"Our goal was to make the car FF91 jump above its capacity. In addition, during testing we were able to identify some problem areas. For example, one of the power switch and battery problems in the behavior of one of the circuit boards. This will allow us to quickly make changes to the design of the car, to a future production version were spared from such shortcomings. "
