Holy ****! That's a GREAT IDEA!

If you add a motor to a wheelbarrow, that doesn't make it a motorbarrow, it makes it ridiculous.

All new corvettes are made of plastic. And they use LEAF SPRINGS, for crying out loud. Leaf springs were invented several hundred years ago.

Time to go back to school kid.

It looks like GM is smarter than you. Guess what, electricity is also really old but it sure is nice to have.

1. You're not supposed to post here unless you're a member.
2. The leaf spring dates from medieval times, no amount of refinement can make it seem modern.

1. If I'm not supposed to post here why can I post here.

2. You need do some reading. The independent double wishbone suspension supported by fiberglass cantilevered springs on the Corvette dates back to 1984. It happens to be the newest spring design used on any road car. Steal springs and air springs are all older by at least 100 years.

As I said, a refinement of a design does not make the design modern.

If I take a wheelbarrow and add mechanical brakes on it on it so it doesn't go out of control going down hills, it's not a new wheelbarrow. It's a refinement of a wheelbarrow.

But it isn't a refinement of an old idea. It's a very new design. It isn't a axle located by a leaf spring like a truck. It's a different way of doing double A-arms. They way the spring is used and the spring material didn't exist before the 1970s. The people who bash it are those who don't understand it.

mbolton, if you want to talk about Corevette design, please create a new thread about it.

Do not take up space here. Not only do most of us not appreciate it, you technically are not even allowed here.

Giving you a forum hasn't made you right. I've provided a resource to explain the thing. If you read it and can explain why it's wrong, well I guess you would be right. Otherwise, wouldn't you rather not put your name next to something that's just wrong?

I would be happy to but I don't think you would show up to justify your view.
You can justify your views in this thread...

THIS GROUP IS INVITE ONLY.
If you post here without being a member, the wrath of four ninjas will descend upon you.

I'm assuming the "four ninjas" are referring to the mods who monitor the thread, assuring that it's members only.

Also ES hasn't been on for days, someone else needs to step up.

And @ mbolton and Thrawn - Please take your discussion to the GD board, this really is the incorrect forum for this discussion. (Link)

Thanks in advance.

Enough on the subject in this topic mbolton or I will start getting way more harsh than I have been.
