Anyone do a horn upgrade?

I've heard louder horns on mopeds. Has anyone put an old Fiat horn on their Focus? I'm thinking about upgrading mine. It's just pathetic.

Re: How to increase regen in L gear

My 2014 Fusion Energi would have to be in D going down my steep driveway or the engine would come on. The Focus has got a little more regen braking in my experience as well. Do you all drive in L as well, or is this purely personal preference? Driving through Silicon Valley every day requires quite ...

Re: Breaker size for 2018 Focus Electric

As long as the EVSE is wired with 8 gauge wire, it should be OK. Smaller than that I would hesitate and see if the wire can be re-run. I would think they'd use the correct size wire on the charger itself as delivered from the factory. Here's the info I found in the manual. I suppose I could open up...

Re: Breaker size for 2018 Focus Electric

Oh and my friend is a licensed electrician and he does all my wiring stuff. So, if your friend is a licensed electrician, have to ask why you are getting your wiring questions answered from an Internet forum? You should be telling us what needs to be done!!! He's pretty busy and no longer does elec...

Re: Breaker size for 2018 Focus Electric

Thanks! The charger is wired directly into the breaker panel with the leads that came with the charger. Sounds like I should get a 40A breaker then.

The panel was upgraded when the Solar City install was done under the previous homeowner, so it should be fine.

Breaker size for 2018 Focus Electric

Guys, I bought a 2018 white Electric today. I'm pretty stoked! However, after a few mins of charging it tripped the 20 amp breaker I had my Clipper Creek HCS-40 wired to. I used to have a Fusion Energi which didn't have much current draw. Oh and the sales guy delivered the car since I had my Shelby ...

Re: 1 Year In, thoughts on my FFE

Funny you should say that, I just read this article today: The Stick Shift is dead, long live the Stick Shift This is the one thing I am very sad to be losing as I replace my old Civic with an FFE. I understand why a manual transmission is unnecessary in an EV, but I will miss it. I (and a few peop...
