    All American Car Day

    @lonewolf313 and I braved the heat and carried the torch for the Tesla community. I took along my wife’s Model X which attracted a lot of interest. Again a real spectrum of knowledge from “what do you mean it doesn’t have an engine” to “Is this a P100D” on first approach. Top questions were...

    All American Car Day

    We are in the “Special Interest” zone this year! It won’t let me post a screen shot for some reason, but just on the left after the entry ramp.

    All American Car Day

    I’m taking the email from the President of the Mustang Owners Club confirming that we are welcome - that should ease things!

    I remember what it was like that first year and looks like this is going to be a repeat if not worse!

    All American Car Day

    I will be going along and hope a few others might join in (have put the details up on TOCA website also) I have checked with the organisers and they welcome ALL American built cars. Recommendation was to enter the show with cars between 8 and 9 or miss out on space. I was thinking of meeting...

    Supercharger - Bathurst NSW

    So something is happening in Bathurst.... This article refers to a recent council agreement for the GM of the council to sign an agreement for a charging station for 4-6 chargers on council property and asks people to guess where it is: Council in negotiations to install electric charging...

    Supercharger-Adelaide (SA)

    The white boxes are part of the supercharger - two posts run off each box. The green box looks like a switchboard rather than a transformer. If a new transformer is being installed then it would also most likely be a green box approximately 1m wide, 2m long and 1.5m high. Given the install is...

    Hi Ben, Any sign of the all important transformer to power the site?

    Tesla battery event Hornsdale

    You would only need a fraction of the full battery installation to power a pretty awesome event at night. Perhaps they will have the first section up and running?

    Dead Patch!

    I can see why they might need to do that in a 60, but the larger packs should comfortably make it there and back? Unless they are doing constant launches down the Main Street of Forster.....

    Do new Model S's and X's in New Zealand come with the web browser enabled?

    I have been in at least two cars that will play a DVD or display TV on the centre screen (visible to the driver) when stationary, but then cut out when you start moving. They were factory fitted systems not some after market add on.

    Daisy chaining of HPWCs

    So we are soon to be a 2 Tesla household and have received the second HPWC (both three phase). The manual describes the ability to daisy chain the HPWCs so that the master HPWC charges first and when it finishes sends a signal to the next one to start charging. That way you don't need to run...

    S. A. Needs Help

    About 25 years ago I visited a pumped hydro scheme in Wales called Dinorwig or "the electric mountain". It has an installed capacity of nearly 2000MW and the turbine hall was basically a cave hollowed out in the mountain. They would keep two of the turbines spinning on air when not producing...

    100D price differential??

    So Tesla are now offering 100D as a battery upgrade on the configurator under the 90D (for the X at least). Previously you could only get the 100kWh battery with the performance model. Reports from the US suggest price differential of $3k USD which should translate to approximately $4k AUD...

    Southern Highlands meet up - 15 Jan 2017

    With convoys converging from Canberra and Sydney we eventually had 41 cars attend today's event in Bowral including a P100D brought down by Kyle and Will from Tesla. That makes it the new largest gathering of Tesla's in the Southern Hemisphere. The 94 attendees had come from far and wide with...

    Destination Chargers in Australia

    I checked out the Castle Towers destination chargers at Castle Hill today (out of interest rather than need). Pretty nice set up, maybe 50m from the lifts at one end of the mall near Myer so convenient, but no so close that are asking to be ice'd everyday. Three HPWCs and marked bays. I have...

    Is this a new bug?

    Even before the latest update it used to do this on the M7 just after the Old Windsor Road turn off heading west. Have also noticed now that it has slowed for school zones for a second or two as you enter the zone and then accelerates back to non school time speed.

    I assume the upgrade was done by Tesla? Have you noticed any improvement in performance of the screen or streaming songs etc?

    Supercharger parking fee when not charging introduced.

    So how will this work at sites such as Goulburn which allow general parking for non Tesla vehicles for 30(?) minutes. It would be perverse if a recently completed supercharging Tesla got a "fine" but an ICE vehicle can park there with no consequence...

    How did your V8.0 update go?

    Haven't had an update recently but a few days ago I got a "collision imminent" red warning and beep approaching a bend in the road that had some pedestrians jogging close to the edge of the kerb. It definitely didn't flash up the picture of a car in red, it could have been the motorcycle...

    HPWC install - isolation switch?

    If it is a similar requirement here then that might explain the differnce in interpretation. All of the original HPWCs were single phase 40A max. I understand that there are now 80A single phase units available. I wonder if the threshold (if it exists in Aus) is per phase or total? The three...

    HPWC install - isolation switch?

    Not sure that I quite follow the logic for that reasoning? Only a licensed electrician should have the cover off to "service" the HPWC and what would they service anyway? If an electrician was working on any other circuit in the house wouldn't they just isolate the relevant circuit breaker...
