Without correcting for drag -- what is the resulting air resistance on said object traveling at a given speed for a given altitude -- a dyno should give more favorable numbers. Aerodynamics play a large factor in vehicle range, gas or electric.

“This company is producing the car that Elon Musk wishes he were building,” Kroll said in a separate interview with Bloomberg Television. “It is great to produce a $45,000, a $100,000 car or a $250,000 car. But for the masses? A $15,000 car that can get them to stop using gas. That’s creative."

SOLO was a good trade today.

They park it on the sidewalk in front of the deli they own for catering runs and have ordered a second because they kept fighting over it.

Up to $6.50 now from around $1.40. Crazy.

I bought at 1.73. Then in my infinite wisdom sold at 1.97 with more than enough lunch money for a week.
