The competition, which was held between 16-23 October 2011, started in Darwin in the North of Australia and travelled south to Adelaide covering a total distance of 3,021km. Despite being in fifth place after qualifying, the Tokai Challenger car ran smoothly to complete the race in 32 hours and 45 minutes, reaching the finish line at 1pm on 20 October. The car used HIT solar cells, which have the world’s highest energy conversion rate. This was supported with high-capacity lithium-ion batteries provided by Panasonic. Super lightweight Toray carbon fibre material was supplied for the body which enabled the weight of the vehicle to be reduced to a mere 140kg. Professor Hideki Kimura, an expert in solar car technology, said, “I would like to acknowledge all the sponsors, academics and students for supporting the team. We are delighted with the result and very proud to have had the chance to support all the dedicated and talented people that make up the Tokai University team.nger car ran smoothly to complete the race in 32 hours and 45 minutes, reaching the finish line at 1pm on 20 October.

ARMA ENERGY – Lose The Liquid. Eat Your Energy.

ARMA ENERGY

Own the track, ski-slope, half pipe or gym. Move mountains. Terrorize trails. Jumpstart your slo-mo morning. Or outlast the night when you’re ready to rage. Now you can bump it up by eating energy – not dinking it. Introducing ARMA ENERGY

ARMA ENERGY applied the science of premium energy drinks to a functional food that kicks the ass of regular snacks. One bag of either COBRA or HELLFIRE delivers 70 milligrams of caffeine, 1000 milligrams of taurine, and 73 milligrams of B-complex vitamin (B-12, B-6, B-5, B-3). This is comparable to an 8.4-ouce can of Red Bull. But ARMA ENERGY wages war on both fatigue and hunger.

ARMA ENERGY’S has 6 varieties in its line, all with taurine, caffeine and B vitamins. They deliver a quick hit and zero crash.

Try them all: COBRA Kettle Cooked BBQ Chips, Hellfire Hot & Spicy Mix; C4 (Chocolate, Caramel, Cookie & Caffeine); RPG (Rocket Propelled Granola); T -Bomb (Trail Mix); and F-Bomb (Fruit & Nut Mix)
