"CHARGE" on Netflix

not sure if this has been mentioned...

I'm sure everyone here has seen "Faster" and "Fastest" already, But there's a Documentary on NETFLIX streaming called "Charge".

It's about the emergence of the Isle of Mann TT ZERO race. follows the Motoczyz team and talks about the new tech. really good flick.

Watched it a couple of days ago. Agni is a character who makes it worth the watch. Don't expect exciting racing scenes, but I enjoyed the history and seeing the individuals in this small community.

you try and race the TT/ MotoGP/ Baja/ Dakar/ any other race that pays your way through life....you may have a bit of an ego too. Leave the peni out of this.

I'll assume he was talking about the owners of the companies, since that's where the focus is (not on the riders).

all of them ride.

There comes a sense of.....well.....how can I put this......competitiveness, so to speak.

If you are developing stuff (and riding) right on the edge, you will be the same way. I think it is natural and expected. You may not be that way with your friends, but to an outsider, competitor, etc., it happens. So what.

I love how people compare egos/cars/trucks/bikes/houses with size.....it is about as stupid as it gets.

For those who missed it, guess what bike won the Pikes Peak hillclimb this year? Pikes Peak is now 100% asphalt from bottom to top. Winner takes all, no restrictions on what you can or can't race. Gas, alcohol, turbo, supercharged, etc...don't matter one bit. It's unlimited. And the overall winner is....

Pretty cool stuff happening in the electric world. Drive a Chevy volt and tell me you don't see the end of pure gas only bikes and cars in the very near future....

5th overall - an electric powered car. Tell me that ain't some wierd Tron sounds right there.

Someone writes....his car is awesome in GT6 0-60 in 2 seconds top speed with default aero setting 171 mph and 186 mph with lowest aero settings.
It's very tricky to drive though.

Sooo I guess sarcasm is a bit hard to detect in text.
No, I wasn't comparing this mans personality to the physical world size of my . I was saying he's a really humble dude for how awesome of an engineer he is compared to the other guys who seemed more like business men than enthusiasts.
