    Hey everyone! I'm new here, but I'm a big fan of the Tesla cars. My uncle works across the street from HQ at the Stanford research labs and fell in love with the roadster after my first test drive. Anyways, a buddy of mine and his Tesla were just featured on a local Washington, DC website and I'd thought I'd share:

    BTW, I currently have a Prius and a Viper so I'm definitely straddling the lines between the old and new school. Here is a short video of my first test drive:

    Yes, thanks for posting that.

    And I think you answered your own question in the video (came up with appropriate words!) :biggrin:

    After accelerating with the the smooth continuous torque of an electric, your senses actually get bothered by the noise and vibration of an infernal combustion engine. All those explosions get in the way you and the road. Without smoke or heat, EVs are the pure experience.

    On country roads your camera operator will like the sounds of life outside the car.
