Short video on YouTube.  I think some members of C5alive are on it - if you blink you will miss it though.

If you see wallace and grommet, there was an invetor of an electric motor, claims 93% efficiency -wow! Entered the TT with 2 bikes got 2nd and forth against all the big players.

Worship us a wooden shed, you just had ti see his post drill, holding the work with a foot and hand driven, another geius but way way out there.

Siir Clive also appeared, talking about he should have prepared the public before launching the C5, he might have checked weather forecast snd inclinometer  to ;).

U would live to meet and talk with him, he certainly thinks outside if the box. Wonder why his motor has nit been bought up and given the finance it deserves?

And would he make one for a C5 he had one in the garden undress the ivy :)

if you want to see the full episode which is highly worth it, go o BBC iplayer, look for wallace and grommet.

mind you i do wory about Wallace's state of mind,  in the openning sequece, no risk assesment undertaken, slides down a tube, gives himself a wedgy, then some masacistic under arm hair removal takes place :o

 ;D ;D ;D

I've met Cedric , he is a really nice bloke to chat with and probably one of the most intelligent blokes walking the planet - no wonder the investors in India are courting him. Apparently he was very badly stitched up business-wise over here ,which is a real shame. Yet another excellent British invention now being funded by foreign investment  :-[
