Well, regardless of some of the negative opinions posted here since this thread was started, a 'Biofuel RC Racing Demo' WILL be happening later this week at the Summer X Games here in LA. I have been involved with this project since it's start and Theo Captanis of Pacific Coast Hobbies has recently come on board to help conduct the demos...The entire promo was the idea of Global Inheritance.org, a non-profit group that constantly conducts lots of similar 'green awareness' type of programs.

More info here- http://www.globalinheritance.org/

Hopefully, there will be some brief RC coverage on EXPN during the multi-day event...

Do you drive a greaser or use biodiesel in your street car? If so I would be interested hearing about it. While the R/C car thing is cool, they are pretty much running on alternative fuel as it is. I have done some research into veggie oli and home bio productionand really want to get a car (full size)up and running. I just need the space!

Now we just need to convince the U.S. gov (at least CA gov.) that diesel (bio or not) is the future and to get off their asses and promote diesel technology. Gas/electric hybrids are not asolution. And E85 is the way U.S. auto makers can ignore their sever lack of diesel technology.

Anyway that is my rant. Viva diesel!

I plan to purchase a hybrid very soon, but since that's not a 'solution' in your opinion(which I disagree with), what am I to do? A friend recently purchased a 1984 converted Mercedes from Lovecraft here in LA and he has been pretty stoked with it so far...
