Given the numbers of muscle car fans and builders I believe we may see a surprising number of
Pattinson/Reeves replica Batmobiles.
Especially with the availability of the 1/10th scale Mattel RC model and after the Batman movie in 2022. vertigo

Placed a coy of this post here for anyone who might be planning to and/or actually building a bat vehicle.
A few points on battery operated power tools I learned from experience.

(1) Stick with the major and most used brands. Dewalt and Milwaukee are the top two followed by Makita.

(2) Try to buy most of your battery powered tools from one brand and try to purchase your additions so they
are compatible with each other in power and battery sizes.

(3) Avoid cheap tools in this category if you plan to do much work with them.

(4) Buy your first two tools with batteries and charger. That will give you a backup charger.

(5) Buy additional tools without batteries/charger (bare tools) You will save 60%.

(6) Batteries: A few batteries can power a lot of tools. 5 AH batteries provide good balance of weight to power

(7) Batteries: BUY ONLY BRAND NAME BATTERIES.
All the after market batteries sold on Amazon, eBay, etc. don't work.
They are all rip offs. Seen a lot of unhappy people over the years that bought after market batteries.

(8) Buy your battery tools and batteries during Christmas and/or fathers day. 25-30 percent off most places.

(9) Compare Amazon prices to before purchasing your battery tools and batteries. Usually 20-35% cheaper
than Home Depot.

As for my own current battery tool situation:
I have 15 or so Dewalt 18-20V tools that were mostly purchased as bare tools. (Bare tools don't come with batteries and cost around 40% of the tools when they come with battery/batteries and a battery charger.)
Never had a bad one.
I decided on using mostly Dewalt because I wanted to run them all on the same batteries. 20V 5 AH batteries.

I also have a Dewalt 20V hedge trimmer and their 12" chainsaw. (one charged battery will make more than 125 cuts in 4" diameter wood.

Chainsaw bought as a bare tool (no battery or charger) cost me 145.00 delivered from Amazon.

These twelve 20V batteries power all my Dewalt 18-20V tools.
I have six 20V 5 AH batteries
Two 20V 6AH batteries
Four 20V 2AH batteries
For my older 18V dewalt tools I have have plug in 18 to 20V conversion adapters.

Note: There are other higher AH 20V batteries but are bigger and heavier, and cost 150.oo to 200.oo each.

Placed a copy of this research posting from the University of Michigan for anyone planning to and/or actually building a bat vehicle.

Excellent overview on getting the most useful life from lithium batteries.

"Tips for extending the lifetime of lithium-ion batteries"
February 17, 2020

ANN ARBOR—Lithium-ion batteries are everywhere these days, used in everything from cellphones and laptops to cordless power tools and electric vehicles.

And though they are the most widely applied technology for mobile energy storage, there’s lots of confusion among users about the best ways to prolong the life of lithium-ion batteries.

To help clarify, University of Michigan researchers plowed through scores of academic papers and manufacturers’ user manuals, as well as information on customer-support websites, to develop a list of nine best practices for lithium-ion battery lifetime extension.

“By minimizing exposure to the conditions that accelerate degradation, batteries can last longer. And this has a positive environmental impact, as battery production is a source of greenhouse gas emissions and many other pollutants,” said study senior author Greg Keoleian, director of the U-M Center for Sustainable Systems at the School for Environment and Sustainability.

“Additionally, there are significant financial incentives for users to avoid adverse conditions, as the cost of lithium-ion batteries can range from 5% to over 50% of a product’s cost.”

The U-M team’s findings were published Feb. 15 in the Journal of Energy Storage.

Many of the recommended practices are related to the three main variables that impact battery health: temperature, state of charge and current.

Tips for extending lithium-ion battery lifetime in power tools.

Avoid temperature extremes, both high and low, when using or storing lithium-ion batteries. Elevated temperatures can accelerate degradation of almost every battery component and can lead to significant safety risks, including fire or explosion.

Minimize the amount of time the battery spends at either 100% or 0% charge. Both extremely high and low “states of charge” stress batteries. Consider using a partial charge that restores the battery to 80% SoC, instead of 100%. If that’s not possible, then unplug the device as soon as it reaches 100%.

Using “fast chargers” is convenient but will degrade a lithium-ion battery more quickly than standard charging. Discharging a battery too quickly also leads to battery degradation, through many of the same mechanisms.

Some manufacturers of cordless power tools advise users not to store batteries in the charger, while others caution against running down the battery completely. A few recommend a minimum ambient temperature of 32 F when charging the battery, and a maximum of 104 degrees.

Avoid use or storage of lithium-ion batteries in high-moisture environments, and avoid mechanical damage such as puncturing.

There are two main forms of battery degradation: capacity fade and power fade. Capacity fade is a decrease in the amount of energy a battery can store, and power fade is a decrease in the amount of power it provides."

Received an email today stating,
"I am designing a stretched and modified frame for a bat mobile. What is easiest way to make the frame more ridged and less effected by torque and bending?

The "easiest way to make the frame more ridged and less effected by torque and bending", also known as, twisting loads and vertical/horizontal bending, is to add X s and angles.

A photo-image is worth a thousand words as the one I have attached demonstrates.

A good way to figure out where to add the X s and angles is to draw out your frame on paper and then analyze the frame for points of compression, tension, and torque. Then mark the directions of these forces with arrows.

Received an email today stating,
"I am designing a stretched and modified frame for a bat mobile. What is easiest way to make the frame more ridged and less effected by torque and bending?

Another way to analyze the frame for the above characteristics is to build a model frame from light weight cardboard, Styrofoam, and/or balsa wood and then apply twisting loads and vertical/horizontal bending loads.
I personally like to model cut frames around 1/6th scale and parts from Styrofoam, glue them together, then apply forces.

There are also CAD and other programs that can be used to model structural forces. Some are very expensive, other with free trials, while others are free.
The learning curves for these programs are hundreds of hours and higher. vertigo

www.autoevolution.com/news/robert-pattinson-s-new-batmobile-sees-action-for-the-first-time-in-latest-batman-trailer-177804.html

40 seconds of fast-paced action that show the Batmobile in all its might. At some point in the trailer, we get a glimpse of Bruce Wayne’s black 1963 Corvette Stingray and we see where the inspiration for the Batmobile came from.

"The latest trailer for The Batman movie, called "The Bat and the Cat,” starts right in the middle of the action, with the Batmobile in pursuit of one of the bad guys, no doubt. It’s our first chance to see the new car in action after the film director Matt Reeves shared some pictures of it online.

We’re talking about 40 seconds of fast-paced action that show the Batmobile in all its might. At some point in the trailer, we even get a glimpse of Bruce Wayne’s black 1963 Corvette Stingray and we see where the inspiration for the Batmobile came from.

The latest Batmobile is a mid-engine machine with muscle-car cues that looks salvaged from a scrapyard for a second life as a crime-fighting vehicle. Unlike many other Batmobiles before, this looks less like a tank and more like a car, which is surprising considering what it has to withstand during the chase in the trailer.

The engine at the back is exposed, showing a monstrous V-configuration that looks more like two complete engines bonded together. What’s missing is an exhaust system, but we guess Batman couldn’t be bothered with emission-testing of his car."

The Batman Is the longest Batman movie ever made.

The Robert Pattinson-The Batman has an official runtime of 176 minutes (2-hours and 56 minutes) with credits.

If you are going to see it in the theater you might want to take a pre-movie bathroom break and skip the extra-large soda during the movie.

Director Reeves of "The Batman" dropped a bit of information during an interview with Esquire on how the 2022 bat mobile came to be.

Reeves
"Also envisioned this time was a more realistic gear. The Batcave is based on a real-world abandoned subway station in New York City, while the Batmobile takes an even deeper inspiration. “The Nolan films established the Batmobile as a tank, which was a brilliant idea,” said Reeves. “But I thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool if this guy is a loner and a gearhead and fashioning these things by himself, taking parts of other cars and kit cars?’ So it’s recognizable as a car this time. But it’s like a muscle car. One that he’s made himself.”

Wouldn’t it be cool if this guy is a loner and a gearhead and fashioning these things by himself, taking parts of other cars and kit cars?

Received an email today asking,
"Is anyone building a 1:1 Pattison Street legal replica batmobile?"

I have not seen any photo-image proof of replica Pattinson batmobiles but there are rumors that there are at least two, probably more, builds that are currently taking place.

One in Brazil.

One in USA at a custom car builder for the Gumball 3000 2022 RALLY

Apply for the 2022 Rally Toronto to Havana 27 May - 3 June.

Next event Toronto to Havana (May 2020) *postponed because of COVID-19*
Activity Motor rally
Website Gumball3000.com
The Gumball 3000 is a collection of companies that includes an apparel brand, a registered charity, and is best known for an annual 3,000-mile (4,800 km) international celebrity motor rally, which takes place on public roads. The name comes from the 1976 movie The Gumball Rally. It was established in 1999 by Maximillion Cooper with his vision to combine cars, music, fashion and entertainment.

Since its establishment, the road rally has featured a number of notable drivers, such as Lewis Hamilton, Deadmau5, David Hasselhoff, Xzibit, Usher and Tinie Tempah. The rally changes the start and finishing point every year, with some rallies requiring travel by air to make the start and finish points. The start and finish points are normally notable cities, with London being a common stop-off due to the Gumball 3000's British founder.

The event gained headlines when two members of the public were killed, after their car was hit by an entrant who was speeding on public roads in the Republic of North Macedonia in 2007. The event has also been known to run into issues in certain countries. In the Netherlands participants had a number of cars confiscated. At other rallies, drivers have been pulled over for speeding, with a small number losing their driving licenses.

Rally format
The Gumball 3000 Rally takes on average 120 drivers, each year across countries and continents on a 3000-mile journey. Travelling on public roads in exotic cars and attending parties each night, for 7 days per year the entrants of the rally receive an exclusive rally experience. The rally was founded in 1999 by current CEO Maximillion Cooper, initially as a road trip with his friends. Organizers strongly emphasize that the 3000 is a road trip and in no way a race.
