I was hunting wabbits. Thanks to Simon & Chris for installing the fire extinguisher in the MiEV.

Perhaps I need to get Ben to correct the model to i-MiEV?
but it probably is easier to remember

i-MiEV = Mitsubishi innovative Electric Vehicle
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitsubishi_i-MiEV
don't know what the "i" stands for though.

I'm in poll position at tomorrow's WA State Sprints.
I feel honoured.
but also feel like the novelty, entertainment or clown car class for now.



perhaps we can get some iCars on the track one day
this class will be 660cc = 47kW
1080 kg
kei class vehicles.

will be interesting to see if there are any tuners out there who can derestrict the motor to 60 or 80kW

allegedly the motor is the same one used in the Outlander PHEV and the Mitsu EVO going up Pike's Peak.

but then the imiev will be outside its kei class.AM_Run_Order_Round_4.pdf

went round the track yesterday afternoon.
met up with Ian in his RX7.

this time the session was at 1.00 so I didn't have time to charge up.
charged up from 3.30 to 5.15 to get home.

did a 180 which impressed Jurgen, ESC turned off.

track dried out for the later session, though it started to drizzle again.

Caltex 5 mins up the road has free wifi.

I'm in poll position again. Just to get slower cars out of the way.

Come down and have a look in the morning.

I'll be arriving around 7 am to charge up
Racing begins at 9 I believe.

I got really good tips from Leigh last Sunday

Went off track at least 5 times with ESC off.

Tip from jurgen is to have mirrors folded.
Don't worry of who is catching up behind you cos they'll have a rerun.

Possibly should create a new topic.
But trying to keep the number of topics down.

Barbs track times.
1min 33secs in imiev
in D mode and braking a bit
1min 40secs in B mode n regen without much braking.

volt does Barbs in 1min 30secs
just goes to show how weight makes a difference
1700 vs 1100kg.

Did 1min 29 secs in volt

Reverse targa
Aim for the silos
Then the trees
220 secs best time
Best to be smooth
Was going around in b mode and ESC off
Was in a historic Porsche sandwich
Does anyone know how to chip the imiev to release the inner bogan 80kw?

Well done you, Joseph.
You are one of the best advocates for EVs!

I would love to bring the Proton up for a spin but would have to put a lightweight battery pack in it to get anywhere near competitive handling. Better start saving my pennies.

Thanks for the support rod.
Not sure if imiev is competitive either.
But good to have fun in it.
At least it is rear wheel drive so it is more of a sports car.
Eg mx-5

I wish that echo, yaris, mirage, icar, micra, smart
owners would rock up in the future

rod any ideas to release the imiev's inner 80kw bogan?
