    SolarCity (SCTY)

    I follow the reasoning in your post JHM and think it makes sense, but I am curious about your reasoning regarding the discount rates used here? Thanks

    HPWC Burned Up (Yikes!)

    Maybe the toroid only sees a difference if one wire is carrying less current than the other like when there is a leak?

    The most important thing I can conclude from the picture is that the 3-armed martian looks happy and comfortable inside the X-mule

    Fascinating and intriguing power/performance figures on the TM website

    Motor Hp = The maximum amount of power the motors can output, unsure if this number is for short bursts, constant output or something in between. Hp = The maximum amount of power the battery and inverter can output, may also be software limited. Lowest number is what to go by.

    Loading a Segway into a Tesla

    Sounds like you just need a hinge and attach another smaller ramp that folds out to the inside of the car. Should fold together when transported :rolleyes:

    Model 3 won't look like other cars

    Agree, the mirai and i3 look like dog turds because they must not be able to compete on an equal level.

    The Verge:"Meet Gogoro, the outrageous electric scooter of the future".

    Tracking P85D delivery thread

    Here is what I believe has happened: Tesla missed its diffuse deadline and to keep customers as happy as possible they deliver early, with the updated software and bug fixes coming in as soon as ready. The genius, once again tried to help out the worried customers by tweeting, even knowing he...

    Melted new 14-50 adapter after one charge

    I have never seen the car side connection melt, maybe they should just make a 14-50 adapter to tesla type that stays put and have the cable be tesla type on both ends. Who ever made this type of connection should be punished, they are melting like chocolate.

    You deserve better friends Brett, I have done the same thing a few times for different reasons. Sometimes you just have to stop wasting time on people who doesn't deserve it and move on.

    Price comparison chart between countries

    Thanks for the numbers matbl. Assuming the numbers are correct, is the major difference because of the corresponding import tax+customs duty?

    Tesla Owners Work in Oil/Gas Industry

    There was one guy who posted in "what do you do for work" who said this: "All right, that question got me to register. I work for an Oil Company. I try to find MORE oil, and to get it out of the ground as cheaply and safely as possible. At the moment I'm sitting on an oil production...

    Mirrors Gone from Model X on Tesla Motors Page

    This problem has already been solved elsewhere, when glass gets too busy with water/dirt only a high speed rotating clear glass/lens works, and it works great.They just need to make one for rear view cameras where turbulence is an issue. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clear_view_screen

    Why do Li-ion Batteries die? And how to improve the situation?

    Very nice talk. To me the interesting points were cathode and anode are inherently stable just interaction with electrolyte gives degradation, higher state of charge and higher temperature were main culprits of harmful electrolyte interaction. Combinations of additives to electrolyte can give...

    Christian von Koenigsegg says something about Tesla. Translate from Swedish?

    Good find JRP3. He is super excited about his model S which he says is the best car in its class, better than the M5 and more fun. He lives in the south of Sweden and never has any range problems even with the non existing charging infrastructure, drives from his home to the factory and to...

    The Gen III car thats supposed to be $35k, 200 mile range in 2015-2017 has a queue of people waiting for it that stretches two laps around the earth. If you have a short commute there are cheaper EV-alternatives like the leaf, bmw i3, fiat 500e etc. that might work for you. Some people get good...

    CNN's Favorite Cars of 2013

    Yup, I hate it as much as anyone but you just have to keep setting the facts straight. Nothing weighs higher in my experience when someone who actually owns the car tells it like it is. “Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.”...

    Rear View Camera Doesn't Like Winter Driving in Massachusetts

    I have had this problem myself so I have thought some about this, and doing so I have seen some solutions to this. 1. Mount the camera inside the rear window, this might work if the rear window stays clean or has a wiper blade. 2. Rotating the lens or a protective screen at high speed ~1500...

    BMW i3

    I have no qualms with the i3 but two things, the pig faced chubby design and the smallish size of the battery pack. I am sure it rides pretty good but its no Tesla, just hope there is a market for this vehicle too because that will keep Bmw working on ev's.

    Wiper Blades Icing Up - Even with Subzero Package

    Are you guys sure the "wiper blade defroster" is actually heating the wipers? The reason I'm asking because I have this on my car which isn't a Tesla but it doesn't heat the wipers, instead it heats the lower part of the windscreen so that the wipers come loose in the morning if there is ice on...

    SAAB Electric vehicle - NEVS

    I always liked Fisker, nothing I would buy myself but it was a decent performer and good looking. There are about 15 other car brands id rather have seen fail before them. But to the point, I dont think Nevs will fail any time soon and the reason is that they have a different financial...

    Discussion of statistical analysis of vehicle fires as it relates to Model S

    luvb2b, others have unsuccessfully tried to explain that 3 fires are not a very dependable estimator for the mean. Sure its the best unbiased estimator we can get but the standard deviation is 1.73 fires with 10820 car-years [sqrt(np(1-p)) where p=3/10820 and n=10820] using your binomial...
