Silent back yard motocross racing proves that there's no place like ohm.

You're going to get a lot of resistance to that one.

I just can't get all fired up about electric vehicles.. As you might of guessed kpaul was always the first kid in the neighborhood to clothespin playing cards to his bike spokes every spring. i.e. I love the sound of the internal combustion engine... yes I have a degree in electrical engineering but electric motors are boring and simple...and they don't sound sexy..loud pipes saves kpaul sanity..

It's a start. Gotta fiqure out a way to recharge the battery as you drive. One of those flip-over generators that powered bicyles headlamps back in the old days.

"Lots of questions, but the future is clear"



No, it isn't.



"and it aint the internal combustion engine."



Well, of course not. It could be ion-drive, or it could be horse-drawn carts.



I'm betting on the IC engine for at least another 25 years.
