Re: Test driving the Jaguar I-PACE

I vote for Darwin. Leave the cars quiet, disregard the bereaved during their reality disassociation phase and soon enough the new generation will learn that situational awareness is more important than their mobile devices when crossing the street.

Re: Can a Raleigh Furley be converted?

Short answer, yep.

You will need to research your bike specifics (didn't see dropout widths in the specs from your link).

A Q100 geared front tyre kit would be easiest and not too obtrusive. A lot of people prefer a rear tyre kit.

There are lots of options, have a look around.

The Redflow batteries in Australia look like they are working OK, with a few relatively minor teething problems.

Has anyone tried oil filling one of these? Looks doable and should massively improve heat shedding.

Re: railroad tracks then ER

Paracetamol = Tylenol, normal adult dosage 4x 1000mg daily.

Ponstan = not sure, maybe Ponstel? Ask the chemist for the anti-inflammatory Mefenamic Acid. Normal adult dosage 4x 500mg daily after meals.
Ponstan/Ponstel might be expensive in the USA. Fairly cheap elsewhere around the globe.

Re: My electric Volkswagen Sandrail (Dune Buggy).

The part I would find hardest is remembering that the electric motor is happiest at high RPM whereas ICE's generally are not. I would always be shifting into 3rd or 4th when cruising where it would be better left in 2nd.

It is likely the majority of new vehicles will be powered by other than fossil fuels in 8 years. I doubt fossil fuelled vehicles will ever completely vanish.

That's a lot of end float in the video of you moving the crank. Looks to me like the thrust bearing wasn't adjusted correctly to begin with. Now you have taken it apart, when you put it back together if you set the thrust bearing clearance correctly you might find the creaking disappears along with ...

Re: Bulk Ferrotec Ferrofluid APG1110

Of all the Ferrotec fluids the APG1110 or APG311 look most suitable to me. I can't see why you would need a carrier with higher flash point than 200c given (from anecdotal reports) most motors seem to fail around 150c. Also, the presence of the ferrofluid itself should lower the risk of in hub temps...
