sucks about your car man. is it still driveable?


Yeah, I guess I should have mentioned that part: the damage is all cosmetic. For those of you who might think EV's aren't practical road trip cars, I put 800 miles behind me yesterday, Monterey to Flagstaff. I could make it home today, but will instead have a leisurely 400 mile day and stay with friends tonight in Pagosa Springs.

It wouldn't have made any difference - in the UK that would not be considered his fault. Some years ago I collected a new car and on the way home a lorry in front of me carrying road hard core had a lump of brick fall off it hit my bonnet (hood for our US cousins) and take out my windscreen - I got his number but the insurers said unless I could prove that 1. it came from his load rather than he just hit something in the road 2. His load was unsafe ie overfull or similar it

Yes, and I could almost hear my insurance company's claims agent thinking "Ah, another one following too close," over the phone. Sure wish I'd had the video camera running when he passed and then pulled back in front of me, then slowed down without showing any brake lights. Hmm: I wonder if he even *has* any brake lights: it wouldn't surprise me if they weren't working on that junker.

By the way, as I passed a nondescript commercial building on the side of the road near Tehatchapi yesterday, I noticed a flatbed trailer in the parking lot on which was mounted a Merlin sporting a test club.

The hood/bonnet trans-Atlantic difference reminds me of a WW2 story of a British Army major in Burma who was driving around in a tatty Willies Jeep which had had the metal cover to the engine compartment removed to aid cooling and had the cloth gazebo over the seating area raised to provide shade (you will see why I am so obtuse when you read on).
The said Major drove to a US base and left his Jeep outside the guardroom with its engine running whilst he checked in. When he emerged it had disappeared! After some searching he saw it being driven by an American officer who he flagged down and asked for the return of his vehicle.
"How do you know this is your jeep?" was the reply
British Major - "Because my jeep had a hood but no bonnet."
US Officer - "Well it's obviously NOT yours then, because this jeep has a bonnet, but no hood!!"

I took this stereo-X pair of the Ivanpah solar electric generating station from the Interstate yesterday. What a surreal and fantastic sight: the very air glows near the towers.





Stereo-X pair for cross-eyed viewing.

Steve, if you saw a Merlin on a test stand, then you most likely drove past Vintage V12's. They are in Tehachapi and have been mostly associated with Merlins through the years, but are also the only game on the block for DB601 or DB605 (Bf109), BMW801 (Fw190), and Centaurus (Sea Fury) engines.

Must be less fatiguing without all the noise and harmonics associated with gasoline propulsion systems. I'm seeing more and more "S" models in my neighborhood. There are at least four within a few blocks of my house.

Steve, what kind of range are you getting on a full charge with mostly highway driving?

Sorry to hear about your incident, but I'm glad you weren't injured by the flying debris.

Incredibly less fatiguing, Jim: between the lack of noise and low frequency vibrations, and combined with the enforced charging stops every two-to-three hours (I typically spend 40 minutes at a Supercharger, though it could be anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour, depending on where the next one is), you can drive comfortably for a very long time, even at my advanced age.

Gero, the car's nominal range is 265 miles on a charge, but that can vary enormously depending on your driving style and weather conditions: I've exceeded 300 miles several times, and there are some days and some routes where 180 miles would be pushing it. Most Superchargers are located about 150 miles apart.

They also were the ones who built Strega's motors since 2008. Not this year though. With Strega being sold, the race motor is in Texas at Rick Shanholtzer's shop.
