Re: SF South Bay to Capitola (Over 1800ft Summit) Trip Data

You go Joe! What sort of datalogging equipment are you using. I've been meaning to make a serious effort at the Speedbox app, which logs speed and altitude, and put a CT around the motor input for logging amps.

Re: eDifferential motor/differential combo for EV

:? Wow, that's a lot more complex than I imagined a fixed-gear reduction unit would be! No clue on the parking pawl yet.

Re: CUSTOMIZATION FUNCTIONS M.U.T.-III ETACS Horn, Buzzer..

More Great Digging, John! Now if you can find how to reprogram the acceleration ramp rate, I'd be happy to send a bottle of Washington's finest vintage your way! (your choice, but I'd suggest Syncline Seduction) I want an instantaneous 47 kW, not whenever i gets around to it! :idea: Of course, I nev...

Re: Reserve/Receive Dates

For anyone who wants immediate delivery or can't claim the tax credit, my silver ES model with cold weather package and interior LEDs is available for purchase. It does not have CHAdeMO, and I wanna trade up. :mrgreen: Please PM for further discussion. Total mileage as of today is 1882, and the car ...

Re: Extended test drive - Extended Range EV (i took home a V

Back in my i, so here's a couple of closing notes on the Volt. In most every way, the Volt's a lot more car, and I was impressed. They seem quite conservative with the battery usage, as though I drove it down until the engine was running anytime I was moving more than about 3 mph, a full recharge on...

Re: Mitsubishi i Battery Pack and Under Hood

Here's another one under the trunk of the Mitsubishi i http://www.popularmechanics.com/cm/popularmechanics/images/ir/imiev_16_0510-lg.jpg Why does it look different than the one above? Is it production vs pre-production or something? I think you're right. My i looks just like Mitchell's.

Re: Extended test drive - Extended Range EV (i took home a V

Whoa Joe, don't get me wrong- I'm only flirting with the dark side (and leaving the i parked on the front line of a Chevy Dealership with my FOR SALE sign on it for 24 hrs) :twisted: Point was, I'm impressed with the Volt and think it was executed very nicely. Comparing features, comfort and trim le...

Extended test drive - Extended Range EV (i took home a Volt)

So after reading about a Leaf'er who traded in on a Volt and got within $1000 of his Leaf cost on the trade, I decided to explore that option. Sure enough, the Chevy dealer had ten in stock and though they couldn't find any decent data to value my trade, quickly came around to offering to make me wh...

Re: Headlights

Yes, though that sharp cutoff line is nice, I would also prefer the headlights be aimed up a bit- find myself flashing the high beams to make sure there's no surprises up ahead. I'm wondering if this is an unintended consequence of Mitsu refitting the car with smaller tires up front? I haven't found...
