If I engaged the clutch without applying the throttle on a hill in my shitbox hatchback, I'm pretty sure I'd go backwards.
>>
>>16712972
>without applying the throttle
no one said that

the point is that you can start letting the clutch out while your foot is still on the brake then switch to the throttle when you're at the bite point

now if you instead let your foot off the brake while you're still trying to feel the bite point, you're already rolling down the hill

I'm gonna become an automotive tech and make lots of random repairs to your car and make you pay for them. You also need a new air filter for $40 and engine flush too. And your cat is bad.

>That said, solar has gotten substantially cheaper, to the point that it's began to rival natural gas. That's just one form of the "alternatives", too.

Solar can work if all the electric car companies standardize on a common system of replaceable electric packs instead of one single massive pack that only the manufacturer can winch out and replace. Then packs can be recharging at home while the car is out driving. When the owner gets home, he replaces packs with the charged ones and the combination solar and commercial power charge controller finishes charging both the car and any external packs using solar first.

Generally, solar arrays would resell the power to the electric grid for credits to offset the cost the homeowner incurs to charge the electric car. That would also benefit from green subsidies. Tesla owns a large solar power company, so it could be a one-stop shop to also sell solar power arrays.

The only problem is that chinese copycatting makes all the companies not want to spend much on research. The chinese simply wait and steal the tech and then create products to sell at a low price thus cutting out all value of intellectual property research and development.

I found some great stats on the Micronesia Wikipedia page about Electric cars. You can use them to make your paper A+ double good €£¥$

34% of Teslas are used for Traveling Door-to-Door Dildo Sales.
95% of Prius owners wish to become Traveling Dildo Salesmen.
19% of Volt owners are unladen African Swallows.
12% of the energy used by Teslas could be produced by recycling 60% of the Nissan Leafs on the road.
8% of the Prius vehicles contain 97% of the escaped mental patients of the Island of Aruba.
15% of Chevy Volts weigh more than 67% of the worlds population of Vietnamese Spider Falcons.
If you stacked every Prius end to end, it would be taller than every Chevy volt stacked up with every blue whale in the ocean.
71% of the batteries of Teslas will end up recycled into personal sex robot batteries.
61% of Nissan Leaf owners are unconcvicted sex offenders.
44% of Prius owners accidently relieve themselves in thier car at least 3 times a year.
The volume setting of a Tesla radio goes 12% higher than the Ford GT, and 33% higher than the Bugatti Veyron.
Drivers of electric cars are 89% more likely to die in an electric car crash than drivers who do not drive electric cars who only die in electric cars 54% more than people die from rider horses per mile in 1873 in Westphalia.

Many times I explained that the car isn't important to the stance nation crowd. Taking pictures of them, posting to the web, and receiving praise, is the important part

How many times do I have to explain that? You change the car for a watch and they'd get together in McDonald's to take pics of their new bezels that, although they make the watch uncomfortable to wear, and harder to see the time, they'll unanimously approve and praise because it's different or it has some attribute that others don't have, even if the attribute makes the point of the watch (or in this case, the cars) useless or secondary, or tertiary, or bottom-of-the-list because looking pretty is all that matters

People spend lots of money on church and religion in general. These people spend money on cars, and they have the same sort of eco-chamber that cults have

I know of the No True Scotsman fallacy. I'm not saying I AM the one and only enthusiast, I'm saying that they aren't focused on cars because they love cars, their focus on cars stems from the fact that it gives them a community to latch on

>>16712949
Lowering for performance is an entirely different issue. That's (usually) done with knowledge, leaving enough suspension travel for it to still work on the track, matching springs and dampers, making sure camber, toe, and even kingpin angles are properly set up, modifying motion ratios, etc. Hellaflush-tier cars have pretty much none of these, and the few that have some of these attributes changed are only less of a nightmare than the rest of them

Also, did it occur to you to make sure the battery is even in the right way? ALSO, put the key into the drivers door, put it to the UNLOCK position TWICE, then try it. Take pictures of the keyfob inside and out. Is the security light blinking?

The keyfob isn't somehow making the ignition not work. It really sounds like your starter is shot, or that there's a loose connection. It should still crank, run for 2 second, then die if it's being immobilized due to security.
