I wonder....what if certain lanes on a hwy were paved with recycled metals. Build a few regular cars with electromagents and tires. Drive onto this surface then switch to magnet mode.

No resistance, so all the engine would have to do is run a generator. I wonder if running the generator would be less power demanding than moving the car with tires.

I'd say if the speed limit was much higher, it would use less power.

At first I thought it would use a huge amount of metal. But look at all of the unused train rails stretched all over the country doing nothing.

Yeah those are pretty cool. I have to admit, I didn't think I'd see an actual hover board in my lifetime.

here are the kix to match!!

System Specs as of 5/15/08 (updating soon)
It is an absolute FACT that the order of the parts in a watercooling system doesnt matter.
This isnt anyones opinion, its a simple fact of watercooling
and one of the most common misconceptions. It's been proven more times than I can count
: P0 proverb 3.26.6
Repugnant is the creature who would squander the ability to
lift his eye to heaven conscious of his fleeting time here.
