From my understanding, the range difference was a purposeful sacrifice. They built the SRC into the neck roll to eliminate the possibility of adding any additional noise and decrease in aerodynamics by bolting on any external elements.

At the apex price point most folks hold the quiet and streamline at the top of their list for reasons to pick up such an investment over a more everyday modular. I am not excited about the decrease in range, but I can understand the logic. Some have been affected by it and some have not, I can see in an offroad situation how it could be a line of sight issue.

Yep, that's what I figured too, that it was a known tradeoff to keep their primary goals in line. But maybe, just maybe, they were smart enough to leave a way for some of their users to get better range? Will be interested to hear what they tell you. Thanks!!
