Those who do not own the Tesla product, the negative they say, should carry no weight whatsoever.

Tesla is a great brand. Some, including the stubborn, jealous, shorts, competitors etc, are going to hate but it is hard not to push back on their nonsense. It can get tiresome to continue, over and over, to have to correct exaggerated, misleading, or outright false information.
Do you understand that the above reads more like proselytizing than like rational support for your preferred brand? People give more weight to calm opinions that include the negatives than to the above kind of prose...
:lol: In your interpretation! I guess you took it as a rant when I was calmly being matter of fact... Never said Tesla brand was perfect just a great brand. And I do have the experience. Maybe you disagree?

Proselytizing doesn't mean "to rant." You are acting like you are trying to expand a religion, and that doesn't require ranting.

I know what it means. You sure you're not pointing at yourself or looking in the mirror? And now I'm joining in on derailing the thread along with you. So...

Following your idiotic logic: physics is based on math, math is based on language and at the end anyone who knows alphabet only is engineer or doctor or chemist or architect. BTW, UPenn is school for yippees.
Being engineer is not about a papers, it is about mastering pretty long list of disciplines before you can become one. Where physics is just a bullet point in the long list.

proof positive that you don't know a thing about engineering.

Edit: sorry to the thread for derailing this further, but I earned my degree, and I won't have a non-engineer tell me how I'm supposed to do my work.

My dad is a “non-engineer” he worked for Rockwell for 30 plus years. He was a lead designer on the B1B, Space shuttle and other military projects. He’s published and famous in some materials topics. Seems
to be much insecurity about titles here. His was senior engineer. Most non-engineers I know are brilliant. Some work for Tesla and other companies here in the valley as a matter of fact. One designed the SC infrastructure for a famous EV.

As Palmer says, this is the M3 thread.

Sure does, especially when you come back and post who did it and how that experience went, along with how your tire wear is. :D

Scientists come up with great questions. Engineers answer them.

It's a ridiculous and entirely inaccurate statement, but I like it. Another one is:

Sciense = ?. Engineering = $.
