As many of you know I have been working on building out my 16’ GEM E4. Last night I was able to drive it for the first time. To the best of my knowledge this is the first GEM car EVER to be powered by a Tesla battery. Still lots more to do but making it move for the first time was awesome.
Here are some pics and a video, big thanks for all the help from @Inwo @grantwest @bundcur @kinghappy - I could not have done it without their help.
