    Apple car

    Remember the old complaint about Macintosh computers not being "compatible" with a lot of Microsoft stuff? I'm sure there will be jokes about the Apple Car not being compatible with roads.

    Apple could build a chip factory and pay cash for it.

    Model S Plaid - One Year Later

    I went drag racing last night at Willow Springs International Raceway. You saw that place in the early scenes of "Ford v Ferrari." They use the straight on the Big Willow race course for drag racing. It's 1,000 feet with a slight uphill grade. My best time was 7.9 seconds. Ran nine races. Won...

    Model S Plaid - One Year Later

    I love mine! This is my third performance Model S. First was a 2015 P90DL. Then a 2020 Performance. And now Pippi Plaidstocking. I'm racing at Willow Springs International Raceway's drags tonight. :cool:

    Tips on drag racing your Model S Plaid...on the track.

    Correction to this article; Willow Springs' drag strip is 1,000 feet long, it was measured for track insurance purposes. However, the track has a slight upward incline, so ETs are going to suffer a little bit. Gravity is an enemy. :)

    Tips on drag racing your Model S Plaid...on the track.

    8.192 seconds against a yellow Camaro, 135.54 against another Plaid. Willow Springs is about 1,000 feet, not 1,320. State of charge, between 86% and 92%. My best time so far on this track (on another day) was 7.908. I hired a guy to shoot video, plus I shot footage on my iPhone and GoPro. Am...

    Tips on drag racing your Model S Plaid...on the track.

    Went drag racing last night at Willow Springs. Got in 6 races. Whacked a couple Hellcat Chargers and a badass Camaro, among others. Somehow I got distracted during the amber light countdown against a silver Hellcat, so he got the jump. But I caught him within about a hundred feet. Game over.

    To all small business owners

    I have VA healthcare. At a recent visit, I spoke with a doctor in residency. I asked how long he'd be in residency status, he said two more years. "Man, you must love the idea of being a physician to put up with endless schooling and endless practicing to be in practice. I would never have the...

    Rivian price increased massively - $15,500. Cancelled, I'm sure I'm not the only one.

    Good luck to those guys. They're facing a tough uphill fight.

    How has having an EV change you?

    I did say "steam punk" when looking under the hood.
  21. MichaelP90DL

    How has having an EV change you?

    I'm on my third Tesla Model S. Looking under the hood of any ICE car seems like an exercise in steam punk. Wires, hoses, air ducts, pumps, electrical equipment, radiator, fans, spark plugs, gas tubes, filters, fluid containers, etc.

    Tips on drag racing your Model S Plaid...on the track.

    The Tesla Plaid Channel is marvelous, I also subscribe. I'm happy the NHRA changed the rules, although flat out the MS Plaid might hit 150 mph in the quarter mile. Reaction time really isn't a big deal. Your ET calculation begins when your car trips the sensor by moving, not when the green light...

    what does your customized License plate (tags) say?

    I gotta get over there for dinner sometime soon. Thanks!
  24. MichaelP90DL

    what does your customized License plate (tags) say?

    Date of delivery? DMV says several months, all this due to covid-related problems.
  25. MichaelP90DL

    what does your customized License plate (tags) say?

    The plate I ordered above, 220 MPH, was declined. Can't use an O as a 0, which is dumb as hell since there is only one circular or oval character. So I ordered this. It's the time a Model S Plaid takes to scoot through a quarter mile.

    Supercharger - Red Bluff, CA (LIVE 27 Nov 2019, 8 V3 stalls)

    Tips on drag racing your Model S Plaid...on the track.

    For those who have not yet experienced what it’s like to be on a drag strip with your MS Plaid, this post is for you. Most big US drag strips operate under rules of the National Hot Rod Association, which is fine unless you drive a really quick, unmodified (stock) electric car. The Plaid can...

    Drag racing mode enabled, get "both pedals pressed" alert instead of launch.

    Am I doing something wrong? Went drag racing at Willow Springs yesterday. Won 10 races in my MS Plaid, lost one to another Plaid because of some kind of screw-up, about half way through the day's racing. Drag Strip Mode was enabled and fully operational. Left foot down and hold. Right foot down...

    I just, finally, figured it out. Turn off scheduled departure first to enable scheduled charging time. Duh. LOL

    2021 Model S Plaid

    OK I have a weird little problem. I cannot figure out how to set the car's charging start time at home to take advantage of lower electricity rates. There seems to be an option to set a start time but it's dimmed out. YouTube is of no help, neither is the owner manual. What am I doing wrong?

    Volume production to enable expansion, market share possibilities shrinking, financial viability over the next few years, excess vulnerability to production disasters/bad PR from things that go south. And so on.
