  1. News already bashing

    Why a Tesla troll? It could be an ICE troll. Or a "Real Mustang" troll. Or a Kona troll. etc, etc, etc. I'm not saying it isn't a Tesla troll, but there's nothing to confirm it is. I think the MME is far more well thought of in Tesla circles than it is in ICE circles.
  2. Mach-E EPA Ratings Revealed in Window Sticker!

    I'd be extremely surprised if it wasn't.
  3. Mach-E EPA Ratings Revealed in Window Sticker!

    This is my favorite sentence in the entire thread. :)
  4. Mach-E EPA Ratings Revealed in Window Sticker!

    I should have labeled my post with "IMHO", as it is only an unsubstantiated guess.
  5. Mach-E EPA Ratings Revealed in Window Sticker!

    Interesting article, I've read his stuff before. I have to say I'm not a fan of Dr, Belt's method. (And it's about more manufacturers than just Tesla.) My main complaint about his work is he tries to prove unintended acceleration, rather than investigate it without bias. But that's a whole...
  6. Mach-E EPA Ratings Revealed in Window Sticker!

    You're absolutely correct. Higher average charge power should result in shorter charge times. IMHO, It will also be more expensive because charging will be less efficient due to more waste heat being produced. Time will tell how well the batteries hold up, perhaps they have a revolutionary...

    Here's an article, scroll about halfway down: Audi review Other than that, Audi's website doesn't mention a performance warranty anywhere. I can't find the fine print, so I'm trusting that article. But if Audi doesn't explicitly give a percentage of capacity left, then the only thing they're...
  8. Preparing for Mach-E charging at home - preparation and installing charger

    I have a 24 foot Yamaha jet boat. There are six warnings around the boat not to put your vagina in front of the jet pump. Seriously. LOL.

    That graph really bothered me, It just didn't make sense. So I did a little research. Look closely at Audi's battery warranty. Just about every other manufacturer warranties the battery for the same time and mileage, but they also include a performance warranty. The warranty for most everyone...
  10. EPA Certifies Mach-E Range Targets, 300 Miles for Premium Extended Range RWD

    That makes total sense. Ford has to warranty the battery, so they don't want big battery failures like the Leaf had. It would be very smart for Ford to be a bit conservative with the battery at first. Once they get some long term data, they'll be able to model useable battery based on actual...

    Having grown up in the PNW, I'm pretty familiar with driving in the rain, LOL. (I lived in Phoenix for three years too, so I know about monsoon season as well. :D ) I have had to "wipe" my brakes on a number of occasions in previous vehicles. Some are worse than others, but when I notice my...

    I read that they did it this way for brake feel. Also, the iBosch brake controller/master cylinder is probably cheaper than a true drive-by-wire brake controller like the Audi E-tron uses. According to this story, Audi , the Audi was the first EV to incorporate brake-by-wire. I think the Taycan...

    Actually not. The conversation started with me wondering if Ford would implement the same strategy with the Mach-e.
  14. Mach-E EPA Ratings Revealed in Window Sticker!

    Actually Tesla does not have brake by wire. When you push on the brake pedal you are mechanically actuating the brake master cylinder. When you take your foot off the accelerator pedal regen does begin, but pressing on the brake pedal does not activate regen. At least it is that way with the 3...

    The part about Brake Disc Wiping for inclement weather is in the owner's manual. I read the other part in an interview with an engineer. According to him, the car tracks how often the brakes are used, and if it doesn't meet the threshold for rust prevention the brakes are applied.
  16. Things to consider when DIY installing a wall charger / outlet

    That's probably good, for some reason it looked lower to me in your picture. It's a good thing to check, because it is part of the code how high the hook is.
  17. Things to consider when DIY installing a wall charger / outlet

    Nice work! The only thing I'd say is you might want to check your local code on how high the charge cord has to be hung. It might be the angle of the picture, but it looks like it might be too low. I know this doesn't sound like a big deal, but if you ever have a fire the insurance investigator...

    I hope Ford implements Tesla's solution to brake longevity. Teslas slightly apply the brake occasionally to keep rust from forming on the rotor. They also apply the brakes in inclement weather to keep the rotor & pads clear of water so the brakes will work if you need them. This action is...

    The two aren't comparable. FSD is more like a "Kickstarter" project. If Tesla succeeds with making it fully autonomous, then your $10K investment is a fraction of what your FSD will be worth. If Tesla does not succeed, then your $10K investment is worth about $4K. (Even without autonomy, the FSD...
  20. Mach-E EPA Ratings Revealed in Window Sticker!

    "You must make sure your vehicle is unplugged and you respond to the message prompt before starting the vehicle." I hope you're right, because the owner's manual says it's up to the driver. I'd get that if there was a warning that you were plugged in and the car simply wouldn't drive. The...
