Re: i-bargains

How much in fees do those salvage sites add?
I've looked at copart. (I always think of cops making art) Are there others?
Also I read an article once about how people were buying wrecked evs sight unseen and they get there and there is no HV battery... so beware of that.

Re: shudder from rear at hwy speeds

Yes it was a Yokohama Avid Envigor... in the summer after I had just filled it up to 50psi. I just bought another to replace it, If i had seen your post earlier I may have splurged for the Enasave at twice the price.

Re: shudder from rear at hwy speeds

It was the tire falling apart! When I did a quick look at it it must have been on the bottom side.

Re: Back Seat Lever

I am always putting the rear seats up and down and both my levers wore out pretty quickly. I removed the hard-to-get-to screw with a short phillips bit held in visegrips, and then removed the broken lever and left said visegrips permanently on the metal square nub as the new lever.

I have one in New Orleans, had it about two years now. Some reduction in range but not outrageous. If you are in New Orleans hit me up.
