01.June.2010 - I drive the car already more than one
mounth - more than 600km!
Everything is good enough - the acceleration, the brakes,
especially the range. I drive it more than 55 km - at this
point there is no problem. I open the engine cover only when
others want to see what I have under it.

05.June.2010 - We measured the weight - its 860 kg, on
the front wheels - 440kg, on the rear wheels - 420. Very
good for the car with front wheels drivetrain!

18.August.2010 - After 40 cycles of charging the
batteries are improved. The range is increased with about 10
miles, and now I can go more than 50 miles. Of course with
maximum speed of 50-60 km/h. On a small part of the highway
we make 85-90km/h and then... the highway finished :)

Because the front of the car is not as heavy as it was

Added some pictures.
