It would be awesome if there was an "overboost" button on the steering wheel that gave an extra , say, 50 or 70 foot-lbs of torque for one or two seconds followed by a short refractory period.



I have no idea how these things work, but I would love to see if a tuner could remap the throttle controller and exceed the programmed limits.

Awesome! I used to Autocross in Atlanta all the time. I still have one Saturn from those days. Would be hilarious to give my Leaf a go.

Nice job.

Awesome story! Great photos and from the action shots, I can tell you were having a blast of a time :-)
Some questions if you don't mind:
What's the weight of your wheel?
What's the offset? did you use any spacers??
What brand of tires were you using?
