    • Try 177MPH. The design is capable of just shy of 200MPH. The record run -set at Virgina Motorsports – had Larry McBride saying the bike peaked acceleration about 300′ from the end of run. I have informed Shawn Lawless if the motor is reworked, that he could get a significant “kick” as the motor reaches peak RPM. (DC motor field weakening). So, 197 or 198 is very likely.

      Remember, too, it is much “easier” (from a torque/Hp perspective) to take a long time to get up to speed than to accel in a limited time

  1. oh David you’re such a link slut. LOL! But yeah, they said they’d screwed too many amps on via elmoto.net:
    “We got a little too aggressive with the amperage. There is a very fine line between being “on the tire” and “up in smoke”. This run was the latter. It made for a cool video though.”
