In another, now closed EV thread, said I would ask my neighbor about his Tesla when I saw him.
Talked with him today.

It's his daily driver six years now, he's still on the same battery bank it came with & it has 90,000 miles on it.
He said he saw no drop in ability to hold a charge, or make power. I'd say he probably doesn't know if it has 18650s' or 21700s' in it,,,,, guess it doesn't matter.
I forgot to ask about any maintenance, can't be alot on an EV

I'm not advocating EVs' /// but the battery life alone did impress me, has to be hundreds of charges.

Please don't be a spoiler. Please. Remember, for some of us, it's ALL VOD.

Point taken, was just qualifying though.
I do think it's great you like sports car & prototype racing

btw, I have no vod/streaming/cable/ at all

I don't think you quite understand. I dig "cars, man".
What I don't dig is any racing event results being posted 'out of the blue' without warning. Period.
Can you 'un-read' something Sir? :)
Cool?

Couple things: was super exited for 'The Captains' team getting pole
and
didn't think anyone in a flashlight forum was savoring watching Le Mans qualifying later that day
I was wrong.

Personally always thought qualifying was the highlight of a weekend at Road America,,, it's the only time cars & tires are pushed anywhere near 100%

Hope the rest of your weekend was ok aznsx

Admittedly it looks good, and will likely have insane levels of uncontrollable torque.
