Dude! That was over ten posts ago! I completely forgot all about it already!

How many of us have had aerodynamic wheels which were just non-aerodynamic wheels with flimsy wheelcovers?

Any thread over 20 posts likely has no further info to discuss and inevitably either goes off-topic, or worse, adheres to Godwin's law. I'd say we're ahead by having avoided Godwin's law.

You have agency. You don't need the moderators to start the thread for you.

"It may take you all week, but that is a risk we are willing to take!"

He doesn't have agency, he's a victim.

It's not that he wants to chat about Monty Pyton, he wants to be frotected from the stupid gits who want to chat about them here. It's my fault, really, I thought he came here for abuse- arguments are in room 12A, next door.

Tesla failure

It seems crazy, but there is not a comparable substitute for a Tesla right now. Not when you include manufacturing volume. Features, performance, cost, and availability. I don't see any other mfg keeping pace. Plenty of them could, or maybe have plans to, but currently a Tesla is the best EV you can buy.
I watched an interview with Elon Musk,and he said that (and I'm paraphrasing),that he wasn't that concerned about being run out of business,if it meant that a more capable entity would provide a like product,at a better value than Tesla could.Musk wants to replace internal combustion with zero-carbon,electrically-powered automobiles,which can generally meet the needs of motorists.
Any informed investor would recognize when and if Tesla were compromised as a business model,and an automatic margin call would dump their stock,protecting their capital.
If the 'legacy' carmakers can build a zero-carbon, internal combustion car,then there'll be no need for electric cars.
Last night on CBS News,a new report said we're now looking at a 9F mean average surface temperature increase by 2100.
When Henry Ford's Model T first went in sale in 1908,it's price was in the neighborhood of $685.By the time they pulled the plug on its production in 1927,it was selling for $285.After R&D and Tooling and training is paid for,there's a potential for cost/price reduction,for every additional year the Tesla products stay in production.In the 1980s,Ford was still using holdover components from the 1964-1/2 Mustang on their new Mustangs.American Motors was famous for this trick.

smaller wheels on Model 3

The OEM rubber may be a function of the car's R-R and range.A larger aspect ratio wouldn't alter the aerodynamics necessarily,but it might mean cutting into that battery range.It's taken since 1991 to get these LRR tires,and would be a shame to go backwards.

That's not argument, that's simply contradiction.

[no it's not]
