The first TTXGP at the Isle of Man kicks off on the 12 of June and I can’t wait! This has the potential to be a über interesting kick in the pants for the two-wheeled alternative energy vehicles, not to mention the alternative energy industry in general. (more…)

Betty at the LakeBetty is back together! After several months all of that busted up plastic is repaired and painted.

Okay, no big deal. I’ll just swap the filters back to how they were before. But now my interest has been piqued; how good is my fuel mixture, how does this system work, and most importantly, how can I hot rod this system?

So I went on SVR and found someone willing to part with a set of carburetors for super-cheep. More to come…
