  1. My CT would have....

    Yes, t-slot rails are a long rail. Often called 80/20 because of the main manufacturer. They are extremely strong considering their weight. So strong that mounting something like this could easily support someone standing on the edge. There were a bunch of conversations about them...
  2. EV Maker Rivian Plans to Spend $5 Billion on 10,000-Acre Plant

    So I dug a little deeper and the main source as "some experts" is linked Jeff Collins article "Will Irvine-based Rivian be the Tesla of Trucks". If you hadn't noticed, that's Jeff Collins referencing Jeff Collins (himself) as an expert. So who is Jeff Collins? " For more than a decade, Jeff...
  3. My CT would have....

    Not my issue. But would they really be that hard to clean with a built-in air compressor? Sure, if the aggregate is the wrong dimensions then yea, it would suck, but between not doing aggregate and having a compressor I'd rather have the T-slots. Different strokes for different folks, I get...
  4. My CT would have....

    Most of all I want an automated GO-FINDING-A-PARKING-SPACE function. I would looove to be able to pull up the front of an establishment and press "Automatic Valet" button. Is it lazy? Yep. Would it at times be possibly illegal or obnoxious? Also yes. Would it be cool af? Hell yeah! Also...
  5. Cybertruck Frunk

    OK, OK, OK, you've all made great points, changed my mind, and I will be using the frunk. [Tie-down, hi-vis vest, fire extinguisher, first aid kit, probably my go bag, and that rain poncho kit that is still in the wrapper.] Not to change the topic exactly but what's the story with a winch?? I...
  6. Cybertruck Frunk

    sigh... I never said I did or didn't want a frunk or something different. What I said was, Now if your question is what could that space be used for otherwise, I don't know, I hadn't thought about it, I don't have a good answer and I've never had a need for it. Maybe it could be filled with...
  7. Cybertruck Frunk

    So you use the frunk (autocorrect if you put something else there again I'm going throw you across the room) because it's a compact compartment. I get that. What I don't get is why you think anyone would "just pile everything into the bed". Hell, you even use a toolbox as an example because...
  8. Why I'm Getting The F150 Lightning

    "JD Powerhammer, JD Powerrod"
  9. Cybertruck Frunk

    Sure, I'm curious of the CT frunk but I'm curious how often it will actually get used by me or other people. Excuse me while I rant all of the idea of usable frunk, any frunk. The F150 Lightning/Mach-E frunk is supposedly all set up for working and tailgating but that doesn't make sense to me...
  10. Camera based Side Mirrors - What's the user experience? Updates to the CT Interior with additional screens?

    While some people may think drivers don't look based on being nearly killed on a motorcycle, I do the traditional SMOG when changing lanes - Signal, Mirror, Over the Shoulder, Go. I am currently teaching my 15 year old daughter the same. I've been doing this for 34 years so I would have a...
  11. Detroit Three, UAW in talks with White House to set EV sales goals

    Big 2.5... I mean maybe they don't want to have their feelings hurt so we have to say that they are a whole unit but no. Stellantis neé Fiat Chrysler Automobiles neé Chrysler Group neé DaimlerChrysler AG neé Chrysler (1998). Stellantis is based in the Netherlands, they have Fiat, Lancia, Alfa...
  12. Cybertruck bodies?

    If we could just enhance that a bit.
  13. Cybertruck bodies?

    So we're getting excited about wrapped things? I mean my birthday was this month and we won't get a CT till Christmas so I guess it must be true! :)
  14. Q2 Earnings: Whats coming

    "Your cars extended warranty is about to expire. This is your final call.". :)
  15. Q2 Earnings: Whats coming

    Some days you get the bear, some days the bear gets you. I feel like someone put a peanut butter and honey sandwich in my backpack. FU Covid!!!
  16. Q2 Earnings: Whats coming

    That's consumer centric thinking. Amazon, Ford, and others put down an additional $2.5B into Rivian this week. There's plenty of scale in selling enterprise Sprinter and small-cargo e-vans with Ford and Amazon doing fleet management software. Sure, the consumer side will be thin initially but...
  17. Tesla is sticking with yoke steering wheel; Elon Musk says progressive steering is still years away

    This is the only thing about the CT that I am not looking forward to. I will be actively trying to find a way to mod the thing, even in an ugly functional modification. Hell, I'd rather have a giant square than a yoke. This is the one thing that interacts with the entire vehicle. It's like...
  18. CT2 vs CT3 Payload

    I had to reread the OP several times because I think it's saying that the payload will be the most for CT1 and go down from there yet everything I've read says it's the CT3 that will have the 3500 payload. For example...
  19. How can it be so affordable?

    Paint, press, PR is billions of dollars of saving. The question about how its price is cheaper than a Y. My guess is that it isn't cheaper to make and that the price will go like it did for the 3 and the Y. There aren't currently economies of scale, known costs, and/or what the market will...
  20. Rumor: Cybertruck (Not Model Y) Will Kick Off Production at Gigafactory Texas & Use Structural Battery Pack w/ 4680 Battery Cells

    I saw this Tesla Semi electric truck is finally about to go into production https://electrek.co/2021/07/20/tesla-semi-electric-truck-finally-go-into-production/ This is at Giga 1. The Tesla semi uses 4680s ( Tesla Semi is ready for production, but they need the 4680 cells, says Elon Musk...
