    That's cool, but I doubt there will be many replacing their IAV designed I-3s. That thing probably costs as much as a whole fleet of Elios

    No offense, but that thing has been around for over a year.

    Not to mention the frame mods and other changes one would need to make to handle that much power in the Elio.

    Put it in a racing lawn mower.
    But if you put it in just a regular mower, you could cut an acre in about 15 minutes. :D
    Just watch out for the grooves from the tires after :eek:
