    JD Power U.S. EV Experience Ownership Study (link to survey included)

    Didn't see this posted yet so I thought I would share. Given all the weird anti- EV surveys and polls out there lately I have made an effort to make sure I participate to give my opinion when invited. Took me about 15 minutes to complete it. The questions were objective in my opinion.

    New Tire Option S00n: Toyo Open Country A/T III EV

    Since these are EV truck/ SUV specific I wonder if they will make a 21 inch size for those folks still waiting for replacement options. I had the A/T III on my Tacoma and really liked them. Hopefully this is equally good.

    ⚡️Watch Ken Block Smoke Las Vegas in His Custom Audi S1 “Hoonitron” EV⚡️

    I always enjoy the Gymkhana videos. This is the first ever run in an EV. The scenery is not as interesting as other videos, but it’s not Ken Block’s fault Las Vegas is a commercialized concrete jungle. At one point he’s doing donuts in front of A Tony Roma’s Steak & Lobster🤣 Still fun to watch...

    Elon Musk Is High On His Own Supply (Humanoid "robots" will be available in 10 years!)

    Supply of what you ask? There are probably multiple answers to that question, but in this case I'd say he's high on his own supply of constant, never-ending bull$hit.
