    Supercharger - Tilton, NH

    Hahah, I remember those back when Iived in Boston. Frankly, in the Lakes Region, I am sure it is tempting to a lot of people.

    Supercharger - Plainview, NY (new location near ShopRite)

    No, same Country Pointe parking lot, just the other side by Chase/Shop-Rite.

    Supercharger - Plainview, NY (new location near ShopRite)

    That would be great as the other location is always packed and in a rather narrow parking lot.

    Supercharger - Tilton, NH

    Thanks. I'll be up Memorial Day weekend.

    Supercharger - Tilton, NH

    Any update on the site? Has it been up and running?

    Supercharger - Charlton, MA (I-90 westbound service plaza)

    This will be a game changer!

    Model Y Service Bulletins

    VIN 32XXX You have to remember these cars are from California. I find that outside of winter, until 74 deg F the car (even our old Model 3) will blow coldish air. If you want to be warmer, go 74+ and then dial it back.

    Model Y Service Bulletins

    I got our super manifold and sensor replaced finally. Again, I never had a problem with the heat, so yeah.

    As far as we know, Track mode is still coming to the MY?

    SUVs usually aren't allowed to race on tracks, so it wouldn't make much sense. That being said, I want access to the manual torque distribution settings.

    Old School Model Y nomenclature

    Yes. LR AWD = 75D and Performance = P75D

    Winter handling Subaru vs dual-motor model Y

    Agreed. I have never used Chill Mode. I just adjust the amount of pressure on the throttle and reduce steering inputs in low traction situations. Slip Start is for starting off in deep snow, if normal mode doesn't work. ORM is for doing silly things. I would like Track Mode to manually...

    Model Y Service Bulletins

    It must have been VIN related bc they mentioned it as soon as I got out of the car. My VIN is 32XXX built in July 2020.
  14. Snow Drift

    Model Y Service Bulletins

    Yes. I went in for my tires to be swapped. They said, you have a bulletin due for the HP sensor, do you have time for us to fix it? Sure. I didn't even know this was a thing, I haven't looked at this thread and only knew of people in Canada having issues. My heat pump works fine, granted it...

    Model Y Service Bulletins

    Related to the Heat Pump. I have to go back, they need a part that isn't in stock.
  16. Snow Drift

    Is there any safety reason NOT to drive with an empty passenger seat buckled up?

    Are you saying the rattle stops when it’s plugged in? I find that if the belt is twisted the buckle gets stuck between the seat and pillar. This twisting happens every time my wife gets out of the car. Just untwist the buckle and it should stop. You can also check the position of the passenger...

    Model Y Service Bulletins

    I’m at Tesla now to get my winter tires taken off and they are performing the TSB. I don’t have any issue with my heat pump etc. I’ll let you know more when I get the invoice work description.

    Poll: Official Tesla Motors Club (TMC) T-Shirt. Which version would you want?

    Let me try one more time, the top bar is similar to the front grille of the S/X?

    So, unless this statement is just for legal reasons.... what is it?

    Added EA in Riverhead, EVNY in Shirley, and updated EVNY in Copiague or Bridgehampton.

    Poll: Official Tesla Motors Club (TMC) T-Shirt. Which version would you want?

    I will assume this is a joke? The logo is TMC with the Tesla arc/point in their dagger (really a cross section of an electric motor).
  22. Snow Drift

    Poll: Official Tesla Motors Club (TMC) T-Shirt. Which version would you want?

    Lol, it's the Tesla logo widened to show T M C.
  23. Snow Drift

    Poll: Official Tesla Motors Club (TMC) T-Shirt. Which version would you want?

    Looks good overall. Member could be removed, as no one would wear the shirt w/o being a member (unless you mean paid membership). I always thought the TMC logo could be better.

    Winter handling Subaru vs dual-motor model Y

    I have used ORM and I notice that the throttle is greatly reduced, requiring you to go deeper into the pedal than normal (they did this for rock crawling to reduce wheel spin). It definitely changes things.
  25. Snow Drift

    Supercharger: Plainview, NY (Long Island)

    Well, a few things. 1) It's one of the oldest and most known location in operation. So it has always been very popular, so everyone in Nassau knows about it. 2) It is the closest supercharger for the north shore of Nassau. They use their free charging credits. I used to go a lot (but I paid)...

    VW ID4

    So I took a Blue ID.4 1st edition (RWD) out today. First, the fit/finish is very nice, as expected. The new interior is light, solid and comfortable. I don't know if it was due to the white color but the steering wheel seemed HUGE like on a big boat lol. The haptic buttons on the wheel give a...

    Audi E-tron 55 sportback

    So I took a Blue ID.4 1st edition (RWD) out today. D mode drove fine, like any automatic allowing coasting and creeping, and always requiring the brake pedal to induce regen slowing/friction brakes. B mode, my preference, provided some regenerative braking torque by just reducing pressure on...

    Audi E-tron 55 sportback

    I don't want the car to coast. I can make it stay at a constant speed with my foot. If I am not accelerating or keeping the accelerator at a steady point, then I am trying to slow the car. OPD allows the perfect situation where reducing throttle input engages regen to slow the car. It is...

    Audi E-tron 55 sportback

    Sounds horrible. Paddles, drivetrain modes and a brake pedal, plus thinking about when to use it...vs...modulate your right foot. I prefer a manual transmission or Tesla's method for an automatic.
  30. Snow Drift

    Audi E-tron 55 sportback

    This sounds like my PHEV. Lift off the accelerator and you coast. Press the brake pedal and it blends regen and friction brakes. I hate it. Coasting feels like a run-away train, very unsafe to not have immediate braking, and using two pedals is annoying. One-pedal driving is the best part...

    Supercharger - Manorville NY

    I still hope Manorville and Shirley are two different locations. After all these years you deserve Manorville!

    Winter handling Subaru vs dual-motor model Y

    Slip Start is for one moment in time. As in, you are stuck when parked in deep mud/snow and just need to free yourself. SS will reduce the intervention of the traction control, and prevents power reduction, so that the wheels slip to gain traction (sometimes grit is needed, not control). This...

    Winter handling Subaru vs dual-motor model Y

    Not that I have found. Some roller tests exist and the fronts get more torque sooner. Well, your GC is mostly just reducing throttle input, maybe more torque to the secondary axle, and preventing the traction control nannies from kicking in sooner. That exists on the MY with Off Road Mode and...

    Winter handling Subaru vs dual-motor model Y

    Check out Bjorn on YouTube. He has "Scan My Tesla" and that allows him to see real time data. While driving around a Model 3 his front motor is off, while an S/X the rear is off. Permanent magnet motors stay on while the smaller axle motor sleeps. Front 0, Rear has power/ torque

    Winter handling Subaru vs dual-motor model Y

    Two things. 1) 50:50 is a lot more rear power than most FWD-biased systems will ever actually transfer rearward. So for those people they have a completely different experience than 50:50, 40:60, etc. 2) When your Crosstrek 6MT makes a left or right hand turn in snow, you can feel the rear...

    Wipers don't work properly in Auto

    Sometimes they go crazy and wipe excessively, but usually once you get driving it calms down. Try to single wipe with the button on the left stalk to get it out of crazy mode. If there is mist it might not do anything bc the cameras can see fine. Again, single wipe. I very rarely change to...

    Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3

    Considering your experience with Wintersport tires, which are performance winter tires (I've used the SP Wintersport M3 on a WRX), I am surprised you would compromise your dry days with R3s. I always considered them to be overkill for most snow conditions. I have used: Dunlop SP Wintersport...

    Selling a car through Vroom, Carvana, or Carmax

    Sold our Model 3 to Carvana. It was very easy and they offered more than Tesla to trade in for our Model Y.

    Not a bad idea. That left is always risky/takes forever. I grew up going to the Lake every year. We have family in Laconia.

    Supercharger - Tilton, NH

    It’s not a rest stop. You get off the highway and go a short distance to it. It’s easy to get to, but very annoying to leave if you want to go back to I-93 or aren’t going toward Laconia.

    Michelin will making EV specific tire for the U.S.

    It's a summer tire. They have been developing this tire for Formula E, so this is the road car version. Can't wait see it vs PS4S.

    Winter handling Subaru vs dual-motor model Y

    Snow Mode really just reduces throttle mapping and tells the systems to allow more slip and pre-lock/press the transfer case's clutch-plates. Off Road mode does all of that already (except transfer case stuff since we don't need one).

    Winter handling Subaru vs dual-motor model Y

    You have a very specific scenario that the average person doesn't deal with. I have zero issues with driving on snow covered roads, but they aren't to the same degree that yours are. Subaru makes a very good system (I have/had many), and frankly you have the least capable of them all (Active...

    Winter handling Subaru vs dual-motor model Y

    EDIT: I understand that a rear biased, rear dominant, layout, especially one with wayyy more torque at all times is new experience for most and may not feel ok in snow. Just give it time and you may adjust your driving and become accustomed to it. I feel like the people who are having the...
