    No income proof, can I get financed?

    I'm vegan (for health reasons, not for environmental ones) and I thought it was funny. :D

    No income proof, can I get financed?

    According to Bing's AI.... (not sure how much I trust AI responses, but here it is anyway) When you’re paying cash for a car, it might seem puzzling that car dealers still insist on credit checks. After all, you’re not applying for financing or a loan. Let’s explore the reasons behind this...

    No income proof, can I get financed?

    Not sure why. Even cell phone companies do credit checks. It doesn't have any negative effects, so why get upset about a company performing a minimal act to ensure they don't get screwed?

    Does anyone know when... the 20k worth of software for Foundation series will be uploaded to Cybertruck?

    I'm guessing 2 years on FSD for the CT. Things like locking differential(s) and powershare may actually happen within the next year.

    No income proof, can I get financed?

    paid cash for my MYP in October. Tesla’s credit check had a very short term and minimum credit score affects if any at all.

    500 Miles on my Cyber Truck. 400 of them towing a car. Do I need a weight distribution hitch?

    In my opinion, I wouldn't mess with a WD hitch. FIrst off, we don't know if they are approved for use on the CT by Tesla. Most unibody trucks specifically state not to use WD hitches. Second, in all of the towing tests I've seen on YouTube, where the trailer loads are up near the rated CT towing...

    500 Miles on my Cyber Truck. 400 of them towing a car. Do I need a weight distribution hitch?

    I can answer that one just from the picture. Range is TERRIBLE. Sails are big and flat for a reason. :LOL: My Diesel truck would drop from 20 mpg to 12 pulling that trailer at 65 mph. An EV, being more efficient, would drop even more, probably dropping from 2.1 miles/kWh to ~1 mile/kWh.

    500 Miles on my Cyber Truck. 400 of them towing a car. Do I need a weight distribution hitch?

    Get the axle weights measured as Woodrick suggested and you'll know the answer. Without the numbers you can't know whether the WD hitch is prudent.

    Cybertruck hauling hay bales

    100-145 lbs, depending on water content. Average is around 125 lbs for a 3-string bale of alfalpha. Perhaps you're thinking of straw?

    Cyberbeast and Cybertrucks climb Hells Revenge, Moab (on factory A/T tires)

    Probably would be even easier if the truck wasn't at max height so that there was a bit of wheel drop available, and then air down. Nobody that knows what they're doing goes rock crawling at full freeway pressure. But then these guys were trying to tune the truck's software, so they may have...

    Don't worry about lower ranges your first few charging cycles! Estimated range will increase

    This is why, IMO, it only makes sense to dispense with the range number and only show the battery percentage. No matter which range number you choose to display, it will be wrong.

    Don't worry about lower ranges your first few charging cycles! Estimated range will increase

    The range is available on the screen based upon the last 5, 15 (I think) or 30 miles, your choice. The battery icon range is always rated range. Go into the detailed battery usage data and charts if you want other estimates. Tesla isn't hiding this information, just presenting the driver with...

    The interesting motor whine in the Cybertruck Cyberbeast

    Yep, I'm anxiously awaiting Munro's Cybertruck teardown. So far I haven't heard when they might get one though.

    The interesting motor whine in the Cybertruck Cyberbeast

    With Teslas, the motors and reduction gearing are bolted together as a single unit, so determining which is producing the sound from within the cabin isn't really possible.

    The interesting motor whine in the Cybertruck Cyberbeast

    I think most serious race cars use straight-cut gears. This video demonstrates the sound of straight-cut gears really well: Straight Cut Gears (youtube.com)

    The interesting motor whine in the Cybertruck Cyberbeast

    Could it be gear whine from the reduction gears? Maybe they're straight-cut gears vs. traditional helical-cut. Straight cut is more efficient, cheaper and lighter to build and house, and typically stonger, but noisier. The only down side to straight cut is the noise. Cheaper, lighter and more...

    No Cabin Overheat Protection?

    I love that the power icon in the app is a hexagon though, as are the features of the dog mode paw print. :)
