Re: 2014 diesel production

Tomorrow, Vtail is flying us out to Detroit to hook up with Chevy and Brainstormer for a plant tour. Should be a fun day, and hopefully sate my need to see the EcoDiesels...........or............ It will drive me stark raving mad that they are just sitting there awaiting shipment.
Will post stories from the trip and pictures when we get back. Looking forward to the adventure!!!

Re: 2014 diesel production

Have fun on plant visit. Will you guys have time to take a run out to the Charlevoix yard to salivate over the Unicorns?

Look for a Cashmere Pearl Limited on the line. I should be up next based on my D1 date.

Do you have video of a cherry red unicorn in the snow? Last video was good, but I would like to see the contrast

In fact as long as something else doesn't happen in the next few days I would say it is extremely good chance. There are more than 1700 btw, I only counted US dealer destine units, there is ~2000 plus now for North America (making sure we don't leave the neighbors to the north out of my comment).

You should have flown in today, it's gorgeous here in Michigan! Could have spent the day at Henry ford museum! You could have stayed here two spair rooms. What airport you flying in to? Haven't flown on that side of Detroit due to metro airspace. Grosse ile is a nice airport and I did all of my flying out of willow run.

I have to work in the ER till midnight tonight, get to bed by 0200, and up at 0600 to be at Vtails hanger by 0745 tomorrow. Not sure which airport - Vtail is the pilot - I am just there to follow Captain Kirks orders.

Re: 2014 diesel production

a) With an EGT readout you know when it needs to idle a bit. Printing a line in the OM is cheaper. To get to my house, the last mile is flat low, speed, speed bumps and idle a bit while I get the back garage door open. Is always cool by then.
b) Stopping at a gas station at a freeway off ramp pulling a load on a hot day is a good time to idle a bit before shutdown. Or could just add an automagic temp triggered oil circulation pump.
c) Maybe they are waiting for the Windows 8.1 launch on the 18th.
