These guys: http://ecatcar.org seem bent on making the first LENR car.
However, they seem to be intent on making an electric car with an LENR trickle-charger. Is their approach going to fly? Would they be better off putting in more LENR power, and driving the car directly from the LENR’s heat? I still think that the steam engine, such as those provided by cyclonepower.com are the way to go. With the steam engine, they can eliminate the transmission. But in addition to that, the heat store in the steam engine can act as an energy buffer smoothing out hills and passing speed.
It just seems good sense to me to have an LENR -> Steam -> wheels cycle, rather than an LENR -> steam/stirling -> generator -> battery store (heavy) -> electric motor -> wheels.
What say ye.
