    Thanks for posting that! We are working hard to get the Evora ready for spring, and just got it on the dyno last night. It put down a whopping 440whp and proceeded to max out our dyno at lower speeds (as expected!)

    Here's a link to a YouTube video of the dyno testing we did yesterday:

    I know there was some discussion on the other forum about the batteries. As I recall (correct me if I'm wrong), you had opted for the volt batteries mostly because they fit the best and were the most cost effective. Did you consider using the modules from a disassembled Model S pack? I don't know the dimensions vs what the available space is, but I'm curious.
