44km/h as tested with Hot wheels radar gun, with timing advanced. Does about 39 km/h with neutral timing.
|Acceleration||Real Good! It will wheelie easy.|

Need to wind back the current limit to the motor to get some range back. I love the wheelies too much though
|Seating Capacity||1+1. I have doubled on it.|

Its a bit heavy. I should have stuck with the round tubing that I used on Mk1, that was lighter and stiffer. But this was easier to build.

|If you really like this thing I could be persuaded to sell it to finance the next project. It really does go pretty good. You can hold on the front brake and do stand up (feet up) burnouts, which really surprises people!|
