    I guess that's the difference between you and me...I'm gonna drive my next Tesla and you're going to be looking for your next toilet paper resources.

    I have to admit that is a pretty reliable model until that company earns its first profit and then it's a whole new ballgame.
    June 12th sweetie and then you'll be gone from this board looking for another green company.

    Dear emmetrush, did your parents hate you so much that they gave you such a name?

    Mine obviously did with me.

    Now that I have your attention, here's the difference between you and me: 1. You're primarily interested in earning a profit where as I am interested in the Steve Jobs perspective...change the world while earning a profit. Changing the world comes first and profit will follow if you're successful and Capstone Turbine will find that success.

    You have to admit that the Capstone Microturbine is a marvel, performing its intended duty for such an extended period time with minimal maintenance, no lubricating oil, no coolant or radiator.

    My prognostications waiting to come true will do just that. You see, I am also a time traveler and have seen these same equations before. The outcome is always the same. Better ideas and products always find acceptance by a world looking for a better solution and a cheaper one. I'm talking cheaper over the long run.

    By the way, I'm awfully close to having to file a SEC Form 13F.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Right...no batteries.

    The electric generator, power inverter and propulsion module in the electric drive system replace traditional mechanical components such as a torque converter and transmission. The Cat C9.3 engine with ACERT Technology turns a powerful electric generator that efficiently converts mechanical energy into AC electrical current. Electrical current from the generator flows through specially armored cables and military grade connectors to a solid-state power inverter. Advanced electronics send AC current to the propulsion module to control the motors and provides DC current for the accessory systems. The propulsion module delivers well-modulated torque via axles to the final drives. Consisting of state-of-the-art AC electric motors - and connected to the D7E updated differential steering system - the propulsion module has no moving electrical contacts and few moving mechanical parts. All electrical components are fully sealed to safely operate in a wide range of dozing conditions. Liquid cooling ensures that the electric drive components deliver peak performance in extreme temperature conditions. The D7E electric drive system is highly efficient at delivering engine power to the ground. Infinitely variable speed control, means there are no gears to shift. Operators can concentrate on the task and the job site, rather than on shifting gears and managing engine speed. Training is simplified as well. A proven differential steering system combines with electric drive to make the D7E the only system that can perform locked-track pivot turns for better maneuverability. A dedicated D8-size steering pump delivers improved performance.

    Gets traction for the cappy equipped vehicle. He doesn't care if it turns into black ice after he's gone.

    I totally agree.
    I'm curious how long it will take Wrightspeed to get the Fulcrum into production because he's now got commitments to keep with FedEx and the Ratto Group.

  • doggoneuanyhow doggoneuanyhow May 23, 2015 1:29 PM Flag

    The Fulcrum is just a prototype; one of a kind.
    Ian Wright hasn't the means to mass produce it yet. He got turned down in his request for a California Energy Grant for the Fulcrum assembly line. He may have to take Wrightspeed public to raise the money he needs to go forward.

    Wow, that's a really lame assessment of Cappy's resources.

    They had $10 Million when they did the dilution in May of 2014 and that added $30 Million in cash. Cash burn has been about $3.00 Million a year so they have $28 Million if my numbers are correct.
    I reckon that if the Wrightspeed deal is now in jeopardy, DJ will return that money to shareholders by buying back 36 Million shares @ $.52 if he can pull it off. If you remember, he sold those shares for $1.70 last May, 2014. There is no SEC requirement that management publicize the buyback.

    I bring an exciting news story to the board and I get two thumbs down? It must be Sterno and that idiot Turnip Blossom.

    Did I mention regenerative braking during descent? Yes, during coasting or descent, the electric motors actually charge the batteries. Also, maximum torque from electric motors from a dead stop will get you airborne quickly.

    Impressive!
    But why not go with a Capstone Microturbine from the get go?
    Maximum torque from a dead stop with electric traction drive. Even Caterpiller has developed the D7E dozer which uses electric motors and a diesel range extender. They'll probably change that to a turbine one day because it eliminates the exhaust after treatment.

    That's the $69,000 question. I'm sure we'll find out, eventually.
    Wasn't ALTI given the real estate for its China manufacturing facility? I guess that has to figure into the numbers.

    Think about Class 7 & 8 trucks, garbage trucks, snow plows, school busses in the dead of winter with a Capstone range extender and directional exhaust. Point it up during fair weather and down at the pavement just ahead of the drive wheels in winter so as to melt the snow and ice.

    "Companies (especially CPST) don't shelve stock for no reason ..."

    The previous shelf was expiring. That's the reason.

  • Check out the video. All kinds of possibilities here for a range extender. You don't want range anxiety while flying an airplane.

    Google the title; look for article published by Inside EVs.

    DJ's buying back all he can at this price. Gonna retire 36 Million shares and reduce the outstanding shares to 294 Million insuring profitability. Good spread...$1.70 to $.52.

    Delisting or reverse split is at least 6-months away.

    Question:
    What is being done to remedy your Deficient status, under the Continued Listing Requirements for NASDAQ?

    Answer from Capstone Management:
    Capstone has been in contact with Nasdaq representatives and continues to have a dialog on potential remedies. If Capstone fails to meet the full eligibility requirements for the Nasdaq Global Market and is not granted an extension from Nasdaq representatives, then Capstone can file an application to transfer from the Nasdaq Global Market to the Nasdaq Capital Market. This transfer would give Capstone an additional 180 days to trade above the minimum $1.00 threshold.

    A reverse stock split would be considered as the final remedy if required. However, a reverse stock split requires stockholder approval and would need to be approved at the annual meeting or at a special meeting of stockholders.
