  1. DOT numbers required. Best way?

    Not needed. It is really a very modest size machine. Just to save my back when I am certifying septic systems. I think it is the weight of the tow vehicle that determines commercial license requirements. I have a truck that is rated as 10,000 pounds so I do not need a Class 2 license. If it was...
  2. DOT numbers required. Best way?

    I did a magnet test on a sample of 305 stainless steel I bought from McMaster. Maybe similar to the 30x stainless steel of the CT. Cost of around $7 if anyone wants to do ballistic tests or whatever. But the conclusion is that magnets really do not care for this metal. No attraction, so...
  3. Conducting testing on 300 series stainless steel - temperature and bullet test

    I obtained a piece of 305 stainless steel from McMaster. 6” square for about $6.50. I wanted an answer to my question about if magnetic signs might still work on the CT. The answer is that nope, no ferromagnetic activity at all. Do you think this might be indicative of 30x?
  4. VIDEO - Tesla Cybertruck TeraFactory Site Construction Is Well Underway

    I am guessing the columns are 40 feet apart, being the longest steel beams easy to transport. Yes?
  5. VIDEO - Tesla Cybertruck TeraFactory Site Construction Is Well Underway

    Sense of scale: how far apart are the column supports?
  6. DOT numbers required. Best way?

    Given the massive size of the CT and my pulling a backhoe nearly every day, I will need a DOT number on the truck. That is lettering with a dozen alpha-numeric characters on each side, about 4” tall. So does paint stick? I think magnets do not. Decals, vinyl lettering, a wrap, what is the best...
  7. Driving the Cybertruck

    I drive a big honking F350 pulling a backhoe, and a diesel yellow bug for fun.
  8. Driving the Cybertruck

    Not sure if the right category, but I want to ask about driving the truck. My current habits might seem strange to some. I try to not use the brake, ever. I am only partly successful. Using the brake is a sign of defeat. All that energy to gain momentum and you just put it into waste heat in a...
  9. Home Charging System / Charger Kit

    Tesla.com advertises only the one Wall Charger. It does not list it as being compatible with the CT. Should I wait until the Wall Charger is updated or is it a safe buy now? I have a 150 foot run to the CT garage and will need some summer months to get the electrical system in place. Always...
  10. Conducting testing on 300 series stainless steel - temperature and bullet test

    looking up 30x stainless steel plates on McMaster Carr today. 301 6” by 6” plates $26.29; 303 6 x 6” $162.65; 304 6 x 6” for $13.17; 321 6x6 for $18.47. different thicknesses, a bit confusing. But seems like 30x will be close to 304.
  11. Conducting testing on 300 series stainless steel - temperature and bullet test

    Please tell me how ferromagnetic it is. Qualitatively.
  12. Cybertruck wrap / skins color previews -- aftermarket online configurator

    Based on this discussion, no wrap for me. But I do need my company name and logo on sides. What is best? Paint, vinyl, epoxy paint, magnetic? Do magnetic even work on stainless? Other choices?
  13. If you could request three factory add-ons, what would they be?

    #3 probably silly, but I always wanted to be able to flash my headlights alternately, like the emergency people do. It get attention!
  14. If you could request three factory add-ons, what would they be?

    #2 how about the Tesla T hood ornament? I would show it proudly.
  15. If you could request three factory add-ons, what would they be?

    Backup camera shows the ball hitch hook up to a trailer tongue. Use the hydraulic adjustable height to ease onto the trailer, then just lock it and go,
  16. Cybertruck Wrap Ideas?

    The design looks like corona virus.
  17. Check Out Our Tesla Cybertruck Landing Page Concept

    Nice. First frame looks like exhaust under rear wheels. Needs a tuneup? But then I saw it was only dust.
  18. Cybertruck Wrap Ideas?

    600 emery cloth then jewelers rouge, a lot of time, and you can get a mirror finish on that baby. Looking forward to seeing that.
  19. Cybertruck battery size estimate

    I recently bought rechargeable lithium flashlights from China, of course, and they come with a new battery size. Called 18650, they are bigger than a AA, smaller than a C size battery. Are these the same cells that are made in a Tesla battery? Would a Tesla battery, disassembled, run my...
  20. Clear look at Cybertruck touchscreen display UI showing functions and features

    I would like to know more about the energy monitoring. I expect some battery monitoring functions. Total miles per KWH? Miles to go before battery dies? Total KWH consumption to date? Efficiency of usage with respect to acceleration and braking? Regenerative options? How about a scorecard so...
