    Kyle Conner wanted to beat Alex Roy's NY to LA Record but when Ed Bolian beat it in 2013, he set his sights on a different idea. As Tesla gained notoriety and built out their supercharger network, the possibility of an Electric Vehicle Cannonball became possible.

        Another liberal idiot that doesn’t understand that it takes fossil fuels to produce electricity for the most part and, just where in hell does he think the minerals to produce the batteries comes from... land strip mines. Not so educated idiots !

            In the ev cannon ball is it legal to carry a generator in the vehicle?
            I would think of it as a fuel cell in the trunk for a gas vehicle or would it make the vehicle a hybrid?

                                          People will continue to attempt to break any and all of the Cannonball records until someone gets killed. Chances are the victim will not be one of the participants. It will be some poor unsuspecting motorist who will become collateral damage in the name of extreme, wasteful extravagance. That will be the end of it. To continue will result in felony charges and imprisonment. Its not the 70's any longer. Persist as it is at your peril.

                                              Over my time of watching about every single video on Vinwiki, I've always enjoyed the Canonball stories in all of their iterations. But because of the fractal nature of the stories from all, the rules or guidelines confuse me.

                                              There have been illusions to different starting and ending points and traditional vs alternate ending points. The attempts have covered many years and the way that an attempt's time and the way that it can be confirmed has likely changed.

                                              My question is:
                                              If somebody were to attempt this feat tomorrow, what would they need to do to avoid being called a liar or cheater or at least having some sort of astrick as part of my attempt for not following the original Yates unwritten model?

                                                      The new set u guys record is at the house right? Cuz it sounds like the landscaping company showed up at 10:05. But then again they probably been there a while already and they happened to be finished with the far side of the house and were doing final cleanup on the near side to the set cuz it doesny sound like a lawn mower or a weed wacker. It more sounds like the leaf blower actually. Especially the way the power acceleration rises and falls. And lawn mower power doesn't work that way. A weed wacker does but the motor sounds different as well as it has a different type of exhaust long w/ the exhaust sound is loud enough to mix with the sound of the weed wacker cutting. So u hear both. And a leaf blower motor is nowhere near the sound of the air intake and the expended <<<(rt word?) 🤷🏽🤷🏽 >>>> expended blower air sound so u hear the fluctuation of air not the sound of the motor. Smh i think im supposed to be between the ages of 50-80 (32) to not only pick up on that, but to also care enough to rewind it multiple times and what's even worse is the fact that im writong a damn comment about it. And lastly i took the time to care about analysing the sound to the point i broke down the individual sounds of other equipment and the motor sounds as well as application of the acceleration. And fyi i first thought it was the wife using a vaccume. That hypothesis lasted only to the second rewind and was quickly eliminated once a fluxuating motor speed was esablushed. Id say it would be eliminated due to it being a non electric motor but the leaf blower can very well be plugged into and extension cord and be electric and sound like that. Another 5 or so more playback i can establish that by listening for a possible idle sound. But from this point of useless analysis of something having nothing to do with the video info and a complete waiste of time and life and even more waist of time if u read this and even more waiste of time if u read this, play the video back at the listed time stamp and give a critical analysis of my analysis. So if u enjoy being a crotchety old man to point out useless information about backround noise as well as a pointless explanarion of the useless infotmation and reply to this extremely retarted comment. U then can be added into the mentally challenged video commentors of youtube club. U get a brown play button made out of human shit. Sometimes its green shit cuz we dont eat right and tend to live off ice cream and fruit snacks so some play buttons are green. And blue play buttons during xmas due to eating 100s pf blue candy canes. I think so much better and extremely more interesting variety of play buttons than a stupid gold or silver one. Fuggin stoopid. O wait im sstoopid so im the same as a gold play button "BONER" MORE TONS OF SHIT and ur still reading so more wasted time and wasted life. 😘😘😘 finally the fact that i chose to explain my stupidity aandbd the fact u are stupidly continuing to read this shows the lack of i.i.i.intellectual appplication of time well spent. Even tho we probably couldnt find the cure for cancer if we spent the 10_1% minites we just did watching and replaying that snippet, reading this comment as well as myself craating it, onto the replaying of snippet by the additoonal mental misfits, and creating an educated guess to show how uneducated we are analyzing pointlesseas infornation with zero value to too or two the world this video, this channel or chanel, and the creators creative creation (winning) was just put into question if they/them Themselves read this and replyed. Which would be amazong that we all chimed in to show the fact we actual relate on total diffwrent wavelengths other than that of cars ✈✈✈🎢🚢⛵🚤💺🛳🚆🚄🚈🚇🚝🚋 and that we just all seek out pointless things to analyze and come up with possible possibilitiesitiwa. And hopefully find ut that im a complete idiot abd should be locked up for life for making people dumber by listening, just like those who listened to billy madisons explanation of "how the industrial revolution changed the face of the modern novel forever, discuss citing specific examples". (Which i still dont understand the question nor do i know the answer in any way shape or form to this very day) thank you and your welcome for successfully waistinh time in your life if u chose to read any of this and a special dedication to those that read all tye way to right here..... Ur now dumber and already were a complete fucking idiot. Ur welcone and i love u. Muah!!!
