  1. Rolling Back the Rolling Stop but Cruising with Cruise Control

    You know Seth Weintraub over at Electrek made a really good point last Friday on their podcast about rolling back the rolling stop. He pointed out that if lawmakers are so concerned about the rolling stop at 2 mph breaking the law, why are they not holding the same standard for things like a...
  2. Self Propelled Travel Trailer by Airstream

    So Electrek just posted an article about Airstream working on a trailer that will have its own battery and propulsion solution so as to not create drag on the tow vehicle. For some reason it’s not letting me post the link. I will put in comments. This is yet another reason to stop worrying so...
  3. Will The CT Get Upgraded Motors?

    I have been thinking lately about the size of this truck and struggling to see how a single motor could even be feasible. Obviously the general solution is to add motors for more performance and thus the dual and tri motors exist. But has anyone heard/read if they plan to use a different motor...
  4. 24’ Cable on Wall Connector!

    So it looks like Tesla updated the Wall Connector recently from 18’ to 24’. This is a great improvement IMO. I put a spot to plug in a charger on the outside of my house near my driveway and an 18’ cable likely wasn’t going to reach if I pull in forward. But 24’ probably will! I really don’t...
  5. Hypothetical off-road range decrease?

    So I don’t do much off-roading as it is but the Cybertruck will open up that opportunity to me hopefully. I am guessing any moderate off-roading, let’s say like a level 3 where 4 wheel drive is required much of the time, will greatly decrease range. I would think an off-road vehicle that gets 15...
  6. How to handle the door handles?

    I myself am fairly torn on this one. Having handles seems like a safety necessity but it’s new to me to not have handles and it may be better. So I created a poll to put some closure in this.
  7. Rich Rebuilds for $700 in lieu of Teslas quoted $16000

    It seems like this story is all over the news this last week. A guy broke a coolant adapter coming out of the battery on a model 3 and a Telsa vendor quoted to replace the whole battery because the adapter wasn't replaceable per Tesla. So the guy took it to Rich Rebuilds and they basically cut...
  8. Actual finish of stainless steel exoskeleton?

    Does anyone know (or have an educated guess) what the finish of the stainless exoskeleton 30X cold rolled steel will be? Any time I have purchase cold rolled stainless there are always slight imperfections in the steel and it has a dull finish. Tesla probably gets better quality material than I...
  9. Found a great EV power/charging solution

    So as many of you have done, I was researching the best solution for EV charging. Obviously the Tesla Wall Connector is the best option for a Tesla. Its interior/exterior rated and it can transfer a lot of power. But having not bought the EV yet, I was thinking well what if I want more options...
  10. Full glass roof

    Not having ever owned a car with a full glass roof, what’s that like? Does your head get hot? Do feature in the car get hotter due to sun exposure? Anyone know the coatings Tesla typically uses on their roof glass. Low E, Solar ban etc.?
  11. Making Cybertruck cheaper

    So I work in an industry that is heavily hit by the current increases commodity prices. Most people know it’s crazy right now and it’s not just limber prices. Steel, copper, resins, glass, insulation etc., it’s all significantly increased in cost. The cause of which will be for future economics...
