We had a 21 mph tailwind today, that could help too

A Charlie Toy fairing would give significantly better aero.


Joe

No doubt but I'm more interested in doing it with stock bodywork at this point.  Lightning did 206 (I think it was) in the mile at Mohave last year but with what I think is Kent's LSRB fairing.  As far as I know, nobody's done 200+ with a stock fairing.

I made some minor aero changes (stock windscreen, moving clip-ons in a bit, stock seat, removed hump, etc.) and had a good weekend:



To the best of my knowledge this is the first street-legal electric vehicle with stock bodywork to exceed 200 mph in the standing start mile.

Congratulations, Frank!  I knew you could do it and I'm sorry I missed it. See you next July.

Thanks Tom!  How were things at BMST for you?  I don't know why, but after seeing you in the registration line we never bumped into each other again.  I hope you had a bunch of passes.

I stuck a video camera on for the one full-power pass I made last Saturday.  Batteries were cool but it was still a decent run.

That is impressive!!! When you think about the technology that is going into the electric motors, batteries and controllers for electric vehicles these day I truly believe that a top dollar deal with state of the art parts  could be a contender for the "First to 500" prize. Think Elon would like to sponsor a car??

That is awesome!  Any idea what your half-mile speed was?  Just curious because half-mile events are the only ones that I have been able to run so far due to my deployment schedule, I hope to make it to Mojave next year though.

Unfortunately I have no idea what the half-mile speed was.  It's pretty run out at about 3/4 mile or so; my guess would be 180-190?

Thanks for the reply, I could see the half mile being pretty high considering the acceleration on an electric motorcycle should be pretty good even with street gearing.
