  1. Is China Becoming a Long Term Problem?

    Sometimes I think our problems stem from the fact that we can’t help but look at situations, concepts through a filter that stops us from seeing things clearly. And it takes a while to struggle with and see something for what its truely worth. Case in point the Cybertruck. Some people will...
  2. Is China Becoming a Long Term Problem?

    Hey Artie, I could have sworn you were a Republican, then a couple of your posts had me reconsidering, as you were sounding like both a Democrat and a Republican. Then you last post leans more towards Democrat. So in conclusion, with all the sharp observations you’re making, I'm going to leave...
  3. Is China Becoming a Long Term Problem?

    He wasn't Air Evacuated back to Australia. The way he tells the story, he was abandoned by the insurance company and the Hospital he was taken to in the U.S. After being kicked out, he stayed in a motel overnight after leaving hospital while waiting for his regular consumer flight back to...
  4. What are the vertical lines on the inside of the Vault??

    While we're working on mysteries, how do we operate the tailgate ? There is no latch or handle on the inside or the outside ! The 3 buttons on the top surface of the rear of the sails are actually 2 buttons and recess where the roof racks are fixed into. The 2 button are : A/ The rectangle...
  5. Is China Becoming a Long Term Problem?

    Artie, you cover a bit of ground in your answer, and you clearly make some points I agree with. So, you do believe that lockdowns were necessary. But you think they have gone on for too long. You could be right. (We'll see what we think, if a 2nd wave hits, in the U.S. or elsewhere. Sth Korea...
  6. Is China Becoming a Long Term Problem?

    I can see that you do take issues with the politicians handling of Covid-19. My understanding is that yes the over 50's are much more likely to be severely impacted by Covid-19. But I don't believe much was known about it until at least 3mths of its known existence could be documented and the...
  7. Is China Becoming a Long Term Problem?

    Interesting Handy Artie, Especially as you have a medical background, can I ask, could there be a virus that is deadly enough to warrant a government issuing lockdown measures, or no never ? That is to say, its more contagious and more deadly than Covid-19 ?
  8. Is China Becoming a Long Term Problem?

    Hey Handie Artie, your're starting to look like a bit of an oracle to me ! Just 48 hrs after your post, Kaka with a capital S, looks like its about to get real with China ! Who knows what the world will look by the time Cybertruck's are rolling off the production line ! By then, maybe every one...
  9. Is China Becoming a Long Term Problem?

    Zero evidence of govt politics in Tesla battery choices/actions. (Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries are simply cheaper, just use more of them to get the Kwh required. But apparently they have better cycle life too.) While Tesla's business is more than likely impacted by the Virus, both in the...
  10. Tri motor Cybertruck better V2G *investment* value than dual?

    Interesting article, thanks Cybr on. All I can say is thank phuck for California ! Their leadership in reducing co2 emissions has been a shining light for the whole world to follow. I’d hate to think where the world would be without them. I think regulator policy goals translated into dollars...
  11. Tri motor Cybertruck better V2G *investment* value than dual?

    While V2G whole community’s have been formed to work this concept in some Scandinavian country’s I’ve seen. I'm with AJDelange on this, its a fantasy. V2G at the moment has a very marginal cash benefit to the consumer for a tradeoff in battery cycle accelerated degradation (devaluation $$)...
  12. Update: Cybertruck Will Keep Concept's Size, But Separate Smaller Cybertruck Likely!

    You seem a little agitated Newton. Certain facts seem to upset you, facts that somehow peculiarly detract from your enjoyment of the larger Cybertruck ! ( Just thinking out aloud, do you look for women a little on the large size, I think its fine if you do, but do you find yourself criticising...
  13. Update: Cybertruck Will Keep Concept's Size, But Separate Smaller Cybertruck Likely!

    He’s still leaving a little confusion. We need new stated dimensions. For both the large and smaller Cybertruck please Elon. Original stated width was 79.8” then he simultaneously went up and down in new width size !! Stated the new width size was to be 82”, which was smaller than the...
  14. Heated exoskeleton?

    The rate of heat loss or gain depends on . . . Q = M x C x (Temp final - Temp Initial) Can't compare exactly cos Tesla / Spacex haven't revealed details of their Stainless Steel recipe, but its reasonable to assume maybe 7% greater density for Stainless Steel than mild steel for a regular body...
  15. Heated exoskeleton?

    I did notice the glass in the video, and all that great light it baths the cabin in. I was hoping it was Electro chromatic glass. Cos yes, the heat in the cabin is also going to be a big problem that needs addressing. I hope your're right, but I can't help thinking that, that is a lot of mass...
  16. Heated exoskeleton?

    You guys got me thinking about the opposite problem. The removal of heat from the exoskeleton. Melbourne weather is fairly moderate, but it can get to 45 degrees Celsius (113 f) and the heatwaves of 4 or 5 consecutive days of 35 + deg Celsius (95 f) are happening more often. Also now the...
  17. 3mm thick 30X stainless steel body panels

    As the Tesla / Spacex recipe for their Stainless Steel is unknown, so is the tensile and Shear Strength unknown. Estimated Strength of Cybertruck panels are literally about 11 times stronger or more. Conventional car body panel thickness varies a little, generally from 0.6mm to 0.8mm (Volvo’s...
  18. Cybertruck Full Self Driving (FSD) Option Will Cost $1k More Beginning July 1

    A/ Yes B/ Yes C/ :ROFLMAO: Are you aware of the other 24 company's or so, that are racing along with Tesla to get to Lv 5 Autonomy ? Are you aware of the ones who have already achieved it ! Although its limited in where and how its available, (far from being applied commercially ubiquitously)...
  19. Cybertruck Full Self Driving (FSD) Option Will Cost $1k More Beginning July 1

    Well, Tesla and Elon make it explicitly clear that 1 day it is going to make the car drive itself. Level 5 Autonomy. Thats what it is, or more accurately what it will be. And he states it will be here this year (functionality achieved this year) ! And begin rolling out at least in 1...
