they this is off topic.. but im just hearing alot about electrical and hybrid vehicles lately.

i know they are a good thing

and I have seen a few differn't kinds at the tech school..

im just wondering why there couldn't be a car that is self suffencient.. true it would ruinthe economy somewhat.. but

seriously...

I think you would use a windmil style electric generator to produce more power then is being used to charge some mega beef electro magantic kinda battery or something.. i dunno.. windmills make all in of electricity just form wind.. a car has penty if wind and uses a fan to cool the motor.. I wonder why anyone hasn't though about making a windmil style fan that turns to produce power and to cool the engine.

or even just put a small windmil fan in an air dam somewhere to produce extra electricty.

And anouther wierd idea.. why not put a kinda alternator attached to each wheel... instead of to a turning gas powered motor... you could put it on say a cv axle... and your original bater could be used to get the car rolling then once moving the 2 or 3 alternators could be used to produce enough power to power the vehicle and to keep the batteries always charged... why are automotive makers settling for vehicle tha tyou have to plug in... or rely still on a gasoline engine..

I duno... I've always htought about this becuase it was a project to design a hybrid or electric car... in theroy and that was both of my theories way back when.. most people were tlaking solar and dumb unpracticle shit... what do you all think about my ideas... or do you all have any?

just wondering.. sorry to type so much and all..

Quack!
