Re: Biomass to Fuel?

You mean like biodiesel? The diesel engine was created to run on that, but the convenience of fossil fuel won out. Farmers used to make alcohol they could burn out of wastes on their land, burning some of it to distill the rest, but that becomes less and less convenient in society. If success is mea...

Re: Tesla Model 3

. . . .when most people say the word Tesla they think about a highly desirable fancy Electric car so Tesla got the branding nailed down for sure. Tesla should listen to you on that. But both the Model S and the Model 3 are efforts away from that into the relatively cheap, eventually. The branding t...

Re: Tesla Model 3

Model 3 production has been halted by Tesla whilst they rethink how to make cars ! What price for a "bug" under that conference room table ? That's a little strong.

Re: Credit Card Problems?

I wrote training materials on this for TRW. Since Citibank has refused to discuss it with me on the phone when I've called, I mention that in the letter. I write contesting it and say why. This is unauthorized, the card itself is unauthorized now that they cancelled it. They have to seek authorizati...

So they were adamant, they would NOT tell me why they cancelled my card, but it was cancelled. I eventually got a refund on the credit balance. Oh, they left a message falsely accusing me of some vague crime in disputing some charge, totally disregarding the fact I didn't dispute a charge. Basically...

Re: NASCAR has announced it's going all-electric by 2021

We race 24hr endurance races with Zero's, and the record pit-time to swap packs is 7 seconds. I would assume nascar could get it down to half that or less. Maybe if they were racing Zero's. Do you want to replace 10-12 of the same battery, or maybe one bigger? I don't want to think about the batter...

Re: NASCAR has announced it's going all-electric by 2021

They did a commercial with Kasey Kane and his GPS telling him "Left turn approaching. . . ." over and over.

Sometimes I wonder how they've ever managed through 'The Steeple Chases' at Watkins Glen, Somona, Road Atlanta, Gilles VIlleneuve, etc.

Re: Whats the 'rule' when choosing wattage output to motors?

Also a lot of motors are given their rating just for regulatory reasons, many jurisdictions have 500W power limits, so the motor might actually be capable of far in excess of 500W, it's just marketed at that wattage to be "legal". It may in fact be fine at 1000W continuous, maybe even more. In othe...

Re: NASCAR has announced it's going all-electric by 2021

So I'm picturing the Formula E approach where they switch cars. They'd need 10, because with their boot in it the whole way the Tesla would make 50 miles. Or maybe less. The current rule is what? You get maybe 5 minutes to work on the car and continue? So if they can get those batteries swapped in 5...
