Better Power Density huh? Makes sense in a Smart Car, but a 50,000 lb RV with 40+ feet of space, who cares?

I read through most of their marketing material and it's quite long on promises and very short on specifics. Did anyone notice they mention Bill Gates as a primary financier? Now if that said Warran Buffet or T. Boone Pickens I'd be sitting up straight and paying attention. Right now, this sounds like another spin on an old mousetrap.

What ever happened to Hydrogen Fuel cells? that actually had merit.

If you think this engine will come to market I have a bridge for sale cheap. Just more pie in the sky dreams. But I bet they would take your money as investor. Sounds like something for the Vancouver Stock Exchange!

No, I'll keep on struggling on with my VW 1.8 Litre 16 Valve, just trying to see how far I can go with that.

I got that link from my buddy Rich Hoffman who does my engine work that I can't do on the Wabbit, he has been working on and modifying VW air-cooled engines for a long time, heck he even raced with Jim Brookshire back when Jim won the SCCA National Formula Vee championship, I think Jim is still racing from time to time, when he isn't working on his 'Bird, here he is a few years ago with his old SP and I believe he built and designed the Vee shown here at Carolina Motorsports Park, not bad for an OLD MAN
