I have no idea how you can safely transmit large amounts of electricity into the earth when the earth isn’t the ‘ground’ in a DC circuit. I’ll gladly let you tell me if you know.
    Do Master Electricians know much about cars?

    Depends on your back ground. This one in particular spent the 80’s and early 90’s flying all over the country as well as Mexico and Canada working as a contractor for Delphi. He also spent a decade working maintenance on robotics. So yeah he’s the real deal.

    When they sold the house I grew up in I was helping clean out his shop. I ran across a box with tons of Allen Bradley parts he explained back in the late 70’s he basically made an alarm system using relays and switches instead of a circuit board.

    Anyone in the BR area is welcome to test drive mine. You all haven’t even argued over the autopilot feature yet. I use autopilot on the highway 99% of the time.

    I’m not familiar with it. But in this day and age a Honda Accord can nearly drive itself so while I’m not ready to trust my life to that sort of tech most manufacturers are dabbling in bits and pieces of that world, and it’s a great safety measure for a fully conscious driver to utilize.

    I didn't get the performance model (next time!) so mine does 0-60 in only like 4.5.

    In perspective a newer 5.0 mustang is in the neighborhood of 3.9 so 4.5 isn’t anything to be bashing unless you’re running around claiming it’s a rocket.

    The difference is Teslas are kind of cool.

    Mustangs are only good for busting up curbs
