Have you noticed that anyone going slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster is a maniac ?

The 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) time of the run was a mere 0.9 seconds.

On the last run of the day, the True Cousins racing team dialed the power back down a bit and decreased tire pressure to 9 PSI to increase traction. The tweaks were successful as the team ran their final sprint with an even faster time of 6.86 seconds. And that was despite the rider briefly looking grip on the throttle due to the vibrations and spending nearly one second at 20% reduced power.

That's phenominal performance. It's the way motoring's going of course and when some boffin somewhere cracks the battery weight size and expense issue, there'll be no looking back, even for old luddites like me.
