    Supercharger - Needles, CA - E. Broadway St. (permit filed 26 May 2022)

    Methinks the spelling of these superchargers is wrong...

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

    What I find interesting is that all the press I can find online concerning the event completely misses the features of the factory -- 4680, building many of the sub-components on site, etc., basically all the stuff from the tour. They only focus on the few tidbits from his presentation -- and...

    Launching 4900 lb boat with 1200 lb trailer with MXP

    Launching shouldn't be a problem, as long as you don't jerk the trailer around -- as you said, slowly and carefully! Pulling the boat out may be more of an issue, since you'll have to climb the ramp, and there may be additional weight from any water in the hull. I suspect you'll be well within...

    Tesla BEV Competition Developments

    Funny, I was just thinking this as I opened the thread.

    Supercharger - Glendive, MT

    Stopped here on the return trip and all is good again.

    Supercharger - Glendive, MT

    Glendive is down - all stations would not charge my car, and someone else reported the same results. Called Tesla and they diagnosed a problem with the car, but I was able to charge with no problems in Dickinson when I finally got there.

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

    Sorry about the link, but that's what showed up with a Google search. In any case, according to Tesla (Emergency Response Guide) the model S does contain ultra high-strength steel in key areas.

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

    This is not true. The Model S (and Model X) have sections of high-strength and ultra high-strength steel in the b-pillars and top cross members as shown below: You can see this steel in the after photos of the burned shell. The steel is what's left behind.

    Cyber Lndr (Camper for Cybertruck)

    1200 lbs dry, 1360 lbs wet (40 gal fresh, 20 gal gray). They talk about a dolly being developed to remove/install it into the truck -- no details other than that. Nothing about securing it to the bed yet. I assume it plugs into the outlet shown at the Cybertruck reveal and therefore could be...

    Supercharger - Copperopolis, CA (LIVE 31 Mar 2021, 12 V3 stalls)

    The photo is of the back of the building, so the coordinates on Supercharge.info should be correct.

    AutoSock 698 Trial Fit

    Why on the rear wheels? Seems fronts would be better for braking, steering and acceleration.

    Missing count of remaining posts (with link to next page)

    Thanks for all the work to get this update installed and running. One feature from the old version that appears to be missing (and was something I used a lot) was the link in the lower right of each page that showed the remaining posts in a thread and the link took you to the next page. I...

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

    I've never understood these comments that the interior of "luxury ICE brands" are much better than Tesla. I've owned and ridden in many "luxury ICE brands" and am not impressed (compared to Tesla).

    Yeah, both driver side and passenger side. Service center replaced both.

    Check this out: https://twitter.com/VGrinshpun/status/1302100259674390530 Looks like Consumer Reports is stooping to new lows as they falsify their reporting to make FSD look bad.

    v. 2020.32.3 - Model X Close Windows

    X and S don't currently support it. May sometime in the future (or may not).

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

    at least with the Prius, the gas motor is tuned for higher RPM performance and has very little torque at low RPMs. Therefore the electric motor is required to start moving the car from a stop.

    How hard should I have to torque the steering wheel to keep autopilot engaged?

    no, I found that picture on the internet. What I do is a mirror on that image - my left hand on the left side. But it could be either one, just whichever works best for you.
  23. Phil Seastrand

    How hard should I have to torque the steering wheel to keep autopilot engaged?

    I grab the wheel at about 6:30-7:00 and apply a light twist with my wrist (see below only I use my left hand). This has worked for me for many, many miles.

    Thanks for the update, pictures look really good. I'm about 10 days behind you in ordering, so I'll give them some more time.

    When to retire?

    I retired from HP at 50 when they made an early retirement offer to me and my wife (also working at HP) that we couldn't pass up. The biggest issue we faced was cash flow. I had plenty of retirement funds, but most were not available at 50 years old. You need to figure out how you will...

    TapTes Leather Seat Covers - Experience

    Dave, any update? I order my seat covers on 5/26 and haven't heard anything since the invoice. I'm getting worried.

    FWD Sensor Defect

    You should be able to see on the Quick View screen if the sensors are detecting anything. It happened with my car due to the sun heating the one side. I also had to have the top sensor replaced because it failed and wouldn't sense anything.

    Battery discharging after 2020.20.13 update

    This is happening to me as well. I'm on 2020.20.12 and I'm losing ~3% each day. Definitely didn't do this on the previous release and nothing else has changed. It has to be a bug in the firmware. I've reported it to Tesla.

    The shudder problem: Current status (end of February 2020)

    Thanks. I'll try low for awhile and keep an eye on the tires.
  30. Phil Seastrand

    The shudder problem: Current status (end of February 2020)

    As I understand it, if we set the suspension to "Low" the shudder disappears because the half-shafts are near alignment (i.e., they are close to horizontal to the wheel hubs and differential). But doing this causes the inside of the tires to wear more because of the tow-in set in the...

    The shudder problem: Current status (end of February 2020)

    He did say it's not causing any damage, but I find that hard to believe.

    Trailer Mode Won't Turn Off

    I just got back from the service center on this issue. They found a blown fuse. Concern: Customer states: The trailer mode indicator is defaulting to blue, indicating a trailer is detected even without the hitch installed. I can manually override to enable Autopilot but looking for a permanent...

    The shudder problem: Current status (end of February 2020)

    I just dropped off my Raven Model X for the shudder issue. The tech test drove it and said it wasn't that bad and they wouldn't fix it at this time. The bad news is that he said it was a problem with the design and that there would probably never be a permanent fix.

    Speed limit sign recognition

    I read somewhere that this was due to a patent issue with Mobile-Eye, but someone else said that's not the case. So, I'm not sure we really know why.

    Cannot find smart Summon (come to me)

    Make sure "Standby Mode" is enabled. Set this via Controls -> Autopilot -> Customize Summon -> Standby Mode.

    Navigation image prefers zoomed out view

    If you use pinch to zoom, the car thinks it's a temporary request and will return to the default zoom after ~30 seconds as you've described. If you want the zoom change to be "permanent", use the zoom in/zoom out touch-points on the right side of the screen.

    Trunk door sometimes unexpectedly shuts on my head!

    Or disable single key press in the settings.

    Anyone leave the tow receiver on all the time?

    The only risk is getting more dirt up inside the rear bumper through the opening. I wouldn't recommend it with bad weather. Also it will have a minor impact on your range.

    Tesla said my Model X didn't come with front heated seats

    My April 2016 Model X had heated front seats and I didn't have the Cold Weather Package.

    AP 1 what am I missing

    I believe AP3 is the common abbreviation for the version 3 hardware running the latest software.

    AP 1 what am I missing

    How so?
  46. Phil Seastrand

    AP 1 what am I missing

    The main difference is on non-highway situations. AP1 barely handled city streets or curved roads while the new AP3 does just fine in about every situation. Still some room to go but if AP1 was 10% there AP3 is 80+%. I drive easily 95% of the time in AP. And it gets better with every...

    AP 1 what am I missing

    I upgraded from a 2016 Model X to a 2019 Model X with AP3 and the difference is night and day.
