    Whats in those Superchargers

    I suppose there are a lot of restrictions on disclosing what's in Superchargers. What do they use? Triacs, SCRs, Thyratrons? I expect no one would have a diagram..even block? No, I don't want to build one. I just want to know how they handle all that power. Of course start with a...

    Longest Distance Between SCs

    Setting a 150 mile radius from superchargers is an interesting exercise. It looks like the record holder is Council Bluffs, Iowa. No other superchargers in that radius! Can you find others? Is that the largest radius?

    Tesla emblems problem

    I noticed during drying the Model S (June 2015) that both the right and left illuminated emblems stick out away from the body. It's the sharp end..the trailing edge that sticks out away from the body. I think those are candidates for breakage. Maybe it's just my car--but that's a fit and...
