  • Release Stage 1 software, then 6 months later release Stage 2 with no hardware requirements, just software improvements for power delivery and driveability "After many hours of further research, tuning and testing"
  • Release a $3,700 exhaust (mufflers and tips) that drones enough for people to remove and return it.
  • Release a suspension system with shock mount relocators, take it off the website for 2 weeks and re-release with shorter bumpstops at half the cost.
The initial exhausts had a manufacturing defect that they admitted. They replaced the exhausts affected.
