Default Re: Happy Time Electric Starter/Generator Question...

In trying to use a CVT, I was thinking a wheel like a friction drive, but only starts the motor. Still pop start so is not what you had in mind. But instead of pulling the wheel off the rear tire, let it turn a generator? Just typing out laud. Would be a geared arm with apposing cogs to start the motor with an idler sprocket. After motor starts, let it run an alternator.

2 complicated and costly. Gonna build it anyway. LOL
worst apocalypse ever
