    Eight Foot Bed on Cybertruck

    Expect CT to negotiate USFS roads in the West. Trailering toys(loaded) ditto. Gnarly hard scrabble back country access in the West the BLM/ USFS gated, chained and locked by 1978. So I expect CT to get man and machine back into those places open to public access. Exceptions will occur and...

    Right? IDK how that snippet got posted. You make a great point! Like a fire sprinkler system doesn’t stop fire neither. Just allow escape. It did hold up. Driver would escape due to Armor Glass.

    Cybertruck Tire Size Options What Do You Choose?

    BIG endorsement for Tesla suspension system. Not that Dodge is a worthy test but wheel hop is wheel hop on wet pavement and Teslas are putting traction down. Buy stock in tire companies. Great tires are going to go quick! LOL

    Rumor: CT's spotted on their way to cold weather testing site

    IF any of this is true, the connection to .mil is driving. The exercise is not in alignment, too costly and too weird to test civilian acceptance on military range. The electric motor spec could be a critical procurement item needing verification with intended application. Maaaybe…

    My F150 just reminded me why I want the CyberTruck

    Very cold, wet plug. A bit worn. But those threads! Man what happened to ream out the washer seal? Someone over-tighten? Tesla have effectively EOL mechanics. The point of fixing, maintaining ICE are diminishing returns to the point of zero. But foreign countries, that’s viable dumping...

    Cybertruck as a tow vehicle

    Powered trailer is just a No-Go. The margin for error is too narrow. Trailers are driven by professional truck drivers for reason. They have a point of “no return”. Pulling a trailer, the tow vehicle alignment with the trailer is 1:1 perfectly aligned. Wind gusts hit one side of a trailer is...

    Winch with box on wheels inside vault

    That’s what’s required for fabrication-on-site equipment, tools and specialized trades like pipe fitters, plumbing, fire suppression and welding. Reverse the winch. Afix aboard the movable piece and a hook on the CT only. Plug into CT with longtail cord to keep it tidy.

    CT roof is glass to rack; sloped. Coast Guard is as close to a real roof rack CT gets. CT Overall Height is 75 in. Putting bikes atop CT is no easy reach from tera firma. It makes it tough on “ground crew” who will wrestle overhead weight against gravity to unload any size roof rack atop CT...

    Possibility of dual controls/detachable yoke in Europe/UK/Ireland.

    Sandy Munroe is correct once steer input is drive-by-wire. The necessity to turn the wheel rotationally becomes anachronism. Electronics are response centric and responsible for the adaptive or FM (frequency modulation)smoothing variabilty for inputs/feedback. A stick simplifies the...
