    Tioga Pass - Model S 85 -- Is it doable??

    Just did the Groveland to Mammoth Lakes run in my 2012 P85 via Hwy 120, burned 162 “rated” miles over the 119 mile geographic distance, corresponding to a bit more than the 7 additional rated miles expended/1000 ft elevation gain, 4 miles regained from downhill regen/1000 ft rule of thumb.

If the efficiency improved, what is the consensus of TMC owners of old Model S cars as to how much? Might Elon...

    Shareholder Date of Record for Sept. 22 shareholder meeting?

    I looked at the latest Tesla SEC filings, but saw no date announced by Tesla that refers to the effective date of Tesla share ownership for purposes of being granted admission specifically to the Sept. 22 shareholder meeting. Has this effective date been announced? If not, could it still be...

    MCU Hardware Revisons

    @Ingineer, Might you know whether an MCU1 can be physically upgraded to MCU2 in a 2013 Model S (irrespective of cost), apparently also requires a wiring harness change? Thank you very much! Oliver Barrett

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Thanks all for the helpful info! No serious problems with my MCU yet, but I’m having a capacity remaining diagnostic done on my eMMC during my upcoming service center visit so I can keep an eye on it. Oliver Barrett

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I apologize if this question has already been answered in some previous post. Has there been any authoritative answer from either a) upper Tesla engineering management or b) knowledgeable 3rd party Tesla tinkerers such as Jason Hughes (wk057), to my question as follows: Is it physically...

    Preventive eMMC replacement on MCU1

    Hmm.. so a service center can look at the eMMC in my car and tell me how much capacity is left in it? Good to know if true. Thanks! Oliver Barrett

    Subwoofers anyone?!

    Be very cautious about connecting the amp 12V lead directly to the Tesla battery. If the Tesla 12V charging circuitry doesn’t “see” the amp current draw, the battery won’t be charged properly and will need premature replacement, resulting in the “12V battery requires service” message. I just...
