    YouTube no longer playing full length movies.

    Looks like YouTube has locked down their movies. Or possibly 6.10 is messing with it. Tv episodes play just fine

    Studded tire recommendations ?

    I'm in the PNW, and the winter is supposed to be wild this year. I have to take my elderly mother places quite often and being in Portland the ice is usually pretty gnarly. I'm looking for studded tires. Would you go for the 19" or go down to a 18" wheel for winter tires? Also is there...

    Frustrated... again... (a bit of a rant)

    I want to preface this by saying I thought I had a good working relationship with my service advisor. My 21 Premium is in the shop again for warranty items. The B-pillar cracking issue, Driver's seat cushion, Puddle lamp pony disintegrating, and lastly trim replacement (the piece that needs...

    DCFC and SOC weirdness

    When I dcfc. I usually run it up to about 80 % or so. However I’ve noticed the time to go from 70 to 80 is not the same to go from 80 to 90 I’m not saying it’s slower. I’m saying it’s faster. At a 50kw charger I drop from 43 pre 80 to 32kw pre 90. Yet it takes less time. I’m sure there...
