    When is structural battery pack & 4680 cells coming & Why are you not waiting until then?

    Well, I didn't wait. two lead -acid and one FLAWED, used, LiFePhos packs later I would LOVE 220 - 4680s to get my second iteration[or maybe 3rd]. The 4680s would allow me to reconfigure the traction pack design. The T-bone design got me on the road 2003-2014, but the gap was too big; all packs...

    Love bug swarm in Florida.. Reports from Ev car owners requested

    Mtapes, Thanks! Love the power of images! Now, how does the compare to the 'harvest' on gassers? From the media story it seems as if the whole front of a car would be darkened with bug bodies. IF EVs run cooler, [less attractive] and lack the pheromone load of petrol- base fuel, I expect less...

    Confessions of a Model X driver

    Well.... I beat an S across an intersection in a 2000 toyota PU..Stunned! Until I realized the car was staying precisely in the middle of the white lines as it pulled into a left -turn lane.

    Solar City IPO

    I'd say wait. My battery pack money just disappeared w/A123. I bought IPO to support the company.. I knew the risk but could do nothing after I recognized the corporate raider when he arrived on the scene. live & learn Nowadays I would buy the product to support the company, instead!

    Road trips - feed back please.

    Thanks Chad. May I ask you to review your trip more precisely for the time between SF [or SV] and LA??? I am still hoping there are others testing the range envelope of their Teslas who have made this run. Not to sound sexist, but the guys asking hte question live in a normative world and...

    Road trips - feed back please.

    O.k., I used to drive pedal to the metal LA to SF, SF to Seattle... early seventies... mostly to get to gigs, but prefer the cruise-tour given the luxury of time. Lately, commuter types try to pin me down... How fast can a Tesla get to L.A. [from the S.F. Bay area]? This is as useless to me as...

    It's the Batteries, Stupid!

    AH it is nice to see that Seeking Alpha at least knows of Stan. I like to think that it was because of the corporate response to his good work that EV builders started investigating Li-ion tech. I'd like to see Chevron try and pull out all the cell phone and laptop batteries off the market! lol!
