    Deciding between 50A receptacle and Tesla Wall Charger …

    In my case, working from home since the world ended, charging speed is not a factor. In fact the 120v connection with the Tesla Mobile Charger is enough …. almost. SO ….. I’m looking at installing either a Hubbell 14-50R or the Tesla Wall Connector. Given the effort involved to run conduit...

    Tesla Light Show: Custom Show Creation

    Does anyone have the solution to this? I thought I could bypass this with a new sequence but I cannot check off any channel. Based on the documentation it appears this needs to function before anything new can be created. I tried Delete this element. They all pop up so naturally they all get...

    Thinking about getting a Model Y

    I leased a Model Y Performance. I did a two year lease in the expectation that the Juniper will be out by then and with a full year of build experience in the factory. I’ve taken it from Naples FL to Yonkers NY and back with the supercharger experience being absolutely seamless. It’s a...

    2024 MYP at the 1/8 mile ….

    Interesting comparisons but few MYP videos using an actual light tree and I rarely see time slips. So I did my own video. Preliminary plan now is to try Bradenton, a 1/4 mile track, about two hours away, with 32 psi. I also discovered that the Shortcuts in the iPhone has a built in “Start...

    2024 MYP at the 1/8 mile ….

    The last time (my first time) I was at a dragstrip was 10/24/1998 at Milan Dragway in Milan, Michigan on my Honda CBR600F3 motorcycle (12.939 at 117.82) Tonight was the second time, at 1/8 mile Immokalee Regional Raceway.

    FSD v12.x (end to end AI)

    I keep looking in-car and in-app for this mythical “2024.14.6” I see mentioned in youtube but there is no notice. I just keep seeing: Software: v11.1 (2024.3.25 somecodenumber) -

    I am frankly shocked by how stunningly ugly the Cybertruck is

    I had no love for it since intro and still none in all the recent youtube videos. It is not photogenic lol But I kept an open mind. Finally saw one in real life at the West Silver Springs Ocala, FL supercharger … and it looks great :D Personally I would wrap it in a clear PPF, just to make...

    Direct 18" vs. 20" wheel comparison for efficiency

    They were pretty surefooted in the wet at highway speeds, including thru curvy Virginia I-95. In town in NY, one a wet day recently, there was one instance where I was getting on to these things called parkways. Think four lanes across, no traffic lights, a very local highway if you will. One...

    Direct 18" vs. 20" wheel comparison for efficiency

    I was initially disappointed to find that my 2024 MYP came with Hankook ION EVO AS vs Michelin Pilot Sport AS but those Hankooks are very quiet on the highway. In 3400 miles I’m at 296 wh/mi (might be 295). A lot of highway miles, did a road trip from FL to NY and back

    Long Road Trip - Is it possible to customize charge duration during stops?

    there seems to be about a 4% cost overnight for Sentry mode. I’m fine hopping in, heading over to the SC* and plugging in while I in-car plan my stop(s) to my destination. * I deliberately choose SCs and hotel that are in close proximity, less than 5min driving time

    What am I getting with Plaid vs Long Range?

    pumping gas vs pumping electrons is a different mindset. I got my first ever full EV this past April 19 and did my first ever long range this past week, FL to NY. It’s just …. different. I knew it would be different. I didn’t know in what way but simply kept an open mind. Instead of...

    The Plaid reads as having better brakes (not just painted red)

    Need help deciding on a purchase

    I test drove a 2023 MYLR and ended up leasing a 2024 MYPerf. The MYPerf is a better riding vehicle in every way. The suspension damping is better sorted, the ride is quieter and it has more power (obviously). I got the Performance for the occasional track day and did wonder about how...

    Long Road Trip - Is it possible to customize charge duration during stops?

    I used three methods: ABRP, very customizable, including desired charge levels Google Maps. It recognizes ‘supercharger’ as a search term Finally the Tesla online planner. It gave me an idea of supercharger locations to then cross-reference in the ABRP and Google Maps. I purposely chose...

    Strongly considering a lease vs buy (MYP). Pros/Cons?

    I did it, today, leasing a new 2024 MYP, picking up April 19. I went with existing inventory instead of building one. Doing a Two year lease. Did it under my personal name. Taking advantage of the new $5,xxxx additional discount along with the $7,500 credit =============== Design Model Y...

    Forming an LLC (or S Corp) to lease (yes, lease)

    I'm strongly considering forming an entity to lease a Tesla (considering a Model Y). Have you done such a thing? What was your experience like? My goal is writing off some of the lease (50%, maybe 2/3) as I plan to create Youtube content with the vehicle, as well as writing off other expenses...

    Strongly considering a lease vs buy (MYP). Pros/Cons?

    I’m still leaning toward the lease but more strongly considering creating an LLC to lease the vehicle. Will write off the MYP against Youtube review videos. Working from home makes using the MYP mainly for youtube a realistic scenario. Planned road trips, track days, etc. I’d like to own but...

    Strongly considering a lease vs buy (MYP). Pros/Cons?

    That’s where my two year idea comes from, the Juniper coming out. Any lease is just a long term rental. If the value goes up you don’t make anything. But if the value tanks you don’t lose anything. -

    Strongly considering a lease vs buy (MYP). Pros/Cons?

    I’m strongly considering a two year lease. Pros / Cons? I had leased way back and went way over miles. That mileage has been the case for years but since the world ended many of us work from home. This means that mileage is no longer a factor. Being able to let the car go at the end of the...

    Model Y on the track

    For the dedicated race pads I was thinking of doing the race pads at the track then swapping back when leaving but this would have to include swapping rotors as well. I've changed pads and rotors before and I've done track days. But I've never changed pads and rotors at the track because it...

    Model Y on the track

    Ok, replace fluid with SRF (less moisture absorbance) Any recommendations concerning brake pads? 1. Something streetable that is also suited for track days 2. Full on race pads. Presumably this will also mean dedicated rotors, to avoid cross contamination.

    Hertz rental QR code not working - Any tips to get it to work?

    Thanks. I like it actually. The supercharger network keeps a Tesla in the running over something more flexible like a new Toyota Prime (new Prius model or RAV4) The Standard is pretty fast. It feels close to as fast as my old CBR600F3 race bike. -
