Have you done any performance mods?
What is the top speed with those tires, and how does it do on mild grades?

Thx, DB

It still achieves its top speed of 25 mph, it just takes a bit longer to get there. I haven't done any performance mods to it or had much time to play with it. We built it and then sent it to a dealer in Rancho Mirage to put on display. We are planning to bring it back to our facility this week and I will let you know how it does on some of our tests.

Thanks John

Interesting. Have you tried it with a GPS? If larger tires don't add speed, then maybe the speedo is tied to the hall effect sensor that regulates the speed. If you get a chance, see if the controller for the E-4 is plug compatible. Since the E-4 is heavier, it might deliver more amps. I checked the parts lists for both and the only difference I can see is the controller.

If it is a Tomberlin E-Merge, and has all the equipment, a VIN number, and a certificate of origin (Truly a street version, not a modified golf cart), it is covered under VA DMV

§ 46.2-908.2. Low-speed vehicles; required equipment.

Every low-speed vehicle operated upon a highway shall be equipped with head lights, brake lights, tail lights, reflex reflectors, an emergency or parking brake, an externally mounted rearview mirror, an internally mounted rearview mirror, a windshield, one or more windshield wipers, a speedometer, an odometer, braking for each wheel, a safety belt system, and a vehicle identification number.

§ 46.2-908.3. Low-speed vehicles; operation on highways; license required; registration required; safety and emissions inspections not required.

Low-speed vehicles may be operated on public highways where the maximum speed limit is no greater than thirty-five miles per hour, but this limitation shall not prohibit the operation of low-speed vehicles across intersections with highways whose maximum speed limits are greater than thirty-five miles per hour. Operation of low-speed vehicles shall be prohibited on any highway where the Department of Transportation or the local governing body of the locality having control of the highway, as the case may be, has prohibited their operation in the interest of safety and such prohibition is indicated by conspicuously posted signs.

Low-speed vehicles shall be operated on public highways only by persons who hold driver's licenses or learner's permits issued as provided in Chapter 3 (§ 46.2-300 et seq.) of this title.

Low-speed vehicles shall be titled and registered as provided in Chapter 6 (§ 46.2-600 et seq.) of this title and shall be subject to the same requirements as to insurance applicable to other motor vehicles under that chapter.

The operator of any low-speed vehicle being operated on the highways in the Commonwealth shall have in his possession: (i) the registration card issued by the Department or the registration card issued by the state or country in which the low-speed vehicle is registered, and (ii) his driver's license, learner's permit, or temporary driver's permit.

The provisions of Article 21 (§ 46.2-1157 et seq.) and Article 22 (§ 46.2-1176 et seq.) of Chapter 10 of this title shall not apply to low-speed vehicles.

Federal test process for LSV

Golf carts are covered under VA DMV 46.2-916.

I hope this helps. If not, I have the name of a person who pushed mine through the DMV for $75. I was warned that the DMV is tricky for people who have never registered an LSV.

If the certificate of origin says low speed vehicle for body type the DMV will give you a title and tags. They don't require a licenses plate but in my housing development the anal board members would have a cow if I didn’t have one. So I put tags and liability insurance on it so they can’t says anything about it.

Sounds like you got it resolved. congrats. I have about 800 street miles on mine Since July '08. I have been stopped 4 times by various members of the local PD. All of them thanked me for the education about LSVs. No tickets. There is only one other LSV in my area, a GEM car, so most people are surprised when they see me on the street.

The dealer where I bought my 2008 Tomberlin E2 says the lift kits he has are only available for 2010 models. Will yours fit on a 2008?
