“It’s difficult to guess what kind of capacity the battery pack would need to be even if you work backwards from the claimed range, considering you’d have to factor in the weight of the truck and whatever it’s hauling.”
Either your timing is impeccable...or you got a tip from a very special someone this morning about this. No hat tip? Take me out of the gray and call it even?
Generally doesn’t matter, but I did have a Bosch filter with a check valve fail on my RSX back in college. Pulled a vacuum on the filter and bound the threads.
