    YouTube's 2X speed playback option is your friend, it makes him seem only slightly long winded....

    Jack Rickards: "This (the Model 3 Battery Pack) is the latest technology in batteries. I would venture that no one; not Volkswagen, not BMW, not Chevrolet, has anything that can approach it. This is probably the finest battery in the world."

    These videos are much better at 1.5x speed haha. This guy really is in love with modules. I guess he sells them as solar energy storage. Gets them cheap when the cars are totalled, then puts his own controller in it and sells them for storage.

    first time around on best battery was around around 1:05:00 (1:09:00 for the main statement but it builds from a few minutes before that).

    There's even a dig at Munro near the end (around 1:23:00)

    Somebody should give the Weber State guys a car to take apart. The bolt videos that they did were fabulous....a video dissertation. Lots of coolant lines hanging from the bottom of that Model 3 vs the Bolt's source/return line to the battery pack. Would have been nice to see where the Model 3 battery pack fasteners were accessed/located. On the Bolt...all fasteners are from accessible from the bottom.

    For reference...here is the Bolt disassembly video from the Weber State folks:

    The coolant lines hanging were to/from the motor and inverter, which you didn't see in the Bolt since that is all in the front of the car.

    Ahhh.....the Bolt also has 3 separate cooling circuits....one of which is dedicated to the battery.

    You can calculate your geek score just by noting how long it took to think "Man, this guy needs an editor!" Thanks, @MP3Mike!

    That could have been a 15 minute video and imparted all the same actual information.

    Agreed. It was slow. But the information was awesome!
