    I have finally rid myself of all things Gasoline!

    i took the lazy way, got rid of grass all together :D, i figure the amount of water i saved not watering a lawn allows me to wash things here and there while keeping me under the average water usage. i have a 15A 18" wide snowjoe, and its been working okay as far as power goes, the durability...

    I have finally rid myself of all things Gasoline!

    Its been a long time coming but today 2019-05-09 is the day gasoline has been vanquished from my life. I sold the last gas burning device, a Karcher 5HP Honda Pressure Washer, loud AF, annoying, laggy, smelly, ridiculous all round, but cleans well (3000psi / 2.5 gpm / 7500 cu). Replaced it...

    Glove box latch failure

    Wow im glad this thread helped so many people, i still have my car and its coming up to 4 years, ive never had an issue with the glove box in all that time. I open and close it quite often as i store my J1772 adapter in there. i guess if you close it using "normal" speed and force it shouldn't...

    [R+T] Electric Torque Is No Replacement for a High-Revving Engine

    what ever potato wrote that article doesnt seem to understand that the tesla is not at all motor constrained, tesla even said the rear motor can handle 500kW with no problems, its the battery and inverter that cant keep up. BTW 500kW is 670HP, the rear motor can rev past 16,000 RPM if properly...

    It's the Batteries, Stupid!

    I put all my money on ultra capacitors for what the future decides on the best type of energy storage.

    Another thing to add, Soylent is by far the most efficient food period. Nothing comes anywhere close, Its also one of the cheapest. 10 minutes today per day to prep, eat and cleanup 1) dump a pouch into my blentec along with 1.5L of water 2) after mixing pour 1.5L into a nalgene bottle 3)...

    Its about time... should of had this done last year. Oh well better late than never. 23 panels, 5.87 kW total, in the 5 minutes it was running for testing i made 289 Wh (enough to drive 2km), only 1/4 of the DC optimizers checked it so it wasnt fully booted up yet. I cant "turn it on" until...

    Tesla Owners in Alberta

    they said for my setup and the amount of shading that panels + DC optimizer (per panel) + inverter was the best/most effective solution. my house is not optimal for solar due to the roof angles, im almost tempted to move and build a house specifically for solar. have a single 40° tilt curved...

    anything under 1MW is okay for residential, and no house to my knowledge is large enough for 1MW of generation, even at theoretical maximum harvest you cant make that much power off solar. the limit of solar is 1.36kW per M² (or the amount of power a regular 120v outlet provides). Enmax says...
