About 8 years back i remember my father telling me about a guy who had invented a set of frictionless ball bearings using magnets, he installed the ball bearings on an old buick or somthing of the sort that was a heavy boat of a vehicle. i remember my father telling me that the guy had pushed the car a little bit and then let it coast and the car coasted a 1/4 mile before it came to a complete stop. i didnt really think about it then because i wasnt old enough to drive yet. Well... i am now 23 years old and have been into drag racing and automotive performance for a long time now. I recently started thinking about what my father told me and realized that with a frictionless ball bearing that could enable a vehicle to be moved with such little effort one could build quite the race car with only a fraction of the horsepower. i also started thinking about the bennefits somthing like this could reap when fuel consumption and longevity(sp?) of the power train parts are brought into play on just an everyday commuter car. I dont remember much about what my father told me but i do remember him mentioning somthing about the acctual ball bearing floating and not even touching any other metal part making it a true frictionless setup. i was wondering if anyone might have any information on this subject because i have searched the internet and found nothing about it. i was also wondering if anyone might be able to fabricate somthing of this sort as i am extremely interested in getting my hands on somthing like this for my next project car. if you or anyone you know can provide any more information about this please Email me ASAP @ Intalect187@msn.com. thank you joel Brown.
