    The first battery-powered Factory Five 818 is now driving under it's own power and is definitely worth a look, and maybe even consideration as a possible buy/build. Even lacking body panels, it won the Best innovation Design award at the Factory Five Cruise-In last weekend. EV West took it to the track a couple weekends ago and made a cool video featuring it being tossed through turns. I've written up a piece on the car and how it signals a possible shift in kit cars for AutoblogGreen that has the video and more pictures.

    (Mods: I was going to put this in the EV Conversion area but it's not really a conversion in the traditional sense. Of course, feel free to move it there if you are so inclined)

    Looks sweet!

    Someday I hope to have an electric track toy. :)
