    Cat stuck/rescued from Tesla Model S motor

    That is me in the video, she crawled in through the rear passenger wheel well and into the motor compartment. Since we could not lure her out (only 6 weeks old) all we could do was remove the areo sheild to get her out. She is doing great (took her to the vet yesterday) and her new owner is...

    Vulnerable to crosswinds on highway? NOT!

    I have noticed a lot more sensitivity to side winds on the freeway in my Model S then my Audi A3 (the small hatchback) but I figured it was just do to the much larger Model S having more cross section for the wind to act on. How it would compare to a car of the same shape, I don't really know.

    Model S Destroyed in EV Safety Training Video

    Front License Plate Solutions

    These are actually heavy duty zip ties with UV protection for indoor and outdoor use. I would think they should hold up for a few years at least, and they are easy to change.

    Front License Plate Solutions

    As much as it pains me, I have mounted the front plate on my Model S. I really love the look without it but driving around with a reason to be pulled over at anytime just does not work for me deep in the heart of Texas ;) I went the zip tie route and came up with a way to mount the plate...

    Model S subsite and design studio being updated

    Escort Passport 9500ix issues with Model S

    Interesting. Where is your 9500ix mounted? I have mine just to the right of the mirror mount as close to the headliner as I could get it. I seem to be able to pick up GPS fine there. But I am starting to wonder if they stopped coating the window with the RF blocking film that others have...

    NEMA 14-50 Plug Orientation

    My 14-50 (which came with the house) was installed upside down. I simply shut off the cirucut, removed the front plate, unscrewed the plug mount and flipped it over. Reinstalled the mount and plate. Super easy, depending on your outlet housing (mind is a junction box in the drywall). I also...

    Model S 60kw vs Audi S4 vs etc

    I am coming from a 2006 Audi A3 with the 3.2L V6 and Haldex AWD, not quite a S4 but of the same lineage. The 60 kWh Model S blows my old A3 out of the water. No comparison. My A3 was fast and I drove it hard, but the Model S is on an entirely different plane of performance, even at the 60...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I got a surprise call on Saturday morning from the drive saying he was 45 minutes away. He dropped it off soon after (so much for "it's going to the Austin Service Center"). It is amazing. Everything I'd hoped. The 60 kWh has plenty of power and I think is a great choice. I am coming from...
