A real Volt nut. He hacks the Volt computer to bypass limiters. He runs a 0-60 in about 5 the first run and it sounds like the generator is running without a muffler!! Something weird happened. That is at 2:17

At 4:22, he makes a second run at about 5.5 and it sounds a lot better, but he still has a limiter that he can't find.

Crazy. Why mess with a warranty?

Hope this doesn't post twice. Tried it once and it didn't work. Probably waiting for me to post it again.

Cool stuff GM is doing with Onstar. This is being tested in the Volt, but it won't be limited to the Volt.

Very cool.

Such an obtuse and apparently sanctimonious comment requires an explanation.
In other words, what the hell are you trying to say?
Or is being straightforward not your area of expertise?
That comment was straight forward. Your comment was not warranted. If you want to address me in the future, please keep it civil.

Do us all a favor...act like an adult instead of a spoiled child.
Your post was a straight forward deliberate provocation.
And it got what it deserved.

Not anyway anyhow. People that get online to trash talk a product they think is irrelevant are the epitome of silly. You have a foul attitude and you do attack people. The other posters are 100% correct about you.

Guess what ...
What people,(especially you) think..and some of the clowns in this forum think as well, doesn't bother me in the least.
Thinking doesn't seem too prevalent here as a matter of fact!
Your original post was deliberate provocation.
And your latest post proves only one thing.
You came back looking for trouble.
There was no other motive for you to dive into the fray like you did this time.
Take my advice.
Get a life.

So let's put all the angst aside for a minute.
Question...
Who did you have in mind in making the statement "People who get online to trash talk a product they think is irrelevant is the epitome of silly"?
You said that for a reason.
What was the reason?

Explain your stance. It would be a cold day in he'll for you to justify that post as provocation. I spoke my mind which I have a right to do. You posted in response to my comment and I replied back to you. So far you've called me a few names and that brings question of your motive here. The name is Jimmy by the way. Get it right next time.

C'mon now Jimbo, you were sending a message to someone in making that statement.
What was the message, and who were you targeting?
An honest answer please.

Please tell us Jimmy, what names have I called you--other than your own name of course.
And are you so sensitive that a nickname causes you grief?

Your comments contain words that are offensive to us here in America. Maybe you donít see it but your rhetoric is outlandish. How about sir, please, possibly, what I think etc? Try being polite when you comment to others. Thank you, etc?

How about not ďspoiled child, Volt Nut, etc. they are not very nice things to say.

What are you trying to do? Why are you like this? I canít see you acting like this in a professional environment. You would run off your customers and employees.

Before responding to any of that, I would like to see what Jimmy has to say about my questions.
Remember Root, I wasn't even here, and he popped that confrontational post.
And be honest, his post wasn't exactly sweetness and light.
He had a reason for saying what he did,.
There was a message there, and he knows that.
If he can question my words, that cuts both ways.
Root, I respect civility, and will always treat civility with respect.
But when anyone comes at me aggressively, I'll respond in kind.
And without exception, I've been on the receiving end and responded.
Never started a battle, but always ready to do battle when prompted.
