    Steering wheel

    Not really. I think you'll get used to the new steering wheel after a few weeks.

    Roadster vs Porsche GT3

    Nope, build quality is a manufacturing problem and easy to fix. The roadster won't be mass produced like the 3 or Y so I don't think there will be a lot of quality issues. The EVs are the future. Why spend your money on old technology? I rode in a 1970s VW convertible and it was loud, it...

    Remove previously charged location

    Tesla remembers the locations you have charged and puts a marker on the map when you view you the chargers. Is there a way to delete that location so it doesn't show up on the map?

    Buying Roadster Referral

    How do you sell the reward without claiming it? Per Tesla the discount isn't transferable so you have to claim it which means you buy the roadster yourself. Then you can sell the roadster. That's my understanding of it.

    Buying Roadster Referral

    This is just a warning to the referral sellers. You are going to take a tax liability for the discount on the roadster so be sure to take that into consideration when you are selling the referral.

    See Roadster in real life

    I'm so jealous. Glad you got to see it in real life. That's interesting, I wouldn't have suspected that it would be shorter than M3.

    That's great. I don't know why but seems like Californian's get to have all the fun. :cool:

    See Roadster in real life

    You'll be able to see the roadster at Petersen Automotive Museum in Las Angeles. I don't know if it's worth the 14 hour drive just to see it in real life. Maybe if I got a ride in it. How far would you drive just to see it in real life? https://www.petersen.org/tesla

    Will there be Roadsters at Cars & Coffee / car meets?

    That's what I'm planning on doing when I get my roadster. If it wasn't for covid I can even take my SR+ now and have a sign with "100% Fueled by Sun for Free". That will get people interested in Teslas alone.

    Who needs a roadster when you have model s plaid?

    Faster M3 would be nice but I would rather see roadster sooner than a faster M3.

    Tow hitch option

    I was thinking about the break lights and turn signals come on the trailer when I break. What's the brake controller used for? Is that so the breaks on a trailer would be applied when you are breaking?

    Tow hitch option

    Does the tow hitch that comes with the y have a tow hitch electric connector?

    Finally get to charge my M3 with solar

    I can't believe it but I made a big mistake. Fortunately I caught it before the vendor shipped out the inverter. The kit ordered was SMA SunnyBoy with TS4-R-F optimizer which turns out isn't really an optimizer. It's just a rapid shutdown. After spending several weeks trying to determine how to...

    Blog Musk Says He Wants the Roadster to Hover

    If I could get the roadster a year sooner I would forgo the hovering. I would rather have the roadster sooner. :-(

    Sounds system sub in LR

    I've been thinking of adding a sub. I wasn't sure how hard that would be.

    Sounds system sub in LR

    Also cranking up the volume to half way makes a big difference.
  17. MaxPowers

    Sounds system sub in LR

    I tried it with the usb and the bass is more noticeable. Also if I turn it up at least half way then the bass is more noticeable.

    Sounds system sub in LR

    I was listening to the radio. I'll try some flac and mp3 and see if that makes a difference.

    Sounds system sub in LR

    I took my SR+ in for service today and got the LR loaner so I can check out the difference between the two because I'm thinking of trading. I heard that the sound system in the LR is amazing but when I turned it on, I can barely hear the bass. It sounds the same as my SR+. I went into the...

    Current best guesses on delivery time, please.

    Do you think Elon learned to under promise and over deliver? The model Y was delivered earlier than when he said it would.

    Why would people by TSLA at $650?

    On my shares that I will hold for 20+ years I bought all of them when they were around $300 pre-split. I really couldn't get myself to by more shares of Tesla after it jumped to 800 so instead I started buying smaller EV companies like Arcimoto. Depending on what you goals are, you could give...

    Why would people by TSLA at $650?

    Question is simple. Why would anyone buy Tesla at this price? The people that made money bought the stock way back so they are not going to 5x the stock at this price. Most of these buyers are probably not long term investors otherwise the stock wouldn't have dropped after battery day. My...

    Did anyone with roadster referrals get contact by Tesla? I guess you'll have to notify Tesla that you want the Tesla by Jan. 2021. Tesla gives deadline to Roadster referral discount winners - Electrek

    I was thinking of going with red for my roadster but that orange looks amazing.

    Who needs a roadster when you have model s plaid?

    Personally I couldn't care less if people call the roadster a supercar or not. They can call it a lemon if they want, that doesn't change the fact that I'll be able to do 0-60 in 1.9 seconds or do 250+ mph if I had the balls to do it (I don't). Plus, it will destroy any $1+million hypercar.

    Tesla vs Legacy Manufacturers, Who is winning?

    Forecasts are worthless especially one that is 10 years out. If you would have asked people in 2019 what the odds are the whole world would have to wear masks to go outside, they would have all said zero to none. The reality is that no one knows what's going to happen in 2030 or even in 2025 but...

    Tesla vs Legacy Manufacturers, Who is winning?

    Well, the flu and cancer are pretty bad but if you had to choose one; one of theme is considerably better than the other.

    Tesla vs Legacy Manufacturers, Who is winning?

    Personally I wouldn't mind if all the legacy manufactures failed. They would be perfectly happy to keep making engine that exhaust toxic chemicals for the next century. The only reason why they are switching to EVs because Tesla is taking over their sales. I would rather have Tesla, Rivian...

    Finally get to charge my M3 with solar

    I just received my documents I need to get a permit from the vendor however they don't create the site map so I had to spend several hours learning how to create one. That was a nice learning experience. So far I've spent 23 hours and I haven't even ordered the panels yet. I really wasn't...

    Who needs a roadster when you have model s plaid?

    Elon twitted that the roadster will be better than the plaid. Assuming that will include the speed and acceleration. Just how much of an improvement we'll have to wait and see.

    Who needs a roadster when you have model s plaid?

    In Idaho the highway speed limit is 80. Is there any place higher than that?
  37. MaxPowers

    Who needs a roadster when you have model s plaid?

    This is a question for the roadster fans. The model s plaid will do 0-60 in less than 2 seconds. Top speed is 200 miles, let's face it most people are not going to drive near that fast anyway. Plus you'll get it sooner and it's $60k cheaper. Would you get the model s plaid or wait for the...

    Regen Less Grabby?

    Ok, I was just curious. I don't know either. :-)

    Regen Less Grabby?

    During regen, does the motor produce AC power or DC? If it's DC than it shouldn't use the inverter, right?
  40. MaxPowers

    Regen Less Grabby?

    I noticed a subtle decrease on the stopping with regen. I got used to one peddle driving and I have a pretty good idea when I need to let go of the accelerator to get my SR+ to stop at the stop sign. Recently I have to use my breaks more often because it won't stop fast enough. I haven't...

    Finally get to charge my M3 with solar

    With advice from some guys on Solar Talk I used PVWatts to calculate my PV generation on my first house. I thought that a 7.3kW system would generate 1,111kWh per month but turns out that's only for states in the south like California. Up north a 7.3kW will average out to 866kW per month. That's...

    Sound Level super loud switching between phone and radio

    On my SR+, I've had several incidents when I switch between listening to music on my phone to radio and vice versa, the sound levels gets cranked up all the way. I have an older iphone 6 This seams like a bug, has anyone else experienced this?

    I wonder how many people have cancel their reservation at this point?

    Most people are not going to line up to buy the roadster, even if you cancel you "shouldn't" have a long wait if you decide to order it later on. Is there any tracking of the roadster reservation list?
  44. MaxPowers

    Tips When Ordering a Roadster?

    I also took your advice. If I had sold my tesla stock to put down the reservation I would have missed out on it 5xing. Glad I waited. I guess I don't have bragging rights that I'm not a roadster reservation holder... oh well :-).

    Roadster Safety

    In my opinion, the safety of the roadster isn't about the safety features of the car. It's unlikely that someone will crash into you. The skill level of the driver is more important in this case. The roadster is a supercar and if you are not used to that much power than you're more likely to...

    What's up with TSLA stock? Over $2000.

    I can't figure out why tsla would jump over $2k. The stock split isn't anything special at the end of the day you are just going to get the same value before or after the split. It could be that Tesla could join the S&P 500 but that quarterly profit happened in July. Why the jump now? Any guess?

    Tesla Roadster Dreamer

    Thanks. When I first started saving for the roadster it looked like I would never be able to accomplish it. So rather than looking at the big mountain to climb, I just have to worry about the next ledge. btw, good luck on your mission. I hope you can save up for it. 42% discount on a roadster...

    Tesla Roadster Dreamer

    My status update: "I saved $377k. I can now sit back, relax and not work so hard. I'm ready to buy the Tesla Roadster 2020 right now." Well, that is what I have would have said if I had bought Tesla stocks while saving up for the roadster. Instead I bought into S&P 500 Index thinking I could...

    I'm super excited. After watching other people install solar on youtube I finally get to install solar myself. I don't know how long it will take me to install it on my house because I'm not familiar with the whole process of getting solar however I have basic idea from watching youtube. Can't...
