    Tesla Using Mobile Service Fleet to Test Cybertruck Steel Before Launch

    I used to go off roading when I lived in Arizona. We’d call those scratches “desert pinstripe”. 😬

    Motor Mouth: Tesla's New Cybertruck is - Well, We Don't Even Know

    It amazes me all the complaining that goes on for a vehicle that isnt even in production yet, and won’t be for a while. The deposit is fully refundable, and relatively insignificant. Speculate like crazy, but the whining and demanding gets tiresome pretty fast.

    Cybertruck Vs. New Bronco

    So why can’t you strap some extra cans of electricity to your CT? I think thats a great idea. Hopefully someone will run with that as an aftermarket option. Wont be any more hazardous than a couple of cans of gasoline. 🤠 Or how about some nice solar panels to lay out on the ground? Or both...

    Cybertruck Vs. New Bronco

    The Bronco is the perfect vehicle to get while waiting for your Cybertruck. Especially if they make a hybrid model. Im someting like 250k in line for a CT, so I dont expect to get mine for a few years. A Bronco in the garage would tide me over nicely. 🤠

    Cybertruck pics & videos from the Petersen Automotive Museum [Dates Extended Until July 5]

    I always had great performance on and off-road with these BigO ATs on my 4Runner... https://www.bigotires.com/tires/line/big-o/big-foot-at-nt/prod4791805 Had the Bridgestone Revo ATs also, but the performance of those drops off dramatically as they wear.

    Cybertruck pics & videos from the Petersen Automotive Museum [Dates Extended Until July 5]

    Cool pics. Thanks. Cameras on fender flares seems like a bad idea as they will be prone to damage if you do any off-roading at all. But I guess it's more of a pain to punch out the metal to put a camera in, and would mess up the smooth line of the body.

    Cybertruck pics & videos from the Petersen Automotive Museum [Dates Extended Until July 5]

    The buttons don't really even need to depress, as they may be touch sensitive, like a phone screen. So no where for water or debris to even get in. I think there was a demo video posted a month or so ago of the retraction of the bed cover that might provide a close up of the button action.

    Dual rear cameras spotted on Cybertruck

    Maybe it's just a plain old back up camera. Tho stereo vision would help it to self park.

    What is your biggest Cybertruck question you'd like answered by Tesla before committing to purchase?

    Not really. Crumple zones are about absorbing energy over time. Short impulses of high energy, are deadly, and an airbag alone would only cushion you from impacting the steering wheel or windshield, but the deceleration would be extreme. You’ll end up shearing your aorta or other major...

    What is your biggest Cybertruck question you'd like answered by Tesla before committing to purchase?

    My question would be how does CT absorb energy in a frontal or other crash, if the whole frame is stainless steel. A rigid body is something that contributes to occupant injury in a crash because energy is transferred more directly to occupants instead of being absorbed by the crumple zones of...

    Full Length Roof-Bed Cargo Rack Concept

    I had the same thoughts. Though bumper like that is good for mounting other hardware, like a winch. Though it might be a nice option to have it behind the body, which would also preserve the aerodynamics.

    Or both! Like Ford has their own aftermarket performance brand. Dodge too, and others I'm sure.

    Hydrogen “fool sells” (Nikola Badger)

    Great points @ajdelange. Thanks. Hydrogen will never be as efficient as electricity for most applications because you are adding steps in there that go from the source to moving the vehicle. And if the electrolysis process were 100% efficient then the total efficiency for hydrogen would be...

    Hydrogen “fool sells” (Nikola Badger)

    There was a recent thread that mentioned the Badger truck by Nikola. It will supposedly be a hybrid of sorts, running on hydrogen fuel cells and batteries. Elon Musk thinks hydrogen is a dumb idea. From an Inverse.com article... “Elon Musk has criticizised a competitor's idea (Hyundai) to...

    Nikola Badger pickup

    10 - 20 years? How much better will current EVs be by then? Also that's a lot of steps you outline for hydrogen to be a viable fuel. And hydrogen has been around for a while, yet it hasn't taken hold, probably for good reasons. Electricity for EVs is already here and growing fast. Also...
