This car is my daily work car I drive 15 miles one-way. It was a Jet Electric that I have slightly upgraded. Still Needs lots of work and holds a NEDRA World Record at 13.351 sec. in the MP/G class. Could do better with out the slipping clutch. I would like to thank my Mentors Damon Crockett and Rich Rudman, two good friends who have help start my NEED FOR EV SPEED!!
