Re: My Girlfriend Buys a New Car!

The "Out of Spec" motoring does EV car reviews across the board but based on his experience, his personal ride is Model 3. He was also half of a team that set the EV Cannonball record. In the Fall, he sponsors a Tesla track weekend that includes performance driving. Given our BMW i3 has an electroni...

Re: My Girlfriend Buys a New Car!

Owning both a Model 3 and BMW i3-REx, there is no real conflict. Both cars in "chill" mode or "ECO Pro" have nearly identical acceleration up to 65-70 mph. The BMW is far from a gut-less compliance car and with the REx, it has similar cross country capability up to ~70 mph. Sure the Model 3 is super...

Re: Ignore user not working

No problem. I'll take screen shots if (when) he comes back. It was the Chinese SPAMMER.

Ignore user not working

Hi,

The sleaze ball is back so I tried to "Ignore" him. Unfortunately, it appears to require "foe" identification and still does not "ignore" him.

Would it be useful to look up cd/m for the rated drag efficiency?
Not as much as making sure I have a reproducible benchmark and metrics on the airflow.

Re: hotel/motels w/charging in San Luis Obispo & Pasadena?

The many different plug types are throwing me. I assume that i3 owners can only use 2 types --- J1772 and CHAdEMO (DC fast charge). That sure limits the chargers i can use. Overnight, look for a J1772 at the motel. CHAdeMO is useless but you can use a CCS-1 but usually for an excessive fee. Bob Wil...

Re: Any indicator to other drivers that you're still charging?

You smile at them and say, "OK, get out your insurance card and let's exchange information." Take a photo of theirs and their license plate. Encourage them to do the same of yours. Then, take a photo of the EVSE to see what it says is going. Get in your car and see if you can remove the plug. If you...

Compare Model 3, BMW i3, and Model Y

I'm using the BMW i3-BEV for metrics as we have a BMW i3-REx: http://hiwaay.net/~bzwilson/TSLA/Model_3_3_i3_Y_010.jpg I own a 2019 Model 3 and a 2014 BMW i3-REx, using BEV version for metrics: Model 3 - Need to get roll-down metrics to determine if it was drag reduction. If drag reduction, it would ...
