    Well the facts are easy to me. I don't guess.

    Okay, that's Ford. This is Mercedes. Older and wiser, than ford.

    I suspect that this was done because it is probably just an electric train with the pantograph removed and fuel cells added. Doing it that way means the bulk of the engineering is done and can share parts with existing electric trains.

    And the tanks are Kevlar and something material tanks so they are relatively lightweight enough to put on top. I would think?

    Possibly. There’s a ton of weight below, so I don’t think tipping is a problem. As long as the roof can support the weight, it’s probably all good.

    The Mirai uses Kevlar tanks for weight. The other material I can't seem to find.

    I always thought this thread was a circle-jerk.

    Now I know it.

    Why aren’t you buying that truck you posted for $75K? How long are you going to wait for the max pack? Buy the truck now and sell it if the max pack ever comes out. Or is waiting your shtick?

    1. Get called a jackoff.
    2. Try to use getting called a jackoff as ammo against being called a jackoff.

    You truly are a jackoff.
