    I just finished ordering a fancy ammeter for the Mirage. I was just going to use an analog meter with a shunt. But, the more I looked around, the more I found cool nerdy stuff that would just be...

    I had my best commute to work today. It's Friday, so lighter traffic than normal which allowed me some space to coast more. This was trying pretty hard. Not doable every day.

    I also used my block...

    I am currently out of stock Benwerks. Hopefully I'll have new bars on order soon.

    The current measurement was taken for the whole circuit as it is right now. I do think I will just put it on switched power as Loren suggested. That should eliminate all phantom load.

    That is an excellent idea and I will definitely do that.

    As for the other methods of activating the alternator I like them, but I really want to keep this super simple for now. I am really not...

    Great question! Thankfully, it really shouldn't be too hard. I created this circuit to disable the alternator. All I need to do to activate regenerative braking is reactivate the alternator when I...

    You will want a 3 way heater control valve to do this properly. Shouldn't cost much. Most cars have these valves for the reasons we have seen already.

    Had another hiccup with the circuit today. Again the voltage shot up to 15V. So again I knew what it was. This time I went and grabbed a needle nose pliers and re-bent the tabs even better this time....

    I tortured my bump stops. 700 lbs of boxes plus 150 lb me. Took them to the UPS store ~1 mile away through my road which is entirely ripped up because they're doing new water and sewer lines. I...

    I really gave it a good try on the way home from work today. I changed my normal route to one that has slower roads. This added a few minutes to my 14 mile (normally ~25 minute commute). It...

    I recently put on Raybestos Element3 EHT hybrid pads and I really like them. They have more stopping power than my old ceramic pads, and they are quiet. I'm not sure about brake dust yet as it's only...

    Just got to work a bit ago. Best mpg yet at 65.1 mpg according to the MFD. Not too shabby. :)

    The ride started out a bit odd. I started the car and the voltage out of the alternator immediately...

    I picked up this project up again now that its warm. I decided to start with another bench test of the circuit. The linear voltage regulator was putting out a very nice consistent 4.99V which is...

    The ride is noticeably more firm over bumps. The nice bit is steering is a bit more crisp too. It's totally bearable IMO.

    I hope a 60+ mpg tank is in my future yet this year. It would be a massive...

    I aired up my tires to a solid 50 psi last night. I've been getting an iffy 60 mpg in to work lately. Today the MFD read 64 mpg!

    Welcome to the site. Nice looking Mirage you got there.

    Your package went out yesterday. I don't remember if it said 2 or 3 day delivery. You should have it before the end of the week.
