    Australia Getting Snubbed?

    Hey, I know what it's like to be snubbed vehiclely. Toyota never brought the BJ4x diesel series to the US officially AND we never got the 70 series. Still hurts, man.

    Cybertruck to 'Kick Butt' at Baja ?

    Not Baja, but Moab. Not CT, but Rivian. Shows the need for *much* beefier suspension due to "instant torque" power over rocks. (btw trail mater is a great channel to follow for back country vehicle situations)

    Cybertruck to 'Kick Butt' at Baja ?

    Baja is a great, tough test track for any style of vehicle. Takes a lot of confidence, real "money where your mouth is" place. But Lordstown didn't do so well there, if you recall.

    Tesla's head of AI / Autopilot is leaving after 5 years

    What if...... He's leaving to start an educational structure to facilitate the future of AI development and advancement. One of the gripes I've seen from Elon Musk is the lack of topical education for the coming (rapid) shift in technology. AK would be a prime part of the beginning of...

    You tube reviewers wtf

    Eschew Obfuscation. Actually Kyle from Out of Spec showed some suboptimal information for Rivian charging. It looked like the opposite of fun.

    Austin Model Y ("Longhorn" edition?) spotted in California, Central Coast area

    Danny Duncan did this already in 2019. It's been done before. It's a trope.

    Where do you want to go?

    How's the Serenity? When I was in Australia a few years back (Tasmania, Victoria, and ACT), I brought back the DVD from the Flying Doctors called Back of Beyond. Holy Moley, what a track and what a tough breed of people to live and work on it. Gotta admit, I've been wondering how a CT could...

    New sighting! Cybertruck + Semi at Michigan International Speedway [June 17, 2022] -- No Wiper on CT

    Tiktok, bloody Tiktok, bloody vertical blip-vert videos. Bloody Tiktok ruins everything. Hundreds of people around the vehicles have their phones out, all holding vertical.

    Ford going 100% online for EV sales

    Also, won't this force states that prohibit direct sales to change the archaic, cronyism dealership laws that oppress Tesla?

    Ford going 100% online for EV sales

    "First they will ignore you, then they will criticize you, then they will try to copy you, then you will win". (bastardized quote of a bastardized quote) Thanks for proving it Ford. GM, VW you're up, take your swing.

    Release the Kraken - Rivian R1S seen in the Wild

    All I can hope is they will exponentially improve the range and charging experience over the R1T. Kyle from Out of Spec had an educational drive in an R1T from Phx to Ft. Collins. I can't imagine the SUV demographic would be happy with some of the struggles and time waiting as it is now...

    If Quad Motor Cybertruck is $89,900, are you still in?

    I just re-read the Cybertruck pre-order agreement and this wording is included: No Resellers; Discontinuation; Cancellation. Tesla and its affiliates sell cars directly to end-consumers, and we may unilaterally cancel any order that we believe has been made with a view toward resale of the...

    If Quad Motor Cybertruck is $89,900, are you still in?

    I was anticipating a +$90K USD cost because I selected a Tri, and want to buy the Cyberquad as the "option" mentioned during the launch. I also have ticked the FSD box (early cost). If I can still get the Tri + FSD + CQ for the similar cost as a CT Quad, I'm sticking with my original plan at...

    SpaceX satellites falling out of orbit after solar storm

    One of my customers, and one of the most impressive people I've ever met in real life was responsible for forecasting solar events in the early days of space flight. His stories were nothing less than spectacular. He also was responsible for the Old Farmer's Almanac weather forecasts. I...
