  1. New Battery Range & Pack Architecture [Announced at Battery Day]

    With the newly designed battery I suspect CT Dual motor may have a new range of 350 -375 miles. It will accomplish this on less cells that are more energy dense. Also fewer cell result in less weight which make CT a light lighter vehicle. The new battery design will help make CT stronger in it's...
  2. Let's be honest - who disliked and/or was repulsed by the Cybertruck when they first saw it?

    Trucks have been around since 1917, I have had trucks for over 40 years of my life, it's how I grew up not saying it was ugly just not what I expected but I can see the beauty in it now. I am sure someone is going ask me "what is it"?
  3. Let's be honest - who disliked and/or was repulsed by the Cybertruck when they first saw it?

    Cybertruck had such a huge hype in the predays, then many conception drawings were surfacing. With many I thought had awesome ideas, I was sure Elon's design team would be even better. On reveal day when Cybertruck drove onto the stage I thought it was part of the show still in progress it was...
  4. Tesla’s 12V batteries set to receive major improvements through software update

    I think you are right about the charging program when the inverter tops of the 12v battery or is it load based. Tesla vehicles I imagine have more of a parasitic load then a Ice vehicle. I went to a friends home to help him with his wife's car when parked over the weekend it would not start on...
  5. Cybertruck to use 48V instead of 12V?

    12V systems are very reliable and most of the motors or operating solenoids are not the problem but changing these components to work on higher would require engineering and additional cost to operate on higher voltages. I worked on transportation that operated on 12/24/36V systems. Both...
  6. Tesla’s 12V batteries set to receive major improvements through software update

    The 12V battery seems to be in my experience has been built in such a way that life is shorter, but this may not be the case all the time. I worked for a Transportation Agency for 26 years that had a fleet of almost was at 500 buses. Typical a group 31 battery was used which most heavy duty...
  7. Cybertruck Replica by Bosnian Maker is Best Lookalike Yet

    At this point Ford is probably thinking "what the hell ,we can't win" Ford uses their Electric F 150 to pull a million pounds worth of rail road cars and the public still says it's not your tech but Rivians. Ford is in for a small beating for not being sincere with their EV program. Still not...
  8. Can a CT be realistically kept outside?

    You are quite right, Sounds like you may have experience in this area. I could not respond to the chicken wire recommendation. For me clearing my property of wood piles and other home like ideals for pack-rats ( not big like a regular rat ) is my best solution beside using traps and baits. I...
  9. Electric-hydrogen truck startup Nikola is an 'intricate fraud,' report proclaims

    I think Nikola has not told the truth about the companies technology but, according to GM's CEO Mary Barra a "very capable team has vetted Nikola with appropriate diligence" I read this on GM news, I wonder if GM stands to gain a iconic brand name in the fallout?
  10. Hey Dog Lovers, Campers, Contractors, and DIY folks! How do we petition the inventor of "Dog-Mode", to give Cyber a pass thru rear window option?

    It sounds like a CyberVan is needed for all our fury friends. I don't really know about the exoskeleton body can be changed in the back of cabin to allow a pass through but I know I could use it, What do you say Elon?
  11. Need Opinion

    I am not a fancially person so advice on that subject I refrain but, on cars I will say this don't purchase vehicle you don't plan on keeping even if it's a Tesla. Very hard to recoup monies on used cars, better to buy a low cost alternative until your desired vehicle comes into the picture. I...
  12. Latest Info on Tesla's Million-Mile Battery Which May Power the Cybertruck

    Some very interesting reading on this subject, many decades ago can't remember exactly when but, I seen a article on GM's future transportation ideas. It showed a type of skateboard containing batteries and motors. The idea was that you could purchase a vehicle and when your needs changed you...
  13. CYBERTRUCK AWG Technology.

    Any vehicle with A/C system will produce water in the evaporator coil, usually drains out somewhere beneath the car and not drinking quality but could be filtered so you could. In large business with hvac systems, legionnaires disease can form in hvac system if not cleaned periodically. My old...
  14. Upgraded order from dual to tri motor!

    I ordered a dual motor from the start as time was passing I started to think about the places I travel and locations of chargers. I live in the Montana and the closes supercharger is about 120 miles away. I am not concerned for the times I need to travel to a city to buy things I can't in my...
  15. Can a CT be realistically kept outside?

    I haven't the privilege of a close-up viewing of CT but with the Idea that CT truck may float, it certainly raise the security bar. Yes CT no engine bay....I have repaired so many rodent problems it is a definite concern for me. It would surprise folks to find out what a rodent can get into...
  16. Can a CT be realistically kept outside?

    I live in Montana and planned on parking it outside mostly. I have a good sized shop but opening the 12 ft doors are a pain in the arse. The only serious problem we have here is the pack-rats, if you leave a vehicle outside for a few days the engine hood needs to be propped up to prevent...
  17. cyber scooter

    It's a shame that Elon feels the motorcycles are dangerous and in the hands of a inexperienced rider there certainly is a higher risk of a accident. Also many riders with over 200k miles and more having safely transversed the nation. There are other companies filling in the void for electric...
  18. Nikola partners with GM

    GM made a great deal for itself, I am not convinced this badger truck from Nikola will have sales to sustain the model. 60k for a BEV that has a 300 mile range, when a CT dual motor is 49.9k for the same range. I like the premise of the company, clean energy weather its BEV or hydrogen hybrid.
  19. What if your place in line cost $1000.00?

    I think Elon had no idea of the success the CT would drum up. People who gave the 100 dollars knew it was a low cost to get in line. Some are thinking for 100 bucks what the hell I might like it but I am sure many of us can see how this fits our needs. I know when CT rolls out for delivery...
