    Should they add stalkless driving to Model Y?

    per the Joe Rogan podcast, Elon elaborated how it'd work. It would use parking sensors to assume D or R based on obstruction. Override would be on the touch screen. I say go for it. It'll reduce some build cost by eliminating the stalks.

    How I upgraded from NEMA 5-15 to NEMA 6-20 for $66

    Good job. I did something similar by using existing conduit for a single 120V run and adding 2 - 10AWG hots and 1 6AWG ground to create a 240-30amp circuit next to the existing 120. Great when you're handy!

    Just finished my first "road trip" and I am not happy with range

    This is why I'm looking forward to the 500 mile Teslas. Plenty of buffer for cold conditions. In a year I plan on trading in the 3 for a 500 mile Cybertruck or cross my fingers the new more efficient battery cells come out for the Y.

    Tesla Wall Charger, how to tell the difference between Gen 2 vs Gen 3?

    I prefer gen3. Glass front and smaller footprint is appealing but most importantly, the cord is much thinner , lighter and manageable, similar to the one that comes w the car.

    Dead 12v Questions

    Charging at Home need help: Extension cable, outlet, new cable?

You may also want to consider having an electrician either moving that outlet closer to where you want it, creating an outdoor outlet, or depending on how long you plan on living at your house, installing a more permanent outdoor station on the outside wall of your garage...

    Will you buy FSD before the $1,000 increase on July 1st?

    Charging in detached garage at apartment

    1) check if the outlet is on its own breaker or shared between the other units 2) if on own breaker, check the breaker size. If 15 amps, use what comes w the car. If 20 amps get the adapter mentioned above to charge a bit faster and possibly convert your outlet to a NEMA 5-20r

    TeslaCam Instructions and Observations

    USB Sizing for Sentry Mode?

    That's what I had to do. Also found it a bit challenging to format a 256GB drive as FAT32, which I believe is the only format the car will support. Apparently Windows drops the FAT32 option for drives greater than 32GB. If you have Windows, you need to find an app to do this. If you have a...

    USB Sizing for Sentry Mode?

    Currently running an old USB 2.0 32GB drive that works flawlessly versus some other drives which failed after they became full (even after reformatting). Curious how much recording time I will have with my old USB 2.0 32GB drive? I also have a newer USB 3.0 256GB, but is that overkill...

    Vampire Losses: How About Disconnecting the 12V ?

    I put the 12 V on a battery tender for long periods. That’s hoping the car electronics don’t need to use the main battery to top off the 12 and thereby causing vampire drains.

    You probably don't need fast charge speed at home

    2 points If I was as frugal as OP I would simply move the existing 240v outlet closer to the desired location. This is a DIY with a little help of YouTube and your hardware store in installing and mounting pre cut conduit. 2) I'd be concerned running solely on 120 as the charging electronics...

    Model 3 Charge Port Cover - Broken Flap (Auto close or vandalism?)

    Fortunately I was working from home today. The other M3 owner along with a civic in the lot were not as lucky. Poor guy. His is only a couple months old as well. I wonder what a new glass roof costs and who puts those in. Tesla or body shop.

    Starting to regret FSD pre-purchase in a major way

    We’re talking years prior to anything FSD worthy to be released to consumers.
