    Curb Rash / Wheel Repair - South Florida

    Rim FX in West Palm Beach actually did the wheel repairs for Tesla WPB. They are legit.

    Supercharger - Port St. Lucie, FL - Fort Pierce Service Plaza

    Yes I am aware and that is why I have no idea how you'll be charged for the tolls. Like you said, maybe no charge, maybe charged 2x.... Who knows?

    Supercharger - Port St. Lucie, FL - Fort Pierce Service Plaza

    Totally possible but I have no idea how they'd charge you for the tolls.

    FS: OEM 21" Tesla Model S Charcoal Grey Turbine Wheels w TPMS, Tires, Lug nuts, center caps, and wheels covers included

    Your contribution is very much appreciated. I have already turned down offers higher than referenced in post 3. Worst case scenario, I have a perfectly good set of tires (worth about $1600) that I can replace my current tires with and sell the wheels with no tires.

    Supercharger - Port St. Lucie, FL - Fort Pierce Service Plaza

    Wait what? So are all of the Superchargers on Tpike supposed to be free or only the ones that were added as part of this initiative from DeSantis? If not all of them, can someone provide a list of which Superchargers are supposed to be free?

    FS: OEM 21" Tesla Model S Charcoal Grey Turbine Wheels w TPMS, Tires, Lug nuts, center caps, and wheels covers included

    Just realized I only noted these are located in Palm Beach County... For those who don't know, this is in South Florida. Apologies for the oversight.

    FS: OEM 21" Tesla Model S Charcoal Grey Turbine Wheels w TPMS, Tires, Lug nuts, center caps, and wheels covers included

    $3250 Up for sale is an OEM Tesla wheel package that were takeoffs from my personal car. Wheels have been professionally ceramic coated by www.wrapmytesla.com. Tires have approximately 2000 miles on them so they are in excellent condition (see pics). Wheels have no curb rash or damage and have...

    Anyone wondering about the "Coming Soon" Supercharger Stations in Florida?

    I have free supercharging and have Supercharged 90% of the time with no affect on my range on the 3 different Teslas I have owned. I strongly believe the affects of frequent supercharging are vastly overstated. If it was such a bad thing then why are they building supercharging...

    EV Rebates may be returning soon including Tesla based off current administrations package

    The bill's wording says vehicle MSRP so it looks like you are correct. However, I see someone trying to challenge this. It won't be me, but I am sure someone will.

    Anyone wondering about the "Coming Soon" Supercharger Stations in Florida?

    I live 2mins from this Wawa. I hope they install them!

    EV Rebates may be returning soon including Tesla based off current administrations package

    Just an FYI, I've seen a purchase agreement for a Plaid S and Tesla lists it at $64,990 and notes the Plaid option at $55,000. My guess is this is Tesla's way of circumventing the $80k cap price so anyone buying any Tesla is eligible for this tax credit if it goes through.

    Red Vs Blue for Modal X, what would you pick

    There's probably a 1000 places in San Diego that does vehicle wraps. Just be sure they've done Tesla's (specifically the model S or X). I had to go to 3 different places to finally get someone to wrap the mirrors properly. Apparently they are difficult? Rims are OEM Tesla wheels. You can opt...

    Anyone wondering about the "Coming Soon" Supercharger Stations in Florida?

    Just passed Yeehaw Junction service plaza and saw a whole new row of what appear to be non Tesla fast chargers across from the existing Superchargers. They still had some shrink wrap on them and were a different color and design so I’m pretty sure they aren’t Tesla chargers. I caught a glimpse...

    Delivery Process - created and staffed by clowns

    3 Teslas deep now and each purchase and delivery process was simple and pleasant. Minimal paperwork and documents to sign, loan process was a piece of cake, and delivery was done in a timely and professional manner. I guess I am lucky with the West Palm Beach, FL Tesla store? There was a...

    Power from solar tiles seems crazy high

    I have an 11.69kW system and my max daily production on a southern facing roof with no interruptions (basically a perfect day) of exposure is around 70kWh for a single day. I am located in south FL and have panels (not solar roof).

    Raven Performance Boost OTA Update!

    600kW is new. Max power output is now up to 614kW. Cheetah stance is crazy but takes about 4-5secs to fully engage (lower to the bump stops). See vid from @fiksegts (Dragtimes) that we did today. Fun times.

    Crap. I attached the same pic twice. Oops. See below. Software version - 2020.12.5

    Raven Performance Boost OTA Update!

    Just got this update. Testing coming soon. Hoping for some new 0-60, 60-130, and 1/4 mile times.

    I tried "Launch Mode" for the first time today.

    Porsche Taycan Vs Tesla Model S: Review, Road Test, Race, Charging

    I was comparing charging infrastructure, not cars. I defer to your first hand knowledge of these chargers. I have only seen a few at random gas stations here and there and there has always been one station with 1 or 2 plug options so I assumed this was the norm. I was speaking from first hand...

    Porsche Taycan Vs Tesla Model S: Review, Road Test, Race, Charging

    The other issue with these chargers is there are only 1 or 2 per location. In comparison, most Superchargers have at least 6 stalls and many have 12 or more. If you were to count actual plug in points as a comparison (not sure if that is documented anywhere) I think you'd really see the disparity.

    I am hoping to race the Taycan at the upcoming track rental. Fingers crossed they show up.

    Porsche Taycan Turbo S and Turbo performance numbers....

    Looks like the claim of no performance drop ain't quite what they claim. Also, check out this "Supercharging" session summary for the Taycan below (scroll down).

    New Tesla Service Center & Store in West Palm Beach!

    If I was a betting man I would not count on those destination chargers being avalable to public unless you're in some kind of emergency situation. I can almost guarantee you they'll be for their demo fleet. Just like all the chargers at the Gardens Mall. Really amazes me they didn't allocate...

    New Tesla Service Center & Store in West Palm Beach!

    There is no room at the new Service Center for them. The entire back parking area will be fenced in (from what I was told) and dedicated to cars in for service and new car deliveries. The remaining parking lot is rather small and many spots will be occupied by their demo cars. And the WaWa...

    New Tesla Service Center & Store in West Palm Beach!

    I was just at the Palm Beach service center and was told they were hoping to be in the new location in March. Also, there will be NO superchargers at the new location. They installed about 8-10 destination chargers but these will likely be for their demo cars if I had to guess. Really...

    Recommended South FL tire shops for Tire Rotation

    Any reputable tire shop can do it. Outside of putting the car in jack mode (assuming you have air suspension) and lifting the car on it's lift points, there is nothing unique about rotating the tires.

    Supercharger - West Palm Beach, FL - Garden Road

    No surprise there. Wawas are typically pleasant to visit but due to the proximity of some questionable areas this has to be one of the worst Supercharging locations in FL. I have submitted several complaints to the Wawa customer service link on their website about this location. Mainly for...

    Ludicrous Plus Widget

    I agree. I wish when you're in luda + mode you could just mash both pedals then release brake or activate a button on the steering wheel to be a brake hold. That would be nice. However, I have not had the process hinder me when drag racing. I think it messed me up like once or twice. As...

    PAST EVENT: Tesla Meet-up for Dinner at Sonny's BBQ & Drag Racing at Homestead Miami Speedway

    If the rules are similar to the Palm Beach track I would bring a helmet if you have one. Also, wear long pants and closed toe shoes. For those who have never drag raced here are some tips. If you have a performance model activate the easter egg ludicrous mode while Supercharging at Sonny's...

    PAST EVENT: Tesla Meet-up for Dinner at Sonny's BBQ & Drag Racing at Homestead Miami Speedway

    Just got word from the track for those who might have similar questions as I had... 1/8 mile side by side racing Glass roof cars require driver to wear helmet. Track is open to anyone with a car. This is not a Tesla only event. Still fun though! I guess this is a normal test and tune night...

    Porsche Taycan Vs Tesla Model S: Review, Road Test, Race, Charging

    No teslalog. There was a bit of spin so that might be the issue.
  36. Racerx22b

    Porsche Taycan Vs Tesla Model S: Review, Road Test, Race, Charging

    Completed the test. Road didn't "feel" as sticky today and had a tad bit of spin on the launch. Car was at 100% SOC, full geeked out easter egg ludicrous mode, and launch mode used. I did 2 passes which were about the same. Interesting to see that the peak power only was up 3kW from the run...

    Porsche Taycan Vs Tesla Model S: Review, Road Test, Race, Charging

    According to our resident math professor this is not needed. He or she has it all figured out with a formula.

    Porsche Taycan Vs Tesla Model S: Review, Road Test, Race, Charging

    Based on all available evidence, the Model S has many recorded runs in the 10.5 and 10.6 range. The Taycan did a 10.69 so one would have to think that the Model S is still the 1/4 mile EV king. It is clear that TG did not have the Model S in the proper settings to provide the best possible...

    There are public roads then there are "public roads". I appreciate the concern tho. All precautions will be taken.

    Porsche Taycan Vs Tesla Model S: Review, Road Test, Race, Charging

    Good news! Just got the power update via new software. I'm gonna repeat the testing at full battery, full geeked out Ludicrous mode, and with launch mode in the next few days. Interested to see if it makes any significant change. I am gonna guess low 10.5s. Hoping for 10.4s but doubtful...

    Porsche Taycan Vs Tesla Model S: Review, Road Test, Race, Charging

    While I am 100% confident that Top Gear is a group of ass hats, I can live with a .1sec variation considering all the possible variables (weather, surface, wind, driver weight, etc...). Having said that I am probably 240lbs fully clothed. I think I have a few lbs on their test driver. LOL
  44. Racerx22b

    Porsche Taycan Vs Tesla Model S: Review, Road Test, Race, Charging

    So this confirms that Top Gear either has no idea how to properly test the Tesla or purposely rigged the test to make the Taycan appear to be faster. I don't know how any reputable organization testing cars wouldn't be scratching their heads and calling everyone they know to see what it is...

    Porsche Taycan Vs Tesla Model S: Review, Road Test, Race, Charging

    So I ran the test as requested... 81% SOC (TG claims they were at 85%) Range Mode On Driving mode = Ludicrous (No Ludicrous + or Ludicrous ++ Easter Egg) No Launch Mode Conditions were standard asphalt immediately following rain but road was dry I couldn't figure out how to turn off the rollout...
