  1. That’s gonna be tough to reach 450 kph. Theoretically, assuming resistive forces on the tires are negligible compared to aerodynamic drag, the car can achieve 451 kph. Take wheel resistance and you’re down of at least 5 kph. And that theoretical high speed is assuming you reach peak power output at 450kph.It will not reach 450kph, I guarantee it. 440kph is more plausible.

  2. He literally lift the wheel with one finger, that was the best part of the vid .. These are damn light weight wheels !

  3. Amazing Tech! Please make some for off road use so I can survive my drive to work in Michigan. 🙂 Much appreciated.
