    Back in the early 90's I was working with a guy that had put together an electric/magnetic dragster that was running about 130 mph at mid 9's in the quarter mile. Not bad for a shadetree project. Back then, it seems like an eternity ago, people just laughed. Now if I only stayed with them, what would I be doing now.

    The biggest problem then was the contactors, that were available then, were unable to handle the amperage and would cut in and out during the run.

    There is no free lunch.
    The first 3 clips were either scams or self-delusion.
    The last clip didn't work for me.

    Hard to make much sense of any of these. To the extent they're saying they get more energy out of these engines than they put it, it's crap. Folks have been make those kinds of claims for years with different gizmos. Never pan out.

    Think it has something to do with the laws of physics--conservation of energy.
