The only maintenance was the remote monitoring system which is wireless and has failed to monitor the system a few for various reasons. For really high speeds tires are a big issue. I think the fastest I have been is about 115 and that car had more power but the suspension and aero was not up to more speed. It was a 1964Buick Wildcat with a 401 Nailhead and 10.5 to 1 compression.

So you generated 10,000 kw extra after your own use? And you are right you can't sell your credits so that is a major advantage. I am just happy to essentially have no bill and displace the ton and a half of coal it would have taken to generate my power. Also it got cloudy here and I didn't quite get my 22 just 21.2 so it was close.

One more day, Joe...one more day (or stay up past midnight!)

Sorry about the empty one. I am looking for about22 kw or maybe better today. The air is clear and humidity and temp low so odds are good. Just read somewhere about some group that is altering the surface finish of solar panels to reject Infra Red and so reduce the heating of Solar panels. ambient temps seem to effect strongly solar panel output.

Yeah would not have known about these except for a line or two in Hot Rod mag. Don't forget there is also the El Mirage dry lake runs in Cal. and of course the big one Bonneville in Utah. SCTA I think runs both of those. Bonneville is hard to get into unless you are known. There may be one in Maine as well. 04 TL will do 160? That is fast. Only been that fast on the French bullet trains. with some aero mods who knows. You say you get back 10 as an owner of your system? 10 what? As an leaser I get service and repair for 10 years. My only regret is that it was not a bigger system but it pretty much filled the best roof exposure. .

The Texas Mile is run at some straight roadway in Beeville, TX which is in south Texas. There is a meet in late October info@texasmile.net These guys sound like fun.

the Ohio Mile is run on an airport runway in Wilmington, Ohio. The sanctioning body is the East Coast Timing Association. The next meet is scheduled for September. Check out ECTA for info.

Also heard that Elon Musk is on the board of SolarCity that is the company I went with. They are doing battery storage at some sites in Cal with battery packs from Tesla that are no longer up to auto discharge/charge rates of current. Batteries are the limiting factor. some people have theorized using plug ins for emerg. storage that the car could run the house. I have seen some systems that you can get for a Prius to do just that. E power at 3kw for your house. I will find out about the Ohio mile. I need to know for myself too. who knows I might see you there!

In 2010 I rented a bunch of Zipcars back when they were featuring hybrids and the prius ,insights and Altima I drove. the Nissan Altima was a really great car but did not get as good mileage as the prius or insight but it was really fun to drive and did not feel like it was compromised like the insight and to a much lesser degree the prius. Last week I got a nice ride in a Volt which was also pretty quick. Seemed to have really good acceleration even when loaded. It would be a better car if it did not need premium gas and held five passengers. think a Impala with the Volt drive train and running on mostly plug in and occasionally on gas. I don't understand why more people don't get solar panels. I wanted to do for years. My only regret is that the system is not bigger so I could use less nat. gas. we are slowly making the house tighter and replacing less efficient appliances with better ones, more insulation, gap filling, LED lamps etc.
