      Biggest difference with ICE and EVs is the distribution of labor. The ICE engine is really taking the lions share of the work--it converts liquid fuel to heat and also converts that heat to...

      I actually wonder if the stainless is partly Elon trolling people that were harping on the paint. If I'm being honest, while a huge deal for affected individuals, it really wasn't a huge deal in the...

      Wow, sorry to see this. :(

      It's kind of surreal to have them fly at you. From the track, I'm very used to small chunks of rubber flying at me at much faster than highway speeds, but these things...

      Absolutely this. In addition to construction, some normal road users need TPMS systems to tell them that whump whump noise is a flat, they can't handle the care and feeding of retreads. [Good] fleet...

      Isn't every Tesla custom painted at no charge--I thought no two had the same flaws?

      I absolutely love that color though. It's like it's made out of Gatorade. I've so much internal conflict over this car. :laugh:

      If you're truly high centered on a rock or something, sure, but admittedly it's usually some combination of high centered and slick. As a background, my parents have a camp on the ADKs which is at...

      The M cars have traditionally had larger circumference tires than the regular road cars. It costs more and makes the wheels look "smaller," but bigger rollers can help offset stiff suspension and...

      It is. But scraping out packed snow from under a 4000lb high-centered car is not. :laugh:

      I could take or leave the Taycan. It's a decent option for someone that a.) Doesn't care about price and b.) Doesn't want a Model S for whatever reason. Biggest thing for me is that it means Porsche...

      Oh sure. That's entirely reasonable. What I'm suggesting isn't what's reasonable, exactly. In the Steve Jobs biography, there's a section where he talks about how his father told him to paint the...

      I did think about that--I decided the grill going above the front fascia and back through the hood was replacing it.

      I had already wanted high efficiency to be green and save on energy costs and whatnot, but this was actually the final decision maker for us. It's a new-to-us 110y/o house that exhausted into the...

      Do you need a placeholder to be exactly the same shape? Seems like an exhaust shop could weld something where it goes straight up from the flange and get it over the correct amount with two 30 deg...

      "Highly modified" is subjective, if you see it that way I'm certainly not going to say you're wrong.

      But "...everything we could throw at it..." is a direct quote from MPP, and by my estimate, for...

      Road holding by itself isn't hard to come by--a well used Spec Miata can corner pretty much as hard as a GT Porsche for a couple grand. Similar bushing/alignment/suspension/brake mods to this Model Y...

      I still don't like the grill, but yeah, I think the hate is a little over the top on what is likely otherwise a very good car. Makes me want to irreverently buy one as well. :laugh:
