"free from arcing, EMI, RFI and susceptibility to HPM weapons" I don't know about you, but getting to say that kind of stuff about your car would make you uber.
"High Powered Microwave (HMP) Weapons offer a significant capability against electronic equipment susceptible to damage by transient power surges. This weapon generates a very short, intense energy pulse producing a transient surge of thousands of volts that kills semiconductor devices. The conventional EMP and HMP weapons can disable non-shielded electronic devices including practically any modern electronic device within the effective range of the weapon."
I want to be able to walk away from that laughing.
Probability to happen? 1 in 5,000,000?
Having it thrown at you and you drive away laughing? Awesome.
I dunno, I think it would just make me feel like I was ahead of the game.
Is that the only part of the car that uses a semiconductor? I'm thinking that if some renegade badass has a crazy hpm (hpm, hmp, I dunno...) weapon, the wiring harness would be fine, but is there nothing else that would fail and kill the car? I'm not bashing by any means, I just don't know a damn thing about the electronics of our cars. Maybe I'll shut up and go read a book about it first. It is pretty James Bond-ish, so coolness factor gets a thumbs up.
Either way, good find. What do you think the price is? haha.
