    Cybertruck 240v output power?

    I'm also interested in how much power you could push through the cybertrucks 240 output. Most likely it will depend on the power connector they choose to use. Just because people will want to use it to do do conventional tools and welding equipment; I have to imagine they will use something...

    In February Musk stated he'd release renditions "in about a month."

    Confused.... Post Date says Jan 28th Post Title: references "In February Musk Stated..." Post Content: says "It's been 2 months" Current Date: March 3rd So many questions.... If you meant musk said this in February 2020, then two months past then would be April 2020, but You posted in Jan...

    Why do so many Tesla owners wrap their cars?

    I think it is because many Tesla owners are actually conservative spenders; who are spending way more than they ever would for any other car, They spent 50k+ on a Tesla, when normally they just drive used honda civics or mazdas, or cheap hybrids, but just because they are geeks or enjoy the...

    Model 3 new USB C center console data hub from model Y?

    I bought a second adapter; just in case I want to do the front in the future.... But I don't see myself doing it soon; I ran cables from the 12V outlet years ago now bringing some higher powered cable leads to my jeda for fast wifi charging, so the cost benefit of doing it in the front is low...

    Model 3 new USB C center console data hub from model Y?

    Did a video when I upgraded the rears if anyone wants a visual walkthrough before pulling the trigger:

    Model 3 new USB C center console data hub from model Y?

    I just got my adapter in the mail yesterday and the rear vent assembly from tesla today. I put it in without a hitch; and I was able to use 2 usb-c watt meters and show 25+ watts pulling on each port AT THE SAME TIME! That means you can pull 50+ watts of power out of those rear ports combined...

    Black Model 3 parts on Tesla Parts catalog

    Ha, one time I bought a base model Mazda 3 and it had roll up windows. I browsed the parts catalog and retrofitted power windows including new wiring harnesses; I was also able to upgrade the steering wheel and add in cruise control by meticulously going through the parts catalog, buying the...

    2020.24.6.4 !

    Depends... How cold is it outside? Preconditioning could definitely help for a 50kw charger if it was winter outside and your car was frozen.

    Model 3 bio-defense filter? Anyone heard of one?

    I have one of those HEPA filters from the amazon link. It smells nice and seems to be working as my airflow is more restricted than before; I have to bump the fan rate up a bit to get the desired cooling/ heating effect occasionally. Remember that if you want to use it for filtering purposes...

    Retro fit AP 2.5 to 3.0 is starting to happen

    I agree! I'm so tired of seeing people confuse the two and giving out misinformation.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Tesla could make this a profit center. I can't imagine the parts of an MCU (intel atom and LCD screen) are more than $500 and labor to install couldn't be more than $500 as well. I'm sure plenty here would pay ~3K for the upgrade. I'd bet they could have 300 million dollars in revenue and 200...

    News for Model X owners with the dreaded shudder

    I've had amazing service at the Salt Lake City Service Center; I had previously expressed interest in getting my shudder fixed (Months ago) and they said there would be a fix out soon. They called me a month ago saying they had the new fix and parts available. THEY CALLED ME! My X was at a body...

    245 miles at 80 percent - Mid Range

    I had this issue; my LR said 100% was 280 miles. I found hanging out for a week or two in 20%-50% battery range (charging only to 50%) and then finally charging to 100% (be sure to let it continue charging at 100% until it says "Charging Complete" This seemed to have recalibrated the battery and...

    Elon Confirms S & X Are Chopped Liver

    I get different strokes for different folks; but The falcon wing doors on Model X was one of the major reasons I got the car in 2017. Been loving them especially since we have kids in car seats. I guess objectively there were some teething pains at the beginning with the paint rubbing around the...

    Elon Confirms S & X Are Chopped Liver

    Tesla: [Develops amazing cars with a body style that is critically acclaimed and considered by many to be the most functional, beautiful and desirable car ever. Model X Design only really comes out in 2016 and is only 3 years old.] Tesla: [Continually and systematically improves the design of...

    Acceleration Shudder

    I got called yesterday to have the new parts installed to fix this issue! Unfortunately, its in the body shop because some kid skidded down our rear bumper pulling out of a parking spot. So we have it scheduled for 2 weeks from now. I was happy they actually called me on getting this issue fixed...

    CHAdeMO Charging the Model 3

    Oh sorry, I should have looked a bit more closely; the SR vs. LR battery is most likely the biggest difference here. Took a screenshot of my session in the chargepoint app that started ~40% and ends at 90% battery: Imgur

    CHAdeMO Charging the Model 3

    There is one near my work; It is usually blocked by ICE vehicles though; but if I get a chance to test it before anyone else responds; I will.

    CHAdeMO Charging the Model 3

    Good Data; just tried mine for the first time today; I charged from ~40-90% When it hit 90% it was still pushing 37kW; (Charging Session Peak 46kW) while your graph looks like it had dropped to 16-20kW by 90% so looks like the curves can vary based on SOC when starting the charge.

    Anyone tested S/X CHAdeMO Adapter on Model 3

    I'm ok with waiting; but I'm irked at being in a limbo state. Tesla already took all the congratulations for bringing CHAdeMO to model 3 owners; the media wrote their articles and praised Tesla for it weeks ago; but the reality is that nobody can actually use it; that is absurdly obnoxious to...

    Anyone tested S/X CHAdeMO Adapter on Model 3

    I just sent a request to Tesla support to see if they'd push me the 2019.24 update....... Still can't use my adapter.

    Anyone tested S/X CHAdeMO Adapter on Model 3

    Hehe, yeah. I sound more jaded than I actually am; Its great they finally are enabling it. Its just a little strange how Tesla rolls stuff like this out. I mean they accidentally updated the website ~5 weeks ago to specifically mention the 3 now was supported by the CHAdeMO adapter; then pulled...

    Anyone tested S/X CHAdeMO Adapter on Model 3

    Yep; It is such a great customer experience to be sitting here on a $450 paperweight while I read week old headlines that say: "Tesla opens access to CHAdeMO chargers for Model 3 drivers" - Green Car Reports "Tesla Model 3 In North America Finally Can Use CHAdeMO Adapter" -Inside EVs "Tesla...

    Charge Port Door Closing Too Quickly?

    The Glovebox is a great place for that j1772 adapter; completely out of the way; it stays put and doesn't roll around since the bin goes more upright when closed; and is quickly and easily accessible.

    Anyone tested S/X CHAdeMO Adapter on Model 3

    Haha yeah; Luckily I can use it on our X as well; we will be camping this weekend through an area with no superchargers, but a CCS/CHAdeMO combo on the way; so this is great timing and the other main reason I ordered it; because of this yearly camping trip.

    Anyone tested S/X CHAdeMO Adapter on Model 3

    Oh you are right; there is 1 car listed that is 3 (Not S or X) listed of there. Well that's progress as only S,X had it when I checked day before yesterday. Also in other questions... Do you connect the CHAdeMO adapter to the car first or the charging cabinet first?

    Anyone tested S/X CHAdeMO Adapter on Model 3

    Yep, firmware trackers show no model 3 has 2019.24.x to date; hopefully we don't have to wait much longer. I wonder if I attempt to use the CHAdeMO adapter if it will trigger an update :P

    Anyone tested S/X CHAdeMO Adapter on Model 3

    Well... my CHAdeMO adapter arrives today; but software update 2019.24.1 nowhere to be seen for Model 3..... Guess we keep waiting?

    [Updated] Model 3 CCS / CHAdeMO adapter

    Well boys /thread! Thanks for listening Tesla Team! edit: Also... ORDERED! With this; Tesla has given me back "Free Supercharging" for $450 as there are several free chademo stations near my work. I already was using free stations, but they maxed out at 6.6kw usually; so quite slow. Should be...

    P3D vs AWDLR highway range is the same?

    Thats right. The consensus is that given the same wheels; those two cars should perform identically on range; as other than software; they are identical cars (with some motors being "binned" on the P, and potentially some different struts that lower the P by 1cm)

    What’s the one thing you like the least about your Model 3?

    Naw... I agree with you; coming from a Mazdaspeed3 originally and I learned to love hatchbacks with this car. I thought I could handle the Model 3 not being a hatchback because the trunk was so large and the rear end is cavernous. Week one with the car; I couldn't get a large cardboard box in...

    Stock model 3 18 inch wheels on a P3d

    Its been confirmed that aero wheels would fit in the fronts with a spacer, but the rear won't. I'm considering doing a hybrid setup with front stock aero wheels; rears as grey t-sportline. (Aerodynamic efficiency is most important on the front wheels). Would look something like this: Imgur

    Charging safely at 9/12 amps?

    In the meantime if you do continue to use this socket; dial the amps down to 5-6 at the very least.

    Can't decide between AWD and performance

    I have P3D+, I love it, but I'm also an efficiency nerd... and I want to play around with the aero wheels; and I can't. If I had to do it again.... I might just go AWD. Its definitely a hard decision.

    Interest in Wheels/Tires Designed for Range Increases of 8-13%?

    If you end up checking the spacers that carcrazed is mentioning let us know... There is a guy near me who has a brand new set of aero wheels+tires for cheap that I'm seriously considering if I can adapt them for P3D+ Also some people have mentioned using these spacers...

    Pi Zero W - Dashcam and Music Sync Control from Browser

    Remember, you CAN turn your Pi Zero on at will remotely! Just go into the app and turn the climate control ON. That will turn your rpi on as well, then just log into the web interface, or ssh into the rpi zero w. (assuming you are in a known place that you have wifi on the rpi zero) For the...

    Anyone else worried that V3 Superchargers not being shared might be a mistake?

    Note: This is pure speculation and I don't know much about supercharging equipment of any version. The way I understand it is that they ARE shared in sections of 4 chargers attached to a 1MW cabinet, but each post or charger can supply up to 250kW (the maximum any car can take at any given...

    LR RWD to receive firmware upgrade to 325 miles...actual capacity bump??

    I was just about to go pull that quote as well.. Either Elon is just blowing smoke about what is possible, not what is ACTUALLY happening, or we take him at face value on these statements. I can think of three speculative ways that Tesla could have adjusted the firmware to truly increase the...

    $2k FSD Upgrade for EAP Owners Now Live

    I bought 5k EAP when I purchased... I planned on having to pay 4K later for FSD... Now I'm getting a 2K discount... I understand how some are mad just because those who didn't invest up front for EAP are getting a better deal. Personally though I'm just excited I can get FSD for cheaper than...

    FSD Upgrade

    I'm in the exact same boat with 2.0 hardware that doesn't do dashcam. I suspected the X would get the 3k offer and I just jumped on it. I'm really hoping that it will also upgrade the MCU as well. My guess is they pretty much will have to in order to support the quicker responding AP system; but...

    What's your top feature request that could be accomplished via software update?

    Idea to improve model 3 software; Have the side mirror LCDs stop dimming when near your garage door (tie to homelink). The dimming makes checking the side car clearance difficult at night using side view mirrors when turning into tight garage spaces.
