That sure taught you some good lessons, lol.
My bro-in-law came from Illinois before moving to Bay Area in CA. Had a few 360 spins. :eek:
Would back out in any invites and won't cross the I80 over Donner in winter.
No you did not misunderstood!
And I'm really not sure of the regs but someone who live in South Lake Tahoe said that regs about chains is based on the severity of snow, ice and road conditions.
There were two occasions with very heavy snow in Truckee/Donner Summit where everyone was stopped...
Any better minds get a crack on energy usage between Kettleman City (253' elevation) to Grapevine/Frazier Park (4,136') on a distance of about 107 miles?
My CT will be humping the 7,200' Donner Summit in all seasons pulling an RV or carrying a truck camper, hence, my interest on the subject.
Please don't rain on my parade. I'm on cloud 9 and not just from Denver Rocky Mountain High Premium. :p
Actually what I'm really hyper excited is the very real 500-mile range on full load.
I'll now be watching it's performance in freezing weather and uphill like the brutal Donner Summit...
Very excited here!
And yes, charging cable for CT is same as Semi and therefore, access, baby access.
Then the true range is 500, fully loaded.
Their probing grounds was the brutal Sparks to Donner Summit. Real life range test was Bay Area to San Diego.
I just wish they did it on that same...
That's why I'm optimistic that California will be able to achieve their energy independence goals.
Parking spaces in schools and public buildings now have solar panel roofs. A big win for their employees and workers as it's used to be exposed to the elements.
New homes, not sure if this is...
Anyone member of this forum invited?
If there is, it's his obligations to make a full report.
And a deep down analysis on the breakthrough technology.
If it's something he/she doesn't understand, just not to fake it please. We have enough experts here (unless they themselves are faking --...
That's why truckers, so am I, are excited when Tesla floated the idea of battery exchange in ten minutes flat. It is an immediate solution to range issue with this minimal interruption in this business where revenue is generated only when the tires are rolling.
Read about that too and am encourage that there are many research being made in the use of new materials all to achieve higher energy density, reduce weight, improve range and longer storage/less energy leak.
Then quit trying. There is no shame in keeping quiet for not knowing. :oops:
Truckers in the industry actually suggested 700-mile range as their mandated rest is after driving of 10 hours that would have them achieve at least 650 miles on the 65-per hour average (and in California, the 55 to...
Thanks for the new excuse.
When did Elon appointed you to be Semi apologist? :rolleyes: ;)
Your next assignment is to correct Musk's pronouncement that "Semi would be the future of trucking..." err, to fit your own excuse: (quote GlockandRoll verbatim: "The cybertruck is a non-commercial...
I for one wished the Cybertruck, and the Semi, would have 1,000 mile range.
But Gates, the not-so-swell-headed genius, is correct. There is a conundrum in weight and range for battery operated vehicles. Meaning at the this batteries has reached peak energy density, the only way to add range...
Actually it would have been before that but there is no reservation page on the Tesla website yet until Elon said "go". And then it crashed on just a few seconds. I think I was only able to access it 10 minutes after it resumption of operations after it crashed. ;)
My reservation was made on the night of the launch (even after the window glass broke, lol).
The estimate is I'm number 79 on the queue and I'm getting the priority dual trim.
I won't ever wish or pray this just to get my Cybertruck on the first 30 unit batch.
But then, if Darwin so wishes...
I trade, a few times within the same day, so I've earned the money I need for my purchase of Cybertruck.
However, it's just leverage telling them that I would pay cash if they can't give me a satisfactory APR to a finance and to express my willingness too to a bigger down payment to...
