I check the Telsa site every day for a CT diecast.
They did lower the price from $250 to $175 on first the S and X diecasts, then 3 weeks ago all the diecasts. I suspect they are clearing out the old inventory of toys for the "new" models of the updated SEXY cars. I *hope* they make a CT...
Ah, Bryan from Oregon! Fellow AOF member!
Yes, the Alta is what really opened my eyes to Tesla! I bought the Alta on a whim, then it blew my mind with its performance! It immediately became my favorite motorcycle.
When I heard about the CT, and it being stainless steel, I knew it was for...
I hope you're right!
I agree that spot welding would be ideal, it's fast, easy and cheap. I hope that Tesla can do that without heat soaking through the SS panels. I have my doubts. Maybe Tesla (or the car industry) has a better solution than spot welding, and better suggestion that I...
This question is a biggie for me.
I really hope that the inside door stampings are made of stainless steel. If they aren't, they will eventually rust.
I really wonder how the inside door stamping is attached to the 3mm SS door skin. Can't be spot welded without discoloring the outer door...
Well look at that.
This partially assembled battery module was designed by an ex Tesla battery engineer.
The 18650 cells pictured here are epoxied to an aluminum plate that acts as a heat sink. The cells are not removable.
Given that, there is no "fixing" a pack with a bad cell. The entire...
It has a hub motor.
It's a non-starter.
But, "The Crapshoot" is based off an Alta drivetrain. 50hp. Obviously this a one off drag bike, but it would still look awesome in the back of a CT!
Um, yeah. 5 panels need to be aligned. Hood and four doors.
Here's the issue. Typically the fender is adjusted to the door gap (after the door is properly set). In a normal car there's lots of movement in the front fenders, nose, hood, etc. Most cant see 1mm of panel adjustment. Not...
I agree, but I wonder if they will option down the CT to meet the price points that were announced.
Hell, you can't get new $40k pickup truck with four doors with standard anything! My neighbor just bought a Ram 1500, 4wd, 4 door, for $55k plus taxes. Basically $60k. Ouch.
