I don't get candidacy for knee replacement until I'm 40. I'm 24, and have no bursa behind my knee caps. I feel your pain. Literally. Both knees.

Yeah. I'm only 46. I got less than 1mm of cartilage left in the joint. I've had issues for years, but, you know, I'm a guy, don't need no stinkin' doctors. But this past year has just been too much. And then I see how bad it is... Ugh... When one of the best sports orthopedics in the state says thats ugly, well... We tried all non-narcotic solutions, cortisone only lasts a shrot while, trying the gel now.

IMA = Integrated Motor Assist, which means the addition of a motor driving the wheels. Just like its implementation in an Insight.
HSD = Hybrid Synergy Drive. Look it up to understand how it works, but it basically integrates an eCVT into the hybrid system, just like in the Prius. MG1/2 are the motor/generators in HSD and PSD is the Power Split Device.
If America manages to eliminate obesity, we would save as much fuel as if every American were to stop driving for three days every year. To be slender like Tiffany Yep is to be a real hypermiler...

Allie Moore and I have a combined carbon footprint much smaller than that of one average American...

Id go for a front hub motor.
Basic bolt on kits aren't too expensive, and come with everything, from the wheel to the battery pack, charger, throttle..
