you get a car and you strip it. make it as light as you can. you just keep the four wheels.
then you attach a horse to it. maybe two if you want to go faster.
then you use reigns to steer.
its not as fast as a car, but the maintenance is cheap, and the horses can feed on grass.
the energy is free. the horses do all the work.
anything we do has to be modelled on nature. we extract energy from relatively little food.
i think magnets, super conductors and specially built frictionless roads to drive on is the future.
nuclear energy can supply the power cheaply, magnets provide lift and super conductors provide a resistance free transfer of energy so it'll be nearly 100% efficient, keeping costs to pennies on the mile.edit on 3-10-2012 by randomname because: (no reason given)

Even if this did work,I don't see how its free energy.
Even you yourself said you need to charge it first.

As well, with this railgun, why build it? So you can be the man with bigger stick? What is it's purpose besides destructive means?
