    Midland/Odessa + South Texas Tesla Owners

    If you have a Tesla vehicle in Midland/Odessa or South Texas and are up for some Tesla advocacy, can you ping me a private message here on TMC? This related to the Anti-Tesla Service Bill that has just been submitted. Thanks!

    Blog Tesla and Fake News

    There is a lot of discussion about fake news these days. While some may feel we now live in a “post fact” world, I don’t. If you haven’t read it, I encourage you to read NPR's Steve Inskeep’s take on the subject, A Finder's Guide To Facts. Steve offers a lot of common sense things to look for...

    Wikipedia Editors - New Tesla User Box

    I noticed today that Tesla didn't have a user box defined for fans so I made one: Wikipedia:Userboxes/Cars - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia This is basically a shortcut you can put on your user page to show your enthusiasm for Tesla. If anyone wants a Roadster, Model S, or Model X...

    Another negative piece from the WSJ, this time from Charley Grant: http://www.wsj.com/articles/teslas-stock-ignores-the-competition-1441990454 I enjoy winding up the commenters. :-)

    Columbus Texas Elevated Superchargers

    Columbus, TX. :-) Trivia answer: I'm pretty sure that the Columbus SuperCharger is the current poster child on the Tesla SuperCharger page: Columbus platform is much higher, though:

    Formula for Roadster 1.5 pricing?

    Local owner is considering selling a Roadster 1.5. Original owner, 3k miles, outside is great other than a scrape on the rear bumper. One battery sheet is bad (verified by Tesla service center) so the car charges on 110, but not 240. Owner purchased the battery replacement plan, though...

    Passenger Door Slight Vibration

    Not a problem, but I have a question about what this could be. I was at a car event and a guy got in my car who says he tests turbines for a living. Putting his hand on the turbine is one way he can tell if there are issues. Even before he sat down, he put his hand on the open passenger side...

    WANT TO BUY: Large Display Batteries from Marketing Booth

    I would like to purchase some large fake display batteries in inflatable or cardboard form, although metal would also be fine. These 'batteries' would likely have supported a marketing booth for a consumer battery company. Ideally the size would be 4' or so long and easily mountable to a Model...

    The Touch Screen Others Can't Touch

    I got the LEXUS PURSUIT email blast tonight, and I thought the following was quite funny: Title: The Touch Screen Others Can't Touch As if the LF-CC coupe concept wasn't revolutionary enough, Lexus has introduced a dramatic new approach to display-screen technology, as well as the manner in...

    First Road Trip - Houston to Austin and back

    I took my first Model S road trip this Thanksgiving, and I thought I would provide a few comments and suggestions. 1) Houston to Austin is about the perfect distance with the 85 kWh pack. You can drive fairly normally, arrive with some miles to spare, charge overnight, and easily make it home...

    Delorean EV and Hovercraft

    Elon hates when Tesla is compared with Delorean. We assumed it was for the obvious reasons, but maybe he's running scared of the rebirth? First they come out with an EV version. $95k-$100k before tax credit, a bit less range and performance, sure, but it has something the Model S doesn't: a...

    Model S Headlight and Tail Light 'beat' frequencies?

    I took some video of a Model S today at the Houston event, and in watching it when I got home, I realized something about how the lights work (headlights and tail lights, at least the borders). They are not just on or off--they constantly paint just like a TV screen. 1) Is this true of all...

    Get Amped Tour: Houston, TX August 11 – 12

    Since I did my test drive in Mahwah, I didn't get invited to my local Houston event. Anyone want to let me ride along in the back seat? I'll hold a camera if you want to video your ride. :-) Interesting that the event as at the Westin--just seconds away from the Tesla Store (and perhaps...
