Yeah, you got to be careful or you will have a flux energy overload. Significant risk of a fire with those early models.

The garden grade ones did, but the deluxe model (and the guy I bought it from said that it was surely deluxe) ran on Livermorium, a much heavier and more expensive element. In fact, this model's fuel hadn't even been discovered yet at that time... how avant guarde is that!

Sure wish I could get the manual... I can't wait to fire it up!!!

Call me old school but I don't think flux capacitors have any place on a sail boat.

The Professor explained prior to it's first trip that the 'plutonium' he used to fuel would be used up in one trip and an alternative source would have to be sourced for the return trip.

It's simply not practical to source Unobtanium from Pandora in any case

I normally obtain unobtanium on Ebay. However, it's just for my car.

Jim

I can totally get you one, but it's the last one.
So, if you send me $100.00 bucks I'll mail you the one I have.
