Re: White putty used in battery packs?

Not sure if it's full fledged silly putty or just a component of it, but that is probably silicon dioxide. They use it inside and out with lithium batteries.

Re: Electric cyclekart

Cyclekarts started with an engine rated at 6.5hp, whether it delivered I wouldn't know, but they claimed the performance you're talking about. So you would think of a 5,000w motor.

Re: Isuzu trooper

This works great on a blown head gasket, IF you follow the directions and do it correctly. If you just dump it in the radiator you're probably just going to make things worse. But I've used this on cars for several people and they go on driving them. https://www.zoro.com/kw-head-gasket-repair-16-oz-...

Any time I take out a stump in my yard it's with a pick ax. Chip pieces off until it's below the ground level.

Everyone is a regular person...
It is just that some think they are better than others...and some are told they are better than others..
And thus make excuses for not being a regular person anymore. Not something she would do.

Simply put, more and more range means less need for charging for a single car. But more and more cars means more need. So it's possible it would balance out, but more likely you see more need. The growth curve might be in the law of diminshing returns, needing fewer and fewer additional chargers for...
