  1. "Ticket Avoidance Mode" hinted at by Tesla

    Imagine if the vehicles could generate crowd-sourced reports of speed traps and stops (including input from radar detector in states where those are not illegal). Add to that some human curating of data (small towns raise $$ with tickets so you have to go ZERO above the limit, but most other...
  2. Ride The Lightning podcast source says tri-motor Cybertruck will have at least 560 miles range + steering wheel has changed from prototype

    I drove nearly 2,500 miles in 2 1/2 once. While I hope to never do THAT again, a 1,000 mile range would make that feasible without lots of 1/2 hour stops at superchargers to get back to 50%, just overnight stops to get to 100%. Even that would be problematic, because wherever I can't keep my...
  3. Elon Musk teases ‘lots of improvements’ for the production Cybertruck

    I wish they'd switch to silicone wiper blades. I've had a pair of Silblade wipers for something like 12 years, and they're still ok (and that's in an area that does see occasional snow, frost, etc). That'd fit in real nicely with an ultra-low-maintenance vehicle. :)
  4. Tesla Cybertruck Will Have Neuralink Controls!

    It could give computer viruses a whole new meaning...
  5. Tesla's 700 Mile Battery Is Coming Sooner Than You Think

    700 isn't excessive. Throw on a heavy trailer, and it won't get you nearly that far. Anyway, without a trailer complicating my life, I've done over 1,200 in a (very long) day; probably be easier with enough automation to reduce the workload. Toss in 5-10 minutes for ICE refill vs 1/2 hour to 50%...
  6. full steering wheel?

    And then there were the Citroen steering wheels: round, but just one heavy spoke at 6 PM. Supposedly the primary advantage was that one couldn't be impaled if some spokes snapped on impact.
  7. We're Giving Away Some Cybertruck Keychains (Contest Inside) [Winners Announced]

    Quiet, reliable, reasonably fast, and does practically anything. :) Oh, and range (tri-motor) long enough for a day on the road, at a price much lower than the upcoming Roadster (not that it isn't tempting too).
