    I agree fleets are a great application for EVs in cities and dense suburbs, especially for delivery with a lot of idling time, since an EV uses almost no power unless under way.

    Re: Rivian R1T

    Thatís my assumption as well. My ICE vehicles should easily last long enough for the prices of decent range EVs to come down because of competition and volume, hopefully by 2026 - 2030. ( And Iím...

    Re: The Worlds first *REAL* Electric Truck!

    Wow, that is a wonderful machine! The EVs are making progress faster than I thought they would, but at this point still very expensive. This truck is around $70K.

    How to Remove Brown Pinstripe from a Branch?

    I finally got my white GC washed and found a brown pinstripe about a foot long from a recent trail. At first I thought it was sap but neither WD40 nor naphtha did much. I can feel that the clear coat...

    Re: JScan OBD2 Scanner/Reader App

    What have you used it for?

    I found the only things I really needed to change were the TPMS threshold and the ECO mode button operation. Now the ECO selection is remembered through a shutdown...

    JScan OBD2 Scanner/Reader App

    I just tried the JScan app on my iPhone coupled with an iCar Pro OBD2 Bluetooth interface and it worked really well for my 2014 Jeep GC. The app was $21 for one vehicle and the iCar unit was $32.

    Re: Good Info

    I looked it up and tempered glass breaks somewhere around 20,000 PSI. Not much force is required on a hard, sharp point to get to that value, which is how those little window breaking tools work. For...

    Re: FR4x4 default radio channels - what shall we use?

    The "privacy" code will do that. But it will also prevent you from knowing if you are missing a transmission when the other group transmits simultaneously. You won't hear anything at all, whereas...

    Re: FR4x4 default radio channels - what shall we use?

    The privacy code tones are sub-audible. You donít hear them because they are below the radio audio amplifier frequency response. But the radio control circuitry hears them and opens the squelch.
