That's awesome. I'm all for it as long as there's no hybrid tech in that one. I don't mind the turbos

It's heavier and more complicated. You know how people say they refuse to own BMWs out of warranty? I'm not one of them. I DIY as much as I can in my garage. Heck, I've never owned a car with a warranty in my entire life!

Hybrid and electric cars are not something that I can learn how to work on. Maybe in the future, but not right now.

not to mentione there's enough electricity to kill you if you manage to touch one of the wrong bright orange wires!

Yes, hence why all wires on hybrids are color coded. There's alot of volts there.

Wouldn't you have to cut one? Should be fairly well insulated I would guess.

NSX has been in the plans for even longer than that! Since 2007.

They also did what Toyota did with the LFA. They built a race car first....

Incorrect (well, except for the guns thing, so long as it has ammo...). Voltage DRIVES current (amps).

Your body has about 1 MegaOhm of resistance. 1 kV across your heart drives 1 mA of current, which can stop your heart and kill you.

You can grab onto leads with 1000 A and 100 volts and you would be absolutely fine, though a bit tingly.

Physics...good stuff.

So can I lick a hybrid engine drunk or not?

I'm just learning this stuff, but thought voltage is just electrical potential, and needs to be realized via some mechanism, conductance, and that current/amperes is what actually does the damage as that's the kinetic vs. potential of the electrical energy. Thought its like standing at the top of a building is potential, but does nothing till you jump and convert it into kinetic...am I wrong? And yes! Physics is awesome!
