So why is it that the angle of the underside of that 'tail is greater than the top ?

( The 'tail on the EV-1 that is. )

FYI, I got a decent start yesterday editing a video together with the tuft testing as the meat of it. Might get it done & posted tomorrow.

How are you planning on making a final version? I am looking into doing this for just the publicity for Ecomodder.com and the hypermiling community, I have never really been on TV or in the paper and this would be a fun way to get in on some action. By action I mean spreading the word. From now on I will post a simplified version of my posts so everyone can understand them.

Are you for real?

Haven't decided on the approach of the final version yet. Leaning toward fabric/material over aluminum frame. (I still need it to be removable and break-down-able.) Since it won't be a project until the white stuff goes away, I'm in no panic to commit to a particular path at the moment.

What?

Oh wow, I get what you are saying now. No no, not for the "look at me" more of a "look at the sport, look at what GM is failing at" I didn't mean for that to sound like it was typed. I will edit it.

...Darin's a "modest mouse" by personality... I'd imagine quite the opposite of wanting to be on TV for a boat tail.


This post is, of course, my opinion, and not proven fact in any facet of imagination. Aside from what is known and available here, I don't know Darin from Adam or another person. I could be completely wrong about him. That's just the vibe I get.

Check my edits, I said it wrong, and before I noticed it Metro posted.

Aw, don't be offended, it was an honest mistake.

That's why he said "Are you serious?"... not being rude, just making sure what you actually meant.

I can go back and delete those posts if you want...
