  1. What Pleased You Today!

    Got my Federal tax refund today, still need to send in Illinois State taxes today, should be getting a little more back through there as well.
  2. What Pleased You Today!

    I had taken today off to go to the Chicago Auto Show before getting hit Sunday and the appraiser from my insurance company stopped by this morning and estimated the body damage at around $1k, not sure on the mechanical end until somebody starts dismantling the car. The visit was early enough that I was able to catch a Metra train into Chicago and a bus from the train station to the McCormack Place for $10 combined. Parking alone is around $20 if I drove and then there is fuel costs and the stress of driving down here. Way it's looking, I'll probably just do this again next year and plan on looking into doing this for any trips to the Museum of Science and Industry too!
  3. What Irked You Today?

    Eh, I'm old enough to be her father, but still young enough to still remember driving in the winter at her age.
  4. What Irked You Today?

    I was in a minor fender bender yeterday that managed to knock out my steering. Not upset at the girl that hit me, that intersection was kinda slick, plus this is her first winter as a driver, kinda,see this as a "stuff happens" moment . What did annoy me though was that it was this slick, but I'm not sure if there was any clearing or salting done until AFTER I called 911 for us, and we were passed by at least 5 more by the time my 200 was loaded on the flatbed to bring it home. Oh, and that first plow by stopped to see if we were ok (we were), and in doing so, slid to a stop himself
  5. Message to FCA: Don't Mess With My Challenger!

    I'm sure that it can be done Nick

    My 200 doesn't make much noise, but it does pull hard when asked.........which unlike too much noise, does not get old.

    I would like to see how it works out, this would be great for a variety of racetracks surrounded by NIMBYs and even street racers since the noise is greatly reduced.
  8. eCOPO Camaro Concept

    I'd probably go for a Demon over any COPO, CJ, or Drag Pack, just due to the fact that it can be registered for street use. That said though, that eCOPO set up in anything light like a backhalfed 2dr Caviler or Cobalt, or even 2wd XJ with a Gasser like stance would be mindblowing and fun.
  9. eCOPO Camaro Concept

    Formula E no longer has to do that either, their new cars can go a whole race on one charge and run quicker lap times too! Apparently they also have to run an entire season with just one battery per car, should be interesting to see how the gen 2 cars work out.
  10. Wondered how long it would be before this happened!

    It's going to mostly use regenerative braking, which is like dynamic brakes on a locomotive. The computer switches the motors into generators when coasting and slowing, which will handle most of the stopping needs vs the standard brakes
  11. The "S" word...

    Had a 4hr shift at work today and came out to find most of the snow melted off my car and showing 35° on the EVIC on the dash!
  12. eCOPO Camaro Concept

    |At this point, that too is antiquated tech! This will likely have more in common with a modern brushless R/C car than any slot car, hobby wise.....it'll also have more in common with diesel locomotives than slot cars as well!
  13. Wondered how long it would be before this happened!

    I think the owner(s) of Moon is/are originally from Japan and IIRC, his english wasn't the most clear from the time I saw him on Full Custom Garage, plus I'm not sure if he is handling this or if somebody from the part of the company that is in Japan is.
  14. Just didn't think Moon would be on the forefront of this! Not gonna lie, I do dig the look too http://www.mooneyesusa.com/product-p/md1181t3.htm I also accidentally discovered a Volt with some Moon Discs, kinda digging them there too!

    Chevy finally put this car down a quarter mile, wonder what the 60 foot is like on it https://www.motortrend.com/news/chevrolet-ecopo-camaro-pops-electric-wheelie-first-pass/
