Re: Any Car Batteries You like?

The thing is, as far as I can test it, sure it's fine. But some erratic voltage regulator problem I can't check for. Driving most every day. The original alternator went out and I made it home, I'm sure the battery suffered. The replacement PepBoys rebuild let the battery light flicker on and off an...

Re: Critique this performance velomobile idea

GM could have done the same thing 10+ years before Tesla existed, but the common excuse for not doing so was "market forces". . . The fact that it was a cult of personality who made it all happen is irrelevant. . . . No, GM couldn't have even come close in the early to mid-90s . They didn...

Have you been able to get one at a parts store? I'm only finding them at the tire and auto service places that I'm sure demand to do some system check and I don't want to deal with that.

As I seen that you are working with Polypropylene corrupted sheets (Coroplast) Corrogated? The proper term for coroplast is 'Fluted.' It's kewl stuff, you can get plenty of it free when the elections are over. PP doesn't like things trying to stick to it, haven't used the Krylon Fusion that claims ...

Any Car Batteries You like?

I grew up watching Diehard batteries being perfect. As they used to be for me. The current(LESS) one I have now lasted barely more than 2 years, it replaced another Diehard that lasted barely more than 2 years. The truck takes 2, over $100 each, Diehards didn't hold up there, either. (No wonder Sear...

Re: UK petition to legalise personal electric vehicles

Surprised they are illegal. Isn't the UK part of Paris Accord?

Illegal IS regulated. People literally can't be seen on one?

Can YOU Survive Nitro Cold brew?

While they're in there trying to kill each other with keyboards, we should be sending them some Nitro Cold Brew. Don't drink coffee myself, but I discovered there are cans with a device at the bottom, so I had to look into this: Wow, when you open the can it releases nitrogen into your coffee. That'...

Re: Bitcoins

Not even directly through the national bank/ note issuer? Our countries have fairly similar institutions and in the UK you can exchange any withdrawn bank note going right back to 1694... But are those collectors items too valuable to do so? Solves the bank problem right there. In the U.S. people f...

Re: Emergency...Is this a good deal?

I wouldn't want to pay $1,475 for a new one, seems like there would be better things. Have you rode one? If you REALLY want to go 25mph on that, sounds good. I wouldn't pick that out for myself, though I'm tempted to play some games with an e300 upgrade. If it's a rental, what shape are the batterie...

Re: e-bike conversion kit?

What is a good/decent e-bike kit that isn't terribly expensive? I always want to ask if that's a rhetorical question. As they are saying, you must have more parameters to follow. So if were me I'd at least a 26" bike. I live around some hills, not in a totally flat neighborhood myself. I see 1...

Re: Suggested battery capacity for 30 min flight?

Well, let's see. 30 minutes of flight time meaning this is an ultralight/fly for fun out in the middle of nowhere? Or you take off from an airport after taxiing, make whatever departure and fly a half hour before picking up the pattern and flying in for a landing, taxi back, etc.? I assume you don't...

I grew up around Tommy Lasorda, he went to Mom's church. The Dodgers would be going to the World Series and the priests would have things to say. But he never seemed like the loudmouth he played on TV. Ya gotta love the chess game he could turn it all into, if the other pitcher had a shutout going T...

Re: Why my lights, tv, and everything else isn’t flickering.

Are you asking? 60hz is the frequency. Tesla himself chose that as the most efficient frequency to run electric motors. He also suggested 220acv, but Edison's 110dcv had people stuck on that voltage. I think to get DC power you had to be within 3 miles of the generating plant but the AC would allow ...

Button Willow? Here I thought it looked like 'The Wind and the Willows.' (Willow Springs.) Why they both have Willow in the name I'll never know. My assumption of her "Test" is that she's paying for it (With YouTube money). Which the unknown driver has to do somehow. Or YouTube got their a...

Yeah, this has always been going on. They argue that you're not charged with an offense, but the MONEY is. I'm always fascinated by these stories, prior to 9/11 one guy made enough of a stink that the airport security came over and took the Fed into custody. But this is lumped in with things such as...

Well,I hope you seriously disinfected in there, any bacteria inside could leave you seriously hating life. Is there enough tooth left for a crown? Probably less now if you try. This was not a good idea.

Dang, Tina Louise graceful to the end. She has always been a favorite target of multiple excastmates, but she was refusing to trash Dawn Wells even as Wells would be on talk shows trashing her. We'll never know the real story there, not that we really need to.
