man kissing hybrid sign

These engineers in Tennessee have come up with their own hybrid system. I am constantly amazed at what engineers can come up with (I should be, I come from a long line of professional engineers). But, this idea is just awesome.

I hope that within 10 years, add-on hybrid kits are available for just about any car. They would only require at most 200lbs of weight – which is like one passenger (of my size). So, the weight is not an issue.

Just like grassroots racing helped advance technology by coming up with inventive ideas, perhaps grassroots hybrid conversions will move the industry forward by showing that low cost, simple systems can be quite effective.
