The inventor died apparently without passing on what this material actually was. There some public demonstrations - but hardly the type of experiments that you would need to do before building an engine with it.I think I am, and from what I understand by your comment, there is no way to know, correct?
Yes. Dissipation of the heat (releasing it into the air) is both a practical and theoretical requirement. Insulating an engine cannot, even in principle, make it perform substantially better.So, you are saying if a cooling system were made of starlite, would that cooling system "kill" the car? And then we wouldn't have the better use of dissipated energy?
Evidently he never let anyone have a sample. Perhaps his family knows. Coincidentally, there is an active thread on this topic:And why someone didn't do a reverse engineering to discover what that material was made from?
