    To AXE or not to AXE? Yes let's AXE!!!

    Looks like a ton of fun. I am curious about your Basecamp. Have you towed it yet? What kind of hit to mileage do you take with it?

    CyberScreen Bed Extension Camping Mod

    Despite overwhelming concern for my wellbeing, the screen setup worked well and I did not end up a bear snack. I slept well and did not feel claustrophobic. I had plenty of room including open space at my head for water and electronics. Night 1: I put the truck into Cybertent mode to level...

    CyberScreen Bed Extension Camping Mod

    I am testing out for the first time tomorrow night. It is secured together by velcro and is strong enough to stick together when you slide it out. It is easier than a tent zipper and slides back in easily. I have thought about sliding the tonneau cover back, but you would still need to move...

    CyberScreen Bed Extension Camping Mod

    Good point...but I feel just as safe as a tent. Guess I could crawl into my cooler if things get hairy.

    CyberScreen Bed Extension Camping Mod

    Action Screens in Vancouver, WA. Paul custom built it on the fly. He has a lot of experience and was great to work with. He has the measurements to make more if you need one.

    CyberScreen Bed Extension Camping Mod

    I was inspired by @puchanix's bed screen cover, but wanted more breathing room...and leg room. These pics are missing the velcro connections, but will give you the idea. I have toyed with the idea of using piano hinges to fold it up and hold it all together but am starting with the easier...

    Washington VIN issued 1 week to deliver

    I got the message I had been waiting for...my CyberTruck is ready for payment. I got it all arranged same day and schedule deliver for less than a week. Just the normal AWD version. I didn't get options like the grey interior or wheels but maybe I missed something. Any tips?

    PowerShare and SPAN Panel versus new 225 panel and sub panel

    What would the benefit of having the two panels be? More capacity, more function?

    PowerShare and SPAN Panel versus new 225 panel and sub panel

    I recently upgraded my solar to an EG4 18K hybrid inverter and am adding a backup battery pack which requires a new 225 panel and sub panel. I am also awaiting the CT Foundation with the PowerShare feature. Tesla already approved me for the PowerShare with my existing system, but I am worried...

    Cybertruck as a tow vehicle

    I have been doing the same...watching YouTube videos of X & Ys towing to get a better idea of what the CT will do. Here is the key difference I can see, but I don't know what real world difference it will make... The CT is wider than the X & Y. It is already pushing more air out of the way...

    Driving the Cybertruck

    What difference do you see by breaking vs coasting? I am curious because the math doesn't work in my head. If you use 100% of your momentum in the coast down to 0 mph versus recovering 30% or even 50% of it, how does it result in better MPW?

    Driving the Cybertruck

    While regenerative breaking is better than two pieces of metal generating waste heat, it does not "make" energy it just doesn't lose as much of it. No regenerative system recovers 100% of the energy. I drive a Leaf and find I get better MPW by not using regenerative braking, but rather...
