    Has anyone done a range charge? I did yesterday and had 315 miles Ideal!
    I hadn't fully recharged my car since driving back from the factory. Once I did finish a regular charge I think.


    here was the first direction of my trip:

    I drove about 78 miles to Crescent city from Arcata when I arrived I had 200 over miles Ideal still!

    I did the trip going 68 in 65 zones, 58 in 55 zones and passed aggressively 2 times w/ 2-3 seconds of full throtttle :wink:
    there are 2 'big hills' to go over I went down the first one @ around 70 -75mph but slowed to 64-66 going up it.

    don't know what's up w/ my attachments... apparently you cant remove attachments?

    link is pretty useful

    What/how did you create those maps with the elevation and your car and stuff?

    It's 'Green Race', and is really neat. Pick out your map area, and your EV. Then lay out the travel on the map. Nice.
    Europeans are do-ers!

    It doesn't do too well crossing Lake Washington on the "floating" 520 bridge. It drives across the bottom of the lake. :)

    It seems like the norm for range charge is around 275 miles for most 85kw cars. Any idea why yours is so much higher? 15% higher than the average is pretty significant could it be that the cells are just that much better or could the parameters on your pack be set differently than most? Please keep us posted on how your pack trends.

    something like that
    max charges are around
    275-278 or so rated and
    312-315 ideal

    I had my settings on ideal at first and switched to the rated recently since it is a little more realistic.
