Cyber Gearheads Prevail

Motor City Online was a MMOG created by Electronic Arts. It was probably the coolest. racing game. ever. Until EA pulled the plug because they wanted to focus their servers on The Sims, even after making people pay a monthly fee to play. People were not happy. Petitions were started. After a few years, the love for the game is still apparent. So what happens? A bunch of players decide to develop some open source code to create Motor World Online. You have to admit, the gearheads are cool even online.......

50 MPG and 0 to 60 sub four seconds

Hybrid supercar. The West Philadelphia High School Electric Vehicle Team has built a 300 hp hybrid car which gets 50 mpg on bio-diesel, accelerates from 0 to 60 in less than 4 seconds and looks sweet. That is a pretty nice high school project.
