    Alternative Model Y Bike Rack: Tow Tuff Aluminum Cargo Carrier

    The spec'd accessory weight limit is 160lbs. Apparently the way the hitch is mounted limits it's torque capacity far below the tongue weight limit.

    Alternative Model Y Bike Rack: Tow Tuff Aluminum Cargo Carrier

    I hear great things about the 1Up, but it's only practical for up to 3 bikes on the Model Y due to its weight.

    Off topic galore

    It's good to see how well the Ford does once they ignore the nav and only use EA chargers. Reenforces my conclusion that the EV to recommend to those who refuse or won't afford to buy Tesla is the Mach-E.

    Best 4 Bike Rack

    The model y hitch is only rated to 160lbs accessory weight. 4 bikes on a 110 lb rack will far exceed that. Are you comfortable with that? (I have approximately zero overall tow hitch experience, so don't feel comfortable exceeding the rating by much if at all)

    Alternative Model Y Bike Rack: Tow Tuff Aluminum Cargo Carrier

    We had at least 1" at all the superchargers, so might be fine in the 3 - just can't promise :)

    Alternative Model Y Bike Rack: Tow Tuff Aluminum Cargo Carrier

    I suspect that on the 3 you might not clear the curb at some superchargers to back in. Not sure how the mounting height will compare.

    Alternative Model Y Bike Rack: Tow Tuff Aluminum Cargo Carrier

    After a ton of research and thinking, I purchased the Tow Tuff Aluminum Cargo Carrier with Bike Rack ( https://smile.amazon.com/Tow-Tuff-TTF-2762ACBR-Aluminum-Carrier/dp/B00PXNC7K0 ). Reasons for my purchase: * Light for a tray rack (48lbs vs 42lbs Hollywood, 82lbs Kuat) * Short for a 4-bike...

    Just got back from a 1000 mile road trip in the Model Y 7 seater, with 2 adult and 2 kid bikes on this rack: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B00PXNC7K0/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_fabc_NR09V1K73FWA7M60X9KV We were able to back in to every supercharger with a few inches to spare. Only trailers or bigger...

    I love Elon, but think these calls will be overall improved by his absence. Drew and Zach are much better communicators. I'll miss the vision stuff he contributes is all.

    Radar deleted on all new Model Y and Model 3. Is FSD worth it?

    No radar units available. It was either ship fewer cars to customers, hurting both the company and the customers who want the cars, or push forward at Tesla speed and let the certification and 100% feature parity come later.

    Radar deleted on all new Model Y and Model 3. Is FSD worth it?

    It seems like the timing of radar removal was accelerated uncomfortably to avoid shutting down production for lack of parts. That said, it was also clear that they were going to do it eventually. I expect the end result to be a better system than with radar, even if it takes a few weeks or months.

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

    The whole point of buying the BTC was to hold it as a long term hedge against inflation. They means potentially opportunistically buying or selling small amounts to manage that hedge, but not trading or selling for short term profits. Master of Coin would be delinquent in his duties if he sold...

    Hopefully they will intelligently buy the dip. Master of Coin is a cool character, and knows not to sell low.

    Kuat bike rack video for the Model Y

    This is the incorrect interpretation. The tongue weight is for force applied by a trailer with its own wheels causing the tongue force to press vertically down on the ball. A bike rack or other accessory will produce a torque, rotating around the hitch attachment point under the vehicle instead...

    Let's not forget that for space limited installs (my future) the 2-5% efficiency improvement in battery round trip might make the difference between being energy self sufficient in winter and not.

    Weekly TD 9 buy at $597 was hit today. Daily TD 9 buy will hit tomorrow unless we gap up first. Agreed bottom is forming.

    TSLA Technical Analysis

    I'm seeing a bull flag that predicts a break to the upside in the next couple of trading days. Unfortunately, that coincides with a daily TD Sequential 9 sell, so not trading it myself. If I was forced to make a trade, I'd be buying, but that's just the default on TSLA ;)

    It wouldn't be just regen braking, but powered deceleration using the electric motors. This will require at least 3 motors and/or adjustable limited slip differential(s) though. Current torque vectoring uses the friction brakes IIUC.

    Ordered launch day (3/14/19), picked up today. Beautiful car! Only flaws I found are a crease in the fabric on the a pillar and some minor scuffs on the charge port door. Picked up in Lynnwood, WA.

    TSLA Technical Analysis

    4 hour TD Sequential 9 buy at open tomorrow. Likely gives us at least a 1-4 candle correction to the upside. Maybe a firm reversal. If we don't reverse here, daily TD 9 buy could hit Friday in the $500 region.

    I bet they posted the SR Y to soak up some excess BIW/GA capacity that they didn't have cells for. They have now likely matched cell production to assembly, and can produce the best margin-desirability variant exclusively again. Tesla is a lean logistics optimizing machine now.

    Same car, but 19"s. Same state. Ordered at unveiling. No VIN either. Hopefully MSM 7-seaters get to WA soon!

    There is no per transaction energy cost. Bitcoin security through mining secures all past transactions and maintains the existence of the network. It would be the same whether any transactions were done or not.

    You literally don't understand energy transmission costs.

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

    For those concerned about Bitcoin energy usage, bear in mind: Bitcoin mining treats all energy at fungible. It will use whatever energy is cheapest, so it is up to the rest of us to ensure that the cheapest energy is clean. In many cases the cheapest energy is energy that would otherwise be...

    As someone whose invested net worth is split between $TSLA and $BTC ... I'm glad Elon finally started doing the smart thing. Can't hold so much worthless fiat on the balance sheet. Too risky, need more Bitcoin.

    SBLOC: extra cash by borrowing against assets

    You don't have to deplete the asset in an asset depletion loan. They calculate the qualification based on the assumption that you will.

    Batch manufacturing. It is slightly frustrating, but at the same time it's the only thing that makes sense for Tesla to do.
