But... the moment of inertia is also significantly higher..... The rest seems to be up to the gears.. pfft
I think I'd rather have that business jet featured on there.
Yeah that caught my attention too. Still looking into that one to see if it makes any sense.
Reminds me of a joke about an SUV that's so big, you'll never need to drive it; you walk in the driver's side door, and walk out the passenger side at your destination many miles away. Hence, perfect fuel economy! There's no catch.
I may be off base, but I'd think a high moment of inertia is a better thing for those who tend to drive smoothly; it would only be problematic if you tend to accelerate/brake frequently. (Like most drivers out here. *sigh*)
Oh, here are some nice reads:
That's just adorable! Can you exchange the front wheels for skis and make it a snowmobile in winter? It's so close to the ground, even if I slid off the road in ice, it would be more like sledding than crashing. The downside is everyone would see your clutter in the car, and the thieves could probably just pick it up and put it in the back of their pick-up truck. Can I get one with a really loud horn and blinking lights on the roof so I don't get squashed by the SUVs who won't see it?
Seriously, if I wasn't afraid someone would just pick it up and carry it away to steal it, it's the sort of car that would be fun as a second car for the daily commute. It looks like something out of the Jetsons!
It looks French.
I like the door.
If that be the case, think what a high wind would do.
BTW, where are the pedals?
Whoweee! Better get me the optional parachute!
Under her feet of course. :tongue:
Only to the extent that we [may] have fewer frictional losses in the drive train and on the road. And it may eliminate a gear reduction. But if you are saying that in principle this reduces the energy required to travel a given distance, no.
So much for dates in the back seat...
:rofl: That's a lot of windows to frost up too.
