Engineering guru Sandy Munro has his own engineering firm that has been telling car makers for decades how to improve their car designs and carmaking processes. Sandy was very impressed with what Tesla revealed on battery day. The main things Sandy highlighted are
* the large battery cell
* cooling the cells from the bottom
* integrating the cells as structural components of the car
* large castings for the the front of the car, back of the car and the top and bottom of the battery area
