...they will be losing money from gas taxes that EVs won't be paying.

I dare say they're a bit ahead of the curve anticipating EV volume. Oh well, get those revenues started. Also, the tolls were only temporary until the initial cost of the original construction was recovered. Oops. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the toll roads are operated by a private entity? I'm sure the govt. gets their cut. I know that Kansas is run by private business. They even have ads at the exit booths!!!

Well, would you expect anything less? He also addressed the point of temporary tolls and basically said they are never going away.

The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority is a state agency as far as I know.

Since Biden said "Americans would need F-15’s or nuclear weapons to take on the Government," Elon Musk unveils new Tesla F-15...



The all-electric fighter jet will be in production by the fall and is available for preorder now.

"We've revolutionized the electric car, and now, we're taking to the skies," Musk said at the official unveiling of the product held at the new Tesla factory in Texas. "Behold, I give you the power of flight!" Workers pulled a canvas sheet off the F-15 and revealed the sleek, next-generation fighter aircraft to the press gathered on the all-new Tesla runway.

Musk also confirmed the F-15 can park itself, and you can even summon it with the push of a button on your key fob: handy for those trips to the grocery store or when you're trying to overthrow the government and need to make a quick getaway. "Don't leave home or attempt to topple a tyrannical government without it!"

I saw a time card on fakebook. Hansens new straight off the showroom floor Tesla ran a 9.37 at 150.9 mph.

I don't know if this link will work or not.



I used to be a people person, but people ruined that.

That's some killer traction control as far as I'm concerned. IF my 4wd truck had enough power to go that fast it would probably just smoke all 4 BIG tires.

they aren't. But we don't worry about pesky rules.

Since it's legal or not enforced in EV's, I don't see why we can't start installing it on dragsters now.
