    V3 Supercharger power systems architecture

    I’ve been a fly on the wall for this conversation and have learned a lot! Thanks for sharing items about the supercharger design. My main takeaways are that: The total power output increase through charger generations has been a factor of 1.4 (50 to 90kw). The bus sharing through a site instead...

    Supercharger - Chehalis, WA

    I think they prioritize builds based on routes traveled and the corresponding perceived needs. We have i5 routes covered without too much weekend waiting, and the more rural areas are so rural that a dedicated supercharger there won’t get full use even on weekends. I think they currently...

    Tesla to increase cost of FSD beta software beyond its $12,000 price tag

    The only way I see the price making sense is if they expect to retrofit existing cars with new hardware to achieve the goal. At that point, paying for “FSD” is really a prepayment for an upgrade to the sensor suite. If they don’t upgrade the hardware, then (as one who has sat behind my fsd...

    When do FSD Beta snapshots get uploaded?

    I get a similar 1.5 to 2.0 gb upload for every snapshot, with a maximum total upload of around 8-10 gb.

    False FSD Strikes?

    So that we all better understand the conditions: Are you wearing sunglasses or a hat? Is this in a car with a passenger facing camera? If so, and if it was at nigh, is it one of the newer cars with a driver illuminating IR light?

    New Store and Service Center (and Superchargers!) - Liberty Lake, WA

    Did they say why the design is off by 90 degrees?

    FSD Beta 10.11

    Fsd builds on production forks have the third digit as a multiple of 5. I would expect 2022.12.5 or 2022.12.10 if this fork is going to be where they incorporate 10.12.

    FSD Beta 10.11

    Ha! Good spot. I shouldn’t have made that comment: hyperbole doesn’t come across well in my (poor) writing. I was trying to state that a system designed today would probably use different kit…but…failed. Thanks for the link to old/low-res (and still sold!) camera modules. I’ll stop polluting...

    FSD Beta 10.11

    I would assume that, as they approach the next whole number release, more and more development efforts would be toward that release. If it is able to be driven by employees, they wouldn’t be internally testing the 10.x variants as much. I would expect only some of the items that could be back...

    What charge rate did you get rickroadsterX?

    FSD Beta 10.11

    I had the same fleeting hope that this release, due to the .5 ending, was a new fsd version. But then I remembered that the third number needed to be a multiple of 5 for it to be the beta, not the forth number. (Or they stop releasing general builds, and the beta just gets the next sequential...

    Supercharger - Salem, OR

    Peak charge rate of 202kW starting at 9% charge. I like that there is a v3 supercharger in Salem, but the time it takes to get there from the freeway makes the adjacent v2 chargers congested because they are better for road trips.

    Supercharger - Chehalis, WA

    It seems that the new set of chargers is to add capacity and speed, rather than coverage. It’s an interesting approach that is yet to be achieved by the other charging players, who appears to still be constructing 4 carter stations. My math is that, for every 6 cars traveling on supercharging...

    FSD Beta 10.10 Release Notes

    Summary: he fsd ui crashes and cameras fail to boot at start. Since upgrading to 10.10.2, I drove about 200 miles, mainly on the autopilot stack. The end of it had about 20 miles on the fsd stack, and the car had three times where there were ui or camera errors. Twice the ui froze in place...
