He is getting paid handsomely but Sandy is really doing good work. I wish he had done this 3 months ago but better late than never and I appreciate the quality of camera work and his knowledgeable staff.
Truly a benefit to the community

Did this video have the motors and the powertrain? I'm not an expert on the mechanical components of a car and I didn't get to watch the video yet.
Yes, but there's not much to them.

It seems that the two motors in the back are too big or too much. The rivian quad motor has a lot smaller motors then the teslas.
I am leaning towards a dual motor now because I think it must be a lot better set up and not too packed. I am not sure if the tri motor is really needed unless towing the 14k lbs which no longer available or feasible. What do you think.

The tri-motor, absolutely positively is not needed. It ONLY fits in the desired column.

Do a little research on the Tesla Semi motors. It's interesting that a significant amount of travel, with a full load is only on a single motor.
It was a big deal for Tesla to create a method to automatically detach the motors from the drive train.

But generally, in Tesla design, space is reserved for the missing motors. So everything is the same in all models, except for the axle chassis.

It had the rear motors and differentials. They didn't open them up yet.
