Re: The Living Bus Project
First off, I hugely respect your ability to calculate all this and recognize the amount of thought that goes into it. I hope you are able to achieve your goals, but I want to remind you of an important variable that you are forgetting. Real life. It is to be applied at a ratio if .5, so is therefore a very simple equation ;). I'm not trying to be negative, but I can almost promise that most of what you have figured here will not be achieved as expected. The HP and torque increases you stated for your engine for example, while they may actually prove true, as they are hopefully dyno proven, the real world gains will likely be half. Why? Because there are too many variables to account for when moving something this heavy, this wind resistant, and with this much drivetrain loss down the road. Real life ALWAYS kicks you in the ass. Anywho...I have blabbered enough. Definitely looking forward to watching your progress.
The journey is the destination...
