This thread was very refreshing to me as I thought I was alone in not ever joining facebook as I saw what it was from the very beginning. A tool to hate the people you once thought of as friends.

In radio control car racing, I've seen the power shift from gas/nitro motors to electrics in short order. Had everything to do with brushless motors and lithium polymer batteries.
Full size electric cars will have their day, just not yet.
"I want a car that can go 150 miles on a charge. The city I live in is a vast suburbia, and I want to be able to go to the other end of the city without having to charge to come back."
Exactly, and we must live in the same city.
