We're not a big believer of hub motors for our Zero Emission Hydrogen Boot pick up Truck. We're thinking about an electric motor/differential/ axle unit. We think a race range at The Baja 1000 can be 150 miles and Hydrogen Re-fueling can be done anywhere from a system we're also developing that can be stationary or portable and easily waiting in place along the entire course. We see re-fueling times being same as liquid fuel. We see Baja 1000 range at 25% of road range for our Boot Pick-Up 150 vs 600 miles. We think 14,000 GVWR BEV pickups will have similar ratios 40 race/160 road but will never re-fuel/recharge as quickly as Hydrogen EV's will. We're also developing a 4DR Zero Emission Hydrogen Boot that will have a 1200 mile road range. Our goal remains to run the Baja 1000 in 2022 with our Zero Emission Hydrogen Boot Pick up. With a 150 mile race range we see a speed similar to our Class 2 ICE 2020 Boot. We see our EVO'd 2021 Class 2 ICE Boot being mid Class one times. Man plans and the God's laugh but these are our thoughts and goals.Way faster than their pace should be? All that suspension and being passed in a straight up drag race by a class 11? They thought they could do at least 3/4 of the race on range and they barely made it 1/8 of the race before having a 2hr recharge. I didn’t want to talk crap before the race and not trying to talk crap now, sounds like 40 San Felipe miles with no hub motor failure is a big plus, however not achieving the actual goal. To me it just shows EV tech is still a LONG way off for our form of racing and I’m not convinced our whole world can operate on zero emission by 2035.
Congrats to Kyle. Great impressive effort!
