This is a 5 page pdf only 65 KB. I could understand some of what they were talking about and I know very little on this subject. With what you have been thru in the last year, you should have a pretty good understanding of it. Interesting comparisons and graphs even if you don't use it.

Tell me how to get it to you and I will get it done.

Just noticed 2 separate visits from "Shanghai Kowin Automotive Components Co. Ltd" in the forkenswift.com traffic log.

First ever visitor I can recall seeing from China on any of my sites (that I monitor).

I sure hope we're not giving anyone any ideas for production vehicles!

Even with the censorship -- not bad! But yeah beware, they tend to take ideas and manufacture their own version (limited International patent enforcement). But -- if it helps keep them from buying a bunch of Cadillacs to reduce their Carbon footprint, then I guess "by all means".
