Curious as to why you need a cooling system? Maybe for your battery pack?

My best friend's dad used to unhook the speedo cable, chuck it into a drill, tape up the drill trigger and run it overnight to roll back the mileage.

Re: We ordered a 2020 Mini Cooper electric!

We are at the dealer right now! pics... we need pics! I just bought my second Volt. My first one only had 40k miles on it but since Chevy has discontinued making them and the $9k tax credit was about to expire, I figured why not buy another. Besides, nobody else is making anything like the Volt tha...

You need to know battery kWh (and amp draw of AC) if you want to figure out how long your AC will run off of your battery pack.

Or passenger seat of a vehicle.
Drinking and driving laws don't allow any open containers of booze in a car at any time, even when stopped.

IMHO using phones in cars kill or injure more than booze in cars does.

Re: Bike paint primer dilemma

Hey John,

Regular steel sprayed with WD40 works well. That's what we used to use on the race car frames. Makes repairs easy after smashing them up. Believe it or not, semi-flat black top coated with WD looks pretty good too. Just apply liberally and often.

I miss Chalo's posts too, but if the forum lost LFP (Luke) that would be a damn shame. I wonder what happened? Did he just get tired of the joint, or did someone piss him off? He spent a lot of his time and money buying batteries and other kit and testing them. He always shared his results with us. ...
