They use to use materials that we currently use.

I I ??????????????????????????????

"will it meet all the criteria for cost, mpg, capability, dependability, durability, etc.?

Yes. They already did it with the F150. Did you miss that?
Didn't miss a thing. Pulling g-forces isn't the same as pulling huge loads. I don't know why you don't get that. I didn't miss the durability testing on the half-ton, but also, in case you hadn't noticed, a half-ton and 1-ton are different beasts. Why don't you watch that video of the F150 pulling 15,000lb up a hill, about as quick as the Super Duty does it, but with more transmission clunking. Hey I'm not saying what you're asking for is impossible, but you are making ridiculous comparisons. As if a truck should have equal specific horsepower/torque per liter as a Lamborghini or F1 car. That's just stupid. Don't be stupid!

It's all in how you use the energy available. Fuel, heat, air and electricity. We are seeing the future now. It's been happening for decades. F1 starts the race with a full tank of fuel and they cannot get more. They are running faster and farther every year. Faster = higher G's.
I'm not asking for anything or anyone's approval. I am telling you and the others here - except Tseekins - he understands simple physics - what we see in F1 will happen everywhere.
