  1. Rumor: There will be no single motor Cybertruck! RWD model will be dual motor.

    Why do they call it "common sense". It's rare as hen's teeth. Er, which Tesla is the one that under promises and over delivers?
  2. At what point does FSD start assisting?

    My office mate (Bill) at one company had this over his desk
  3. Top CYBRTRK model battery lifetime range speculation

    But you don't add 500 miles each time you charge it. If you do what Elon suggests you will plug it in every night when you come home. The average American drives about 10,000 miles a year. That's 27.4 miles a day and you would pick up, therefore, 27.4 miles in each charge cycle for a total of...
  4. At what point does FSD start assisting?

    Certainly the proficiency I developed in Reverse Polish Notation has benefited me to this day (I still use an HP-41C in the form of a simulation on my iPhone but that's not primarily where I get the benefit).
  5. Post your Cybertruck preorder reservation number!

    No, I miscopied the numbers.
  6. Post your Cybertruck preorder reservation number!

    No. 341 and No. 342 contradict one another.
  7. At what point does FSD start assisting?

    Thing is that anyone who knows calculus can easily learn to use Matlab but the reverse path is more difficult. I used to marvel at the young engineers who could do all kinds of things with Matlab but they didn't really know what they were doing. IOW they could develop an algorithm that worked...
  8. At what point does FSD start assisting?

    Radar has the tremendous advantage of being able to see through dust, fog and rain and the secondary advantage of being able to measure distance to a target fairly accurately. Yes, the accoustic sensors are for short range.
  9. Cybertruck trimotor has lowest cost per mile of range among all Teslas

    The clip is only 6:45 long.
  10. At what point does FSD start assisting?

    When you say "size" do you mean radar cross section, accoustic cross section or physical size? There are three sensors looking forward and any of them can detect an object in front of the car. But detection is only part of the problem. The thing detected must be classified as either a threat or...
  11. Cybertruck trimotor has lowest cost per mile of range among all Teslas

    Probably not unless they are in the sound system. Another possible use might be in the regenerative braking system. The energy required to accelerate a 2500 kg vehicle from 0 to 60 is about 3.5 kWh. That's equivalent to approximately 7 miles range in a vehicle that eats 500 Wh/mi. Super...
  12. Cybertruck trimotor has lowest cost per mile of range among all Teslas

    This keeps coming up from time to time. Elon himself has said that there is probably no place for super capacitors in his cars. In various places I have done calculations as to how many super capacitors would be required to add 1 mile of range to the CT. I don't remember the numbers but those...
  13. Rumor: There will be no single motor Cybertruck! RWD model will be dual motor.

    I'm in the know and I have some real estate opportunities I'd like to discuss. Give me a call.
  14. Tesla ... great company , wrong name!!

    No thanks. I know it wasn't only puppies.
  15. Tesla ... great company , wrong name!!

    When I got my X I was fine with this but he (Tesla) in fact invented the alternating current INDUCTION motor (my X has 2), which made it possible to build AC motors as simply or more simply that DC ones thus putting the nail in Edison's (the puppy killer) coffin. But now the company is moving...

    That must have been my twin brother Darryl, or maybe my other brother Darryl. I have only sung Karaoke once in my life in a bar in Auckland and it took lots and lots of that Kiwi beer to get me to do it.
  17. Battery day predictions

    Given the Hibar and Maxwell acquisitions I have to think that they will be talking about using those companys' technologies to produce substantially (but not dramatically) higher specific energy batteries, and thus ones at commensurately lower weight and cost and with commensurately less carbon...
  18. Tesla Service Truck!

    I have often wondered about how they define fleet and how strictly they enforce this policy. I'ts pretty clear that a cab company with 500 vehicles in a city should have its own Super Chargers at its central garage. But what about the guy who works as a site supervisor for a construction company...

    The connection is through WiFi if it is available and that brings up another important point. Most people, in getting ready for delivery, install a Level 2 charger in the garage. It is equally important to have a WiFi hotspot. The vehicle automatically connects to your WiFi hotspot if it is in...

    Putting the sound and fury aside for a moment I know that many here have not owned Teslas and thought they might be interested in knowing a little bit more about what Tesla does with the remote access beyond what I have already mentioned.. First let's go back to OTA software updates. These are...
