    Only one test counts and you can throw all the fancy measuring and expensive measuring equipment out the window from the 20th floor.

    No interchange.
    Not a screw problem but the side rake.
    This on 11 degrees and a standard CDE made by many is 17.

    Tesla clearly states that this is driver assist and not self driving. The problem occurs when it works well so often that people begin to think it can do it all.

    Is this a real question or are you poking?
    I do not know which but discussions over my wording vs yours are sort of a waste.
    If a real question than okay by me as many have never seen dual, triple...

    In my early days I had a friend who had "perfect pitch" and a just this side of insane ability to hear things. She would described it as color tone in her head for every small change with others...

    On line one you do not really teach it but this is a big thing to get in the system. You do not want to make mistakes here. Certainly this should be in there which is why we build test tracks that do...

    I get that you want better. We all do.
    Assume you mean PC or MS-DOS which did not exist 40 years ago.

    I most certainly do have hearing loss but can still hear and sense the color in low end vs. high end speaker systems so this point is lost on me.

    People like what they like and you can not argue audio since none of us are the same in perception.

    While all in favor of expanding your knowledge I do not see how being a C++ wiz or being able to read a x86 hex dump helps in a job as a machinist.
