    Bridgestone Alenza AS Ultra are quiet & smooth

    Are you still liking the tires? Are they still quiet and smooth? How are they on concrete and over expand joints?

    255/50r19 quatrac pro on Gemeni w pics

    Now that it’s summer and you’ve had the tires for a while, how are they holding up? Still quiet? Still better over bumps? How’s the power consumption? Would you still recommend them?

    100 AMP electrical service in home, should I install Wall Connector Gen3?

    Residential breakers are 60C/75C rated, so the 90C rating is only useful for derating and cannot go above the 75C rating of 65A in the case of 6awg NMD90 or T90 or R90.

    XPEL XR + and a blueish tinge

    It’s not an issue. It’s the design. It is blueish. They also sell a black tint called XR black. It doesn’t have the same heat rejection properties, but looks more like what you’re expecting.

    100 AMP electrical service in home, should I install Wall Connector Gen3?

    Could be. That is done with 14, 12, and 10 awg cable up here.

    100 AMP electrical service in home, should I install Wall Connector Gen3?

    NMD90 in Canada is not the same as NM-B in The US. You can only use 75A on 90C circuits (which are not found in homes). So, while still adequate, you can run 65a on 75C circuits. I don’t know how Quebec works or even where in Canada the Op is from, but in Ontario we have the ESA that inspects...

    Why does my extension cord strategy fail?

    You need to have the special adapter as well. This is the one I have. https://www.evseadapters.com/products/nema-5-15p-5-20p-to-14-50r-120v-ev-adapter/

    Why does my extension cord strategy fail?

    You do need to also manually turn down the charge current in the car to 12A or less.

    Why does my extension cord strategy fail?

    The problem is that Tesla uses the Line-Line on the 14-50 to get its power from 240V. When you try and use a regular 14-50 to 5-15 adapter, the 5-15 is powering the line-neutral. This leaves the Tesla adapter trying to draw power from the line-the same line, which is nothing. If you want to...

    Retro-fitting HEPA filter in Model Y

    I would imagine a rivet nut stud could allow you to align the part easier without the tabs and just use a nut on top. Looking at McMaster-Carr, I don’t see any with studs longer than 1/2”. I’m going to try an M5 rivet nut, since that lends itself to the hole size in my car. Remember that...

    Retro-fitting HEPA filter in Model Y

    Thanks for this. Are the two existing holes in the correct location to mount? If so, do you just need to enlarge the holes and install rivet nuts? I have the same setup as you with my 2020.

    Retro-fitting HEPA filter in Model Y

    They told me no guarantees that it will fit, since it’s not listed for my car. I said that’s fine. I’ll accept the risk.
