Li Ion cells goes from 0 to 60 in under a second. That's not bad as long as it doesn't accelerate into a car!

WOW! I think that he has a better idea of what type of monster he has created. with that size slick in the back on concrete it's hard to imagine the power you would be holding back when attempting a burnout. I wouldn't have tried it. loved the gear and safety precautions they took.

what happened is he drifted to far forward out of their little wet spot and the tire just did its job and stuck like glue. then his death grip on the bars just held the throttle im sure and then came the minivan.

He was talking about how safe the BATTERIES were....:rolleyes:

Isn't that just how it goes when you're trying to show off in front of a couple of friends...:D

I intended to post this that same day but I must not have submitted it. Here's Bill's response to the lid question:
I wasn't wearing a helment, because we did not intend the bike to even move!

We were spinning the tire in soapy water. The tire unexpectantly gripped, (water ran out?) and launched the bike. I couldn't get it shut down as quickly as I would have liked. I had to release the front brake to fully untwist the throttle. I then managed to slow it down to about 20 mph.

The positive message here is that when we crunched the battery pack, NOTHING happened. No smoke. No flames. Not even sparks. Not only are these cells more powerful, they are are the safest possible for automobiles.

Also, there was NO ONE in front of the bike or in the possible trajectory of the bike.
