    Are the jump leads in the front bumper for opening the frunk when 12V battery is dead disabled when battery is not dead?

    If there is an electric latch mechanism for the frunk, and Ford doesn't enable it in very early OTA update, maybe I will go get a sensor like the one for opening the rear sliding your foot under the bumper and install it in the front. Or, I could open the door and pull the manual release twice.

    Otherwise, anyone with a 12V battery could easily break into your frunk?

    Another way to lock your MME

    You should be able to get a talented pin striper to paint your stiches.

    But for an electric car, you don't need a snorkel to drive from mainland to Hawaii. Since there is no ICE, the car does not need any oxygen to run. Oh wait, my bad. No charging stations between mainland and Hawaii.

    Oh, I see that now. I was doing the same thing today, checking Palsapp for cars arriving at dealers this week to see what I can expect in the coming month.

    Looks more like 11 days? 2/21 - 2/10 = 11. Hope that means my 12/13 build will arrive in KC on Feb 24th but alas, I doubt they have a train every day.

    Well I guess I am going to let the interested party from Alaska have it.

    If the car is in transit and the window sticker says 1/12/21 under special order, does that mean it was finished building on 0/12/21? I am about to walk away from this one because my own order is arriving in six weeks or less and was finished building on 2/13/2021. Not crazy about driving 2.5...

    Wow, what does one have to do the get a One Day test drive. Did you have another Ford vehicle in for service and they let you have their courtesy car? Of are you highly qualified? I was able to take a Tesla Model S home overnight due to good credit, but I am sure I will like the Mach E more!

    Yes, I just say wait for your own VIN. The later the build, the more practice they had building before they built yours.

    Regen: AWD versus RWD

    The small motor could provide more regenerative braking if the small motor is regenerating at full capacity while the larger rear motor is only regenerating at a fraction of its capacity. Hopefully, the AWD takes advantage of regen from both motors.

    Regen: AWD versus RWD

    Good Point, since the Mach E weight is distributed nearly even front to back, the braking ratio is closer, but still, weight shifts forward when breaking so maybe it is closer to 60/40 (a guess).

    Regen: AWD versus RWD

    I have rarely used the extra regen paddle on my Bolt, but understand, on the Mach E it will be an extra regen pedal instead of a paddle. I will likely need to use it because I feel like the regen to a stop in the Bolt is just about right. Any slower coming to a stop and those behind me would...

    Any idea what is the second rail yard for Pacific Northwest? Portland, OR?

    Regen: AWD versus RWD

    It should be biased toward the front brakes like all car breaking systems because a lot of the weight shifts to the front during breaking. I believe it should be something like 33% braking from the back and 67% breaking from the front. I am off to check Google. OK, per Google " Brake bias is...
