Re: I Smoked a Porsche at a Stoplight Today!

There have been VERY few instances where I've beaten another driver off the line. Those instances only included other drivers who were not expecting/anticipating a race off the line and were very late to the throttle, or other cars that looked/sounded like they'd probably cough up a lung if their d...

Re: i Miev Hauling a Trailer Range Test

Thanks for posting this! useful information for sure. Curious though, as I could not tell by the angles of the video shots etc. How does the width of your trailer stack up with the width of the i-MiEV? Do you perhaps have a straight on pic from the front or rear? Even better . . . measurements? Aero...

Re: Stop that key-reminder noise and lose 6 [edit: 8] lbs fast!

Well, I got my answer. I love the idea of weight reduction, however with the already moderate rear weight bias of approximately 150 pounds; I would seek to try and remove an even greater amount of weight from the rear. How that would be accomplished, I haven't the faintest idea. I have inspected th...

Re: Hatched a Tesla

Everyone has an opinion about battery maintenance, however a balanced pack is a happy pack. I agree! A pack should be balanced periodically. Monthly is a good rule of thumb. And since the balancing can't always complete because the highest cell often triggers the end of charging. I think it is a ve...

Re: Duosida EVSE

People keep bringing up these issues, that lead to questions, that I hadn't thought of (like what is the max charge rate on 120V?). Once the question is in my head, curiosity nags me until I get the answer. Sometimes I wish I could get a curiosityectomy :?

Re: Duosida EVSE

I have a juice box 40. The old one which has adjustable 120vac amperage (8 to 16). I opened it up and turned it up from 12 amps to the max (which is supposed to be 16amps). Using canion and a kilowatt meter to corroborate it's results. Starting at 50% SOC so there wouldn't be any interference from a...

Re: Regen vs Neutral and speed for max range

Brief update: using SoC over this short stretch doesn't work, as both CaniOn and EVBatMon only show a 0.5% resolution, which doesn't change over the course of this downhill, using either technique. Will keep trying to see if Wh/km is doable, as controlling the amount of energy going into the car du...

Re: Regen vs Neutral and speed for max range

I like to analyze things qualitatively and then quantify it if needed. Why? simply because it is easier. So just as a suggestion, I would tackle evaluating your descent more simply first. Record SOC at the top and the bottom and also record Wh/km at the bottom for each case. Then compare them and se...

Re: Mitsubishi website

I think they were at first given the pre-launch hype, and the fact that the i-MiEV was available to purchase in all 50 states put it well above compliance car status. I think they lost faith after seeing poor initial sales and hearing what the "professional" car reviewers had to say about...
