    Like I said, very weak loophole. I believe the "element of skill" thing is wording from UK, not Irish Law.

    There's two areas that are problematic.

    1. Even under UK Law the "element of skill"...

    I did not say that R. Kings were selling ropey cars by the way, just that if someone, especially a one off raffle, wanted to dispose of a ropey car, a raffle would seem wide open to abuse. I was...

    Or, you could just charge up somewhere if charging is fast. In the US, you can drive through parts of it for hours without seeing civilization. If you drive through Ireland for 10 minutes without...

    I reckon range is a red herring for Europeans. In the US, yes, you can do a single 400km trip easily. Here... not so much. Really, fast recharge time would be more important. Who cares about having...

    Teslas motor control units are brilliant, but they can't build a body in white properly to save their lives.
