I took delivery of my 3 on Monday. It’s apparently the 10th black Model 3 in New Jersey. I’ve been driving a Model S P85D for almost 3 years, so I thought I’d share initial thoughts from that perspective... and probably put together a video comparison. (I’ve also driven a recent P100D, so when I compare to the S, I’m also taking into account...
Methods for resetting various features in the Model X:
Press and hold both scroll buttons for a few seconds. Center console display will turn black and reboot.
Press and hold both of the steering wheel buttons above the scroll wheels. IC display will turn black and reboot.
Reset of 'most' systems (4 fingers)...
I have poor language skills. Sugar=profanity.
I work in manufacturing. A lot of experience, way harder than cars.
I’ve worked at north americas largest powder coat oven as an engineer, before I went into waaaay harder:
We had a highly automated conveyance system fed by robotics - finished parts hung onto automated carriers feeding many spray...
Interestingly, immediately after the Musk segment was broadcast by "60 Minutes", their online "Overtime" website featured a monologue by the segment's producer praising Musk for his openness and honesty, which the producer viewed as refreshingly different from that of other CEOs that they have featured. That monologue was soon removed from the...
Ever since the 100D came out, I have been planning to upgrade from a 70D. The only reservation I've had is AP1 vs AP2's feature gap dramatically affecting my road trips. I eagerly arranged an AP2 test drive when 8.1 came out. I've had 17,000 miles in the last 8 months with AP1, and just finished around 150 miles of AP2 driving in a S P90D with...
Today I was reading the following thread (which is wonderful by the way) about the known and unknown properties of the HW2 camera suite. I suggest you read it if you're into highly technical stuff:
AP2.0 Cameras: Capabilities and Limitations?
However, even after seven months since release, nobody has decided to disassemble the...
I've seen multiple hints that Panasonic is angling for a merger with Tesla. They did a very curious reorganization a while back, putting their entire worldwide battery business under their primary North American corporate entity -- and IIRC removing a bunch of other stuff (such as retail consumer product sales) from their North American...
One way I attempt to assess how Tesla feels about their cash position is tracking progress with the supercharger network. Superchargers are important to Tesla's long-term strategy, but in the short term Tesla can ramp up or down spending on them based on how much money needs to be directed to more pressing priorities. First comes permits;...
I think I found a clue regarding the 'titanium mystery' of why Elon is using titanium in the Tesla Pickup Truck, there's been a recent breakthrough in titanium alloys:
Enhanced strength and ductility in a high-entropy alloy via ordered oxygen complexes. - PubMed - NCBI
"Enhanced strength and ductility in a high-entropy alloy via ordered...
So, with all the discussions about the Model 3's 12V frunk opening system, I thought it would be interesting to see what would happen if you didn't use a 12V portable jumpstarter... but rather a standard 9V alkaline battery.
TSLA trading volume had been quite heavy the previous five days as the share price soared upward, then volume dried up today. That implies a lack of participation by institutions today other than hedge funds. October 31 marks the end of the fiscal year for many of them. Under the current two-day settlement rule, yesterday would have been the...
UPDATE on this terrible accident -
Earlier today I talked with a crew of police & firemen who had responded to this horror. I learned that the testimony they took from the scarcely-injured Model X driver included the following extremely interesting material (I need to paraphrase here):
"I saw nothing. All of a sudden my X slammed on its...
FYI, as of 18.39 it can detect following object:
PASSENGER_CAR = 1,
LIGHT_TRUCK = 2,
TRUCK_2AXLE = 3,
TRUCK_MULTIAXLE = 4,
MOTORCYCLE = 5,
BICYCLE = 6,
PEDESTRIAN = 7
All of them have different rendering
Why doesn't UBS disclose that it is massively shorting TSLA?
$446M in June
$402M in March
$682M last December
UBS needs Tesla to fail.
Pretty disturbing if true (buried in latest NY Times re-hash):
"At 6:30 a.m. on Aug. 18, three robots in the paint shop at the Tesla factory in Fremont, Calif., started malfunctioning. The incident forced a production halt on the Model 3, the key to the company’s future.
Made aware of the stoppage, Mr. Musk went to the factory and worked into...
At some point within the last month or so Tesla has added code to the firmware updater on the car that prioritizes firmware patch downloads when on WiFi and will delay downloading patches when not on WiFi.
The update server will now give the updater on the car a timeout date for when to give up trying to get the update if the car never...
This guy usually is quite up to speed when it concerns GF1, so I thought this might be useful information. Not verified though.
CFRA has apparently replaced long-time Tesla skeptic Efraim Levy with Garrett Nelson as their Tesla analyst.

I can't compete with the internet in terms of educational material. There's so much great stuff out there that explains deep learning it's just crazy. Of course if there's any particular thing you would like pointers on I'll try to help.
I haven't been posting much stuff on the AP2 NN lately because real facts are hard to come by and I'm not...
