JohnnyPa (or Johnny Dong) continues to incite insane jealousy in me. He’s just gotten in the new Sony battery for his modified belt-drive electric ELOS.
Some more screensnaps after the break.
Look at how small that pack is:
It’s his red ELOS that has the belt drive.
I want that. I want a belt-driven electric ELOS or belt-driven Ionpod and I want it to be red and I will name it Red Rover. For “Red Rover,” the apocryphal title of a never-made episode of The Prisoner where a Rover goes rogue and kills indiscriminately. Yeah.
I asked Johnny on YouTube:
Does the belt drive ELOS go faster than the hub drive one?
The belt drive is faster than hub drive every much…I just use middle speed.
See? Hub drives might be the future, but I can wait on that. Give me that impressive oomph! of a belt drive.
Here’s Johnny’s video. All of the ELOS material begins at about 12:52 in.
