ZH2 This Chevy is for real!
« on: September 11, 2017, 06:36:54 PM »
Chevy developed this fuel cell quiet/fast recon vehicle

Looks cool, but I wonder if it will stand up to testing???

Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel.

This is definitely more than just a Colorado with some cladding on it. Pretty cool.

I think you should call the contact guy here at Tardec Don. See if he'll loan it to you. Hey you have enough experience to know what would work in the field and what wouldn't. Of course when you walked back in and dumped a box of bolts, sheared suspension parts and other assorted stuff on his desk and tell him "it broke", he might regret letting you play with it. :grin:

warrant occifers cant do crap to anything as far as durability testing goes..................if you really want to see what its made of and if it can handle what its designed for, give it to a bunch of (army or marine) privates for a day or week............lol

I think Nates right, if you recall a story of Big D's with a Jeep that ended up on its lid. As if that's hard to do and actually tests anything...... :popcorn:

Ohhhh privates... they can find a way to break pretty much anything given the freedom (or lack of overwatch) it'll crumble! I'd bet Nate and Don and possibly bobby have all broken things as pvts or maybe they came in as PFCs...

How'd you know?
I actually started as a pfc!

I like the story told to me by a Marine sergeant

The Sergeant locks two marine privates in a room with two steel balls. An hour later the sergeant comes back to discover one ball is missing and the other one is broken, and nobody knows what happened!

If you give a private a little time and a feather he will break the horn off an anvil.

You guyses ever think about it?...Warrant Officers are the only rank which does not just start. We had to be something else (Got some experience first) before the transition to good looks and common sense street!
Privates came from high school
LT's came from college
