Subject: RE: BS: electric cars, when....?
I've had a BMW motorcycle. I remember being more comfortable in right hand 'banks' than left hand, but I don't think I can put it down to gyroscopic forces!

There have been and may still be flywheel temporary power systems, the presentation I saw over ten years ago was for an industrial quality unit, quite heavy of course, which could provide power to supply peak electrical demands. It was useful for a few minutes at most to accomplish what is called 'peak shaving'. As a means of mass automotive power, it is a non-starter, pun intended.
