I know im off topic.. but just FYI for whoever is thinking about getting a Activehybrid....
Can you go into more detail regarding the 3 starters? I knew about #3, wasn't sure about #1, and this is the first I've heard of #2.
What exactly do you want to know about the system? Where they are located? Or how the DME decides which starter to use?
