    First principles pondering

    Number 2. Reason is scarcity. Electricity is common. Plus, a supercharger next door has surprisingly little utility. Unless you live in a commercial space. And then, the value lays only with the captive audience, not the joules.

    First principles pondering

    Great conversation! I'm a hydrogen freak, with a hydrogen fetish. It's 100% part of our sustainable energy future, no question. The new 'metallic sponge' storage technologies are absolute game changers, which the gen pop has yet to wrap their heads around. The wonderful thing about H is it...

    Mattracks on CyberTruck?

    I was checking out the Mattracks a few weeks ago... Seemed like it'd be fun to set up a FSD chairlift... Kinda like these guys...Pacific Crest Snowcats - The Best Kept Secret in Tahoe ... Then I saw the price... $10k per corner! yikes!

    Who would commit a down payment today?

    There are a lot of people who wish they could pay to get to the front of the line. You're not alone.

    Cyberturck Updates: Why do you think Elon is doing this...?

    I think he would reveal more, but his handlers at Tesla want to maintain a competitive edge and delay being out-spec-ed.

    StarLink Pre-Orders Now Available

    Seems like a lot of the gateways are in random out of the way areas, maybe security? Keep in mind, those yellow dots will be almost as important to early users as the satellites themselves. You need to be inside a circle that is also occupied by a yellow dot to get service (for now). In Big Sur...

    But How...?

    I dunno, I'm no expert, but I would guess any large cylinder under the truck is an air tank for the mac daddy air-suspension coming on the CT. I think Sandy Munroe mentioned it during the Y teardown video, referring to it as a can, and pointing to where it would likely be on the CT.

    But How...?

    Nothing is stored under the rear seat. Nowhere does it show or claim this.

    Cybertruck Crash Test Predictions

    I'm worried about shear force transfer during a crash. If it's made structural, the battery casing will be subject to massive forces, and will need to be designed to break away before breaking open.

    Retractable Studded Tires

    Q Branch already invented those tires... I think they're in 'The Living Daylights" I had a set of 255 Blizzaks on my V8 Audi, that thing ran doughnuts around my 2dr. Tahoe w/35 12.50 mudders. Winter specific tires are unbeatable in the snow. When I was in Roveniemi I caught a vintage rally...

    I guess I fell into the beta hole, never heard anything from them. Randomly went on to check their site, and found it accepting orders. I believe it just went live today. My interpretation is this marks the end of beta. (?)
