Small road trip with the Zero

Hi everybody,

This year me and my wife were planning on a holiday in Europe with the car and since the weather was this great we decided to go with the Zero. Looked at the weather forecast and it was going to rain in the South of Germany and nothing but sun in the south of UK. So UK it was. We drove to Calais and took the ferry to Dover and followed the south coast to New Forrest and than north to Bath and back to Dover. A nine day trip with a lot of fun and many heads turning.
An off cause a few things popped up which need some improvement. My throttle cable snapped which was quickly fixed, but the way it's mounted to the peddle causes it to wear. The gearshifter rattled in 5th. The interior of the car gets to warm, so I'm thinking of adding additional ventilation openings on the side of the engine bay.
And at the end of the trip the engine started to stall after slowing down on the highway. I have not found the cause yet, but I red on the Emerald site there is a logging function which might help me.

Best regards David
