I agree 100%.

Further I wish product were top notch. I am going to start producing my own
EV product soon because of stories (well and my car is going to need them as
completion approaches) about chargers that don't work and that don't have
class A or B noise rejection, balancers that are not precise or high enough
current. Ah but then there are the balancers that do work but cost a grand!!
I think that is wrong too!

Something that is wrong as far as the thinking on this least is concerned. I
see a lot of talk that when the car manufacturers start building EVs that
the home builder is going to go away. I see the opposite. As people see that
it can really be done, that electric cars really do work, you will see a
GROWTH in the hobbyist side of electric cars. This happens because the
garage mechanic knows he can do it better than the car builders. This is
what has kept the "Hot Rod" industry going for 50 years. Wayland knows that
the manufacturers will never build a car that does what his does.

I believe the back yard EV is just beginning but to flourish will need
QUALITY product to buy and build with, and there are plenty of people with
big money to buy really nice product.

Just my two amps.
