Re: Good News.
Actually it doesn't matter to me if he has done any of the projects he's talking about. All I would be interested in is some resources to find some fact. But if Mr. West is just fantasizing here, then obviously no facts or sources are needed.
But, even though I would consider myself as pretty active car builder, I too fantasize about projects that I'll never even start. Not that most of them wouldn't be possible, or even feasible for me to fulfill, but unfortunately I only have time to complete maximum of 5% of them in my lifetime. I just have way too many crazy ideas, and too little time. Why do have to be limited to about max.100 years? =)
Latest mad idea involving a MMH would be to use the driveline and hybrid components from that to a Chevy Astro. Yes, absolutely crazy! Even though the reason for it is solid. The Astro is about the most useful car for our needs I've ever come by. Possible, maybe. I haven't found enough information about the low speed torque specs of the MMH, nor about the weight of the components. Feasible, not yet at least. The project would take me about 1-2 years active building to finish and we would need to buy a MMH separate for that project. But if somebody wants to donate me a technically sound MMH, I'll happily take it in and start the project. =)
Ok, realistically this will not be on the top of my list of projects to start.
