Ok, I admit I am new at this, and ask some dumb questions. So as I stumble upon what is common knowledge to most EVers with history, I feel a little stupid, like now.
I see not only has this been done, but even the famous White Zombie used A123 Cells for a short stint. These pics are courteousy of the Plasmaboy Racing site. Thanks John for such an informative site, man I was up too late reading it last night!
This is exactly what I was asking about, if anyone had done this, etc. Well, at least I know it's possible now!
