Thread: Great minds required...

    Default Great minds required...

    So here's a thought (and I dont know what I'm going on about) but here it is...

    At higher speeds the mass of a car is held back by air resistance. Like wading through soup...

    So huge amounts of power are required to force through the airs resistance.

    Here's the thought, could you create a forward facing 'shockwave' pulse ahead of the car which 'thinned' the air in front of it... therefore making the car go faster due to less 'resistance'

    Why not just warp the space around the car?

    well the car wouldn't be moving then, it'd be space thats moving.

    what you need is a deflector array.

    Do what some would suggest fit longer gear ratios as that in the 120 CDTI.

    My little joke.

    Why not fit a gravity drive and fold spacetime. You will get there in no time. Shortest distance between two points... n' all that.

    Shortest distance between two points usually means you NEVER get there
