Unfortunately, Vern Dernberger's coverage of the story was more about 
"the story" than the facts, so I'll be providing some additional photos 
and facts about the new drive system (hopefully) tomorrow.

Those rectangular thingys are pairs of 2x2" muffin fans in a homemade 
mounting bracket, used to keep air moving through the hull.  The EVs are 
sturdy enough to work without them, but it doesn't hurt to keep them a 
little cooler.  I'll post some closeups tomorrow.
