    Irvine, CA Cybertruck now open to the public

    I'd just like to point out that there are no door handles, the doors will stop a 9mm, the windows are very hard to break... I would never suggest it, but if someone were to try and drive off, how would they stop you? /s

    Cyber Steelie Wheels for Cybertruck - 20" TCS Forged Alloy Steel Wheels by T Sportline

    I didn't realize that you were the final arbiter of what is aesthetically acceptable and what isn't. According to your posts, if you don't like it, it is a "monstrosity" and you are "ruining your truck". How about allowing some variety in taste? Some of the rims out there I like, and some I...

    Crash tests indicate nation's guardrail system can't handle heavy electric vehicles

    It does happen. You see skid marks of an accident that begins 3 or 4 lanes over and they veer over and are 60+ degrees off at time of impact. But, and I agree with what you are saying, what would a barrier need to look like to stop every vehicle on the road from crossing over when hit at 60+...

    Crash tests indicate nation's guardrail system can't handle heavy electric vehicles

    Not really. It is implied in that statement, buried in the article. But like I said, the HEADLINE should be directed at the barriers...

    TCT AeroMaxx Wheels & Aero Covers - 20" Flow Forged wheels by T Sportline

    Dang! those are clean looking wheels and the aero cover really look good. To me, they look better than the "B spec" factory covers.

    Crash tests indicate nation's guardrail system can't handle heavy electric vehicles

    Here’s one (of the many) flaws with that study. They state that the “system was not made to handle vehicles greater than 5,000 lbs. And then they go connect that weight to EVs. Yes, the Rivian is over 5k#, but outside of trucks, almost none of the EVs are over 5k#. The Tesla models 3, Y and S...

    Inozetek Metallic Midnight Green Cybertruck Vinyl Wrap 🔥

    I’ve never wanted a green car of any kind. So this one ain’t for me. But, I can see how someone would like it, and the CT looks cool in color.

    University of Nebraska and AP prove they hate EVs, picking on trucks first.

    First, here is the article… https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2024/02/02/watch-testing-suggests-highway-guardrails-no-match-for-heavy-evs/ Here’s one (of the many) flaws with that study. The state that the “system was not made to handle vehicles greater than 5,000 lbs. And then they go connect...

    Judge Rules Against Elon's Pay Package [⚠️ ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS]

    In reading this thread, and your posts, I get that you are not an EM fan. Ok, cool, no problem.

    Judge Rules Against Elon's Pay Package [⚠️ ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS]

    Exactly how has Elon "over estimated Tesla's AI technology for years" when FSD 12.X is the first iteration of the full end-to-end usage of specialized AI?

    Judge Rules Against Elon's Pay Package [⚠️ ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS]

    The targets that were established in 2018 were unrealistic, and the compensation was just as wild. But he met them, and exceeded them for longer than he needed. Some yo-yo with a single share (might have been a single digit number of shares) brings a suit like this? There is so much about this...

    Judge Rules Against Elon's Pay Package [⚠️ ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS]

    I don’t know that I agree. I don’t think Tesla has reached a level of critical mass that can succeed without him, especially in the international world. He is very involved with Tesla, and the accusation regarding Twitter appears to be somewhat overstated. As for the attention, I think the media...

    4680 Battery Chemistry Upgrade reference:

    As I recall, they were looking at three options. An 811, and a 955 mix. Additionally, an asymmetric roll. Did they say for certain which way they were going? Did they say they were ready for production? I was thinking when they talked about 4680 lines spooling up in “just a few months” that was...

    I bought the OMFG decal so you don't have to | Worth it? *no

    Agreed! I think it looks good enough I'm going to forego all the "short school bus" jokes!

    Nema 14-50 charge rate.

    Are we sure about this? Here is why I ask... My wife has a PHEV with a 16amp max charging rate. Fortunately, the battery only has a 32 mile range, so it charges completely in 3 -4 hours. So when I added the 220v circuit, I added a 20A breaker. The L2 charger I bought will go up to 40A, but is...

    Anyone DIY wrap their Cybertruck?

    Depends! If you ran him over with the CT, he’s probably flat enough to be unnoticed.
