    I think this is a really good upgrade to the design.

    I have checked the website the XR3 three wheel car. It seems the site is suspended.

    I have checked their page on Facebook but have not got a response to what happened to their website.
    It is a shame since there are some plans for neat looking cars.

    I think one could still get the plans at this site; Build and Fly - XR3.

    While I like the looks of this one, I'm afraid for some of us older people getting in and out might be a problem. It also looks like a rear engine design so it would be pretty bad to drive in the winter on snowy roads.

    I'll comment on this. This one is best as a FWD EV with left and right motors. With oversized motor you can go with stepped belts and one gearing. With one gear set, you won't go over 110mph, but who really needs that?
