ROFL pure semantic pc drivel...the mirage drive is a nice unit, very clever..but to say it either cannot be improved on, or criticized is an Orwellian mindset thet I WILL NOT adhere to.
Thank You Citizen No.76534-098-0009
Sorry, but I think there must be some missunderstanding here.
I am quiete sure you did not get my point and most certain I did not get yours.
"to say it either cannot be improved on, or criticized", I have not said anything like this or meant to.
I have two things to say, one about this forum, and one about the mirage drive.
This forum is a bit sensitive to criticism about Hobies. Not surprisingly. A fact I have noted myself. But people here are very helpful and make sincere efforts to explain how to overcome problems. I, personally, think it is a bit unpolite to post a blury comment like the treadstarter as a first post in this forum. It makes me suspect that this is an intended "fart" in the "Hobie-church".
Ie a troll. And a perfect attack! As my smiley indicated. I see it just as a joke.
The mirage drive should be compared to a paddel in the same hull.
When you do that, you should experience greater speed with less effort.
But it is not entirely correct. Because if you get greater speed you also burn more calories even if it FEELS like less effort.
In the end the question is:
Do "whitewater" need any help or is he just a joker?
