  1. Pikes Peak International Hill Climb

    It may be the research truck, "Switchgear" - basically an electric Ford Raptor. There were some videos a month or two ago on it. This is something Ford uses as a research platform to see what works and what does not. It would be a good stage for them to see how people react and how it performs.
  2. Cybertruck V2 Range 500-640 Confirmed Possible - Battery Compartment Space

    Nope - the tear down video by Sandy Munro shows there is only about 33 mm of space there, far less than the 80mm plus extra needed for colling/connections to add another stack. They stat the space is for two main purposes - gas control upon a thermal runaway and as crash protection in case...
  3. My CyberTruck is finally fixed: Cost & Timeline revealed

    Glad things worked out. However, there is still a hidden negative by not contesting the claim with the other party's insurance company. If you do not contest it and file a claim, you will be found at fault as (as you noted) that is what she reported to her insurance company. Being at fault...
  4. Ladder Rack - that elon drove to ground breaking

    I do not know about that one. However, there was this modular system on the boards a while ago. https://www.cyberrak.com/
  5. Time to end the Foundation series.

    To know when the FS ends, one just needs to look back at the overall business strategy of Tesla when Elon took over as it is still used today. 1 - Make an expensive, niche vehicle that appeals to a smaller number of higher-income individuals (model S) 2 - Use that to fund another vehicle that...
  6. Cyberbeast wheel covers

    Now, these, I like!
  7. Chevy Silverado EV RST functionality (tailgate, rear window, midgate, range, HUD) blows away Cybertruck

    I think many people are looking at trucks as a one-size-fits-all solution. They really aren't. There is a reason Ford has so many trim levels and why you rarely see Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, Limited, or even XLT on most (or any) job sites - cost. From Ford's own customer research, 80%-85%...
  8. RN1130’s Order Confirmed: Here we go, folks!

    RN11308xxxx here - based upon the pace of invites so far, and the recent ramp in production, I would expect you and I to both receive invites in the May/June timeframe. Now delivery, that is another question. AWDs seem to be keeping track about 3 months after the order (give or take a month or...
  9. HF, VHF/UHF antenna (for HAM radio) install on my Cybertruck, works really well! 📶

    Very nice! Thank you for the report! I am guessing you can probably fish that link down the back of the truck, under the bed cover, around the tonneau and back into the cabin. All of that sits on top of the battery, so there has to be a way to get it in there. How are you mounting the heads?
  10. Shouldn’t Cybertruck have 5G?

    You are correct that the generalized stated does not cover everything - but it was a generalization. The old Sprint frequencies now owned by T-Mobile are a great example and why their coverage is better than many others when combined with the original T-Mobile spectrum. Of course, it...
  11. Shouldn’t Cybertruck have 5G?

    T-Mobile announced a deal with BMX in 2022 for the 2023 iX and i4 (I believe those were the two electrics involved) to be the first with 5G. Audi is adding 5G to some of their cars later this year and GM is talking about it (but we will see if that happens). So, Tesla is not behind the times...
  12. Shouldn’t Cybertruck have 5G?

    There are a couple of things at play here: - Cost. Providers are charging more for 5G - Signal/Peformance. 5G frequencies are shorter wavelengths than 4G (or even 3G) - meaning they are easily blocked resulting in slower speeds. A moving vehicle with hills, buildings, and other obstructions...
  13. Citrisurf 77 for surface rust?

    You can go to service.tesla.com login, select Cybertruck, and it is in the DIY - Cleaning section. They actually say any mild citric-acid cleaner and then clean and wipe down with alcohol wipes after that. CitriSurf 77 was just an example. This is a stainles steel rust remover. Basically...
  14. My Cybertruck experience after 2 Weeks, +6400 Miles and over-landing adventure in Utah

    Sounds like a great time! For the Starlink option, Unplugged Performance has their own set of cross bars. They list them as a set of four - but you may ask about a single or double pack. Once you have something to mount it to, I don't think it would be that big of an issue. Tesla Cybertruck...
  15. Cybertruck is inductive charging ready! Battery connector harness spotted in Service Manual

    The current wireless charging tests are getting closer to fast DC charging speeds. So, once up and going, about 1%/minute for many vehicles. You would lose some of that time with connecting/validating - but if you could get 5%-10% when idling over the course of a trip - it would make a...
  16. Frunk Auxiliary Power Tap / Power Feed Specs (48V and 400W)

    Check your winch, many of them will pull 600 Cold Crank Amps when they start. The CT's 240V (and 120V) outlets are limited to 40A - as long as the drop down DC-DC conversion does not exceed this, you may be fine. Another option is to drop in a deep cycle battery (like an Optima Yellowtop with...
  17. Cybertruck is inductive charging ready! Battery connector harness spotted in Service Manual

    Looking at the comments here, I believe most are missing the poi t of the bigger (future) picture. Think 10 to 20 years ahead. How do you future-proof the vehicle, eliminate range anxiety, and remove the perception of increased expense with an electric vehicle (perception being the key word...
  18. Are CYBERBEASTs finally coming with over head light bar?

    I believe it is installed at the service center when available. It does not arrive at the SC installed. Apparently, most of those delivered are still waiting for it.
  19. Tinted DRL light bar strip

    Actually, JerryRigEverything in a snow video and Kyle from Out of Spec had a good reason (JerryRigEverything actually pinpointed why). In snow, the DLR reflects on the falling snow, making it more difficult to see at night (Kyle called the headlights garbage in the snow). So, a tinted DLR for...
  20. It Happened! AWD FS VIN Assigned and Delivery Completed! DFW, TX

    Congrats! We will need to have a DFW CT get together when the rest of us receive ours!
