Sounds like we're agreeing. MIMA got effectively "multi-posted" to the degree that now interested members cannot now follow the topic. And to some degree it was unavoidable. But the solution now is to "tighten-up" the fragmenting of new threads so the topic can be followed (e.g. this thread ).Mike Dabrowski 2000 said:John
I split the threads, as the first one got into so many different aspects of MIMA that the throttle based control, the kit configurations, and the user interface options were all being discussed, and people were not able to follow them. At least that is how I saw it.
No need to stop posting about MIMA. The "issues" at hand are how to keep the discussion organized sufficiently such that we don't keep getting "stray" posts RE: "What's MIMA :?: " etc.Mike Dabrowski 2000 said:I will stop posting about MIMA on this group altogether if you would prefer, or focus on the user experience and MIMA progress threads if that makes more sense. As Armin suggest, maybe the answer will be to start a new category only for MIMA?
Yes, its a gas saver at an additional (yet to be measured) cost in batteries and remotely so with some of the other IMA components. And at $3.49/ gal for regular gas the cost effective point is much closer than at the old $1.80/ gal. Personally I am watching this with renewed interest. :!:Mike Dabrowski 2000 said:This MIMA project can help save gas, and show the world that the hybrid offerings of today are not taking full advantage of the intelligent control of the hybrid mix that an aware skilled driver can do. :wink:
Sounds like you need some patents on your design and endeavor to persevere in "selling" it to a manufacturer. But when your ready to come down back with us mere mortals riding around in our Insights I'd hope you'd continue with the battery upgrade options the _will_ help MIMA *SHINE*.Mike Dabrowski 2000 said:I want my next hybrid to have a MIMA like control as a factory option, then I will be happy that I have done something ecologically meaningful, and will have possibly helped re-defing the HHI of future hybrids.
So where do we go from here Mr Moderator?
