    Is it April First yet?

    And speaking of April First, I keep thinking that the way to power an EV is to have an electrified overhead roof over our roadways and power your vehicle like they do with bumper cars in an amusement park. That way you could have a really good power to weight ratio and wouldn't need to talk about batteries and BMS boards any more.

    ...yeah, somehow April Fools Day and my (ex) boss seemed like a good fit.

    Should be getting the motor in from Motenergy for the tractor story tomorrow. It's a motor that John designed specifically for this application, it's just like an ME0708, except with double brushes and a 1" output shaft so it fits the stacked pulleys most of those tractor/mowers have.

    I have far too much real work to do to waste my time at that FOOLISH place.

    Saturday at Teds was a hoot. I'm not sure which was more fun -- blasting the bike around his neighborhood or the lawn tractor around the yard!*
    Teds bike is even better in person and it looks great in photos. It's super light and has the character of a proper little race bike.

    Today I was wishing the school would follow Ted's example and convert all those loud, giant lawn mowers to electric. I hate hearing those things while walking around campus.
