We believe these changes will also help prevent a fire resulting
from an extremely high speed impact that tears the wheels off the
car, like the other Model S impact fire, which occurred last year in
Mexico. This happened after the vehicle impacted a roundabout at 110
mph (177kmh), shearing off 15 feet (4.5m) of concrete curbwall and
tearing off the left front wheel, then smashing through an eight
foot tall buttressed concrete wall on the other side of the road and
tearing off the right front wheel, before crashing into a tree. The
driver stepped out and walked away with no permanent injuries and a
fire, again limited to the front section of the vehicle, started
several minutes later. The underbody shields will help prevent a
fire even in such a scenario.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
