I'd be worried about someone being able to see up my skirt!:cool: Your 3 year old interior looks fantastic! Can't help with alignment questions.

Thanks and I can say that I am OCD with my interior! :D Hope someone can chime in on the alignment, I am sure @Mad Hungarian knows about this stuff :)

I'm gonna bet you're being OCD about your alignment also. Hopefully?

Yep! it affects tires...which ain't cheap!

Edit: I did replace the OEM tires recently since they wore out sooner than I expected. Went with Goodyear Assurance Maxlife...with a tread wear rating of 820 (85k miles).

How many miles do you have on Quicksilver?

A little over 22k... not much at all. Most of my driving is around town and only been on two road trips.

Edit: Here she was at a brand new Supercharger in Webster, near Galveston...

Although it's at the bottom end of the range your right front camber is still in the "zone", so nothing to worry about. The rest looks spot-on.
I personally don't like that these cars have nearly zero camber up front from the factory, but this is yet another concession to the Great God of Range and it really isn't a huge deal unless you track it.

A work colleague gifted me this today 😊. It used to be on his silver Corvette that he sold many years ago. Also below is a shot of another silver Corvette sporting another Quicksilver plate. I think my plate is still the best Quicksilver (QKSLV3R) out there 😂

Well, it's summer and it's time for our family road trip...Quicksilver visits SpaceX Starbase! The drive and charging were uneventful. After over 400 miles, we had two phantom braking events - they follow in quick succession to each other - and nothing for hundreds of miles later. Each night so far, we have had access to charging and so Sentry mode is always on. Also, after three years of ownership, Quicksilver gets 317 estimated miles fully charged.

After a 1600 miles road trip, this is my stat: driving at 75 mph and A/C set to LO and fan speed at 5...

4 miles from home, on our local highway, an errant plastic lid from a home depot bucket flew out of someone's truck and rolled across several lanes and Quicksilver, unfortunately caught it. As luck would have it, the lid struck the front license plate and my holder and damaged the plate and holder but gave only a very small knick to my PPF at the lower air dam of the car. Phewww! Driving 1600 miles with no incidents then this happened coming so close to home :mad:. PPF saved the day! :)
