Really cool build you've got going there. I like your “eye” for the details your adding to it. I’ve got a shoebox I’d like to put a C5 under. Its a real rust bucket but I think I can buy a complete new body for it these days. The classic car aftermarket ... more »

Chevrolet had a hybrid pickup they introduced in 2005. It was a Silverado 1500 but it really was only a large generator/starter with several batteries and basically just introduced the engine stop/start technology. It provided modest fuel efficiency

The TV crew needs to do a close-up, slo-mo video of a scrub, show it during the broadcast and have JS7 explain how and why its done, the risks of doing it and the rider energy required to perform it. It happens so fast that a casual fan may not really

Pretty cool and you did a good job flying and keeping the rider in frame. Having done some flying with my Phantom 2, I’d guess thats not the easiest thing to do. You guys flying FPV with these racing drones appear to be pretty good at it though. I wonder

I've wondered what happened to the Silenthawk program. I believe that was the contract that Alta was competing for. I think they placed a small multifuel rotary engine genset on their bike just like the bike in your link has. I was hopeful they'd get ... more »

2004 Red Bud national: Tedesco fell at the start of the 125cc moto 2. He was on a Kawasaki. He went on a tear for a few laps and hucked Laroccos Leap for a few consecutive laps. Cool to watch and the fans went nuts.

With a smaller tractor like that you won’t be able to till very deep. What happens is you don’t have a very deep bed of nice loose soil above the bottom of the furrow that those leading plow tines create. So when you ride the track your tires will find ... more »

No doubt HRC had talent designing two stroke motors. I can't help but wonder if they hadn't helped force the changeover to the four strokes if they wouldn't have alot more wins in the record book than their four strokes offerings have had.

This is something I’ve suggested before. Its just plain stupid to have two 450 classes. The FIM appears to still embrace the two strokes in their racing programs so why not provide an outlet for those racers to represent their country? It’d also likely ... more »
