  1. 4xe Full Skid Plating Options?

    I know that this is almost a month old, but any updates?
  2. Show Me Your 4xe on 37s

    I am curious about this too. From what I have seen, Tlthere are people running 37s with no lift on a 4xe. They have indicated no rubbing on road. It would definitely rub under flex though.
  3. Dealer for Best Price on 4Xe?

    I bought from Mike Clinnin at Mall of Georgia. Great price and great service. When I purchased it started at 5% below invoice, 6% if you have an affiliate membership (Access Fund for $50 or Tread Lightly for $100), and 7% if you have an affiliate and use their financing.
  4. Way to force Engine on for start up

    Opening the hood will do it. But that might make driving difficult.
  5. Door Lock Snap Cap Covers

    Just ordered a set. Thanks @mvng4wd
  6. Started drive yesterday with 30 mile e range?

    I started at work at 95% and ended at home with 48%, so net use of 47%. That is about 5% than my previous tests going from work to home. I also thought to officially check elevation per GPS. It is 140 ft higher at home (much more than I expected) so my conclusion based on one data point is...
  7. Started drive yesterday with 30 mile e range?

    Part 1 of the test is complete. I started at home with 100% charge, and turned on e-save (battery charge) and max regen before leaving. Even with e-save on, the first ~1.5 miles was using only battery (presumably because it was at low speed and low throttle) and the battery was down to 92%...
  8. Started drive yesterday with 30 mile e range?

    A full charge starting at work would be an interesting test, but unfortunately I don't have access to a charger or power outlet at my work. The closest test would be to start with a full charge at home and use e-save the whole way to work. I am sort of curious to see how high the charge would be...
  9. Started drive yesterday with 30 mile e range?

    I am curious what others are seeing in linearity of battery consumption. If it is linear, and the range is 25 miles (makes math simple), then 1% of the battery is a 1/4 mile. My results so far are not very linear. I'm not sure if it's the type of drive, my driving, the weather, non-linear...
  10. Fuel and oil refresh mode ?

    If the ICE (engine) has not been operated in a while, the computer will start it to make sure that the gas doesn't degrade too much and that the engine oil gets circulated. The 4xe supplemental manual describes it.
  11. Sound Mod Needed for 4xe
  12. 4xe speedometer calibration

    This is very exciting news. I'm curious if you have any ideas about what 4xe specific features might be available. I'm guessing you won't know until you have yours in hand and can start to investigate?
  13. Owners show off your new 4xe!

    Got mine last Saturday and drove 600 miles home on Saturday and Sunday. It drove great, with no issues.
  14. EV Shifting and Pedestrian Alert

    Definitely not easy to get a pic of the connector. It might be possible with a borescope to get it right in that area. Just out of curiosity, I tried to access the connector from the wheel well. I put my right arm in the top of the vertical slot in the splash guard and was able to barely touch...
  15. 4XE - Worse mileage than other motors (after battery depleted)?

    I can't say exactly how much extra fuel it consumes to charge the battery. In general, what I have noticed is that in regular hybrid mode, the engine shuts down when going down hills, but in e-save mode it continues to run so that is the most obvious "extra" use of fuel to run in e-save mode. I...
  16. EV Shifting and Pedestrian Alert

    Yes, when in reverse, only the rear speaker is active and when in drive, only the front speaker is active. Disconnecting the connector to the rear speaker only disables that speaker. I spent this evening trying to track down the exact location of the front speaker. The echoes made it very...
  17. 4XE - Worse mileage than other motors (after battery depleted)?

    I got my 4xe last Saturday morning from Mall of Georgia. They are 9 hrs from me, but Mike Clinnin offered a great price and experience, so I decided it was worth it. It gave me a great opportunity to test out real world fuel mileage. I did break-in on the first day. It was right at 300 miles...
  18. Max Regen Question (edited title..)

    I did a test of driving about 2 hours at 70 mph in e-save (battery charge) mode, and got about 25% battery charge (started at <1%). It was on an interstate in a moderately hilly area.

    I'm finally a member of the club!
  20. 4xE Order Status??

    Finally was able to pick up my 4xe last Saturday from Mall of Georgia. Had a great experience buying from Mike Clinnin. The 600 mile drive home went great. Got home Sunday night and got it charging right away.
