    Supercharger - Kemptville Ontario

    Merged and renamed. Thanks.

    ISS News and Discussion

    The Cygnus cargo craft now has the ability to raise ISS orbit. So apparently NASA has been planning for this.

    Supercharger - Madoc, ON

    And yes, this looks like a super-useful location. I've done a few trips in the past where this would have made things a LOT easier!

    Supercharger - Madoc, ON

    Moderator note: Respectfully, absolutely yes. We do not need multiple threads on the same topic. I have merged the two threads, and applied the standard format title, "Supercharger - Madoc, Ontario". Going forward please do not create duplicate threads.

    Supercharger - Kingston, ON (Dalton Ave)

    I’m charging here right now. Fastest charge I’ve ever had at 155 kW. Nice quiet location. The original site isn’t even shown on the Tesla screen or app. Maybe they will only show it if all 8 stalls here fill up. Only one car here when I arrived, but another just appeared.

    SpaceX F9 - DART - SLC-4E

    I would assume it achieved escape velocity.

    Pics of new Ottawa Sales Centre

    Interesting that they've closed it again - it had cars inside, desks, and staff. I'm guessing they've closed it to complete their renovations...? Also of course we are in lockdown again.

    Canadian Stores and Service Centers

    We dropped in recently. Nice location and lots of cars in the show room. They did say they will have full service on site, but it's not open yet. They also said that Carling service would remain open.

    Best racetrack in Ontario for Tesla model 3?

    Calabogie and Shannonville both have high power chargers onsite (I arranged for both to be installed).

    Ontario green plates

    Yes I was the very first to get a green vehicle plate. I actually delayed licensing my car for a couple of weeks for that - and the rebate! Despite that, I was lucky to get the 001 plate because it happened to be available at the office where my car was registered.

    MCU2 upgrade cost

    Honestly, it's simply incompetent. Speaking as an EE who has designed many systems that incorporate FLASH and EEPROM memory, it is well-known that these devices have a maximum number of write cycles before they fail. It's basic physics in the way they work. So they should have easily...

    Interment beeping sound has started when driving?

    Probably your parking sensors are covered in snow. Whenever you slow down enough that they are active, they start beeping. Just clean them off.

    Thread Naming Conventions

    Managing this forum is like herding kittens at the best of times, and I don't have as much time to devote to this these days. There are a bunch of things we could do, such as having a master index wiki thread. However, there is no point in even starting one unless somebody is going to commit...

    New charging protocol for 2021 TM3 SR+?

    If you want to have accurate charge capacity display, then occasionally showing the battery management system a nearly-empty battery will help it calibrate itself. But you certainly do not need to do this once a month!
  21. Doug_G

    Thread Naming Conventions

    Yes we generally try to merge topic that are duplicated. Yes it would be renamed when the site is confirmed. No I will not be extracting posts from the regional threads. I am trying it in the Canada section; if it works well I’ll recommend this to the other moderators.

    Wiki Links to Canadian For Sale Threads

    The powers-that-be don't want buy/sell threads posted in the regional sections. Therefore I'm making a WikiPost thread. If you post a Canadian car or other item in the Marketplace section, you can link it here. Add your listing to the top. 2014 Model S85 with NEW battery (Durham region...

    Supercharger - Lachenaie, QC

    I disagree, given the prolonged inactivity. Right now, there's no Supercharger here, and we have no idea when/if one will appear. It's entirely possible that some sort of deal fell through after the construction started. We can change the name back when some Supercharger equipment actually...

    Supercharger - Lachenaie, QC

    Given the apparent uncertainty about this location actually coming to fruition, I've renamed this thread to "Possible Location". Can change it back if actual Supercharger equipment ever appears.

    Thread Naming Conventions

    I'd like to reserve the title "Supercharger - name-of-location" for actual confirmed locations. For speculative / "promised" but not confirmed locations I'd like to use the naming "Possible Location - name-of-location". They can be renamed if construction actually starts. As we've seen...

    The Rules of Model S Road Tripping

    Yes it certainly is SO much easier to road trip these days. I used to thoroughly plan out every trip; now I usually just jump in the car and go. Glad to hear the post is still useful after all this time!

    The Rules of Model S Road Tripping

    Thanks! Goes to show... the basic physics/engineering hasn’t really changed. Tesla did an amazing job on their first cars, and have only improved on them since.

    Ontario electricity billing change: TOU or tier for EV charging?

    Since I charge overnight, and we work outside the home, the bulk of our power usage is at night. So TOU is a no-brainer for us at least.

    Model 3 not moving after tire change?

    That really doesn't sound like a thing! I wouldn't use a Canadian Tire for a Tesla. I'd be worried that they'd damage the battery pack.

    SpaceX F9 - Comm Crew DM-2 - LC-39A

    Funny how they spent two hours attached to the station while they figured out how to get communications working and set up the video cameras for the big show. I bet it would have taken over an hour anyway with pressure equalization and all the close-out steps on board. I was half-watching...

    What's gone wrong with your Roadster?

    Hmm... I'd have to see it to remember. Can you pop off the wheel and post a picture of the suspension in that area? Doug

    Canadian Stores and Service Centers

    They've been moving away from having Supercharge locations at the service centers. At Lawrence the service center's need for parking and charging often conflicted with the public's need for Supercharger access.

    Tesla Graphical Log Parser

    Thanks for bringing that to my attention. I’ll try to find some time to work on it. Can you provide a log to test it with? (I no longer have a Roadster)

    Commercial Crew Transportation Capability (CCtCap) SpaceX and Boeing Developments

    Hmm... that is concerning. I suppose if the root cause was also the timer anomaly, resulting in the thrusters being used outside their design envelope, then it may not be a big problem. But Boeing will have to prove that, and demonstrate an adequate safety margin for crewed operations...

    SpaceX F9 - Comm Crew In Flight Abort - LC-39A

    In the press conference, Elon said that the first action in the abort sequence is to shut down the booster engines. Then the Super Dracos fire. So the engine shutdown was caused by the abort, and was not itself the trigger. He also said that the abort was triggered by setting tighter Flight...

    Commercial Crew Transportation Capability (CCtCap) SpaceX and Boeing Developments

    Boeing’s aircraft people are a completely different group from their space people. Totally agree that Boeing should not have based the MAX software on one sensor. In fact the aircraft never should have been certified as it didn’t comply with safety regulations. (I can say this with some...

    Commercial Crew Transportation Capability (CCtCap) SpaceX and Boeing Developments

    That is overly harsh. Complex systems always have bugs. That's why you do testing. The Space Shuttle has its first ever launched scrubbed because the computers wouldn't synchronize. Turned out there was a minor design flaw and therefore a small chance (something like one in a hundred) that...

    Commercial Crew Transportation Capability (CCtCap) SpaceX and Boeing Developments

    Personally I think they have to redo the flight test. Devils advocate... the crew on the space station is still at significant risk in a botched docking, even if the spacecraft has no crew. Potentially a live crew could abort docking. So it’s not entirely clear what the safest course of action is.

    Shaming a Model S owner - Poor Charge Station Etiquette

    So I don't mind sharing some power once in a while to help someone get to their destination. What I DO mind is obnoxious behavior like this. The paddle is wet and/or frozen and is not going to work for the next guy. There's a reason there's a cable hanger and a holster for the charge paddle...
