Only appropriate you would haul an electric speeder in a Prius. :-)

This past Friday I did an endurance test. The speeder ran for two hours at full speed on the 2% grade loop at the GGLS. Yes, I sat on it on full throttle for 2 hours straight.
Average speed was 6 mph, distance was 12 miles, logged by my GPS.

Also, I would like to mention that I am considering taking bitcoins as a form of payment to purchase this.

After doing more research of what is out there in the market, I am going to lower the price to my break even point.
1200$
Any lower and I will just keep it for myself.

I too have a Prius and would be interested except I just bought a live steam loco (INVICTA) with tender and two riding cars to carry in my Prius. They fit, test ran the engine on coal at our track in Minden, NV. Don't like coal. I'm in the process of converting it to propane. Expect to have it ready for the Spring Meet at SVLSRM.

Bring your electric if you still have it and we can run together.

December will be making the drive to Florida. If I still have it and your track is along the way, would be happy to run it there.

Ah, I was there already with this Speeder running it at your last open house. Very nice large track.
