how springs are efficient ? how many charges and discharge a spring will bear until it looses some of its elasticity ?

I think that patents have already been taken out for a clockwork car I recall seeing an illustration in Arthur Mees children's encyclopedia you are in effect storing energy by compressing steel and it can easily be shown that in terms of Joules stored per kilogram this is a pretty pore storage medium.my design is an unlimited stage solution , the designs linked are whether few stages or they are imaginary and do not work , the only solution for an unlimited stage clockwork is the solution stated in my invention. think of a clockwork of only one stage and very high ratio , you will end up with a gear of say 1 Km long!! which is not practical or a clockwork with many stages each stage is of small ratio , this won't move and will need ultra high energy. a clockwork of small ratio or few stages is useless, how long it will move a car ? 1 Km ? if it is used for energy storage, how long it will take to discharge completely , 1 minute ? an unlimited stage clockwork can last very long , and can move a car very long distances, and can replace petrol engines for a cleaner world.
I think the best medium to store energy by compression is Helium gas and this has been used in some weapons all this talk about gear ratios is pretty irrelevant
I want to build a huge one and use it for a car , or ultra huge one to store solar panel electricity by motors and convert it to electricity again by generators. could it replace batteries ?
There are several very good reasons why clock and watchmakers no longer use it.
you can think of science as a description for how that intelligence directs the physical world.I like this expression . I think so , but I thought this intelligence won't be achieved by a planetary model. may be I should post this thread hundred years ago.
