    I'll second that request, it's an annoying limitation of most forums.

    The forum is already set to index all words 3-chars or more in length. Try "GSM*" as your search term. I can't say why the wildcard on the end seems to work but it does!

    That better, but it is still broken. Search for VDS*. It finds one post from Tdave: "2010 Tesla Roadster interior photos"

    It doesn't find, (for example) these posts:

    iPhone app

    Charging the Roadster


    Why? There should be dozens of posts with VDS*

    OK, I looked into this a bit further. I've updated the DB config and re-build the search index. I think that this is it. A search for "VDS" now nets a full page of results.

    Only for plastics; still a bit of a flop for powering transportation. :)

    Hopefully not motor oil !

    (I doubt you want to put olive oil in a crank-case either.)
