Well the Dakar is over and now we start watching it. We always record the show and then watch a smuch or as little as we like.. Early days for us but have been impressed by the Audi electric cars but the suspension appears to be a bit weak. Also the Hybrid Hino, what a truck. 800hp electric engines and 200hp diesel. Claimed 0 - 100 kph in 2 seconds, WOW.

Could this initiate Comet, Ipec et al mark ll? ;)

Pulling 800 hp should have some good acceleration, impressive figures for sure

Your better to die trying than live on your knees begging

When they mentioned the figures Dee looked at me in disbelief too. Not sure if others watched the race but those Audi electric hybrids sound like giant size slot cars or model electric cars. They have a real high pitched squeal as they accelerate and go like scolded cats.
