Team Farfle's new race bike! Completely factory, for now...

On the list of things to do:

17" wheel conversion, including a wider rear wheel for a 160 profile rear tire.

High power charge contactor bypass battery pack tap for fast charging.

ATF cooled motor.

Twin size 4 controllers for 880 phase amps.

The bike will also be going on a bit of a diet before it goes onto the track.

A new chapter for Farfle racing.

Apologies for the cliché title, but Farfle racing has been on the back burner for awhile. Our fearless rider/programmer Chase is finishing up his ECE degree at OSU, And I have moved down to California to work for Farasis Energy inc who manufactures the cells used in Zero's motorcycles among others.

As for the motorcycle, Mk 4.5 has been sold to a friend of the team, and preparations for a new bike are underway. A super modified 2015 Zero DS supermoto, and a one of a kind 400hp carbon fiber AWD track car will be wearing Team Farfle stickers next year, so who knows where that will land us.

Signing off with some pictures,
