    How is your rear camera after MCU1 to MCU2 upgade (dark?)

    Legal and regulatory avenues are available.

    How is your rear camera after MCU1 to MCU2 upgade (dark?)

    Don't do any of this. Plug in a USB and take a sentry mode/dashcam capture. Playback the video files on a computer, observe clearly it's recording garbage from the rear camera only, side/front and just fine.

    How is your rear camera after MCU1 to MCU2 upgade (dark?)

    No. The camera/software are experiencing what's known as "black crush". This means video levels below a certain level go to full black, i.e. if it was working right 10% video input would show 10% video level on the screen, but just to make up numbers let's say any signal lower than 20% is shown...

    How is your rear camera after MCU1 to MCU2 upgade (dark?)

    Has anyone filed an NHSTA complaint? My car does this too, and it's not an upgrade. Service already replaced the rear camera 2 months after I picked it up, didn't make a bit of different.

    Why does Tesla use a Resistance Heater instead of Heat Pump

    The deja vu.... Is so strong.... If heat is enough, why do you bother showering? Just use a hair dryer to clean yourself. It's heated. After 15 minutes of driving down the highway the day after a snowstorm. Salty liquid covering the highway.

    Why does Tesla use a Resistance Heater instead of Heat Pump

    Second thoughts on this. This behavior is probably on purpose. Just like removing the "low" regen setting, I believe this behavior allows Tesla to increase the claimed/tested range of the car. Therefore the behavior will likely remain.

    Elon ducking behind bogus "regulation" for $10K Level 5 bet this year

    I'd settle for vanilla cruise control working in all weather conditions. Spoiler: it doesn't. Salty water disables the radar, makes the sonar false positive, and blocks all the camera's.

    Why does Tesla use a Resistance Heater instead of Heat Pump

    Just highlighting the lack of experience and testing by "the desert people". In any case, can be fixed by software update when they realize what's wrong. But I've been hoping for that for the black-crushed video from the backup camera for 2 years. :( Just wondering how long it's going to take...

    SpaceX investor's thread

    I've never heard that definition. So if you have 5 million in bonds and cash that doesn't qualify? Doesn't seem to match the SEC's definition.

    Do you have shudder on hard acceleration? AKA death rattle?

    Well, I half expected the "problem" to be fixed in my new Model S, which it clearly isn't. Actually comfort mode in the suspension makes it worse, since there's more front-end lift under even mild acceleration. A problem in itself which without hardware changes could be compensated for in...

    Does anyone know if they solved this problem for Model 3 and Y?

    Home made jack pad for Model S

    Yeah the amount of tension and shear force placed on those ugly welds is scary - clicking through the video discovered they've ALREADY been redesigned. No kidding huh? Why we're on the topic - I cringe at the the 3d printed parts and wood in this thread surviving any shear force, should it...

    I think I figured out why Model S browser MCU1 will never work

    1. Doesn't support split screen to leave a web app running while doing other things. 2. Actually kills the page when you switch away now, so when you switch back to it requires you to allow location access/etc again. 3. Lately, it hasn't even been loading some pages. No status, no error, URL bar...

    Used to work for me in MCU1. Now after V9, even on MCU2, it's more useless than it's ever been. Not missing much there.

    Michael Moore vs. Renewable Energy

    Luckily wind and solar are being driven my economics now, not movements. There's only so much damage he can do. Possibly mostly at policy level.

    It's pretty much all lies. From insinuations to simply incorrect facts. This is something I expect to air on Fox News.

    Do you have shudder on hard acceleration? AKA death rattle?

    Yes, my Raven had this problem from 5 miles, and I've been super careful to not accelerate hard at large steering angles or without the car in low. They replaced the half shafts once already. Tried Cheetah mode last week, and it's doing it again. I've also lowered 10mm to try and fix the half...

    Why does Tesla use a Resistance Heater instead of Heat Pump

    Eh, they are really slow to update Model S/X now days, Raven motor aside. Things in various of stagnation/decontenting/etc For example: -Model S is still using an external coolant heater instead of it's inverters even though it has the new PM front motor. At this point, Model 3 is basically...

    Well it debunks several hundred posts in this thread about how impossible it is. Vindication is nice. It's also in the parts guide, see #2: https://i.imgur.com/J6eWzne.png

    2020.8.1 Another useless update for most of us

    I got the regen update in my early raven. No perceptible difference while driving while the battery was temperature limited to ~23kWh of charging @~14C. Note that this cold temperature limitation was and still is much more severe than my old 2015 90 pack. Displayed range was not modified during...

    Model S Long Range Plus - 390 miles (Model X upgraded, too)

    It's not even clear if the update will make the car go further, or simply update the EPA range to count more miles for the same consumption. This has happened in the past.

    Model S Long Range Plus - 390 miles (Model X upgraded, too)

    Weather is not a factor on those tables. Note that those tables say that LR gets only 17 more miles than a 100D. Also just checked ABRP, it says LR is 13.3% more efficient than 100D, which using teslike's data for 100D places the LR at 361 miles of range, versus the 336 teslike lists. So I now...

    Model S Long Range Plus - 390 miles (Model X upgraded, too)

    Their data is clearly wrong. Very very wrong. I went from a P90D to Performance both with 19" wheels, the situation is quite the opposite to what they show. I don't know how they came up with this stuff.

    Matt hates Tesla, loves Porsche. Pretty much the definition of confirmation bias.

    Taycan Takedown

    Driving "hard" has never been effective at reducing range in Model S on public roads. No matter what your right foot makes the trip meter do in the short term, the overall consumption is dominated by average air speed and temperature, followed by road conditions and elevation changes. I learned...

    2019.40.1.1

    Occasional inaccuracies are assumed, you can get that with reflections and weak signal, I've seen that before. But this was basically offset an exact amount in one direction, and didn't fix itself over the course of a 30 mile drive over 45 minutes, including a reboot. This is just broken. It...

    2019.40.1.1

    Ok, I experienced the GPS offset problem. This release is a complete stinker. Probably the worst in terms of total regressions in more than 4 years of Tesla ownership. GPS position was offset by approximately 150 feet. Homelink didn't work, got on the highway, and nav keeps rerouting because it...

    2019.40.1.1

    I would bet money that's exactly what happened. Identical thought process for 8 camera's on the car to provide FSD. Hey it dried off the water, looks good to me. Ship another 700,000 cars claiming they can do "FSD". Where that doesn't include anywhere that has winter. Dirty briney deposits...

    2019.40.1.1

    Yeah I get that problem in tunnels or on overpasses. Going from 70mph cruise to 35 mph limits. It's fantastic. Just sloppy coding, it has no idea that it can't instantaneously transport from a highway to a back road. If GPS says you're on this road, it must be true NOW.

    2019.40.1.1

    LOL. I just try and imagine all the engineers in a huddle thinking what a brilliant solution this is to not rear ending cars on the offramp. Not a single good opinion among them? 75mph at 12pm with no traffic, 1/2 mph at 4:30pm. Same f****** thing. Though, this is often my view about half-baked...

    40.1.1 DeepRain sucks. I just gave up and turned it off this morning. There's no need to have the wipers full blast while stopped at a red light for 2 minutes with a light drizzle. edit - and also let me add, at this point the system clearly has all the skill of the Jamaican boblsed team.

    Battery preheat released

    Sorry folks, this feature seems officially D.E.A.D. Starting from a cell temperature of 4.6C, it did nothing. 2019.36.x -> 2019.40.x You know where to send your complaints.

    Weaker regenerative braking with 2019.36.2.1

    Either they don't know better, or the ones who do complain are quickly admonished by the Tesla hivemind or buried under the usual gish gallop that you get around here that's led my lengthy ignore list. Had my 48A downgraded Model S for ~6 months now, and I still think it sucks. Tesla should...

    There have been people driving around for months/years without ever questioning why their ludicrous car only went into "insane" mode.

    Battery preheat released

    If your pack is really that cold, it will turn on. However, it takes a minute+ for it to both activate and to show up in the UI, so you have to re-open the app to check later.

    Weaker regenerative braking with 2019.36.2.1

    If the Model 3 adjustments were like the Model S/X, then just being in Florida doesn't solve the problem. Regen limiting starts long before it's displayed. I started feeling noticeable reduction as soon as the average ambient temperatures started falling under about 80F. This makes sense given...

    Battery preheat released

    Looks like this feature (for whatever it did before) got unreleased? Or the temperature thresholds have moved further into irrelevance? Regen limiting has been made more aggressive, now the visible indication (half yellow dashed) is up from 15C to ~19.2C average cell temperature. I see no...

    Weaker regenerative braking with 2019.36.2.1

    You're just experiencing different pack temperatures. Visible regen limiting now starts at 19.2C average cell temperature, vs 15C previously. Now around 15C, I have 20-30kW of regen capability. Additionally, preheating would actively heat the pack until 12C, and this so far even seems...

    This video is from July. My comments refer to changes in 36.2.1. What I said is directly confirmed by the release notes.
