    2.0 / 2.5 Roadster / Roadster Sport Tire Thread

    I have used AD07s front and rear ($330 and $409) at Tire Rack. I get 18,000 miles on the front and only 6000 miles on the rear tires. But, of course, I follow the rule that at each traffic light when red turns to green the accelerator is required to be pushed to the floor!

    Kuat bike rack video for the Model Y

    I have the Kuat bike rack. It is great. I have the standard Tesla hitch. Even with the L shaped lock mentioned a few messages above, it is a real pain putting the lock on because of the electrical socket. I never plan to tow a trailer with this car--just use the bike rack. Is it possible to...

    Random Roadster Sightings

    I have frequently seen Dan O'Dowd driving his red Roadster here in town. I have known him since before he owned the Roadster! I would guess this is probably his. It is the only Roadster I see semi-regularly here in town. I think there are about a half dozen Roadsters in Santa Barbara.

    Roadster featured in Cyber Rodeo

    The tjllew Roadster story

    Nifty! Looks a lot like mine. I love the manual steering and the feel of the road--except when parallel parking. A difference in our cars--I never (well, almost never) put the top up!

    Cruise Control - Adjusting the Following Distance

    I was always taught you should be 3 seconds behind the car in front of you. So--longer distances at higher speeds.
