    2023 order bank - GTPE All Season tires

    probably the same all-seasons that are on the regular GT. The Continental CrossContact RX tires. I use them as my summer tires (April-Nov) on a set of GTPE rims. I use Michelin CrossClimate2 tires on my GT rims for my winter tires (Nov-April).

    Should I try to force HVBJB to fail?

    I’d be tempted to lend my car to @heisnuts for the weekend to break the HVBJB and then drop it off at his local dealer since they’re so familiar with the repair. Hmm, maybe there’s a business opportunity there…

    Tesla Supercharger network now up to 17 locations with Magic Dock

    I wonder if Tesla is expanding their test sites or if this is the start of a major rollout. There are some big CCS bottlenecks out there that could use some relief (Quartzsite, AZ anybody?).

    NACS adapter coming when?

    Farley had some interesting things to say to MotorTrend about how Ford came about getting a deal with Tesla. Check out the 19:43 mark.

    Munro Live interview with Donna Dickson: Mach-E Rally changes and reveals

    I’m bracing myself for basically no further improvements to the 2021-23 cars for acceleration and charging times. Womp womp.

    HVB Charge limit setting

    There’s no universal charge limit in the MME. It’s silly. I think there’s one in the Lightning though.

    Feds free up $100M to replace unreliable EV chargers

    Big step in getting rid of range anxiety

    “Wrong Vancouver” happens and can be a legit problem. In the Seattle area, whether you’re going north or south on I-5, there’s a distance sign saying you’re on the way to Vancouver. The wife of a Ft Lewis soldier was new to town after moving up from Texas. She went to visit her friend in...

    Big step in getting rid of range anxiety

    There’s been a few new CCS charging stations opening up along I-5. The best thing though will be V3 access next year since there’s plenty of new superchargers along I-5.

    Seattle to Spokane in a Mach-E in mid-March - advice?

    Ellensburg is an absolute clusterfu*k these days. The reports of people stacked up waiting to charge there is now absurd.

    What is your solar set up if you have one ?

    Similar story and production numbers for me in July with 30 panels from SunPower. I’ve had the panels for 10 months and am hoping to bank enough kWh via net metering to be close to net zero for billing purposes over the course the year.

    2021 GT/GTPE MMEs Without HVBJB Failure - Tracking List

    Interesting how GTs are failing in real time on the list. As for raw numbers and percentages, I can’t imagine there are that many GT/PE cars from 2021. The manufacturing timing for ‘21 GTs was what, 5 months? 6 months tops? Total built was just a few thousand maybe. With as many dead HVBJBs...

    Anyone running on Michelin CrossClimate2?

    I run CC2s fall/winter/spring and the stock CrossContact RX tires spring/summer/fall (obviously some overlap). There is a noticeable range hit with the CC2s and the CrossContact RX tires are both quieter and do better at softening rough pavement.

    Mustang Mach-E Rally Edition! Priced ~$65K, 480hp, 650lb-ft, raised 20mm, Rally Sport Mode, ordering open early 2024

    hate to disagree with you, but a 20-25% difference is pretty significant, regardless of what’s being measured. 36 minutes is what the MME ER should have launched with and sub-30 minutes is what the midcycle should be. That would at least keep pace with the primary competition.

    Mustang Mach-E Rally Edition! Priced ~$65K, 480hp, 650lb-ft, raised 20mm, Rally Sport Mode, ordering open early 2024

    These 400v cars all charge to 80% between 5-8 minutes faster than the MME Rally. e-tron Polestar ID4 Mercedes EQE Still in the MME’s price range and class are the Korean EVs and they’re at 18 mins.

    Mustang Mach-E Rally Edition! Priced ~$65K, 480hp, 650lb-ft, raised 20mm, Rally Sport Mode, ordering open early 2024

    It’s a valid question. Did Ford beef up the HV components to sustain more current or is this just a software revision to the existing hardware? 9 minutes improvement to the charging time to 80% is a nice leap forward but still anywhere from 10-18 minutes longer than other cars in its class.

    Mustang Mach-E Rally Edition! Priced ~$65K, 480hp, 650lb-ft, raised 20mm, Rally Sport Mode, ordering open early 2024

    I’ve got the Hipster Rally! I had a GT with Michelin CrossClimate2s before it was cool.
