Very cool. With a few mods, I think we could hang.

I bet the motor is brushless

Electric motors spin in excess of 20,000 RPM...practically no moving parts aside from the core. The only fuel based engines are the F1 cars...which are limited to 19,000 rpm.

On the way home from California. Taken the morning of 12/30. We had stopped to show the car to a few folks in St. Louis we met through Camaro5 and stopped to see the arch on our way.

Sorry we missed you.

LOL...there is a reason battery operated cars have been dying off...

the problem was the battery disposal...those things have way more effect on the planet than toxins from car exhaust will ever have.

Nickel Hydride isnt exactly nice to things it touches.

And the battery life is laughable...60 batteries got him to charge back up after 12 seconds of running the car.

The only thing we need to find...is find a fuel...that can run in current gasoline engines with no mods...

But then again we had the water car since the 50's

In fact the guy that invented the water spark plug...just died (cough assasinated)...all u did was pay $115 for the plugs...replaced the spark plugs for the water plugs...and you had a car that ran on water. It disheartens me to hear all these stories of people who threatened the demand of oil, all of a sudden the people died of "natural causes".

I cant remember the water plug guy's name, ill try to start a thread when i remember
