  1. Cybertruck Will be a Towing GOD - Part 1: Torque (Newest Video)

    I didn't realize 6 percent angle is different from a 6 percent grade. I was just plugging numbers into a calculator. I think I implied that. I bet Jane could tell some stories. And Scott. Are you always like this?
  2. How will repeated heavy towing affect overall battery life?

    And what is the effect of the new battery (Model 3)....?
  3. Cybertruck Will be a Towing GOD - Part 1: Torque (Newest Video)

    I daydreamed through my motors class 30 years ago (and stared at my professors turban), but I found a calculator at "robot shop.com" A 20,000 cybertruck (with load) going up the steepest wheelchair ramp allowed (8.3 degrees) for an hour (at 95% efficiency), and maintaining 60 mph on that hill...
  4. Clickbait or valid prediction? "Tesla Cybertruck Will Be Ford's Demise Towards Bankruptcy"

    Regarding pickup trucks, I've owned the following: 1989 Isuzu (2.2L) 1970 F250 (360) 1971 F250 (390) 1977 F150 (351) 1992 F150 (4.9) 1995 F150 (4.9) 1998 E350 (7.3) 2002 F250 (7.3) 2003 F250 (6.0) 2009 F150 (5.4 3V) 2013 F250 (6.7) 1997 F250 (7.3) 2004 Tundra (4.7) 1992 Dodge D2500 (5.9) 2006...
  5. Looking to Cancel your order ? I can help

    This is a very generous offer. In the same vein, if anyone is looking to give away valuable things, I can help by taking them from you. And if anyone needs a referral code, I would generously offer mine to that person--it's the least I could do to help someone out, in this unsure time of need...
  6. Cybertruck Will be a Towing GOD - Part 1: Torque (Newest Video)

    And To sum up the graph, the Tesla pulls like a freight train with the same maximum force until about sixty mph then force drops off (the amount of acceleration) because power output or horsepower has limits. You can see it in drag race videos also of Teslas racing Porsches. The ICE cars...
  7. Name your Cybertruck

    Perhaps like most people, I am going to name it "The Cybertruck." Like I named my Jeep, "The Jeep." But I like "The Terminator" or "Kit."
  8. Cybertruck Will be a Towing GOD - Part 1: Torque (Newest Video)

    So round figures, your 3kg truck produces 310 HP to do 0-60 in 5 seconds. And requires a force of 16.7 kN or 3754 lb. With 33 inch tires that requires motor torque of 5162 lb-ft. And 535 HP to do 0-60 in 2.9 seconds (which pulls almost exactly 1 G)? So, if you drive a 3M toward a wall 41...
  9. How will repeated heavy towing affect overall battery life?

    Pickup trucks are a thing but haven't seen a rifle rack in a while. Maybe back seats and thieves solved the desire for window rifle racks. I keep mine flat in the case in the back seat if I travel with it. I wouldn't trust the scope otherwise. Or thieves.
  10. Cybertruck Will be a Towing GOD - Part 1: Torque (Newest Video)

    The bike performs well with my fat ass (200 lb) going up my steep hill. It's the difference between riding in these hills and not riding. And I travel 28 mph on flat land (up to 32 some spots if I hump it pedaling). I bought it when my job took me further from work and the bike commute...
  11. How will repeated heavy towing affect overall battery life?

    Agreed. I think the warranty situation should cover my uses to allay fears. And I can add cost-per-loaded mile to any job I do with equipment. Without evidence I suspect people from Texas and South African/Canadian U.S. immigrants have different ideas on what a "truck" is. People in Texas...
  12. Cybertruck Will be a Towing GOD - Part 1: Torque (Newest Video)

    I have a $7,000 Optibike that claimed in the 50 mile range.
  13. Cybertruck Will be a Towing GOD - Part 1: Torque (Newest Video)

    The CT will be a towing God? How much stamina, endurance, and life-span does God status require? The CT towing 14k+ will be like a champion powerlifter competing in a Crossfit contest. I agree with the comments that up to a certain speed a Tesla torque curve is flat in a good way. I used an...
  14. How will repeated heavy towing affect overall battery life?

    I'm worried about the cost of degradation to the batteries. If new replacement batteries for a CT are 20K and the batteries are wiped out after 80K miles of abuse (i.e., towing), that's .25 a mile in cost for battery degradation. Even adjusting those numbers up and down, it's a real cost...
  15. Can I flip my Cybertruck for profit?

    I think Tesla broadly interprets "reseller" as someone who purchases with a view at selling rather than consuming regardless of when, whether, or from whom taxes are paid to government entities. I was thinking Tesla probably requires the title be issued in the name of the reservation holder, or...
  16. Can I flip my Cybertruck for profit?

    You figured "This would be the place to ask?" I'll take a stab at an answer (I looked at the order agreement for 5 seconds so consider the source): The Pre-Order Agreement contains the following: "No Resellers; Discontinuation; Cancellation. Tesla and its affiliates sell cars directly to...
  17. How will repeated heavy towing affect overall battery life?

    I see where people take about a 10% hit on battery capacity after driving about 100K miles overall on their Tesla Sedans. But I wonder the probable impact on battery life of heavy towing often. And the overall cost of towing. The worst case is someone that tows heavy 100 miles 5 days a week...
  18. What options or ideas would you like to see available for CT?

    I like Starlink modem. Interesting.
  19. No towing for Model Y, what about Cybertruck towing?

    "In 2016, Elon Musk said that there will be an official tow-hitch option for the Model 3, although none has shown up. The Model Y prototype Tesla revealed last year had what appeared to be a tow-hitch receiver cover plate. And in the past several years, Model 3 and Model Y test vehicles with...
  20. What options or ideas would you like to see available for CT?

    1. Trailer hookup automation (including backing the trailer by phone while you stand by the trailer hitch). 2. Heated cooled driver seat. 3. Fold flat rear seat to hold 100 pound dog so it can look out the rear window (stow stuff under). 4. Extending tow cameras to see around trailer. 5. 240 Amp...
