Do you ever actually work? Moving into the limo service?

Chicken coup! A hen in the fox den?

Canada's most widely read auto publication is the Toronto Star's weekend "Wheels" section. They just launched a new web site with a "reader's wheels" photo gallery.

Care to guess what's been added to the gallery among the high power muscle cars & blingmobiles?

Your name is spelled incorrectly, Mr. Corgrove!

Well, the Vulcan 24/10 charger isn't quite as smart as I thought it was. I wrote to the company (just down the highway in Toronto) and got this reply:

Quote:
The EA24/10 does not use a 3-stage charging
algorithm. It is a simple taper type charger
meaning that as the battery voltage rises the
charging current drops off. When the battery
voltage reaches about 29.2V an electronic finish
timer is activated, and after 3 hours the
charger will shut down. If the charger is
sized appropriately for the batteries to be
recharged then the batteries will finish
properly during the gassing phase.

In other news, started work on the front battery racks this evening. Nothing special to report yet, but I'll take pics when I've got something to show.

Yeah, funny. Well they got it right 2 out of 3 times, so on average they were correct.

Tinkered a little more with the front racks on Saturday. Still nothing photo-worthy though. This week. Maybe I'll slack off tomorrow afternoon and do some more work on it.

I've been eBaying for a proper welding mask too, since there's going to be a need for that at this stage of the game.

Wow, the Forkenswift looks great.

Sometimes I pretend that I'm driving an EV Metro when I do ICE off coasting in my car.
