    Time-Based Control?

    Mine did some pretty weird stuff today too. It stopped using energy from the Powerwalls during my peak period even though there was ~50% energy remaining and my reserve is all the way down at 25%. Then it even charged them up a little during peak. After the sun went down, it started using...

    Time-Based Control?

    I'm still waiting, but my install just finished on the 23rd. When I called at the end of last week, she said they couldn't give me a date it'd be sent to me, but that since I'm in California I'd have priority and that she expected it to be a matter of days, rather than weeks or months. Maybe...

    Time-Based Control?

    Twinsies from the other side of the planet! I just got my 2 Powerwalls installed today too! :D I also don't have ToU yet on 1.15.10 and 3.3.6 on Android. Sorry I don't have an answer to your question.

    Time of Use Power Shifting for Powerwall 2

    Just got my 2 Powerwalls installed today. I'm not able to set them to the new TOU modes, only Backup or Self-powered. Anybody have any idea why that might be before I call Tesla tomorrow? The Powerwalls are on version 1.15.10 and my Android app is version 3.3.6, which according to Tesla's...

    Braking distance concern by Consumer Reports

    Yeah, I just wish he handled everything like this rather than the way he's handled some other criticism lately.

    $78k PM3 AWD

    Yeah, I was expecting bigger brakes and better suspension for that price. $20k extra is a lot for going from 4.5 down to 3.5 seconds 0-60, some big wheels, and a carbon fiber spoiler. I don't think it's worth more than a $10k premium. I was fully expecting to buy the P3D, too. I also don't...

    Braking distance concern by Consumer Reports

    Ok, that was my mistake then. I didn't know where the Porsche track was, but knew Edmunds is in LA. When you said Carson, I was thinking it was tested in Nevada, but that's Carson City, so I was figuring the A4 and BMW were tested in LA and the Model 3 in NV for some reason. I would say the...

    Braking distance concern by Consumer Reports

    Are those numbers under the same conditions and on the same piece of pavement? CR tests showed 132ft for the 3-series and 135ft for the A5. Their initial 60-0 with the Model 3 was 130ft. MotorTrend's Model 3 stopped in 119ft in their test.

    Changes to invite priority, now only effected by date/time of reservation

    Yeah, I don't know how I feel about this exactly. I could not have waited in line if I wanted to (and probably still wouldn't have), but I ordered online pre-reveal and have owned my Model S for almost 5 years now. I've been supportive of the company for a long time, though not as long as many...

    Elon says AWD and Perf orders start at end of next week!

    Then why don't LMP1 cars go smaller than 18"? They, like Formula 1, are prototype cars and they can design the brakes to accommodate smaller wheels. They can go smaller than 18" if they want, but they all run 18's. The only car in recent years that I can remember that didn't was the Nissan...

    Elon says AWD and Perf orders start at end of next week!

    The real reason the teams don't want to change is because it would require a complete rethink of the design of the car, much bigger than the change we had last year. ~50% of the car's damping ability currently is through the sidewall of the tire, with the suspension itself handling the other...

    Elon says AWD and Perf orders start at end of next week!

    And better fluid. Wouldn't be surprised if the fluid was boiling in the car that did the laps around Laguna Seca.

    Elon says AWD and Perf orders start at end of next week!

    Because the rules don't allow anything else.

    Elon says AWD and Perf orders start at end of next week!

    Yeah, I think a lot of people like to use racing series as examples, but they tend to have regulations that restrict wheel size. Formula 1 restricts to 13" wheels. World Endurance Championship restricts most classes to no larger than 18", but they can run smaller than that. I think they all...

    I think you should go to sleep so I can be ahead of you in line. :)
