Two questions :D

1) So, are those solid-state batteries likely legit, then?

2) Given the assertions made on here that low-voltage, mega-current, many phase motors are the path to the future and enlightenment etc, will we soon be seeing Zero products incorporating such systems?

Yea that interview was great.

When I first joined the board and seen him in a pic with Fabio I knew he was someone special.

Then to see what he's done for the ev world blew me away.

Yeah, he's "smarter than you average bear, boo boo" I think he has actually been pedaling "real" bycycles for that weight reduction. Cyclocross stuff, and it shows :mrgreen: That beard does remind me of the old TV series Grizzly Adams :D

Its how a mans face looks who embraces his nature.

The human male face appearance you are comfortable with requires consuming time and resources towards the effort of styling/removing the naturally occurring dead protein extrusions that occur.

Unnecessary. I prefer to spend my life without the time wasted in customary "primping" exercises some choose for vanity or whatever.
Each carcinogen vapor exposure includes a dice roll for cancer.

Each mutagen vapor exposure includes a dice roll for reproductive genetic defects in your children.

Each engine start sprays them into a shared atmosphere which includes beings not offered an opportunity to consent accepting these cancer experiences and defective genetics life experiences.

Spinni, I am a gasoline hot-rodder from way back. In about 1990 I invented the perfect improvement to the piston engine.

Luke really does'nt understand the internal combustion engine as well as I do.

Unless Luky has also coincidently invented a perfect ICE.

Your move, Spinni.

Anybody else think that this gonz guy is a rude idiot? All he does is shit on every thread he posts in. He contributes nothing of value and has an way oversized ego.

It's a good thing I don't run this joint because I'd give this obvious troll a permanent vacation.

It was a good interview, I shared on FB last week. I'm sure a lot of ICE lovers balked at it, but I would put my money on electric winning ultimately.
