the same for the Kart Mags each month. Its a top read, and well worth the few bucks.

Tony is it possible to send me a copy of this magazine ?
I really would like to have a copy if you can find a way to send it over
As for the electric buggy have a look to this video from France
It is from Adros trophy and there are two electric buggys competing with the 600cc Honda CBR buggys
One of them it is driven by a girl with good results
