    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    So the ADAS system treated bikes the same way normal drivers do: ran them down.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    I’ll throw my engineering guess that this. The model Y was designed for 2170s and the 4680 gives 10mm less vertical height in the pack available. Maybe bottom plate cooling just wouldn’t fit.

    I’m calling bubkus on the smaller CyberTruck.

    Overnight Fire at Gruber Motors in Arizona

    My guess is that Pete Gruber is just like a lot of early YouTubers who wear sunglasses in their videos: he’s self conscious of how he looks. This is kind of odd based on the fact that he appears to be a proud bald man (and there’s nothing wrong with being bald). I hope that Gruber Motors...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    I'm no expert, but my guess is this is for the INSIDE part of the door. The outside would still be skinned in steel or alumininium sheet. Think about it. No inserts or extra plates to beef up where the hinges are mounted. Cast on the inside, sheet on the outside. Reinforcements for...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Starting a school to train engineers for the specific needs of a company like Tesla? Not unprecedented. GM did this same thing in 1919 because there weren’t enough available with the skills GM needed to grow the company. General Motors Institute is now Kettering University. I support TITS.

    Overnight Fire at Gruber Motors in Arizona

    This is a most unfortunate event. My heart weeps for the roadsters lost. I’m glad no one was injured.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    You don’t. 😉 We all know it will not be called the Model 2. Tesla said so. I propose we start calling it the Model Q, F option is standard. This is to jab at TSLAQ. Therefore, it is the Model F Q.

    Model X arm control disconnects from wheel at low speed

    This part look under-designed and defective to me.

    Drive unit damaged after driving in heavy rain -- SC won't cover under warranty

    Didn't Tesla ban you (or otherwise retaliate against you) for this? Or was that someone else who was posting online how to get around some of Tesla's denial of various claims?
  11. Eriamjh1138

    No. I disagree. There is no reason to do that.

    Supercharger- Livonia, MI

    I live in the area and there are typically 2-6 people charging at any given time throughout the day. Find the Meijer and they are in the North east corner of the lot, as far away as can be.

    Tesla active hood deployed after driving over raised manhole cover...

    This is either a collision or a comprehensive claim.

    New 2021 Model S battery cells & packs

    Your linked article guesses that’s how Porsche does it. If there is a link to an article that describes it as an unswitched 800V pack, please post it.

    New 2021 Model S battery cells & packs

    Well, the fire of the plaid has proven my hunch incorrect. I was wrong. Now I want to know what chemistry and cooling improvement they have made to get such performance from the 19650s and when they are coming to the 2170 packs!

    Various charging adapters for on the road

    Does the Tesla Chademo adapter even work with the Y? Are there any CCS1 adapters that work reliably through Tesla SW updates?

    Delivery dates being moved / Vins being removed

    This just shows that Tesla should not be assigning VINs to deliver cars outside of local areas near the end of the quarter. ...or whatever their problem is with scheduling. I feel a little for the buyers, but other than their hopes and feelings, they haven't been harmed.
  23. Eriamjh1138

    New 2021 Model S battery cells & packs

    The warranty isn't a million miles. Never will be. I'm not so sure Tesla is going to actually use such wording for actual marketing product. It's more of an Elon-ism.

    Model S Li 12V battery

    Why make a new thread when this one exists? 6.9 Ah and it says 99Wh. The model X 12v battery is 40Ah. That 5.7x more charge! (Amp-hours is charge. Watt-hours is energy. Long story.). Tesla must be managing the lithium version a lot better than they did the lead-acid. 1P4S means 1cell in...

    Another clueless article..."How Ford Will Eat Tesla's Lunch in the Next Two Years"

    Ford is picking up a few crumbs (buyers) who probably wouldn’t buy a Tesla. The Mach E is not a threat to volume dominance of EV sales. Only Tesla can deliver in big numbers. I love Sandy’s face in that thumbnail!

    Did Elon Musk flash the white supremacy symbol on SNL on Saturday?

    I must have missed the episode where Spock flashed the “shocker”. 🖖 Makes me wonder about that Vulcan neck “pinch”. 🤏

    12v battery died while main battery was fully charged and car plugged in to charger

    I agree. Total BS and untrue. Tesla isn’t stupid about what to do when plugged in. That’s when all the diagnostics can be run and everything can be topped off. The phone advisor had no clue and needs to be retrained.

    James May’s Model S 12V battery dies…

    Oh, no! Anyway...

    It’s not the OK sign. He’s calling us all assholes.

    New 2021 Model S battery cells & packs

    I spotted this in a YouTube channel that featured a Sandy Munro presentation about battery technology. Sandy said this picture came to him “somehow”. Could this be a prototype model S Plaid battery pack of 4680s? Charged Electric Vehicles Magazine YouTube Link go to 7:35 ish.

    Unstable grid voltage can cause PW fail to function properly

    I had an unstable neutral problem at my previous house. One leg of the 240V was coming in at 200V and the other at 40V. Wondered why the kitchen light was brighter than f*ck Fried everything plugged into that half of the house. Fridge (actually, just the fan), computer, VCRs, TVs, radios...

    Advice Needed - would you request new VIN

    Damaged cars should get discounts. Request another VIN.

    Loose washers, screw, rubber cap found inside Model Y

    It is typical if a worker drops a screw,etc. into the car, to just grab another rather than waste time trying to pick up/fish out/grope for the one he dropped. Unless you see the one missing somewhere, I wouldn’t fret over trying to find its home.

    Major 2021 Model X refresh pending [Update: Unveiled January 27, 2021]

    Combining lines indicates they’re expecting permanent volume reductions until they are redesigned from scratch. The rumors of a refresh are encouraging.

    RWD LR Order?

    To be clear, I ordered the LR RWD. Also, was the SR RWD supposed to be $39,000?

    RWD LR Order?

    Well, I got the call today to complete my order for SR RWD. I sent it to voice mail. What an insult.

    Loud Regen Braking Noise (Cold Battery)

    Either way, I doubt it’s “in spec”. Take it in.

    Loud Regen Braking Noise (Cold Battery)

    Is it an electric whine or a mechanical squeal? Because an electrical regen whine makes so sense. It HAS to be mechanical.

    Tesla really needs more colors, opened the wrong trunk

    Wait until we all have Cybertrucks.

    Bottom of horn won’t honk?

    Before they could put horns on airbags, cars had horn buttons. Tiny little buttons. Sometimes they were in a good spot, sometimes not. The worst was when Ford put it in the left wiper stalk and you had to push in on the stalk.

    Major 2021 Model X refresh pending [Update: Unveiled January 27, 2021]

    My vote is no refresh. But I’ll be happy to be wrong. I feel that this is a push to get everyone who can to help with Y and 3 production and delivery. The shut down will be exactly that: a holiday shutdown.

    This is not the right time for me to buy a new Tesla

    If you’re worried about the technology making future Teslas better, lease. If you’re on the edge on price, wait for a potential, but not guaranteed, US federal EV tax credit in 2022 or later. If you don’t drive enough to enjoy it, well...

    Simple Question...How do you turn on the rear seat vents????

    No, but they’re not afraid to ask on the internet.

    Proportions... not right

    So many people posted how boring and ugly the Y was when it was revealed. So many praised the 3. I can barely tell the difference! But I like them both.

    ALL CyberTruck discussion

    CT will likely be designed to have 4680 cells. If not at first, likely designed to switch.

    Battery Day...

    Leasing vs. buying is usually a financial argument with many conditions. If you want the latest tech with the lowest hassle, leasing always wins.
