Hey! Dan;

Here's your Cheep EV controller!! A large bucket, salt water,
electrodes lowered into the slop to go, pulled out to stop. Nuke reactor
tech?Control rods? Anyhow the trick would be how much salt water, keeping it
from slopping out during your driving acrobatics?And for us folks Up Noth an
INSTANT heater, too! Going along tomgue in cheek, with the windmills on the
roof, and front wheel gennies<g>!

We used to test large Gennies, in the Army with the 55 gal drums full
of salt water trick, back in the 60's when water had just been
invented<g>!Buy! Did we have lottsa hot water. Perfect for doing Lobsters if
we had any!
