  1. Qi Charging

    Here's what Ampere shows on my Google Pixel 8 Pro
  2. Plastic trim (roof applique) bowing

    Looks like there are 5 clips on the roof applique and yes, they bridge the roof rack hold down points. They looks like they mate with the sides of the rectangular clips, but it's difficult to tell if it allows any expansion of the applique along it's length. Coefficient of thermal expansion...
  3. Plastic trim (roof applique) bowing

    I saw some Facebook posts (possibly FUD) complaining about the roof mount doors melting/warping unexpectedly and became interested in the plastic composition. I'm not sure if cover plates are the same composition as the appliques, but the matte materials are marked as ASA (acrylic styrene...
  4. Awesome off-road but plastics are too soft

    Any production marks indicating what kind of plastic is used?
  5. AWD Model vs Cyberbeast

    I was thinking about this the other day while trying to Cybertruck sized winter tires (couldn't find any). I was brought up thinking that RWD is better for towing and FWD is better for snow. Since both the Beast and AWD have propulsion in the front and rear while any "heavier" input is made...
  6. PowerShare Mobile Connector (Gen 3) -- Discussion

    Here's what I've been able to charge with so far at home: Gen 1 (?) mobile connector that came with my 2016 Model X on and 50A NEMA 14-50. Gen3 PSMC that came with the truck on the same 50A NEMA 14-50 Gen 1 Universal wall connector purchased around 2017 on a 100A circuit. My wife has the...
  7. Michigan Buyers...

    When I bought my Model X in 2016, there was zero Tesla presence in Michigan. I don't even think there was a supercharger in the state because I had to charge at a 50A Chargepoint in Bay City to make the trip up north. Tesla rented a car for me to drive down to Cleveland to pay and pick up my...
  8. Turn signal idea for 3D printers or accessory vendors.

    Not a bad idea for a person to transition or remap to the buttons, but after driving for a few weeks, I don't think it would be necessary. The ridge between the left and right turn signals provide a tactile reference for the two buttons and the Cybertruck uses tactile physical switches rather...
  9. SbW Steer by Wire testing day review (by a steering systems engineer)

    I wasn't driving when we were doing circles over the large rocks, but the engineer that was said there weren't any abnormal forces on the handwheel due to any road wheel deflection, and the road wheel deflection was minimal to nonexistent. The rocks on that part of the course were approximately...
  10. Cybertruck Deliveries Suspended Temporarily -- due to windshield wiper motor issue

    I've had my Beast (94XX) for a few weeks now and have used my wiper in a few rain showers with no issue. I'm not seeing any movement when not using it at high way speeds and over all, no issues with anything anywhere on the vehicle.
  11. Michigan Tesla Owners Summer Meetup

    Event was a pretty nice. Got to talk to lots of people and share my truck and experiences with them. Lots of influencers speaking on stage (Munro, Bearded Tesla Guy, Dirty Tesla) and many people from out of state and out of country. Probably 10-12 Cybertrucks in total, which was way more than...
  12. SbW Steer by Wire testing day review (by a steering systems engineer)

    I agree. Ergo engineer spend the day watching how everyone was handling the squircle while driving. I'm a conservative driver and mostly drove with my right hand at 4 o'clock while resting my elbow on the center arm rest and left hand off, sometimes using both hands at 10 and 2 when in unsure...
  13. SbW Steer by Wire testing day review (by a steering systems engineer)

    Caveat: I'll be keeping this post a little vague to preserve some anonymity but I'm sure if you want to put energy into snooping you can discover specific details. I'm an embedded software engineer at one of the largest OEM parts provider that engineers and manufactures steering systems for...
  14. Michigan Tesla Owners Summer Meetup

    I know there are a good number of Cybertruck owners in Michigan now. Anyone going to the Tesla Owners Meetup this weekend? I'm contemplating going, but it's almost 3 hours away from me and looks to just be some speakers and Youtubers. Not sure it's worth the time.
  15. Ghost Cybertruck windshield wiper issue! ongoing 5 months no fix!

    Silly question but when they replaced the wiper, did they replace the wiper motor or just the arm? Old wiper motors had 4 or 5 connectors and operate pretty simply simply with discrete electronics for speed control. I'm not sure if Tesla wiper motors that use the camera for rain sensing are...
  16. All Foundation Series owners will receive $2,500 voucher for Tesla Shop (to purchase Powershare Home Backup Equipment or other products)

    Interesting. I'll have to experiment with the various connections I have and report back. My garage setup is a Gen 1 wall connector on a 100A circuit, and a Nema 14-50 plug on a 50A circuit. I used the Gen 1 mobile connector that came with my '16 Model X to charge the Cybertruck with no...
  17. All Foundation Series owners will receive $2,500 voucher for Tesla Shop (to purchase Powershare Home Backup Equipment or other products)

    So if I want to be able to charge another Tesla, I'll need to have the mobile adapter that came with the Cybertruck? The normal mobile connectors that come with all other Tesla vehicles won't charge when plugged into the Cybertruck bed outlets? If this is the case, I wonder how this applies to...
  18. Trade-in vs. CarMax vs. Carvana

    I sold my '16 Model X :cry: to Carvana when I got my Truck. It was really easy to do, only requiring the title (mine was clear) and license. Payment was handled ACH via Plaid and there was a $200 pick up fee. Carvana gave me ~$20k for my 8 year old, near 100k mile Model X while Tesla was only...
