Yep. He's also recently done a hybrid version by adding a Honda Generator that he can remove for the race, but use for driving around town.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
And you can guarantee that that fiber can't be tapped between the end points? Just because a network is isolated from the Internet doesn't mean it's completely secure.
It won't be necessary to tap the fiber. Some moron will plug their smartphone in to their computer to charge it and that will be the end of the airgap.
Yeah, you're right. Contractor started out that way, but did NOT make it into production that way.
I do know of a homebrewed race car that runs that way......he once wired it wrong in an experiment and did a quarter mile in 9.2, completely emptying a 3kwh battery pack.
Yes. Of course, I bought mine second hand- I let the first owner pay for their "clever programming".
I do note that many of my wished for hacks *did* eventually appear, in the 2012 model year, with a variety of body types.
And that we're now down to about $3000 for the plug in and additional battery capacity modification. Parts anyway, labor extra.
I won't beleaguer the point, but you need to be slapped on the ass with a dictionary.

Sorry, how were you going to beseige, trouble or harass the point about needing to be slapped on the ass with a dictionary? I'd like to see how that works.
The Dodge Ram Contractor is built that way- plus it's a full size, full power pickup truck that provides 48KW 120 volt outlets on the remote jobsite.
1) That might be part of my problem- I have had trouble to adjusting to the "light touch" needed for proper prius hypermiling video game playing. I have always been a bit of a leadfoot, and so I do have a problem with rabbit starts.
3) Yeah, that's probably the reasoning. I use it in 25 to 35 zones all the time though, and it really increases my mileage numbers, but that's related to my comment 1 above.....
7) that would take a heck of a jumper cable to deliver the 273 volts and who knows how many amps to spin M1.
And thanks to looking that up, I found this Emergency Response guide which does not say what to do if you run out of gas in a prius.
Here's a bit on what a hassle bricking a prius by running out of fuel + electricity is- nobody in America has done it yet, but I could easily see somebody accidentally leaving the car turned on when parking it (I've done it myself) in which I give it about a week before it's dead.
Yes, all videos should have a volume control/mute function. Same as with the autoplay horror, those of us who actually work on the site agree with you and will keep hammering on management until it gets done.
To the rest of the human race. After all, most people are on ISIS hit list if you understand their theology.
"imagine the next Star Wars movie where Jedi prefer blasters"
Funny, I saw that last night in the Disney Star Wars Rebels Cartoon. A Padawan who actually built a blaster into his lightsaber- so that he had both ranged and hand-to-hand weaponry.
DS9, bad as it was, did a MUCH better job of showing the implications of Utopia, especially in the Sisko-extended-family story line.
Maybe, maybe not, but nothing about using Linux (FTFY) forces your URLs to be sequentially numbered.
This hack sounds a lot like the one that Weev used to extract info from AT&T. Apparently, GoPro didn't learn from AT&T's mistakes.
