yeah, but you still need some form of engine to compress the air in the first place....
but when u think how much we could reduce pollution, global warming ect ect, this could be massive.........

and i would say in years to come.... someone would make a dyno from said engine to compress its own air.... or have a motor driven by sunlight or another greener form...

its a drop in the ocean, but when you think about how far it could be taken forward...................

maybe not massive bhp ect but when we are saving our planet....
it all makes sense..

Isn't that essentially a perpetual motion machine then? make that and you'll beat physics as we know it!

time to do some research then.....

how about electric motors....as in antigravity engines...been done!!

and they are out there. electrostatic motors.... do some yourself, if a was capapble, i would build one for the bug...

It's all bollox.

Sure it runs on compressed air, but as has been pointed out, you need to put a lot of energy in to compress the air.

There's no such thing as a free lunch in physics and the energy needed to compress the air would be used more efficiently if you ran the buggy with the motor from the compressor and throw the air motor away.
