    Cybertruck Size & Inconsiderate people

    There's a very fine line between people from New York vs Boston. It's mainly the accent.

    Cybertruck Size & Inconsiderate people

    [two cents] I'm a New Yorker. The speed limit is only 50 MPH in NYC and there are thousands of cameras that give you a ticket for going over 25 miles per hour on most of our roads (Unfortunately, this is not a joke). We tend to be aggressive in other ways because the traffic is so bad that we...

    So…I modified my order….

    That's exactly what I was wondering. My reservation is for a dual motor. I'll keep it that way until they start actually producing them and I see whether the tri-motor reservations are getting calls first.

    Tesla should contact customers in RESERVATION # ORDER, regardless of motor choice... right?

    It's a 2016, but I got it January of 2017... it has 70,000 miles, so the lemon laws don't cover it. That said, I need to find out what my rights are waiting 3 months for an extended warranty repair. The last time we spoke, they said they still can't figure out what's wrong with it.

    Tesla should contact customers in RESERVATION # ORDER, regardless of motor choice... right?

    If the rumors are true, they'll start production exclusively with tri-motors for at least 6 months before building anything else because the higher prices help them recover the costs of building their new factories. The list of tri-motor reservations is huge, so they're not likely to offer...

    Tesla should contact customers in RESERVATION # ORDER, regardless of motor choice... right?

    I called two Tesla offices in NJ the day before posting this asking them if I could change the order to whichever is being built first. The first was a Tesla Store and they weren’t sure, so they told me to call the second office, where I was told specifically that for them to change it would...

    Custom vanity license plates - have you ordered yours yet??

    Unfortunately, there will be no 21 CyberTrucks, but that's a good one.

    Mid-gate Impossible? Best cab sleeping solution for one? - or kookiest idea yet?

    True. It’s funny how often somebody will ask for something small like that and his one sentence replies leave you wondering the likelihood of seeing them come true. Meanwhile, something that seems much more difficult, such as 4 wheel steering just pop into existence. I’d love to see a full...

    Mid-gate Impossible? Best cab sleeping solution for one? - or kookiest idea yet?

    I wouldn't even think of sleeping without a cap. Even with lighting, it's definitely out of the question, but I'm sure all the big accessory companies (LEER, A.R.E., BestTop, etc.) will make a perfect top with plenty of headroom for those looking for a low cost way to camp out.

    Mid-gate Impossible? Best cab sleeping solution for one? - or kookiest idea yet?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Elon Musk say that the Vault is climate controlled, and that the mid-gate drop might be an option? Even if it doesn't drop, he did say it was climate controlled, so I'm guessing there will be a lot of truck cap companies making some sort of simple cap that...

    Giga Austin to start production of Cybertruck in Q3?

    Musk was quoted a few times saying that they're good at the first ones off the line, then the middle ones are a bit lower quality, then finally they work out the kinks and the rest of the line has fewer issues. Here's an excerpt from his interview with Sandy Munro...

    Giga Austin to start production of Cybertruck in Q3?

    Quality is actually better than average at the start of production because they spend a lot more time going over every detail. It’s as if each one is hand crafted. The second wave is where they bring on scale and less skilled people join the line and things get potentially sloppy. Eventually...

    Cybertruck wishlist - options or ideas you'd like to see available?

    Yes. But a folding mid gate could mean keeping the Vault closed, and sleeping under the stars in an air conditioned / heated (and bulletproof) space without packing a tent.

    Cybertruck wishlist - options or ideas you'd like to see available?

    Here's my list: 1. Powered gate. I HATE lifting the gate on my F-150, especially when my hands are full from unloading it. It's super heavy, and I'm sure the CT will be even heavier because of the ramp. 2. Folding MidGate. This would not only make longer items easier to haul, but make...

    Tent + kitchen setup: a bit impractical

    If the midgate drops flat, that would be HUGE for sleeping in comfort under the stars... It doesn't seem likely because they've never mentioned it could and Musk said it would be pretty much what they showed with only a few improvements. But then again, they didn't show 4 wheel steering at the...
