    By the time he is ready for the White Zombie, it'll still beat him. The WZ team is busy working on breaking into the 9's. I watched them pull a 10.2 a couple of weeks ago, and they've still got plenty of stuff to tweak and tune.

    It's a one-off but still cool that someone can produce his own EV rocket ship.

    If he would stop burning out for the first 100 feet off the line he'd have better acceleration. Maybe the next evolution of his BMW will have launch control to lessen the wheel spin.

    who knew that the E30 "Green Machine" would spawn Rimac Automobilie. Tesla Motors has inspired a new group Nikola Teslas across the world.
