You can see the video here: <http://www.ap.org/>http://www.ap.org/ On
the bottom left hand corner it says AP News Minute. Click on that
then click on the Science and Tech tab, then you'll see the story
"Amp heads light up the strip" and click on that.

I really like Wayland's explaination of how the Zilla works.

Hello to Bill and All,

Thanks for the shortcuts. I tried the first way of getting to the videos
you suggested, and though icons of videos popped up, clicking on 'play'
did nothing, nor did 'add to play list'. All that continued to happen
was an incessant replay after replay of the day's top world news
stories. I was unable to play the EV videos until you gave the below
direct links....thanks.

It is absolutely astounding to me, how after such a lame, poorly written
piece by Aaron Clark, the AP video guys did a 180 turn-around and came
up with two of the best hi pro EV type videos I've seen! Now 'this', is
what I had hoped the story would have imparted. Instead of the article's
negative 'EVs still don't cut it mode', the videos exude speed and power
and show how we are achieving great results at the track. Instead of a
goofy comparison of my street legal EV to a top fuel funny car/rail
dragster (it still makes me scratch my head how anyone could make such a
ludicris comparison), the video shows it leaving a high powered American
muscle car in its wake. Instead of going on and on about top fuel this
and nitromethane that, they show Bill in his animated best explaining
the 'bottomless pit of energy' that the current version of lithium
batteries can supply. The video producer 'got it', big time'...Aaron
Clark, most certainly, did not.

For those as put off by the story as I, my wife, Tim Brehm, Marko
Mongillo, and just about everyone else I've talked to was, other than
Bill :), please take Bill's direct links and go put a huge EV grin on
your face today!

See Ya.....John Wayland

Hmmmmm..... I'm still not quite sure how Bill feels about A123 battery performance... ;-)

I really like John's sign-language rendition of series-parallel too!!

Hey John

Kind of reminds me of Alice in Wonderland! I think
they were all just singing "we're painting the roses
red" as it beats the queen screaming "Off with their
heads" LMAO! 8^P
Sorry couldn't resist 8^)
Cya
Jim Husted
Hi-Torque Electric
AKA the imperial guard of the Queen of hearts 8^)
You heard the queen, start singing! 8^o
We painted the roses red...
