      My name goes on that line.

      Imaj, Converj, El Miraj, etc. :thumbup:

      I remember a thread AGES ago when this fad started (i.e. Following the two German marques with the sales leads) and some of us noted how an alphabet soup...

      That's only true if you try to use REAL words/names. What Cadillac has done with their CONCEPTS since A&S started was pure genius in naming IMHO. Especially in an age where damn near every name has...

      I guess it all depends on your beliefs.

      I feel there is a need to start down the path towards electrification and the transition will only be beneficial if the trend is towards growth in that...

      No offense, but what did you expect out of a Sentra? :confused: It's a commuter through and through. I love me some manuals, but a stick in a Sentra will hardly make a difference... and it'll...

      Good point. I remember seeing an Audi CVT tear-down ages ago, but can't recall if they require similar clamping forces as you'd have with the VD belts. I thought they figured out some "belt" or...

      Well, application history helped build that reputation/image, no?

      Usually better performance (and there are a lot of measurements) means better product, but CVTs have historically come with torque...

      I wonder if this decision has more to do with reliability/torque capacity and the like. That is usually a limiting factor.

      I know Audi and Nissan have developed around the traditional Van Doorne...

      :laugh:

      For the record, I've never loved the ATS, SRX, base CTS cluster. I found the design too sophomoric for the class that is Cadillac. It actually looks like a remnant of the initial A&S CTS...

      This.

      The amount of trouble for the paltry quantity they tooled up for makes any business/finance person cringe, but when GM said it would use every TOOL in its TOOLBOX to afford us more...

      You might have something there.

      Make all roads toll and privately owned. That will rid us of a lot of drivers that take driving for granted. That will push more to private bus service, which opens...

      I wonder... did Ford copyright both "Model E" and "Model e"? Could Tesla have taken lower case?

      I have no idea. I bought a Specialized Elite Disc commuter in the fall of last year. November ish. I wouldn't think anything would be failing yet.

      I guess I haven't done the math, but I don't think it is the chain now because it happens on each revolution.

      I checked to make sure nothing was touching the FD first. Nada. I'll check for all bolts tomorrow. I just tugged and wiggled and jiggled for anything loose the first time and didn't notice anything.

      Damn, this is only the second year riding. That's kind of quick to be wearing/breaking, no?
