Propulsion power reduced

http://gm-volt.com/forum/archive/index.php/t-19697.html

managed to replicate this around Barbs
120km down the hill.
power drops down to 70kw
then message pops up

first saw this with Jurgen @ RAC driving centre when Jurgen was test driving the volt at race speeds.

feels like starship enterprise on impulse power.
Have to wait until warp engines are back on line.

at least I'm not having this guy's issues.

but this guy is also hitting the customer service brick wall.
"there is no issue" or "you are not using a GM/Holden sanctioned product"

Found it. It is a button on the roof

somehow traction control doesn't turn off ESC.
All places full at RAC Driving Centre.
So went to Barbs.
It is also closer.
Only thing is that the track is longer 2.4km, so not very suitable for imiev.

my current record is 1min 29secs
generally get 1min 30-31 secs

running on petrol generated electricity.
30.1 km, 5.1L, 17.0L/100km

including travelling distance from home,
10.2kWh provided distance of 37km.
