Re: 180 mph Electric Car

Whats really stupid about all these "SO CALLED" zero emissions vehicles is "THEY ARE NOT ZERO EMISSIONS" You need to create the electricity to charge the batteries and that process creates emissions, you need to create the batteries for these vehicles and that takes some really "unenvironmentaly friendly" chemicals. So would somebody explain the ZERO emissions lie. Just my thoughts. [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Re: 180 mph Electric Car

Very good point <font color="blue">krabysniper</font color>.
I think many groups that are pushing for these types of vehicles fail to mention the obvious.
Do they ever bother to explain to the masses where the electricity actually originates from?

Re: 180 mph Electric Car

<font color="green"> There's another side to the coin as well. When all those fancy pants batteries wear out (like 500+lbs of them per vehicle), where are they going to go? They aren't exactly made out of puppies and lollipops. </font color>

OK, first off, who needs to drive 180mph?
Second, whos gonna go out and buy 8 tires for their car every 70k or so miles?
Third, 8 permanent magnet motors. I dunno about you, but that sounds like alot of expensive maintenance once those fields starting wearing down from constant use.
Fourth, damn its ugly! [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
Fifth is what shaggy said. Talk about an environmental disaster it would be with thousands of pounds of used batteries coming from each family!


Personally, they gotta make cars like they have in 'Back to the Future 2'! Mr. Fusion?! What a great idea! [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: 180 mph Electric Car

Look at most of the groups out there. They all ignore the negatives to their argument. Like those people out there complaining about hunting is cruel and unusual...umm ever been to a slaughter house? (then they say go vegan or something...uhh dunno about you but i am definitly not a herbivore)
I think people just want to complain, but why not just shove their foot up their a$$ and complain about that? at least that way the rest of us could get amusment out of it [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Well Jason, look at it this way.... If there is enough of them around you'll never have to worry about screws and nails in the road. The magnets will be as good as a street sweeper.

Re: 180 mph Electric Car

Hey [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] Now that is a good point to those things. Guess it wouldnt hurt to have 2 or 3 running around, might reduce the number of flats caused by crap dropped by other morons who don't secure their garbage. Hehe [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
