    umm. isn't stopping distance at 90 mph 600 feet? So if the tracker can only see 600 feet....then it limits to 90 mph? edit: changed braking to stopping.

    Can the Model S and I make things work?

    I lived off 110v for 2 months. Heck, I even took a road trip to Palm Springs (from OC) the first week I got the car (Plugshare is your friend as I found some NEMA 14-50 plugs I could use). I had to plan everything and monitor usage (created an Excel spreadsheet to determine how much range I...

    Storing the Model S

    :( OK so everyone i've talked to has recommended selling. now i gotta figure out how to do that. Any recommendations? Craigslist seems shady.

    Storing the Model S

    I anticipate that the job to be a one year stint overseas, with 2 trips back to the US (hence the 6 month in between). After the one year, I will negotiate more time to be spent in the US.

    Storing the Model S

    Yes, I was planning to have it plugged into 110V at 50%. The question is where? Would one go to Public Storage? Are there any people have used for a car? I am kinda thinking Storage Wars, and someone is gonna thrilled to win the auction of my storage unit.

    Storing the Model S

    I recently got a new job (yay me!). However, it entails traveling away months at a time (yay and nay). What should I do with my car? I have no plans to sell the car (unless I really have to). The stretches in between being away and being at home could be up to 6 months, so the car would need...

    Mouse in Frunk - Warning: Graphic Picture

    Just be careful with this trap. Although there is no blood and guts, the rubberband essentially strangles the mouse, and in their panic will urinate and defecate (if the band doesn't snap their neck). I used this trap in my apartment years ago, and a damn mouse triggered it while I was...

    Is there a way to get HomeLink to work for condo gates ?

    hadn't thought about linking to the condo gate entrance. thanks to this thread, my car now opens the gate and my garage! woohoo! just be sure to program your car near the gate so that the Homelink pops up when in close proximity (and not just at your home).

    Taking an on-ramp turn too fast?

    Thanks all for your replies. Yes.. i've heard in racing terms to pedal through the turn. I guess I never really experienced this as every time I hit an on-ramp, there is a line of cars there...so i trickle down. The rears probably have a few hundred miles on them now, and all tires are...

    Taking an on-ramp turn too fast?

    Yesterday something unexpected happened. I was driving on surface streets approaching a freeway on-ramp (the circular kind). Typically, as I begin my entry onto the on-ramp, I release the acc. pedal (going about 45 mph) and ride through to the bottom. This time, half-way down the ramp (with...
