All of Doug's results are easy to achieve with a hidden fuel tank, as mentioned.

Well, except for that whole cylinder magnet bullsh!t. And the actual efficiency bs. And the saving of America bs. And all the other pseudo-quasi-physics bs.

But the basic test is easy to pass, unless you carefully weigh the vehicle.

If he wants to impress me, which is unlikely, he will allow the car to be examined and operated by a good magician, a good physicist, and a good automotive engineer, all at the same time. All the bs stops that day.

This is so sad, it's comical.

Finest regards,

troy

Here's the latest....supposedly this is a drawing of what his magic motor is supposed to be like. Whaddya ya'll think? Any chance it could work? Would two 12 volt batteries do the trick?

Love it!!!

In the past I've written about hucksters that make up their own words, or mis-apply words to describe their frauds... it tends to work because we (guys especially; not necessarily Ecomodders because you all know EMers are above average) don't want to admit we don't have a clue WTF it means, so we nod our heads and say yup yup yup.

Think he reverse engineered this magic motor from his grandfather's secret book, who got it from the Roswell UFO?

Here's Palmear's latest hype, a video with some cool Cad-Cam animation of this concept.....which I'm guessing is all it is....

Furthering the thoughts here. He supposedlydeveloped this at least 1.5 years ago, when he first starting putting out test results. I don't buy it, because if so, why did he not make the Detroit Auto Show, where his "partner" Revenge Designs is supposed to be showing their new "Verde" Supercar.......(that news was released last week that the motor wouldn't be on display) This car of Revenge's is also a possible joke, as they have no real $ to develop another car, after their customized (Factory Five kit car) GTM-R was abandoned. A large part of the hype was the "green" hp2g "magic" motor.....

All that said, both have been getting way too much press....(maybe because they're good self-promoters......?)
