    Embarassing: how do I delete my Sky Force Reloaded profile

    No way to reset progress, huh? My son played through and now I want to start over so I can play.

    Pre-$5K hike Model S LR reservation, best way to transfer/sell after delivery ?

    I'm in California. If I pay cash, wouldn't I have the title in hand as soon as I have the car? I'm not an expert in this arena, but I also wonder if me paying taxes on the car, then someone else paying taxes the next day when they buy it from me, would wipe out any savings.

    Pre-$5K hike Model S LR reservation, best way to transfer/sell after delivery ?

    I was wondering the same about a plaid. I have the reservation with $10k off the price and FSD for $2k off. I'm thinking about building it and selling it for my cost plus $8k. That would give someone immediate delivery (once I have it) of a fully loaded, zero-mile plaid for $4k less than if...

    Plaid+ reservation holders: what is Tesla telling you?

    I don't understand how they could keep the refundable deposit by turning it into an order for a car we didn't order.

    21” arachnid or 19” base

    My original sentence was a little ambiguous. My belief was that the majority of the difference comes from wider tires, which create more frontal area. I think the second factor is from higher rolling resistance, but the key factor there isn't width. It's more likely tread aggressiveness. That...

    21” arachnid or 19” base

    I believe it's because the tires are wider. This creates a larger frontal area (kneel down and look at your car tires from the front of the car) and higher rolling resistance.

    Lets get an official TMC Vote on the Horn Location Change

    It's a safety thing. What do most people do right before they get in an accident? Honk the horn. That puts your hand right over the airbag at the exact moment it goes off. 27% of accidents lead to the airbag breaking your wrist and smashing your hand into your own face. Elon thoughtfully...

    Fair point. If that ever happens, we're beyond the point where the horn is needed.

    My motorcycle horn is on my left handlebar. I've never had an issue finding and pressing it when needed.

    Plaid+ CANCELLED

    It only increases the value of the property if the next guy has an EV. Even if he does, he isn't going to disclose that in negotiations.

    Plaid+ CANCELLED

    It costs about $15,000 to $20,000 to have a commercial electrician install a charger 3 stories underground in my highrise parking garage.

    Plaid+ reservation holders: what is Tesla telling you?

    Did you cancel? I think I'm going to avoid their calls as long as possible. I'm guessing at some point, they'll cancel it from underneath me, but at least I'll be able to say that they moved me from plaid to plaid+ and they cancelled the reservation without my consent.

    Yoke steering confirmed variable-ratio

    I love driving my p100d in the mountains, but I sure love autopilot for my commute or when I'm sitting in traffic! The great thing about FSD is that you'll be able to choose the moments you drive the car and skip the mundane stretches.

    Yoke steering confirmed variable-ratio

    I get the concern about the 2.33 lock-to-lock thing, but in terms of button controls, I think we'll get used to it. I ride motorcycles and the horn isn't in the middle of the handlebars. The blinkers aren't on a stalk. The human mind is pretty adaptable.

    Model S Lowering Links-Worth it?

    I have the adjustable ones. When Tesla replaced the autopilot computer, they recalibrated the suspension settings and wiped out my ride height. I had to go back and adjust the lowering links even lower afterwards.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Not really. A button is a button. The old wheel had 6 buttons and 4 scroll directions. The new one has 8 buttons and 4 scroll directions. It doesn't really matter that the buttons are blinkers. The haptic thing might be hard to emulate, but even that isn't rocket science.

    I think it's more natural actually. Up for forward, down for reverse. It matches the birds eye view of the car

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I've left mine in L+ accidentally for a few hours. I was driving around town and a few parking lots. I realized my mistake when I looked down and the average wh/mi was something like 580 while I was driving 10mph at the mall.

    Great post. Thanks for the detail. Definitely looking forward to an update next week on this!

    Plaid+ orders, post here if you're upset

    Yah - The right thing for them to do would be to honor the $119k price, $8k FSD, and $1.5k interior. That seems totally fair. To auto-upgrade me to plaid+, then cancel plaid+, then try to sell me a lesser car at the same price is shady af. Imagine if you bought tickets to a concert. There...

    Request: Video review from Plaid owner!

    Call from Tesla asking me to cancel Plaid+ and take a Plaid

    Totally agree. I want to argue with the sales guy just based on principle, but I should figure out if I actually want the Plaid first. Would be a jerk move to argue with him to get the $10k off, then say, "nah".

    Call from Tesla asking me to cancel Plaid+ and take a Plaid

    That's really frustrating. Pay $1k to get a car in October, have it cancelled, then have them not honor the timing of the original reservation by switching it to the version that didn't get cancelled.

    That blows my mind. Can someone with a physics degree tell us what would happen if the two left wheels went in reverse and the two right wheels went forward on a model s?

    Call from Tesla asking me to cancel Plaid+ and take a Plaid

    It's less about the money and more about my [likely misguided] belief that they're going to launch a new Plaid model in the next 18 months. If they figure out 4680 and put it in the Plaid in 18 months, I don't want to have to upgrade again. It's starting to feel like a cell-phone where you...

    Note the difference between turning radius and curb-to-curb (diameter) :)
  32. C

    Yoke steering confirmed variable-ratio

    Wow. The turning circle is even worse than before! The S is one of the worst cars I've driven in terms of turning diameter, and they just added another foot and a half to it.

    Call from Tesla asking me to cancel Plaid+ and take a Plaid

    Thanks for the intel. I'm really on the fence. The new Plaid is pretty sick and it sounds like I'll get it at a $12k discount ($10k less on the base and $2k less on the FSD). That said, I'm not sure it's worth the upgrade from my P100D. I figure I could get $70k for my P100D and the Plaid...

    Model S Plaid Livestream Scheduled for 7 p.m. PT

    It was a long time ago, so happily stand corrected. I thought I paid an extra $3k for Autopilot back then, but maybe that only promised basic autopilot functions which were delivered successfully. I thought there was a promise of FSD back then, but could be mis-remembering.

    Call from Tesla asking me to cancel Plaid+ and take a Plaid

    Did you happen to ask about getting fsd for $8k?

    Yah, back then you paid for eap and fsd separately. If I remember correctly? That was years ago.

    Model S Plaid Livestream Scheduled for 7 p.m. PT

    The production quality is emberassin I mean, had I known that no FSD features would be released during the life of my cars, I wouldn't have obviously.
  40. C

    Model S Plaid Livestream Scheduled for 7 p.m. PT

    I never thought about FSD. I paid for it in my 85D and got zero value. Paid for it again in my P100D and got zero value. Now I'm going to pay for it again in the Plaid and hope they actually release some FSD features. That kind of sucks :(

    I'm one of the many people that relies on superchargers for my daily driving. It doesn't make sense to install a charger at home. More range means fewer trips to the supercharger. A few things could improve this: 1) Chargers EVERYWHERE so I can charge while I'm at the store, mall...

    I can't wait until there's some real competition. Lucid is close (on paper), but SO ugly. EQS doesn't even come close in performance and looks like a Prius and an egg had a baby.
  46. C

    Plaid+ CANCELLED

    Got it. That's super shady. If they give all of the plaid plus reservation holders the same option: take a lesser car or lose your refund, I think there will be outrage. Thanks for flagging this early.

    Model S Delivery Event on June 10, 2021 [Rescheduled] - What to expect?

    Thanks. I'm going to wait to see the show tonight, then call and see if I can trade in my plaid+ reservation for a plaid for $119k and $8k fsd.

    Model S Delivery Event on June 10, 2021 [Rescheduled] - What to expect?

    Got it. So the preorder price was $129k, but when they split the reservations into plaid and plus, the plaid price was $119k?
