We apparently keep our big ass lead foot on the pedal which never allows the battery to charge. The battery recgarges using regenerative energy from the brakes when the driver lets off the gas and coasts.

And dont even get me started on the sensitivity of energy needs of this car. When doing ANY software work you need to have a constant 14 or 16 or whatever it is, or you will regret it.. Mine has 34 modules, and 2 DMEs. The have a computer for every task imaginable and just for the hell of it,the modules will get together just to screw with your
Yet every manufacturer has copied the Hot Vee design. Mercedes, Porsche, Audi, Cadillac. Every one of their twin turbo V8s are Hot Vees. The problem isn’t the design. The problem is air management, or more accurately, HEAT management. Putting 18 heat shields over the turbos keeps the heat on them, which causes problems. If they’d lit the heat out, through vented hoods or whatever, most of the problems would go away.

Btw; all the modules and computers are connected to a FlexRay network. That’s how they communicate and screw with us.
