would it really make that much of a difference? What would it help with realistically, besides the claimed weight savings?

Wow, that's ironic; I was talking to my parents over dinner last night about doing something like this for my EE senior design project.

"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.

It's neat.

Boys and girls, the military is already utilizing this technology. You just haven't seen it yet.

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.
