    That's the conclusion I've reached.

    The possibilities were:
    • HA doesn't like to admit he made a mistake - but, why would he keep the thread going?
    • HA is amongst the stupidest people in Britain - but, he manages to use the internet and type in sentences?
    • HA doesn't believe that physics is a "thing" - but, does he strike anyone here as the "healing powers of crystals" type?
    • HA is just winding us up - yeah, reckon so.

    Were you never tempted to stick a windmill in the hole? I mean it just makes sense.

    if only I'd known then what I know now after reading this thread
  18. Listen up, folks.

    You have a car. It has a certain CofD. It ain't perfect, but it's good. You make it a wee bit better by forming a ducted hole right through it from front to back, or possibly from the front to the sides.

    All good so far? Cool.

    Ok, it's now a teeny bit better - aerodynamically-speaking - than it was before the duct was made.That's good - it's an improvement.

    Now we fit a small turbine in that duct. That has brought the CofD back to almost what it was before, but not quite - it's still fractionally better than it was before the duct was fitted.

    So, it's still BETTER than without the duct AND it generates a small amount of leccy TOO.

    That's a double win-win whammy.

    Think I prefer alloys and go faster stripes
  20. If you were to fit a generator to your alloy wheel, you'd gain some power.
