  4. Not really sure why it's limited to the 2008-2009 model years as no one can point to any changes in the insulation for later models. Also doesn't address fires involving the SAM.....

  6. You might ask John and Elaine ( adelaide J ) for input - they put on some great Ontario drives the last couple of years.
  7. Sounds like a plan; would be good if it was in conjunction with the Plunkett show.
  8. Evilution has a good tutorial; if you don't have a subscription, it's well worth the money for any smart owner. https://www.evilution.co.uk/index.php?menu=chassis&mod=455
  9. Here's someone else with a belt failure - might explain what happened to yours: http://www.smartcarofamerica.com/forums/f4/what-did-you-do-your-smart-today-32039/index351.html#post1626786
  10. Weather looks OK for Saturday, partly cloudy but no snow or rain in the forecast. Temps in the 40s. Bring your FRS/GMRS radios if you have them. We'll be on channel 4 as usual. Have a full gas tank when we start out. This is a scenic drive, not a road race. We'll keep to the speed limits and other traffic laws. Other folks have a right to the roads, so if they need to get into the caravan for some reason, please be courteous. Bring your cameras; hopefully somebody can do some video along the drive. See you Friday!
  11. Weather Forecast Typical Ohio - winter will still be with us. Friday calls for temps in the 50s with some rain, Saturday is worse with temps in the mid-30s, chance of rain mixed with snow and Sunday looks like temps in the 40s, slight chance of rain. Plan accordingly.
  12. Here's the schedule..... Subject to revision, of course: April Fools X Can-Am smart rally schedule Friday, 6 April: afternoon motel check-in 5:00 pm - Meet and greet 6:00 pm - dinner, location TBD Saturday, 7 April: breakfast locally 9:00 am - depart for the Mound Science and Energy Museum, Miamisburg, Ohio 12 noon – lunch in Germantown, Ohio 1:00 pm - scenic drive back to the motel, afternoon free 5:00 pm – depart for dinner 5:30 pm – dinner at Mamma DiSalvo's Ristorante, Kettering, Ohio After dinner free time Sunday, 8 April: breakfast locally hang out prior to leaving for home NOTES: There’s a Tim Hortons at 665 Miamisburg-Centerville Rd, Centerville, OH There is a car wash next to the motel on Yankee Street
  13. Could be a bad sensor (ice covered or corroded?) or possibly a cracked reluctor ring on one of the rear wheels if it's seen a lot of winter driving.
  14. This year the April Fools Rally returns to the Dayton area. Lodging at the Country Inn & Suites by Radisson, Dayton South, OH. Street address is 8277 Yankee St, Dayton, OH 45458. Phone: (937) 425-7400. [Of course, you are free to stay at another place if you desire.] Nothing planned for Friday other than check in at the motel, meet and greet around 6:00 pm and then dinner nearby. Saturday will be laid back; only one short drive at this point, to a local museum and scenic area. Majority of time is set aside for hanging out and schmoozing with old and new friends. More details as they develop. See you in April!
