Re: Motorsport, Racing, The Future

Well, I wonder when we'll get the inevitable Spec Tesla class. If you don't know what "Spec" racing is, it is about seemingly identical cars (Though there can be the tiny differences) that are supposed to be closely matched. But of course reality intervenes. I believe the Spec Miata is the...

Re: Build pack onto and around frame tube, rather than inside?

Sounds highly vulnerable. It can be hit from all sides. You cushion them from the frame for both vibration and impact, but they can be split apart. Then a good hard cause around the outside, not just a neoprene sleeve. Just sounds dangerous having that beam in the center. Maybe you need feet between...

Neither do I.

Who is this "Erik" you're talking about?
I would assume he owns ebikes.com. But that is also the real name of The Phantom of the Opera. This could make a great adventure.

Re: Can Tesla converted to diesel?

I think we need a better idea of why you want diesel in a Tesla. An expensive car that seems like it would be downgraded by what you're talking about.

It should be cheaper to maybe build this. https://rqriley.com/product/urba-town-c ... ric-plans/ Bigger motor is good. Better generator.

If the manufacturers want to sell cars to the offroaders, they won't build driverless. Let's see. Buena Park Raceway is slot cars, yep, electric. Cal Raceway is RC, probably both gas and electric.

Air brakes as retro rockets. Why not just do speed brakes such as on airplanes? All you need is flaps that pop up and create friction to spoil the laminar flow and the car will slow down.
