Though these are still very limited, specialized vehicles, the performance that the teams have been able to get from these vehicles is impressive. Some of the vehicles taking part in the competition have tested at over 100 mph (161 kph), although they are limited to 65 mph (105 kph) during the race.

Solar cars are testbeds for aerodynamic efficiency and lightweight construction, as well as for solar cells, batteries, and electric motors. While a commercial solar car isn't coming anytime soon, the engineering developments from these events do help to promote the tramadol overnight cash on delivery improvement of transportaion efficiency.

Why publish a photograph of a solar car race in Australia and imply it is genuine cialis pills current?

It is obvious from the sclerophyllus shrubs and the side of the road the vehicle upon which the car is driving that this is a photograph taken on the Sturt Highway depicting a race from the original series which were held between Darwin and Alice Springs a very long time ago.

I really wish more publicity got out - I didn't even hear about this until well after the fact (and my old team was racing, too!) Anyway, I'm sure MI's site has some snazzy photos of their new car, it'd be worth the effort to get some of their information posted! Granted, I also need to tout the awesome efforts of a ~500 student liberal arts college competing with MI; Principia College in Elsah, IL has turned the world of solar "raycing" upside down with its lack of an engineering department!
