  1. China's Nio Lets EV Drivers Swap Battery Quick and Hit the Road (caranddriver.com) How about just a quick 5 min battery exchange vs long charge.
  2. Far from retired unfortunately. I'm at Perrysburg GMC now.
  3. I believe you are correct, you have to pay to use the remote start, among other things, on the app now. Welcome back.
  4. I use sport mode also. One day I’ll try tow/haul mode. It seems like a more aggressive mode in “ normal ish” driving. Maybe I’ll try 4wd auto one day also.
  5. The hang up I have with the Diablo tuner is that the ecm still has to be removed and sent out to be unlocked the sent back then tuned.
  6. I still have my S&B intake to install yet. Maybe I’ll end up doing a Diablo tune, maybe a low 13 second time….
  7. I noticed it first when swapped transmissions in my 69 Dart in my dads garage. I had to cut the exhaust in front of the muffler. It sounded terrible after that and felt like it was making a lot of noise just to get down the road and seemed slower. My dad said once you get the exhaust fixed it will be fine, and it was. This truck exhaust was louder than I wanted originally. Same sensation as in my Dart for me. I’m now getting used to exhaust-replaced muffler and flapper valve with straight through muffler, kept resonators-and honestly kinda like it. Maybe just me.
  8. So I’ve known about the phenomenon of a loud exhaust making the same vehicle seem slower. So worrying that my muffler replacement may be hurting performance I finally decided to set up my new dragy. Knowing the truck is sitting about 150 lbs heavier than when I went to the track where it ran a 13.61 I was hoping for a 13.7ish. The first run went 13.69, so I was pleased and didn’t believe the new louder exhaust didn’t hurt performance. I decided to do run more run for the heck of it, launch at a little higher rpm and it ran 13.59. So now I’m thinking maybe the exhaust actually helped performance. Who’d a thunk that.

  10. Try Coker tire. https://www.cokertire.com/tires.html?network=o&msclkid=c7c022ab932519a94e3d40b886d9e07a&utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=Coker&utm_term=coker tire&utm_content=Coker Tire
  11. -tonneau cover -N-fab tube steps -1.5” front lift -Pulsar LT -muffler swap S&B is about to go on.
  12. Well, I now have a 3.5 in/out offset Magnaflow muffler for the truck. However I think it's gonna sit in my garage. The sound is really starting to grow on me. Maybe I'm turning into more of a redneck, but I'm liking the sound. So no Magnaflow for now.
  13. I’m also believing what GM says about the flapper existing to help with gas mileage in less than 8 cylinder mode. This thing is sucking gas now. No I haven’t been getting on it more, actually seemingly less because it’s so loud.
