    Firmware 8.0 - For Classic Model S

    biggest disappointment is the ability to alphabet search through artist, albums or folders. it is impossible to search your usb drive for anything beginning with the letter S. Media is not more intuitive and went backwards in some cases.

    Any reason not to let Firestone mount my wheels?

    only comment is that tire stores may resort to impact wrench on the lugs and this will damage the Tesla lugs. make sure they do it manually.

    Has your car shut down before it hits zero?

    Absolutly, but still good information to have.

    Has your car shut down before it hits zero?

    Maybe that is a better thread to have, "How Far Beyond Zero Have You Gone?" :scared:

    Has your car shut down before it hits zero?

    I have been waiting for this thread for some time now. Never have had a shut down. Have been to -3 before, meaning I had to go three miles beyond 0 to get to the next SC, made it! Like a Seinfeld episode riding on empty baby!

    Supercharger in Orlando (Turkey Lake Turnpike Plaza)

    Exactly the same story with stall 3A and 3B this past Friday evening @Lawsteve. reported it to Tesla. I also politly informed the driver of the same stall charging issue, which he was not aware. We need to keep educating as we go.

    EV Charging etiquette

    @TTT said it earlier, use the Supercharger QR app. great you do not give up any personal information and they concerned party can scan the QR code and a message is sent to you phone to let you know that someone is in need of the spot. works great!

    Saleen Foursixteen Video with sound from modified drivetrain.

    Need to do a survey of who wants sound and who prefers silent. not sure who Saleen interviewed but appears to me that more prefer the silence. I know I do. It is typically the first question that ICE operators ask.

    Using EVTripplanner, how many buffer miles should I add between SCs?

    Good start yes, but does not give you changing conditions during the actual drive. For me, in Florida, that thunderstorm really changed the outcome. i would hate to have calculated it that close then hit a wind storm and not make the target all together??

    Using EVTripplanner, how many buffer miles should I add between SCs?

    Just completed my first long distance this past weekend. my experience is that you will need to add +60 miles to target location. My trip was Orlando to Tallahassee cruise set to plus 70 mph. I found that managing the delta between my avg projected miles on the energy screen and distance left to...

    Lake City Supercharger

    Taking road trip 8/22 from Orlando to Tallahassee. What is the possibility of Lake City being operational? How do I confirm? Otherwise will have to slow charge in Gainesville. Would be great to skip that!
