Re: [EVDL] homemade Hummer to have turbine jet engine recharge super capacitor batter

I think in the end just bolting something up is actualy what it takes
after suffienct design and planning. This illusion that it is mystic
science or beyond the capabilities of a regualr person and a small
garage is exactly what he has ALREADY proven incorrect in his last cars
that ALREADY perform beyond what gm said was possible.

It is in fact just '"bolting it up " that is what is necessary.

That's the point he proved already.
