    At 30 minutes, this is a Jack Rickard micro video, but he has interesting things to say and equally interesting speculations about Model 3's drive unit.
    Watch him get nervous as the car starts making clunk-clunk noises, all by itself, at the 24 minute mark.

    I’m sure this is fine, but I refuse to watch him after he got snippy with me when I asked that he add “hour” to his description of the “Tesla 85kilo-watt” battery pack. Apparently that is an unimportant detail.

    Hard to take anything he says as coming from authority after that.

    I think Rickard is spring-loaded to the snippy position.

    That's what's fun about his videos, the lip smacking and old crotchety attitude. :p

    Friday March 9th? I said this in the other thread with a video from this guy; clearly his flux capacitor needs servicing.
