    Driving / Auto Pilot with hatch open?

    Hey guys, Did a search, looks like you can drive with the hatch open... my question is, will it try to drive me insane with beeps? Can I use Auto Pilot? With the hatch damage from being lightly rear ended, I am afraid that either I will not be able to get the hatch to shut after opening, or...

    I wish I had a 3D printer...

    I would make my own air ducts to go around my Hansshow display. At the end of the ducts you could design it to accept the adjustable louvers from a conventional automotive AC system so you could once again direct the air flow where you wanted it. Keith

    Mountain Pass Performance skid plate sound deadening.

    Hey guys, Did the installation of my Mountain Pass Performance front skid plate a couple days ago and figured I would post up the pictures. I drove the front of the car up onto heavy duty ramps, and made sure the car was not only in park, but had the parking brake set. Removing the plastic...

    One year ownership update.

    Well guys, one year has come and gone in what seems like the blink of an eye! I just wish I had driven an extra 405.25 miles :) Odometer reading at the one year point was 24594.75, would have been nice to make an even 25K. I do lots of road trips as you may be able to tell from the mileage :)...

    And I thought transporting a set of mounted and balanced tires sucked!

    When I purchased my 19" Gemini's, and when I sold my 21" Uberturbine's I thought it was a pain in the ass to fit them into the car without scuffing up the headliner... that ain't got nothin on trying to transport 4 loose tires, 4 wheels in their boxes, a set of TPMS sensors, and the center cap /...

    Amusing picture today.

    I noticed as I drove up to a job skill test today (POSS B / MASS IC) that my car showed a car in front of me on the screen... the building I was parked in front of has mirrored windows, and the car is seeing itself in front of itself :) Later, Keith

    Why is the model Y the red headed step child of Tesla?

    Looks to me like the Model Y out sold the model 3 for 2021 so riddle me this batman: Why don't we have track mode for the MYP? and (much more important) Why don't we have a 1:18 scale die cast model? You can get models of Teslas that don't even exist (Roadster, Semi) but no die cast model of...

    Latest updates and range loss?

    I was just looking at my usable battery capacity on scan my Tesla (I note the capacity every 1000 miles) and I noticed that the day after I updated to 2022.12.3.1 my usable battery capacity did a large step change down from 75.9 kWh to 71.3 kWh (loss of around 14 miles of range on Teslafi...

    Does slip start or off road assist have any effect on acceleration times?

    The title pretty much says it all. I have done some dragy testing of my MYP with the stock 21's and then with some Gemini wheels, but I never tried slip start or off road assist when doing my testing... Thanks, Keith

    Anyone interested in Temp vs energy consumption charts?

    I just went to the trouble of compiling my daily commute data from the first 6 months of owning the car. I used Teslafi data and then edited out anomalous data (different average speed than normal). If you use teslafi, it gives a nice "temp vs efficiency" chart, but that is not controlled for...

    Teslafi question, weather data?

    Hey guys, I have noticed that for a road trip I did, when I look at the trip summery for every driving portion it includes all the regular information (distance driven, kWh used, speed, cost etc.) and in addition it actually has the weather data (clear/cloudy, wind speed, and temperature)...

    Tires: "Street/Sport Truck Summer" SUV tires vs "Max Performance Summer" passenger car tires.

    Hey guys, In my chosen tire size with proper load rating I have a choice between "normal" passenger car tires or "SUV" tires. In passenger car tires under "performance" you have SEVEN different categorizations, Extreme Performance summer, Max Performance Summer, Ultra High Performance...

    Camp site charging, unless sleeping in the car L1 is just fine.

    Hey guys, Just been camping with my wife for the second time. First time was "car camping" using an EXPED mattress in the back of the MYP and camp mode climate control all night with a 50 amp 240V hookup at the campgrounds for one overnight, we were able to drive home non-stop from that trip...

    TOU charging always finishes an hour early...

    Hey guys, I set up TOU charging schedule at work, so the battery will be warm when I leave to go home... but it seems to pretty consistently finish around an hour before I told it too, giving the battery an hour to sit idle cooling off in the winter temperatures the whole time. Do I need to...

    3D printed "thing" that came with Hansshow dashboard mounted touch screen display.

    Hey guys, This thing came with my Hansshow dashboard mounted touch screen. It is 3D printed and has holes in it. To be honest it looks like it is supposed to be an air diffuser to mitigate the air blockage caused by the screen location... but it was not mentioned in the instructions and is...

    automatic precondition vs defrost mode...

    Hey guys, I have scheduled preconditioning to get my cabin up to temperature before driving. Normally when temperatures are "moderate" (30F to 40F) it seems like it only takes a few min for the car to heat up to my normal cabin temperature, so I am thinking that it will still get to the right...

    Purpose of holiday update?

    Most people think of it as getting access to this years light show for the holidays... I think of it as getting almost everyone "on the same page" once a year. Half the time I am a month behind everyone else with the new cool features, but once a year we all will be talking about the same...

    Switched 12V in the funk?

    Hey guys, Every search I have run comes up with the 12V that used to be a switched 12V but is now a constant on 12V. It changed over due to a software update to prevent fooling the frunk into opening with the "jumper" system unless the 12V battery is dead... what switched 12V source do people...

    Arkansas veteran plates.

    Hey guys, On a whim I decided to go ahead and get veteran plates for my Tesla MYP and Chevy Bolt... doing so saved me $400!!! In Arkansas we have to pay an extra $200 each year to register an electric vehicle, since we are "getting away with" not paying around $80 in gas tax each year (based...

    Auto door unlock question.

    Hey guys, I know that the auto door unlock based on the phone or key fob works almost 100% of the time for me, but I need to know how it actually functions for an accessory I am thinking of purchasing. Does the auto unlock work by unlocking the doors as soon as it detects the phone / key fob...

    Using speed limit mode to get around TACC flaws.

    Wonderful discovery this week! When driving at night the current software is nowhere near as good as the software that the car had when I got it from the factory, and thinks about half of the cars on the road in the oncoming lane are actually homicidal maniacs in my lane. My normal work around...

    Questions about Unplugged Performance vs Mountain Pass Performance suspension and installation.

    Uberturbine vs Gemini with aero covers efficiency in medium speed commute.

    Hey guys, Just looking through some TeslaFi data and thought others may be interested. My daily commute is a hair over 26 miles each way, with a peak speed of 60 mph and average speed of 50 mph, so this is not a comparison of highway speed efficiency, it is significantly slower than highway...

    I can't wait for the next update! Phantom braking is driving me nuts.

    Before my last update (2021.4.21.3) phantom braking was rare, a mild annoyance more than anything if I was driving alone, a major annoyance if my wife was in the car. Now, in broad daylight it is as hesitant as an 8 year old trying to drive while sitting on phone books to see over the dash, and...

    1st leg (1000+ miles) of 3056 mile vacation road trip in our MYP.

    1st section of trip: My first day of driving was planned out with ABRP (A Better Route Planner) using 5% battery degradation because that is about what I have in my Bolt and I didn’t think to use a different number for the MYP. Since my actual battery degradation is -8% at this point this...

    I am seriously considering a light weight 18" wheel and tire package for my MYP. First off, anyone know where the MYP gets it's speedometer reading from? The Front and rear tires are different diameters, and it makes a difference in which diameter I need to match :) I suspect it is the...
