I'm a WINNER - again!

Hi Everyone,

Recently, I was doing some experimental DIY Hybrid work and entered it in a contest, and WON!

At the same time, I entered it an another contest, and won a runner-up position. The prize on that is a Instructables.com t-shirt and $50 gift certificate for Personal Factory (tm) - design, make & build your own custom products

It feels good to be a winner!
What should I do with that $50 at Ponoko? It would be cool to make open source EV keychains, or laser etch the Open ReVolt logo. Any other ideas!? It would be great to use something to help promote the DIY clean transportation spirit!

Question, if adding a big chrome fart can muffler adds 10hp to a car, what % FE increase comes from adding a laser etched, stainless steel EM logo to the hood ?

Keep winning those contests Ben !


I can't understand why my MPG's are so low..........
21,000lb, 41' Toy Haulers are rough on FE!
