HOLY SHIZ.....

That actually does sound like a jet!

I think I got my Buick up tp 100 on accident not paying attention. Actually passed a cop and he didn’t stop me.

A lot of diy conversions just put fork lift motors onto the input shaft of a manual tranny and ride around in 2nd all day.

No reason you couldn't use a larger motor and keep shifting up for more speed... Just means less range.

Could you please elaborate on that some?
I know engines but not tranny.

So I’m a little confused.

Still slower than gasoline cars.

Pretty sure that is doctored sound. 200 MPH is fast but it just sounds suspiciously juiced up for added effect.

Have you ever heard a forklift truck? Now imagine one with 600hp...
The sound is not doctored.

better Question... has anyone ever driven a powerful forklift?

I have... the pick up is impressive, and I've never driven an electric car... but I've seen them take off!

I couldn't imagine an "800" HP vet's power...

It IS a Jet on wheels!

Instant torque. It's gonna shift...

I can't wait to see these in drag races.

Oh... and this is just a tesla.... not the GXE vet....

And I have seen one of these take off... its bloody fast

Yes. I've also heard an electric car going 60 and I don't think 3 times the speed is going to add up to 50 times the sound. An electric car doing 60 does not sound anything like a forklift doing 5.
