    The Limiting Factor Wraps Up it's 13-part Battery Video Series.

    Very sorry to step on your toes, Crissa. I never could dance. Too tall and lanky. I searched the forum a little, should have searched more. Why didn't you put that in the battery section of the forum?

    The Limiting Factor Wraps Up it's 13-part Battery Video Series.

    The latest video from Jordan Giesige at "The Limiting Factor" was just released and it concludes his thirteen-part series that began nine months ago, a few weeks before Tesla's "Battery Day". If you know anything about battery chemistry, it is quite compelling to view. It is 74 minutes divided...

    What would prevent your purchase?

    No ability to attach racks which will safely carry a 40 foot ladder. That's the only no-go I have.

    Elon Musk: Tesla Cybertruck update coming next quarter as it focuses on production currently

    I was hoping that someone ELSE would use simple logic to come up with the REAL reason that updated CT's are not available for us to see. It's very simple. They don't have an operational 8000 ton IDRA press. They only have the 6000 ton variety. This means they can not make the larger castings...

    Cybertruck Exoskeleton patent shows how it's a protection shield

    A dead-blow hammer was used to impact the doors at the CT reveal. The hammer's head is hollow, and there's ball bearings inside of it. At the moment of impact the balls move and dissipate any rebound. The "blow" is "dead". Without a dead blow hammer, there would be a rather large danger of...

    Elon Musk: Tesla Cybertruck update coming next quarter as it focuses on production currently

    They could remove the rear seats and doors, then move the vault mechanism and partition forward... without altering the roofline.

    Elon Musk: Tesla Cybertruck update coming next quarter as it focuses on production currently

    DANGER! THUNK WARNING! Ford's Lightning prototype launch started me thinking! Why is CT's face-to-face reveal taking so long after it was teased so long ago? Why can't they just put a few out, where we can get close enough to touch it? The reveal is taking so long because Tesla wants to...

    Eight Foot Bed on Cybertruck

    I expect the CT to be the best off-road pickup (in stock trim) of all time. Electric motors being able to INSTANTLY provide maximum torque to the wheels, AT ANY SPEED is something that has not yet been experienced by many people. I have heard it's nice. Add the ability to modulate that torque...

    What SOC to keep tri-motor CT at?

    As for WoodWombat's statements about (vehicle) performance at battery state-of-charge (SOC), well, ....duh. Each and every cell in the battery pack is charged to "full" when it's voltage is 4.2V. ( I assume that Tesla uses this standard voltage as it's cutoff point.) As soon as you start...

    What SOC to keep tri-motor CT at?

    If you are really interested in this topic, battery university dot com is where you should start. I will quote one line of the article. "The worst situation is keeping a fully charged battery at elevated temperatures." how_to_prolong_lithium_based_batteries-BatteryUniversity I will quote one...

    What SOC to keep tri-motor CT at?

    To extend battery lifetime, it is very simple. Keep the cells in their comfort zone at all times. Do not stretch them in either charge or discharge direction. High heat plays a role when fully charged. Cold can also be a problem, but only if over-discharged. For super-long lifetime you want...

    Elon: Cybertruck will not have door handles!

    I don't think people realize how having three-eighths inch thick steel changes things. It's a completely different animal than the tin can sheet metal you're used to seeing. Almost every time I read this forum, I see a place where I'd like to make this distinction. If your door gets frozen you...

    CT's Airbag Suspension?

    Predictions for the top 3 Cybertruck exterior modifications

    So you're saying it's impossible for the circuit to become energized when it's not supposed to be energized. I'm sure you can get it to ninety-nine point several more nines percent reliable, but that one time out of a trillion that it becomes non-reliable it's a death sentence if traveling at...

    Predictions for the top 3 Cybertruck exterior modifications

    In my mind, there is still only one answer to the question of most popular exterior mod: Ladder Rack. But getting back to this "Electric Tint" first mentioned by piperwarrior99, in Post 22 of this thread: just yesterday Mister Quirksandfeatures reviewed a 2006 Maybach 62 which has a sunroof...

    How Much will the Tailgate Weigh?

    Unless I missed one, so far, we have four guesses. Shown in pounds. Let's get some more please. 168: Me 155: Newton (Or 70 kilos) 80 : rr6013. 110: Fully Grounded

    How Much will the Tailgate Weigh?

    Well, at some point, the damn thing is going to have to be completely removed off of it's hinges, right? Will that mean you need four people to lift it? How many fingers do you lose if there's a mistake? Chain hoist? Forklift? And c'mon, quit chickening out and give me your guess, in pounds.

    How Much will the Tailgate Weigh?

    I think the CYBRTRK tailgate will be much heavier than any other tailgate anybody has seen before. I think most of you will agree with me. The question is: How much will it weigh? I think with the (optional?) slide-out ramp, it will be far over 100 pounds. Possibly approaching 200 pounds. Will...

    Welding on body?

    Weld a sheet to the rear door, hinged just below where the CT's 3/8 inch thick steel bends. Add a strut or two to hold it up. Viola, your new welding table.

    Who here plans on NOT babying their Cybertruck and will use it for heavy work?

    In my job at the apartment complex, every ten days or so I have to empty the dog cans. I figure all eight cans add up to about 300 pounds. The rest of the time my truck is no more than a rolling toolbox, maybe haul some drywall occasionally. I swear to dawg, in terms of total payload weight...
