    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Are you sure? We could also easily go "yoke v no yoke" or "plaid v LR value". I'm probably forgetting like 3 more.

    Love this level of discussion and your graphics. I know just enough to know what I don't know so I appreciate those who know more or explain better lol.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Thanks for the ANC discussion - anything to break up the "OMAR PLEASE..." and "My Order 2/2 -> March -> Blank -> August -> Blank -> July (OMG WHAT CONFIGURATION IS TEH FASTEST?!?!?! -> Blank" discussion sequences. 😂

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Hah. That was my next observation - if how you (and omar) described it working is true (and it sounds about right to me), other sound sources within the car would be 'cancelled' as well whether that be voices or whatever. I can sort of see why this system would have to be 'smarter' than what we...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Yeah I am not even close to be being a sound engineer but that is my understanding which is why cancelling sound in the same space it is listened to is confusing to me. Headphone mics measure the sound outside the enclosed headphone speakers and cancels those frequencies. The sound being...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Yes but isn't there a difference in that engine noise inside a plane is measured outside of the 'space' where the sound is produced (the speaker on the headphone)? I mean, if you listen to someone talk while wearing ANC headphones their voice is a bit muddled because the headphone is cancelling...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I'm so confused as to how noise cancelling works when the microphones are inside the car. On my headphones the mic is on the outside of the speaker area because that is the sound it is measuring/cancelling. What frequencies does it choose to cancel when the sounds/notes are mixed in with...

    Nah a tech demo with larger tires than the Plaid (and a spoiler) will have a different traction limit. That is almost more evidence it is about traction limits.
  9. Q

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Not sure about this case but they are definitely hitting up against some traction limits. Basically you can't accelerate 0-60 any faster than you can brake from 60-0 and their times are almost the same. Great explanation here:
  10. Q

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I don't really worry about myself getting used to the yoke although it would be less than optimal for any sort of performance (or emergency) driving. My wife is going to absolutely HATE it to the point she will want to get rid of the car unless Tesla has some sort of other option. As I ordered a...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    While this beta UI interface that I'm sure the LR shares with the Plaid is some evidence (and might well be true once the car is released), the facts are that the history of non-performance models does not give any sort of go-faster options. Which 'fact' carries more weight? Who knows. Honestly...
  12. Q

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Tesla's non-performance models haven't ever come with any sort of 'go faster' mode (besides not defaulting to 'chill' lol) before so I'd assume the LR will not either. Right now it looks like the 3.1 is without rollout. That certainly isn't a guarantee but then why differentiate it on the...
  13. Q

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    The question I have is that the Plaid acceleration numbers are all done in plaid and track modes which aren't something you drive around in (typically). So, that is great for the track obviously but I'd like to know the difference between the Plaid and LR if I pull up to the stop light and...
  14. Q

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    One of the videos showed that passengers in the back could watch something separately than what is on the main screen but didn't go into whether or not the people in front could control what is being shown on that back screen.
  15. Q

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Historically the non-performance models don't have any sort of 'go faster' mode so I'd assume that number is just 'all the time' power/speed. Which does beg the question, how fast is the Plaid if 'go faster' launch sequence isn't activated (which honestly seems like a PITA).
