    FSD beta in snow-ish

    iv been wondering how the FSD will deal with snow and otherwise bad road conditions. this little video from a youtuber DirtyTesla shows the beta is doing just ok on recently plowed roads. overall im kinda impressed, clearly it had issues and there's tons of work to be done on the software...

    Waiting for Tesla van...

    So, on the earnings call Elon said they will be making a van at some point... this is what I REALLY want... the CT was kind of a stop-gap for that. now that its a certainty I might be just waiting for that, 5 years is my guess... had a dream about it a week or so ago, I guess its something I...

    camera side mirror on leaf

    Testing out replacing my side mirrors with cameras. So far it's great, easier too see at night throught my tinted front windows and in rain (unless the camera gets too wet,will eventually enclose it.) I'll put 1 on the other side too, to see if it increases efficiency.(as I hear side mirrors...

    Cybertruck News From Battery Day: A/C Controls in Bed Possible and 200k-300k Annual Production Estimate

    only, they will almost certainly put a/c in the bed/vault area. and production will try to be 200-300k vehicles per year, i think thats all. also they are using different battery chemistrys for different products, so ct and semi will use the best basically, high cycle life, high range. Here's...

    Tesla dojo, FSD timeline

    I typically have been saying a timeline of 7-10 years for fsd. Based on where were at (not just Tesla). 2 years for limited area specific routes. BUT I didn't know about this Dojo project which is aparently a supercomputer tesla is making. I'm thinking they will have news about it at the...

    interesting visual

    I was filling up petrol gas cans today, made me think... these 5, 5 gallon cans are equal to 25gallons×45mpg(in this prius) 1125 miles Or basically the equilevent of about 4 tesla battery packs. Funny, interesting thought to me. I doubt batteries will ever get that energy dense, and I...

UPDATE 12x12inch plate in sun for about 3-4 HOURS @ about 85F outside temp... stock finish getting to about 150F mirrored...

I live near fremont and know people who work there, it's long hours, hard work, for little pay(for the area). I'm of the thought that if people are...

    Charging directly from solar panels

    Hey all, I'm thinking of making a simple fold out 4 panel system that will sit on top of the bed slope. for when I take trips deep into the woods. my questions are: -Will I need a battery buffer between the panels and inverter that the 120v tesla charger will plug into? Like if a cloud passes...

    What about floating?

    Elon says CT will float a bit. That doesn't really mean much because all cars float a bit before sinking. but what I'f its actually very water tight? But I have always wanted a floating truck... top gear style... basically 55gal drums stacked around the outside of the truck. I figure with CT...

    anyone else want a camera-less truck?

    I'm wondering what people think about having a always connected vehicle with cameras everywhere on/in it. I would prefer having no cameras because I enjoy driving and would only test out the self driving as a fun little thing every once in a while. It seems like a waste of money (albeit...
