    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    I'm waiting for the 9000 kton press that spits out a 9000 ton press every 85 seconds. Maybe we could finally break back into the 200s then.

    FSD discussion

    And neither can I. When it's really blizzarding no one should be driving. In this case however all it shows is that they haven't done any training to work on this situation. The problem is far more about changes in traction than obscured vision.

    Quick report: Currently 17 degrees and 4 inches of snow on the ground. Car does not increase follow distance, reduce speed, or otherwise acknowledge the weather. It's actually even worse since it can't decide where the lanes are and turns abruptly. It also seems to want to avoid the parts of...

    I'll know tomorrow how 10.69.3.1 does in snow. None of the previous versions slowed at all.

    Have you considered your estate plan? You can set up a trust for anyone - not just relatives. Feel free to PM me if you are looking for additional trustees ;)

    Model Y Performance 21" Tires - Larger, More Comfortable Fitment Details and Experience - Michelin AS4's (With Photos)

    If you care about curb rash, consider doing it *before* you need new tires.

    Y was configured at the time you "ordered" - not a deposit. CT is a deposit s o being handled differently. Aa to your first question - a year ago I was planning on a Tri/quad/plaid but instead I'm considering (read: worried I'll need) a job that pays better than reading this thread.

    Model Y Performance 21" Tires - Larger, More Comfortable Fitment Details and Experience - Michelin AS4's (With Photos)

    I'm 5 weeks and some distance with the AS4s in 265/40 and 295/40. Still no rubbing. I think it's quieter than the pirelli p0s, in addition to having a way better ride, curb protection, appearance, and safety when it's not 90 degrees and sunny. They also let me save my snow tires for ski season...

    Well, I don't own any Baron funds, so I registered as "other." Still had the T-shirt thing though. If they announce a new X.com or Elon fund (SpaceX, Boring, Neurolink, Tesla, (nouveau-Twitter, etc) I'll move some that direction.

    If a TMC member wins that 1.5B powerball, that could kick off a nice rally (I think after going lump sum and covering taxes it's ~450M cash or ~2 million shares of TSLA) I volunteer as tribute.

    I'm ok with another period of consolidation as long as it's back at 450 or 500 during that time.

    Ok. Every time I try to edit that it gets more messy. Something weird with that reply.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Seems on topic to me. Hopefully it's to correspond with customer deliveries of Cybertruck. (Maybe a schedule for roadster? Nah) Hopefully the early deadline for shareholder 'issues' means I spend less time listing to rambling garbage during the meeting.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    After backing out the ~6% change in odometer (and therefore WH/mi) my highway range has actually improved. (Lower RR than the pirelli P0s?) City milage is a bit worse (unsprung, rotating weight?) but that's irrelevant since range only matters (to me) for road trips anyway.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Fair. I've gone through 2 full sets of tires in 37000 miles in under 2 years. I think I'll get substantially more miles out of the new upsized (265 40 21 and 295 40 21) Pilot Sport AS 4 than the sucky factory pirellis though. (Also notably better ride, wheel protectionn and appearance, imo)...

    Electric trains (out of off-topic :-) )

    True, but rather than adding tens of thousands of miles of HV power lines, would a battery car make sense? I'd think that since trains have extraordinarily low rolling resistance weight isn't really a factor like it is for cars and planes. It's just a matter of supply and willingness.

    Front Passenger Air Vent - Can you turn it off?

    Yep, my wife complains of this constantly as well.

    Hell, once they make it able to do handyman type jobs I might not mind being an out of state landlord. Once they are that far along, I don't think there will be much I mind doing though, I suppose.... 😉

    It wasn't the SOC. That was in like the 50% area. I am only assuming it was temperature related. It was a relatively cool day. Probably in the 40s at the summit and in the mid 60s at the bottom. So the pack should have been warming from the charge and from the increasing temperature but...

    Model Y Performance 21" Tires - Larger, More Comfortable Fitment Details and Experience - Michelin AS4's (With Photos)

    Thanks OP! I just replaced my pirellis (rears down to 2mm) with is exact setup. I've literally only driven home from the tire shop but both the ride and look are much improved. I only wish I'd never run those stupid pirellis - took them off the day after delivery anyway since it was December...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    If I recall correctly I used like 30% on the way up and got like 15% back on the way down. (I don't use the display in miles) Probably could have used less up and regenerated more down, but I was driving 'spiritedly'. Not a lot of passing opportunities but those few were nice. FWIW this was...

    Pikes peak highway runs from 14,000 feet down to about 7000 in just 20 miles. There is a mandatory brake check part way down. I used my brakes once - for a bighorn sheep in the road. The guy at the brake check seemed very confused that our brakes were colder than ambient (since it was colder...

    Agreed. We've had our MYP for 21 months, and put about 36k miles on it with several big road trips (several weeks at a time). In the meantime, we've put around 1200 miles on our gasser. And much of that was because the Tesla was gone on a road trip...

    If you just rest your hand on one side (let the wheel take the weight of your hand) you don't need to "dink". My hand needs something to rest on anyway. That said I look forward to attention free eventually. For years I've been saying my daughter won't ever 'need' to learn to drive. She's 7, so...

    Wow. Soooo stable in the 299.20 to 299.66 range. It's almost like there's something trying to keep it under 300.

    Random math: If we simply keep adding 1% per (trading) day for the rest of the year we'd reach 50% growth of ATH. ~630 or 1890 PS or 9450 PSS. I'll feel ok about my 1H22 options losses if we do that. 😶

    The V3 are actually thinner with the liquid cooling. There tends to be a good bit of fan noise from the cabinet when near 250kW on a hot day - but the car is doing it too. V3 were a huge engineering win - lighter and cooler cables, faster charging, no split power with other stalls, and it...

    My options in IBKR look messy. Strikes were ÷3 but quantity not ×3. Prices making no sense either way. Actual shares still unchanged. Fidelity shares and options unchanged so far.

    Ehh, I'd rather take the >10x I'm expecting by 2030 for no particular effort on my part than risk it in mining. For the planet's sake however, I wish you luck.

    Didn't we just establish that the value of the coin for its metal content stayed about the same factoring inflation? So it's better than sitting in a checking account, but compared to, say, TSLA how can we say it's a "good investment?"

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Honestly, I think a 1-3 week target would be close to ideal for Tesla, TSLA, and customers. Customer doesn't have absurd wait (if I total my car today I have to get something else soon) No grandfathering in year old prices (extra ~10k) Prices actually relate to what the market will bear (further...

    They do warn you on the day of selling that it will happen, and will credit you for deposits from accounts you've used before "instantly" "as a courtesy." *in my experience, for what it's worth. No promises and no guarantees.

    It's been true of me as a salaried employee in CA, WA, and CO. (They must pay out accrued vacation upon termination). Not true of "floating holidays" though.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Not saying it's the reason Tesla is doing it, but "unlimited" pto means there is no bank of vacation hours that must be paid upon severance. It's a fun accounting trick to reduce the expense of employee turnover.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Yea, I briefly thought 'oh no what if Musk loses control over Tesla due to a margin call'. Then I thought about how many stock price levers they have to push it up if needed. Worries abated quickly.

    Hmph. "Record profits" I wont be impressed until my teslabot is installing my tesla roof, expanding my garage and filing for all the appropriate permits while another is auto-sailoring my tesla yacht on its way to the Europa colony launch pad. Guess I'll have to wait until 2026 or so. Hurry up...
