I want to start this off with a bit of an apology and an explanation.
I know this group buy is long overdue— we had a handful of people who
missed out on the original one ask us for a second one. We kept putting it on
hold because we were working on a large set of orders as well as some R&D
and didn't want to have any delays delivering the systems you ordered.
With that said, we now have time again so we have no concerns with
getting you your systems in a timely manner.
On top of that (drumroll!)— after a good deal of testing, we have officially
made the RBS and CBS available for the Lotus Evora
; it performs at the
standard you've come to expect.
If you want to learn more about the batteries, here you go:
Here is a picture of the CBS (The RBS looks pretty much the same-- just
missing a button and a slightly different carbon fiber case):
Same insane battery as before (Some fun facts from the threads above):
*Started a Lotus Elise SC 95 times in a row without a hitch
*Weights only about 7 pounds... but is 3x more efficient (powerful!)
than a comparable lead acid battery
*Race-grade Carbon fiber monocoque case
*Hand-polished gold-plated aluminum posts weighing 3-hundredths of
a pound (versus ~1/4 lb) and 8x more conductive than lead posts
*Automotive-Grade Internals— not cheap power drill cells.
*A TRUE Warranty (not pro-rated, "We will give you 10% off a
new battery" or "Not for street use, but we void your warranty if used on
Anyway, just like last time, we are able to pass a pretty nice savings on to
you if we are able to custom-make our parts in bulk and produce them at
Chimera RBS: $597
Elise/Exige specific mounting system: $125
3 - 5 units: 6% off of battery or 8% off of battery + mounting system
6 - 9 units: 8% off of battery or 10% off of battery + mounting system
10 - 12 units: 12% off of battery or 15% off of battery + mounting system
Like last time: You don't need to put any money down until the Group Buy is
Also-- if anyone here who has a CBS or RBS wants to chime in, feel free
Let me know if you have any questions-- let's do this!
PS- If you are set on the CBS instead of the RBS, just let us know in this
thread or PM myself or Ali.M and we will set it up for you.
