    geoffrey hackett Неделю назад Where’s the video about importing a car over?
  • Ben Vernick
    Ben Vernick 2 недели назад Umm no this does not show anything about how to import a car into the USA. Where is that video I’d like to see it.

    Lance Baker 3 недели назад The link is to a video about driving a Ford Model T, so totally useless.

    Shed dweller 1 месяц назад These are cool but for the same money you could buy a brand new 7 berth motorhome complete with drop down electric bed, rear bunk beds, oven,hob, shower, WC, solar panel, TV, gas/electric central heating, bike rack and enough storage to take everything you need to live off-grid for extended periods...

    clu4u 1 месяц назад Simon Ci, just stop all the fukin nonsense, it will NEVER work even if you recapture 100% on your puny panels. You need more than a house sized solar system. I have a Tesla and soon to get solar panels, so I’ve looked into it a bit.

    Adawg 303 2 месяца назад Simon Ci and if you can’t afford petrol I doubt u can afford to even build a solar rig would be smart to use solar for air conditioning and heat but electric motors have their drawbacks when it comes to malfunctions and overheating is gonna be the main issue on something that weighs over 5 tons
  • Adawg 303
    Adawg 303 2 месяца назад Simon Ci yeah but most people want a motor that actually works see liquid exploding dinosaur is reliable fuel that’s why my ford econoline still runs after 15 years because of a triton ford v10

    Simon Ci 2 месяца назад (изменено) Third? You talking about old panels. Now there are already "muli junction" panels 46% efficient https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jmKPtTK8ZNQ and new research found panels 61% efficient. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=stNNs-CC6a8 , and there is New batteries that you could charge in minutes. Combined this 2, and your car will charge faster than you need for driving https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GeSvErqdmIM and here is about transparent solar panels https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjEncZu344M

    Rick & Zack Explore Offroad 2 месяца назад @Simon Ci You could turn the entire car into a solar panel and at any given time only a third will be, at best, producing electricity. And that is only if you position the car in the optimum position relative to the sun. Which means moving the car every hour or so. Believe me if you are camping and have to re-do your awnings etc constantly you would be praying for a gas generator. Also it is not the solar panels that are the problem. If you have an unlimited budget to buy and replace you can go hog wild. You still need to store the power and lithium batteries are very heavy, very expensive and very big. To store the energy needed to get any reasonable range your looking at a whole new chassis and suspension. It is just not practical. Even Tesla, with an unlimited R&D budget, dropped their research into electric trucks. Your better off just putting in extra fuel tanks. Cheaper, lighter and far more reliable.

    Simon Ci 2 месяца назад There is already transparent solar powers, could be in car windows. There is paint that act like solar ponel. So All car 100% Could be 1 big solar panel. Every year is so big progress, in few years electric motorhomes with solar panels will be on sale.
