    Ah, Goodyear's PR department has been busy...

    That's a clever design. Hub-less wheels tend to be really heavy in human-size scales, so I don't know how well this would work "full size", but for a model, that's neat.

    At some point in the future it will probably be mandated that all HBA members get a brain implant that gives them an ice cream headache every time they type "flying car" or "roadable."

    What makes you think that someone did any analysis of straightforward issues.
    Just keep watching the video on auto-rewind and all answers will come to you........:roll:
