And what did you learn?
nothing, I guess it is time to rescruitinize the issue. If nothing else it makes for something to do while watching football. I was hoping a shipping expert would jump all over it.

That's the point of having quad motors - direct control of torque instead of needing to use the brakes and slack in a differential.

Disappointed, I was hoping Elon would apply the " the best part is no part" philosophy here, to save weight
So how would that work?
I assume he means no standard brakes if they used regenerative brakes that could absorb ALL kinetic energy quickly and always come to a short distance stop. I could be wrong though.

Am I right in assuming this means no regenerative braking? Or are these supplementary/complimentary to regen?
All Teslas have regenerative braking, including the Cybertruck. They need friction brakes as well.

Not a prob. Ye be charging as you roll to a stop, and you can adjust how much charging/braking you do. Win/win for the win!

Diameter of rear brake disc is underwhelming. I was expecting dinner plates.....they give you flying bread roll 'saucers'
scale here is deceptive - that disc + caliper fills the 20” rims with little room to spare

at the same time, Tesla isn’t exactly known for its braking abilities matching its acceleration abilities

While they sort of can do that now; the potential energy from the motors can exceed the battery's ability to absorb it. Also, friction brakes are still really handy when you're parked on a hill. (And required by law.)

Silly me, I was expecting "purdy " red Brembo's for Christmas.
Tesla has tried to pull the wool over buyers eyes with red ones not long ago.

EVs have, as is pointed out above, regen that makes large brakes less required. You only heat these up in emergency maneuvers. -Crissa
There are many times when large brakes are needed. Low regen when SOC is very high and doing emergency stops or if you live at the top of a mount (various issues have come up in this example). Also doing any multiple sets of track runs with such a heavy vehicle.

So, only one of those is where you need large brakes, and it's not on regular roads.

I don't think there is any excuse for modest brakes on a very heavy vehicle.

Lot of people drive at 100% when they start out on a road/camping trip. When I did this a couple days ago with a loaded UHaul trailer I didn't have any regen initially. If you need to emergency brake at highway speed you want the best stopping power you can.

There are also a lot of trailers that don't have brakes. I pulled one a couple days ago in my X.
My kid also has a trailer that doesn't have it's own brakes.

You only need large brakes after the brakes heat up and they start slipping. You don't need them before that.
