That's right, I have nothing of importance to say.

Jess of displacethoughts changed her colour scheme! Why! Why! Why!

And this is the sexiest thing I've ever seen. Ooh. La. La. Imagine that tranny on a diesel.

Or, better yet, imagine a diesel-electric with HCCI.

Sadly, the day of the mechanical transmission is passing away in favor of electrical power transmission. It's cheaper, easier, and more efficient, assuming that the generator is good. Changing power ratios may be difficult without the minimum of a gearbox, but a planetary gear or two on the differential (or output shaft of a direct drive motor!) will solve that. I don't think electrical control of N/m is that difficult, anyway.

Of course, there's the software controlling the motors. Beware the blue screen of death.

For a more coherent post, look in the archives.
