BronCobraJet 80 Posted July 23, 2010 Report Share Posted July 23, 2010 (edited) Why the HELL didn't this technology catch on? And why the hell isn't it plentiful now with Fuel Injection and Computer control? 1984. Pontiac Fiero. 4 cyl. 250 HP, 250 TQ, 51 MPG. (std Hp was 90 HP and 125 TQ, 35 mpg) Carb. No computer. They had the tech back then. All 3 (GM, Ford & Chrysler) built engines and cars and decided not to use it. Now GM is going to use it to meet CAFE standards. Assholes. Profit comes first. Tesla also had some very cool ideas and inventions, but got smothered by Edison, and lost in history, died broke. He was probably the smartest man that ever lived. Einstien had theories, Tesla had ideas and made them work. Nikola Tesla was a man way, way beyond his times. He should be hailed as a hero, greater than any one else on this earth, and should have his inventions (we all use some form of them daily) like the motors and such in use today. Where are the brilliant innovators like that today? The Hot Air engine was started in the '50s. Tesla was in the 1900's. Edited July 23, 2010 by BronCobraJet 4 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
