I thought that was funny too.... I know he meant incredible torque, but got his metaphors mixed up a bit.

that thing looks like it goes from 0 - OMG very quickly.

Wonder how the battery tech is coming and how much range it has.

I bet the acceleration is hand wrenching. Torque monster.

Our hotel room last Friday. Coincidentally, we had the "Prairie Cowboy" room. Giddy-up hon!



If you are ever get the chance, stay at the Occidental Hotel in Buffalo, WY. It's a living & functioning museum. Our room had a 1930's tube radio that was restored and working.

I texted a picture of the room to my daughter. She suggested that we might be haunted at night by the antelope.

A couple days earlier, we got to ride horses to help one of my relations round up some cattle that escaped overnight. Wish we had more time in Montana. I visited the family homestead and met with 5 generations that made Montana their home (some of them are no longer above ground). My great-great grandfather came over from Ireland in the mid-1800's.

Very cool, sounds like a great trip, always good to look at the roots a little. I am afraid however that the striped walls would have given me a siezure

I lost track of how many times I involuntarily said "NUMBNUTS!" while watching this video again.
