I can see conversions like this taking place into normal cars in the future. In fact rather like a down to earth version of "Back To The Future 2" - classic cars given a new lease of life. No not flying! But super fast electric conversions. How about Tesla Ludicrous mode in a mk1 5? It would be untouchable by anything with wheels.

STOP PRESS, 150kg seat on wheels is a little under a second quicker to 63mph than a car with an inside and radio and seats and crash protection and a fuel tank and range and gears and road legal and made in (comparatively) large numbers. We are all surprised, you should all be surprised, and amazed, much wow.
Notwithstanding the implied surprise that something light and 4wd and torquey is fast, it is cool.
Shout, shout. Let it all out. MX5's is what we're all about.
wannabe: I didn't watch it live but saw some of the highlights - one crash saw a Lotus Elite(?) crashed into and the front end ripped off on the tyre wall, with a 250GTO also smashed up IIRC! Expensive hobby... lol

atlex: After 20 years (with me, but it's 30+ years o) my Teng Socket Set has at last suffered a cracked socket, 14mm, after I used it with an impact wrench - Out of some sense of brand loyalty I've ordered a replacement socket... and yes I have some impact ones.
