What gear am I in?

One unexpected ‘feature’ of BB is that she is always. ALWAYS. In the right gear for every driving condition.
You just regulate the speed with the regen smoothly and she just drives right every time all the time.
I guess years of constantly nursing Marttys manual gearbox with low power has soiled me a little, you had to keep it dialed just right all the time to get it to go, like at all.
Words can not really do it right, you just have to trust me on this one, it’s a very surprising experience, being in the one gear all the time is remarkable.

    Alan Strange and I went to listen to a talk by John Dellaca last Thursday about his time racing the Mini. Very different experience to what you are talking about. They had to change the diff ratio for different race tracks which meant pulling the engine, change the difff, replacing engine! I suspect they would say the Bolt is boring.
