.: 400 miles on electric Corvette conversion

   First test drive for finding the range on a single charge.

  • While testing the range of my battery pack, I happened upon a sheriff with a speed gun. I knew my speedo was off, so I stopped and asked if he would put the gun on me. He was more than happy and very interested in the car. My speedo is 20% off - when it said 50 when my actual speed was 60.
  • I got 25 miles on the car and still had some reserve, so I think I'm good for 35+ miles
