RA has a SMART? Way go to green!

That's a neat video. There's another one on youtube that's a Smart stomping a Ferarri in a 1/4 mile run.

You can still get laid from having a Smart car. She'll be one of those hairy armpit, vegan, tree hugger girls that voted for Obama.

Gauge cluster is from a GSXR, not a Busa but I can not get a good look at the motor. I'd much rather leave it on the bike, and add a turbo!!!

Dude, you could not drive that Tango car here in Texas. One gust a wind would blow that shark fin looking thing over.

Clowns have it made. Imagine how cheap the car payment is when you're sharing it with the other 12 clowns riding around in that thing with you? That car was on SPEED, on hot import nights, a few days ago.

Weighs in at around 3000 lbs with around 4" ground clearance. Ninety% of the weight is in batteries. I know you have big winds in Texas but one would be hard pressed to blow this thing over. Google Tango Electrig and watch some of the videos. This is one cool small ride. I never got a chance to drive or ride in one but I did get to sit in the proto. I am 6' 2" and I was comfortable. I did get to see some of the expressions on the faces of the ones who got to take a quick ride. Zero to sixty in four seconds is pretty impressive.

This is from one of the sites:

The Tango isn’t just a box on wheels. With 39” of headroom, I sat comfortably in this tiny marvel – granted I’m only 5’9” but 6-footers should have no problems. With Sparco racing seats, Sparco Lap 5 steering wheel and rocking 13 inch Yokohama racing tires, you and your co-pilot can cruise around looking fresh.

Aside from good looks, the Tango packs impressive performance into its tiny frame. Check out the bullets:

• Acceleration: 0-60 mph in 4 seconds
• Range: 60-80 miles
• Top speed: 150 MPH
• MPG cost: equivalent to 195 mpg
• Charge time: full charge in less than 3 hours

I've seen fully loaded box van trailers blown over. I'm sure it has a low center of gravity, but I still question how stable driving that thing in the wind will be.

My guess is it might have some lateral swaying sort of like driving a small motorhome in wind we get around here. Dunno. Still would be fun to fart around in.

How much will it cost to replace the batteries when they wear out? Thats the big ticket on the current Hybrid vehicles, you need to be saving the money that you are not spending on gas!

If I remember this correctly, one of the guys at Toyota told me it's about $1200 to replace the battery pack on a Prius. So far they haven't had to replace very many.

bear in mind that large vehicles have much more surface area (think sail) for the wind to push against

Man, it seems that no matter what you have fixed anymore, that's not warranty work, is going to cost at least 1200 bucks on new vehicles. The thing that attracts me the most is no fossil fuel consumption, no oil changes or leaks to worry about. No clutch or gear shifting (that sort of takes the fun out of it....love shifting for some reason). Minimal mechanical parts aside from the drive unit. This vehicle (the Tango) has a separate motor at each rear wheel.

Seems to me that in my situation where I would not use it for all my driving needs, the battery array would last for quite some time. Might look sort of odd pulling my service trailer behind my Tango!
