    Tesla Range Question

    I'm curious what you mean by gross. When I look at that chart I see the 2010 Roadster range being extremely gross. Also I find it interesting that not one vehicle on those charts, was estimated of being capable of accomplishing the rated range at 70mph. So AJ, do you feel like those numbers...

    I am concerned the Single Motor CT will never happen.

    I reserved the single the night of the reveal. I live in So. Cal and don't anticipate needing AWD also. The reason I changed to Dual was RANGE, the reason I didn't change to Tri was COST. After reading info on this forum and doing some virtual trips with: 250...

    Cybertruck would be great for Drive-In Concerts

    Friday evening in Ventura California we took my wife's Seinna to the Sublime drive-in concert. The whole time I was thinking the Cybertruck would be AWESOME!!!! Here's a video with Sublime performing "What I Got".

    Full Length Roof-Bed Cargo Rack Concept

    Hahaha, I had to go back to post #30 to refresh my Oldtimers memory. You are correct!!!

    Full Length Roof-Bed Cargo Rack Concept

    I agree, I was only thinking of the obtuse angle being scored and bent. That's a really nice offer to send me a piece. However, I really don't see myself actually building anything. It's just me playing with ideas of what COULD be done. I saw those other drawings with black, round, steel tubing...

    Full Length Roof-Bed Cargo Rack Concept

    That would be awesome. The 2 short sides should be about 1 11/16". That's some hard stuff to cut though. I would think 3mm would help with the strength of the vertical supports of the rack. Imagine throwing lumber on it. This rack would possibly have to support a tent with people in it also...

    Full Length Roof-Bed Cargo Rack Concept

    How did that structure hold up when the winds come up? I would think it could get pretty wild with wind over 20mph. I've actually flown a dome tent as a kite before. Of course the wind was gusting to 50.

    Un-killable? Will a 'Tesla Killer' be coming for the Cybertruck? (Video)

    If that's what the general population says, they're way off. When you look at Rivian's Youtube video advertising, it looks like they are targeting Porsche, Range Rover, and Tesla ModelX owners. High end SUV adventure seeking people that want to be environmentally minded. I really can't imagine...

    CT Body Manufacturing Process

    Let me just start of with: Where there's a will there's a way! Tesla has already custom built at least the one shown at The Peterson Museum. They will build it with several different patterns, that will be welded into one unibody. That could have had some influence on the announcement of 304L...

    Cybertruck reservation order number -- how to tell your place in line

    I see you live in Denver. Have you seen the thread about The Cybertruck being virtually Hail proof?

    Will the CT come with MCU3

    LOL, I guess you are referring to the boat in my profile photo. That's NOT my boat. It's actually Stars & Stripes, one of Dennis Connor's America's Cup boats.

    VIDEO - Tesla Cybertruck TeraFactory Site Construction Is Well Underway

    Land restoration does sound accurate when you look at Google maps historically of that area. It looks like when they built the toll road, there was a tremendous amount of excavation and movement of dirt to elevate the roadbed. That would explain how come there are so many ditches filled with...

    2024 total eclipse @giga Austin?

    Greg Hayden, you're so right. The best way to describe what it's like to be outside of the shadow/ path of totality, would be like the video I posted. At the end of the video when it's daylight, is what it would be like at the Austin Tesla facility just 4 miles away. You would not be in darkness...

    2024 total eclipse @giga Austin?

    So did you notice with the map, you can zoom in to your house and click/tap on a point in the map and it will tell you what time the eclipse will begin and end at that location. It is perfect for planning. I was in Eastern Oregon for the 2017 Eclipse and it was fantastic. My mom lives in...

    2024 total eclipse @giga Austin?

    Close but no cigar. I'm an eclipse chaser too. Here's a really cool interactive map. The land for Tesla Texas is on both sides of the toll road marked 45 & 130. On the north side of the Colorado River. It's really close but just outside of the shadow of total eclipse. If you're not inside the...
