    SpaceX FH - Psyche - LC-39A

    I reckon I have 20-30 years left in me. I wonder if I will live to see commercial asteroid mining (like in that fab, OLD, video game, "Elite")? I love the idea of concentrated precious metals spinning in space... (Which is why I really like the current iPhone ad, with the titanium born in a...

    I wonder if maybe Elon KNOWS what they are, but the FAA doesn't!! That us to say, (he can't help himself) he is teasing the FAA as SpaceX identified 63 actions to them and they said "Fine" without necessarily working them out or even understanding the corrective actions themselves?

    Hey, SpoonMXP, Tiger, This is a useless whinging thread for Australians who want to spit the dummy over the fact that they can't have the Model S they want. If you are going to have sensible conversations about a car you can ACTUALLY BUY, then we are just going to feel worse. Go and enjoy your...

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    I have had the Model S squirm a little when braking across, say, tram tracks or other moderate gap running across the road. Feels like the anti-skid and ABS get activated at the times when the brakes are activated and the tyres get into even the tiniest gap of air.

    One of my favourite photos! Love his nonchalant pose working many many metres up! Mind you, that looks like a safe and effective fence to stop him falling off!! Finally: wonderful exposition of the scale of those grid fins! Are they titanium on Starship like they are on Falcon? I want one as a...

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    Wow, that is exactly as you say- terrible. Have you run the battery right down to see if the problem is in estimating range rather than real? That is over double my lifetime rate in a Ludicrous Performance S, and I think Tesla has some explaining to do.

    Soz, Vostok, the "in" joke is our mutual, shared, marked disappointment at Tesla's decision to renege on their sales of Model S to Australia. However, both of us can't help torturing ourselves (and each other) with graphic descriptions of how bloody awesome the now-unobtainable vehicle actually...

    Good point, Sluggabed, it would seem easier to re-arrange the car if you don't have a solid shaft from steering wheel to rack. I know some drive-by-wire cars still DO have such a shaft (for safety) so I am unsure if it will help our cause...

    I've noticed plenty of teslas with headlights that seem ill-adjusted. Not sure how that happens, but you can pick them miles away bay the glare.

    Yes, I think that that's just what the market might reach now that they are the fastest car you can buy, pretty much. Annoyingly, maybe the best EV you could buy. But you can't buy any more.

    I drove an EQE53AMG yesterday - wow! the interior is amazing! Almost TOO much tech- looks a bit overwhelming. Fast enough but feels a little isolated from outside- even less road feel than Raven (thought that was impossible!). Parking camera and HUD are the best I've ever seen, its bizarre that...

    Goodbye all; Good riddance Tesla

    Yup. Model S sadly on the way out, I suspect. Not coming to RHD countries. I am ****ing passed off, having waited years for this. I realise that that is a highly entitled attitude, but it is kind of a hobby / interest, not just a vehicle.
