Vendor Project Emotiv3 - Track Car Build

Having mcbarnet007 blast past you in his street car down the front straight at Laguna Seca while you are in your fully caged V8 racecar certainly makes you a little envious. So last November I picked up a 2022 Model 3 Performance with the sole intent of turning it into a track weapon. This is a long...

Squeaky /creaky driver's seat issue identified

tl;dr Sharing for people with the same issue: M3 driver's seat squeak is due to misaligned/rubbing seat rails. Proper fix is properly align the rails, less ideal/maybe temporary fix is add grease.

I've had an annoying creaking noise in the driver side seat that seems to come and go in my 2022 M3LR...

My comments on 2022 Tesla Model X PLAID

I took delivery of an April build of a 2022 Model X PLAID 5 days ago, and I have a few observations I thought this community might like to see. I had a 2020 Model X LR before this.

Things I like:
  • The UI is noticeably faster and feels like a totally different piece of software than v11 was...

Tried a FSD subscription. It's not worth it...

I bit the bullet and tried the FSD one-month subscription option for a 1700 mile road trip this past weekend in my 2020 Model 3 Standard Plus. My opinion: not worth it.

Full Self Driving is just a terrible name for what is essentially Autopilot+. I'd imagine your commute would need to involve nothi...

Vendor Bring On The Dirt Busters!

Tesla Shields is a small company started by Jason and Sebastien with the idea of manufacturing door sill protectors and morphed into manufacturing car mats only for Tesla’s. It is surprising how Tesla has not paid attention to their floor mats which is an important detail to most Tesla owners. The...

Last weekend I did this trip in an EV for the first time, I thought I’d share some observations for those who have concerns about taking their first roadtrip in a Model 3 Long Range. In s...

Tesla Has Redesigned Model 3 Air Filter Cover to Make Replacement Easier

I just did my first air filter change in my Model 3. I had watched several videos about how hard it was to unscrew the air filter cover, so I was prepared for a fight. But my September 2021 Model 3 SR+ has a redesigned air filter cover, with the screw at the bottom of the cover and the tab at the to...

Dead Polestar 2 at Enterprise Rent-A-Car

Was dropping off my ICE rental car last evening when I spotted a Polestar 2 sitting outside of an Enterprise Rent-A-Car office (north of Pittsburgh). Initially, I was really excited to see one in the wild, and I took a couple of pictures. But then I took a closer look. As shown in one of the phot...

The success of FSD and my increase for trust in Tesla

I paid 10 grand and now my already great Model Y now drives itself through my town. It slows down for speed bumps, handles four ways on its own, swerves around bikers and parked cars who's doors are open. It handles the 5 and the 405 quite well too!

Obviously it's not perfect and can do the wrong t...

1,500 Miles and another song on the all night radio :)

Yeah.. I'm borrowing part of Kathy's song.. but it fits.

I just completed a 1,500 miles.. cost in fuel was 106 USD. with about 80 miles for free.

I took my Standard Plus to AZ and back.. short legs and all. My "range" is 220 miles.. reality is if I top to 100%, I get about 216. 80% is about 190 ...
