      It's 7000 ****posts by largely one poster for whom this thread is apparently a full-time job, supported by the same group of other posters who ruin every other EV-related thread.

      Renting a Cessna 172SP (commonly used by flight schools, and useful for speed enforcement since it's a high-wing with good downward visibility) would be about $125-150 per engine-running hour,...
    3. Behaviour modification / intermittent...

      Behaviour modification / intermittent reinforcement. The goal is to get you to not exceed the speed limit. There is a constant reminder of the potential outcome, but it's not always actively being...

      That was me. Private/charter is literally my job, I'm a captain for a large charter company. I can describe everything you need to know/ask/do/expect, and provide referrals to good vendors and...

      What the **** does an INDEPENDENT FORUM banning someone have to do with Tesla, Inc.? Tesla didn't ban him from anything. A forum which has this posted on it's front page:


      ...banned someone...
    7. No, he never said that. If 20 people go to...

      No, he never said that. If 20 people go to purchase the exact same Model 3 tomorrow, all 20 will pay the exact same price. No haggling, no "I gotta talk to my manager", no 4-square game on a piece...
    8. Fantastic reliability. :thumbup: If for some...

      Fantastic reliability. :thumbup: If for some strange reason you get a 2012-or-earlier build that has the bad motor bearing design, it's covered under the 8/100000 EV drivetrain warranty and a...

      Too bad, here's a tip anyway :laugh: Here's a video of a guy swapping out bad cells in the pack in his garage, with some links to buy the replacement cells, etc., in case it's helpful. if it's not,...

      Edit: OK, I see that you mean "how could the DEF in the pickup contaminate whatever fuel is in the pickup". I don't know, but if the yahoos who misfueled the pickup contaminated it with DEF, that...
    11. Oooohhhhhh...... I just realized the problem. ...

      Oooohhhhhh...... I just realized the problem. ****.

      The Duramax requires DEF, right? DEF and Jet-A are a BAD mix. DEF causes crystals to form in the Jet-A that clog filters. That's the cause...
    12. He means Jet-A. It's essentially kerosene that...

      He means Jet-A. It's essentially kerosene that burns pretty cleanly. It does not have the detergents and other additives that automotive diesel fuel has. While it will run fine in a diesel engine...
    13. Poll: No. Completely the opposite. Petrol fires...

      No. Completely the opposite.

      Petrol fires require oxygen for the chemical reaction that creates heat ("fire"). A thermal runaway is a self-sustaining chemical reaction that creates heat (it's...
    14. Poll: Not really. N2 is non-corrosive. Once the...

      Not really. N2 is non-corrosive. Once the thermal issue is resolved, drop the pack and replace the affected cells or groups of cells, not the entire pack. I mean, any significant engine fire is...
    15. Poll: Then make an EV class for them to run in instead...

      Then make an EV class for them to run in instead of banning for specious reasons.
    16. Poll: Here's the thing about data: It doesn't care...

      Here's the thing about data: It doesn't care about your beliefs. It just is. I agree, insurance companies will soon use accumulated data to surcharge ICE vehicles for their higher risks.

    17. Poll: Regular cars don't have fire suppression systems,...

      Regular cars don't have fire suppression systems, either. If you want to make the case for comparing a suppression-equipped ICE car with an EV, then you'd have to agree that an EV could also have a...

      Try putting out a gasoline (/diesel/oil/kerosene/Jet-A) fire with water.

      Go ahead. I'll wait. Once you've recovered from the burns, let us know how that went.
    19. Poll: Dihydrogen monoxide. Seriously, just water. ...

      Dihydrogen monoxide.

      Seriously, just water. You need to cool the materials below a temperature where a self-sustaining reaction ("thermal runaway") occurs. That's all there is to it. If a small...
    20. Powertrain should be the absolute last...

      Powertrain should be the absolute last consideration. You can only do 120km/h on the TF-1 highway, anywhere else is going to be just puttering around.

      When I was there for a week in 2017 I had...
