Timing.

Sometimes luck too.

My 2004 Monte Carlo SS was just as plasticky as the Bolt is. It must be a Chevy thing.

Re: Speed vs Efficiency with respect to total travel time

I wanted to take the BATTERY CHEMISTRY out of the equation, and out of this discussion. It is irrelevent where the Watts come from. It could be lead acid, nickel cadmium, nickel metal hydride, zinc carbon, or alkaline. It could be from a really long extension cord, bank of super capacitors, solar c...

Re: Idea: Feature to auto-set the E-brake when you park?

Just unbuckle your seat belt when at a complete stop. It will automatically set the parking brake.

Re: Using the 120V included charger

It looks like these guys: http://evseupgrade.com/?main_page=product_info&cPath=4&products_id=31 are charging $199 to but a new plug on the end of the cord! All you need is something like these (choose what you need for a plug end): - https://www.amazon.com/General-Electric-WX09X10020-Wire-6...

Re: Bike racks

The "bounce" appears to be the characteristics of the rear suspension. As soon as I get some free $$ I want to look in to some sort of dampening for it - be it new shocks/struts or otherwise. If you find a good resolution I'm sure we all will love to investigate it. Hard to rest your head ...

Re: Dash Gripes - any ideas?

...I have an LED spotlight bulb clamped to a bike hanging over the Bolt ambient light sensor when the car is parked in the garage. I use SmartThings for home automation and made a rule to turn the spotlight on when the garage door opens when it's daytime. Now when I back out of the garage during th...

This is my view exactly. Also, leather tends to fall apart if it isn't high quality. Something I fea...

Re: Tesla Model 3 - Specs released

Also, no full federal rebate for this one. They've already sold over the 200,000 limit. Not sure what range they are in now.

Thank you for the link, it helped me solidify that I bought the correct car for me.
