    All Parking Lots with more than 8 spots Should Have Solar Canopies and EV Chargers

    Yes it does matter because otherwise you load up the power grid with even more load. With solar onsite at work you don't need to upgrade the grid or use it at all, meaning more grid is available for other loads and more renewables at no extra cost.

    PSA: Cybertruck body shell exoskeleton is not one contiguous piece of bent steel

    Thanks for the mention. Where was I trolling though? Please name bridge and crime? Thx.

    PSA: Cybertruck body shell exoskeleton is not one contiguous piece of bent steel

    I am, you aren't. Now you are argueing that a unibody is a exoskeleton as well, so CT isn't as "special" as you thought after all, all just to make your point to keep calling things "exoskeleton". Flip flopping. But that's ok, I now know where to go to get some random words generated. ;) You...

    PSA: Cybertruck body shell exoskeleton is not one contiguous piece of bent steel

    I can agree that sometimes it's unnecessary to define things as an analogy to get a point accross, but I draw the line when some people name things a certain way and then proceed to give those things they have mislabelled, properties they absolutely do not have. Either call it what it is or...

    PSA: Cybertruck body shell exoskeleton is not one contiguous piece of bent steel

    I don't have a problem with the performance of the physical structure only with the false nomenclature. What is inside can't be outside, so any term with "exo" can only be outside, and "skeleton" can't be inside of it if it's an exoskeleton. Structurally the cabin is a space frame, the casts...

    PSA: Cybertruck body shell exoskeleton is not one contiguous piece of bent steel

    Sure. Sure sure, anything you say. So lets try it your way then: 1) is the cabin frame inside or outside the skin covering? 2) are the front and rear casts inside the skin covering? 3) is the structural pack inside of the skin? What loads do you think are left for the skin or "exoskeleton"...

    Cybertruck max AC charge rate

    Sorry, VSD/VFD is Variable Speed/Frequency Drive for controlling motor rpm. That way the car can control the throttle of the trolling motor used to propel the CT when in the water. EM had a tweet about attaching a motor to the hitch, so I'm hoping they can add the VSD to the 120/240V bed...

    Cybertruck max AC charge rate

    I suspect the CT will have a bidirectional charger/power inverter to run the power outlets. If so I'd like to see around 15-20kW 1/3phase and a 5kW MPPT solar input plug. "If" CT comes with a 3phase outlet, I also hope it includes VSD functionality to drive a trolling motor on the tow hitch for...

    PSA: Cybertruck body shell exoskeleton is not one contiguous piece of bent steel

    No a truss is not an exoskeleton, it's a truss, and a space frame a space frame (which is a 3D trusss btw), and the CT cabin shape is the same as most other cars as it forms a truss section on each side, but you don't see anyone calling a F150 cab a exoskeleton do you? But my statement goes...

    PSA: Cybertruck body shell exoskeleton is not one contiguous piece of bent steel

    Dude you can't just say stuff as if it was so without any evidence, let alone provide evidence directly contrary to your own statements to make your point. Make up your mind which way you want it first. So is an exoskeleton by definition "covered" or not? Explain. BTW Those car images you...

    All Parking Lots with more than 8 spots Should Have Solar Canopies and EV Chargers

    What frustrates me the most is where relevant non-political comments are wiped together with all the political rubbish.

    Not "everything", that's unreasonable and silly, I'm sure you can see that. Air, water, earth and fire are still the elements you know. ;);)

    PSA: Cybertruck body shell exoskeleton is not one contiguous piece of bent steel

    On impact the door skins are pushed into and interface with the cabin door frames and transfer loads to the rollcage, even without the door hinges or lock. So their structural outside skin does help, but only in a collision where the vehicle is deformed. But you are right that in their usual...

    Cybertruck max AC charge rate

    :cool: Why so many batteries? If I were to charge from offgrid solar I would want to do it straight from the panels via a inverter at a high enough rate to finish the cycle in daylight hours, with as little extra battery storage as possible. And then use the EV battery for overnight power use...

    Is there a household grade DC to DC charger that works with Tesla?

    I don't think you understand what sarcasm is. Don't they have that in the USA anymore? ;) I got boiled for bringing up what Ogre and the OP are suggesting. Now they argue for it. I'm not sure why you are responding twice to he same post, slow day at the office? So do you know what...

    Sorry I'm too lazy and busy at this time of the year to rehash this again, but if you want to know my opinion on what the exoskeleton is, have a read of this: https://www.cybertruckownersclub.com/forum/threads/understanding-the-exoskeleton-body-is-there-a-frame-underneath.5674/post-118846...

    PSA: Cybertruck body shell exoskeleton is not one contiguous piece of bent steel

    Nice! 😆 I remember once I was "critically acclaimed" for pointing this out a few months back. Exoskeleton is more of a marketing term than an actual structure that meets the definition of "exoskeleton".
