I actually think it looks pretty friggin tight.

FWIW, lots of people misunderstand panel gaps. It's not wether or not there IS a gap, but rather if the gap is constant on both sides of the panel.

In this case, while there is a gap, it is consistent on both sides of the panel.

The only difference in RC vs Beta builds is the panel gaps and panel quality is substantially better than we have previously seen.
The poster showed pix on both sides of the vehicle and they are notably different even seen from a phone. Am I missing something here?

look again - they clip onto the spokes
But they don’t have to design it that way. Here is another way to do it:

That said, I have no idea which way the on on CT is designed.

that design works on inset rims, but not flush rims

far as I know, all of teslas flush-spoked rims with Aeros clip to the spokes

and it’s consistent with this Fremont unit still having this one aero out of wack. after a few months, multiple washes for VIPs, and at least one removal/reattachment (for Lithium refinery), I just can’t see someone not twisting the aero cap if that’s all the effort it took.

However I *can* see them not remounting the tire to the rim. Not because they couldn’t, but for the effort.

I always lower my windows the same amount on both sides, sometimes front and back matched, too.

It just feels right.

I never have all my windows at the same height. The dog’s window is lowered much more than the others and they are lowered enough to keep a vacuum from happening.

The license plate says 'MANUFACTURER' under TEXAS, but I'd like to see a TEXAS TRUCK license plate :) :

I've never seen the building at ground level and that close before. It is HUGE. The video is great too :)

I don't think the tail gait will open and extend to a ramp, like was shown during the introduction, with that tail light across the top.

If it is in reference to Sandman saying “ I guess both front windows being at the same level threw me off.“, both front windows appear stopped at the same position, not all the way down, by the driver for some reason.

You think the driver would have just hit ‘express down‘ on the window switches and been done with it but to each their own, lol.

I just assumed this was an intentional Easter egg that you can make out the Cybertruck wedge shape in the window shape. They have small little nods to the wedge everywhere.
