    Dragy times for Plaid and LR

    I’m old enough to remember when a production car with a 120+mph trap wasn’t available anymore because the McLaren F1 ended production. What a time to be alive

    How many will look into the F-150 Lightning?

    My Tundra is an SR5 and it’s extremely nice compared to the Ram I had before it. It’s all relative. All of these vehicles even a work truck spec in 2022 are nicer than anybody ought to complain about. But without complaining the internet would go dark and still and we can’t have that

    Model X owners - what other vehicles did you consider?

    It was for a while, they stuck the tip in with the Hyundai Genesis coupe and sedans to see how it felt and then the whole thing went in circa 2017 model year iirc

    Dragy times for Plaid and LR

    If it’s doing an 11.4 it must be hauling a lot of ass on the topend. What was the trap?

    Model X owners - what other vehicles did you consider?

    The Koreans have already spun off a luxury brand, it’s called Genesis, it happened ~5 years ago. Great value for money in the luxury space. If you see something that looks like a Bentley from far away and then you get closer it has a badge that starts with “G” followed by a number but with no...

    Model X owners - what other vehicles did you consider?

    Update: I would not have considered a Model X at current pricing and will not consider replacing ours with another Model X at current pricing. Would probably have either bought nothing or upgraded the pickup truck.

    How many will look into the F-150 Lightning?

    depends on your market. Y is aimed at literally every potential luxury crossover buyer. I have acquaintances with Y on order or already delivered who were previously shopping for just about any brand you think of and they were all cross shopping X5/Macan/Range Rover/You name it. The pricing...

    How many will look into the F-150 Lightning?

    If Cybertruck is the range and charging speed king as I expect it will be, I'll keep my order and probably replace my Tundra and X with it. Will miss the 7th seat but 6-seats and a nice wide open cab with two benches is good enough for family stuff. I'm hoping for ~150kwh of usable capacity...

    Some New Cybertruck Footage

    If it's a Model X skateboard, the front suspension is entirely new because the front knuckle on an X can't accommodate more than a 30" tire, and those look like 33's or 35's I would imagine a highway tire in the 32-3" range you normally see as a base setup on 1/2-tons would be the "range" setup...

    How to increase range on MX?

    That's not a terrible idea - a bonding plug + a Predator 4500 or something similar from harbor freight that can run a 30-amp 120v RV outlet is going to get you a lot of juice back on one tank of gas. Even one of those Honda EU2000 knock-offs can do 15 amps constant draw and get you back half a...

    How to increase range on MX?

    It’s basically the same as ours.

    How to increase range on MX?

    Btw, iX tires are a little too tall but the e-tron does use a 255/50-20 that I think could work. Maybe. Eh. We need moonies and some salt flats land speed record tires heh
  15. R

    How to increase range on MX?

    $200 at Harbor freight and you never have to pay somebody to rotate tires again. Trailer axles can also get bent and/or out of alignment. That seems like really high consumption based on what others have achieved with travel trailers unless you’re towing at 75mph or something. I assume it’s a...

    WTB: Cyberstream wheel set 20" refresh/Plaid Model X wheels in STL area

    Let me know what you have! Might also be interested in a set of Sonic Carbon slipstreams. Thanks all

    Aftermarket 20" 9.5J / 10.5J tire advice

    If it were me I'd stick with the OEM sizes in whatever tire you choose - reason being, it probably helps efficiency to have a bit of "stretch" on (This is how the Model Y is set up, 255/45-19 on a 19x9.5" wheel) I don't think the wider wheel under the same tire will make range worse - the...

    Just purchased a used 2020 Model X

    All long range pluses had all of the “options” available - with the exception of interior/exterior color, number of seats, and wheel size. And of course you could opt out of the FSD Ponzi scheme

    Caution Model X, Hidden Tire Wear

    38000 miles is great wear on ANY oem tire on ANY car jeez Even the 60,000 mile hockey pucks they put on a corolla are usually complete trash (uneven wear, hard, yada) in 40,000

    Pet Barrier for 2022 Model X?

    If you like it I'm in for one no doubt.

    Model X 2020 vs 2022 suspension

    I'm talking to the OP, not trying to be condescending here, but since he asked about swapping springs on a car that has air suspension, I'm repeating because this is important if you're asking yourself why one car feels different than another car. What tire pressures are you using? Where did...

    Model X 2020 vs 2022 suspension

    Tire pressure and tires the same?
  23. R

    Pet Barrier for 2022 Model X?

    They really need to find a fix for that. There is no domestic solution at all. I'd buy one immediately at that price point (115 pounds for the 2nd row bench version) of around $250-300 with shipping

    I have no idea how passengers in the second row will see the rear screen, let alone the third row...

    Improper tire size?

    This is exactly what I would expect to happen How will the car's computer take it into account? It's designed around the same size all around (19" snow setup), or larger tires in rear, and you've got significantly smaller tires in the back. It can only see what the sensors tell it and the...

    Who has ordered?

    Spot on at delivering which products at scale? I count two that have been sorta-close to spot-on and they're the same product with a different wrapper

    Does anyone know of the quarter mile time of the Refresh (long range) MX?

    When Car and Driver went to their current website format, it started to get really difficult to find their old performance data without digging hard for it

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Considering what a revelation in performance the 18650-based powertrain in the X/S refresh has been, I don't think "which cell" matters nearly as much as the Tesla clickbait would have us believe
  29. R

    Does anyone know of the quarter mile time of the Refresh (long range) MX?

    When did C/D test a Model X Long Range refresh? I haven't seen that road test. The link you posted is to their buyers guide page, which itself links to a test of a pre-Raven 100D. The test results they have at the bottom of that link are from a P90DL road test from like 5 years ago. Note the...

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    If I had to bet on it, I'd bet my $250 order fee on it coming at the end of they ear after they make their expected "first run" of refresh cars and burn through their inventory of old headlights that have probably been sat on the shelf waiting for the delays to resolve Me, I'm waiting for them...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    If they haven't done crash testing with the Model Y with the structural pack yet, they probably need to. That's an entirely different car from a crash performance perspective. And if crash test results were...suboptimal, they may have had to take cells out of the pack to allow for additional...

    Beware of Model X

    I agree they tried to cram 10lb into a 5lb sack with Model X. Elon's said as much in an interview. I assume some but not all of these fundamental structural problems with adding another 6500lb of combined weight rating (with trailer) into a 4500lb sedan's platform have been fixed But, like...

    Switching from a Model 3 Performance to a Model X Plaid, anyone done it?

    The Raven suspension is just sorta-ok when it comes to body control and ride. It clearly has too little travel for its lowest settings, and gets stiff-legged in its higher settings as the bladders fill up. Comfort + low over roads with a lot of undulation = 96 civic with cut springs and stock...

    Switching from a Model 3 Performance to a Model X Plaid, anyone done it?

    The limits are pretty close on the front end of an X. It’s got shockingly little front grip when you’re asking it to turn and accelerate at the same time. But low grip can be fun to manage if you’re able to tell what’s going on, and it definitely gives you plenty of feedback imo, and I’ve...

    Switching from a Model 3 Performance to a Model X Plaid, anyone done it?

    If you ask a 5200lb car on a staggered wheel/tire setup with a lot of rear grip to do things it can't do, it will tell you and if you ignore it, it will understeer off the road If you're enough of an imbecile to think a 9-second 5200lb car's factory brakes can handle more than a few hard...

    Switching from a Model 3 Performance to a Model X Plaid, anyone done it?

    My advice: slow WAY down for turns and start braking WAY earlier than you think you need to. Otherwise I think it’s a pretty fun car to drive even in my slow boring spec. We are a car person family. We have an E90M and an E63 AMG. We like V8’s and not tipping over in a corner. The X is...

    what is the true cost of owning a Tesla MX ?

    Totally on-par with my other fancy expensive cars so far, maintenance wise. It's all been warranty except tires, of course. The only difference, and it's a reasonably big one, is the whole "no oil changes" thing. Oh, and instead of rotating the tires every 15,000 miles, you just replace them...

    Wait for matrix lights? Model X Plaid being delivered within the week

    This is why the direct sales model will eventually win. People will eventually realize the product and its associated documentation speak for themselves, and RTFM.

    Passenger front seat heat icon came up when somebody sat in the front seat, I suppose thanks to reading data from the occupancy sensor. Slick.

    Wait for matrix lights? Model X Plaid being delivered within the week

    Yup. Corner illumination and illumination of the side of the road are both real, real bad, by luxury car standards, even compared to 15 year old adaptive Xenons They're on par with my Tundra's LED lights, which are not adaptive, nor expensive.
  43. R

    Wait for matrix lights? Model X Plaid being delivered within the week

    The legacy X headlights are legitimately sub-par for a modern car in its price range. I'd wait unless you need the car, unless you're able to lock in a better price thanks to your order date. I have 8 and 14 year old German cars whose headlights are better. I do hope they're retrofittable...

    2018 100D Model X vs 2021 Model Y

    Unless I was road tripping I think I'd rather have just about any trim/model of Model X than any trim/model of Model Y. Ok, maybe not a 90d or 60d. The space and ride and user interface are all worth the downsides IMO. As soon as you start road tripping the Y's charge speed and range ought to...

    Is a 7-seater with the 3rd row folded down the same as a 5-seater?

    I am 5'11" and can very comfortably sit behind myself in all three rows. Sliding the 2nd row forward doesn't make it useless or really any less comfortable. We've done 3+ hours with a car full of adults with no legroom complaints, though of course it's more sensible to put the shortest people...

    Tesla Model X noisy when braking AND the rim is turning gold colored from spindle outward. Anyone seen this before?

    Probably just cleaning the layer of surface rust off after the brakes haven't been used in a while.

    Have the new CONTICROSSCONTACT LX SPORT improved since 2017?

    The current version for sale is the T1 Tesla-specific tire, which seems to be an update to the T0 part number. The T1 tires came out sometime in early 2021 or so I now have a set of the T1 tires on my car. No idea of any empirical improvements, but they're black, round, and hold air. I...

    Anyone switching to a Rivian R1T after watching reviews?

    I have the most Texas-made truck ever made, the Tundra, and I'm not scared of the wiper, or the doors working, because I also have an X and have learned I can tolerate both of them barely working properly due to glaring design flaws Speaking of glaring design flaws, I do think cybertruck will...
