I can't see teh Video CS For some reason adobe flash keeps killing my browser But is this similar to the Mazda rotary engine in that the rotary engine's piston was free of the crank shaft? I am thinking it may be but without seeing it I don't know.


It's a gas piston powered linear electric generator to provide electric power directly to EVs.



OH that's cool. :)

The F-22 is a better fighter to fighter combat design. But that is what it was always what it was intended to be. The F35 is a good replacement for the Harrier. The F22 is a good replacement for the F15

http://www.flightglobal.com/blogs/the-d ... o-contest/

But the real issue is money Since both were originally to be built in larger numbers:

While the service will soon begin receiving a sizeable number of F-35 Joint Strike Fighters, everybody seems to have forgotten—at least everybody
in OSD seems to have forgotten—that the F-35 was designed to operate in tandem with the F-22. Therefore, the fact that we’re terminating
the F-22 at half of the stated requirement does not speak well for the future viability even of the F-35.

A car which uses an electrolyte flow cell power system is now certified for use on European roads. The car is called the Quant e-Sportlimousine, which made its debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.

Not only can this car run on salt water, but it is claimed that the car has peak power of 920 horsepower (680 kW), 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 217.5 mph (350 km/h).

Polyamides are a class of plastics that include nylon and Kevlar. The fuel to be used for SpaceShipTwo's rocket is a thermoplastic, meaning that it becomes pliable above a specific temperature.

You're a hot mama with a wicked sense of humor, an intellectual babe, and a gearhead chick? :o :shock:

What a package! :)

Suddenly I feel so inadequate... :(

Yet appreciative.... 8-)

Jalopnik | Video Shows Lamborghini Huracan Doing 335 kph [208 mph] On Highway Before Crash



Bonus points go to the Hungarian Police for having a sense of humor. Let me explain!

http://police.hu/hirek-es-informaciok/l ... l-fotokkal

Now, Porsche in Hungarian is pronounced porse, which spelt like por se means "not even dust".
So, their URL basically translates to : The Lamborghini That Became (a) "Por Se". Get it?


Both the driver and passenger survived, with the driver facing reckless driving and endangerment charges.

F1 driving skills do not come as part of the auto package . . .

Since you love big piston engines

http://www.gizmag.com/go/3263/picture/6193/


If the Seven Wonders of the World was updated for the 21 st century, the Wartsila-Sulzer RTA96-C turbocharged two-stroke diesel engine could be a contender. If you are a student of the internal combustion engine in all its wonderous configurations, then feast your eyes on this set of numbers which outline the truly astounding engineering feat. It is the most powerful and most efficient engine in the world today.

Bloomberg | Apple Wants to Start Producing Cars as Soon as 2020

Apple Inc., which has been working secretly on a car, is pushing its team to begin production of an electric vehicle as early as 2020, people with knowledge of the matter said.

The timeframe -- automakers typically spend five to seven years developing a car -- underscores the project’s aggressive goals and could set the stage for a battle for customers with Tesla Motors Inc. and General Motors Co., both of which are targeting a 2017 release of an electric vehicle that can go more than 200 miles on a single charge and cost less than $40,000.


Not sure about driving a Windowless car . . .

Not sure if it makes sounds like this either



Just remember with Apple -- it don't thing if it ain't got that ding.

They say with a Windows car, when it stops working, all you have to do is close the Windows Then reopen them, and it will work just fine :D
