    Has anyone ever noticed a stinky smell entering the cabin when you give your model s full throttle for a moment to speed up quick? I can't tell where the smell comes from is it from my batteries or motors or cables heating up or operating near peak performance doing this or am I imagining things just when I pass smelly areas ok the freeway sometimes?

    Switch off climate control fan to estimate does it come from outside or HVAC unit or smell is coming from inside.
