    Tesla ignoring older cars!

    Nico - How did you get LTE, and for life? My MS P85 was ordered in Jan '14 and delivered end of Feb '14. Have 3G which is struggling. Should I be asking for an upgrade?

    Supercharger - Rockaway NJ

    Possibly a dislike that you had to cancel, but just in case i threw a like in there to offset cause i think its great what you are doing! I when date/time decided I will try to make it.

    Supercharger - Rockaway NJ

    A couple years ago I was on the Grand Opening invite list for the Norfolk, VA supercharger. Day before the event got an email saying event was cancelled due to a construction incident. Tragically an electrician, testing or whatever - no one knows, somehow got electrocuted. Really sad. But point...

    Finding "hidden" Supercharger location

    A bit of advice to the newbies - if you think its going to be close in terms of making it to a charger - SLOW DOWN! The range is calculated at highway speeds so at 45-50 you have greater range than shown and less wind resistance. On the S, possibly same on the 3, there is a range setting which...

    Just left the Dedham MA SC - People were loosing their *[email protected]

    Ahh - saying goodbye to the good old days...when you left a card with your cell number on the dash when charging in case you were done and not back from wherever and someone needed to charge. Or you nodded, waved or flashed the hi-beams at another S. Or always having a convo with the other...

    Congratulations for joining the club - and for your Joie de vivre. May we all be like you at 83!! Ignore the nit-picking - its a totally cool vehicle. Just make sure you get your acceleration kick every once in a while!!

    Driving on the sand? Ocean Shores

    Really dude???? And 21" wheels with low-profile tires?? Swan Beach - 4 x 4 territory on the very north end of the Outer Banks in North Carolina. BTW - Signs all over saying don't try this even with AWD and then lower tire pressure to 20lbs. That was one expensive tow - the local tow operators...

    No. It's coordination.

    Hill Control Lies! Rolled back and hit a car :(

    When I got my MS in early '14, I found out quickly that the car rolled backwards when stopped at a light on a hill. Having learned to drive on a manual transmission and for many years afterwards, I knew how to feed the clutch with left foot and accelerate with minimal rollback and not relying...

    Supercharger - Norfolk, VA

    Make it 3. No issues charging here, albeit not at 2:00AM like I've charged elsewhere. The SC has good visibility and the retail/food offerings are decent.

    Be honest: is SCing on a long trip annoying?

    I have been making a 425 mi run from northern NJ to the Outer Banks in NC about every other month. Depending upon weather (heat uses a lot more power than A/C) and speed, I can usually make only one SC stop. That's 4 hrs on each side of the charge stop. Terrain can matter as well - it's pretty...

    Rusting of the rear lift gate attachment points

    I live in Jersey too and the road departments seem to spread salt at the hint of a snow dusting. Looks like you might have some accumulations of salt. Make sure you wash and wipe down under the hood and rear hatch frequently in winter.

    What do you do for work? Just passing time waiting for updates from Tesla :)

    Hey LVL (laminated veneer lumber) is great stuff. Just discovered what it was after a contractor on a Habitat for Humanity project I'm working on substituted LSL (laminated strand lumber) for LVL. Building inspector not happy and architect had to scramble with calcs but it all worked out...

    UMC meets snow blower!

    Electrical tape is vinyl and gets brittle when cold, not meant for exterior applications. . A much better option is this stuff. It self-bonds into a flexible waterproof seal. Also called lineman's tape. Scotch® Linerless Rubber Splicing Tape 130C [*=center]Print [*=center]Share...
