    Supercharger - Fort Smith, AR (unconfirmed)

    I am really struggling with this. Tesla keeps building superchargers in and around Kansas City but none in Arkansas. Aren’t they supposed to be for “long distance” travel. Why keep building them in metropolitan areas. The Waltons own several teslas, looks like they would have some pull?

    What other car manufacturer on the planet does this?

    So I called my Tesla service center for a routine maintenance checkup, 40,000 miles on my 85D. They said no need to drive to Kansas City, we will come to you! They made an appointment with me and came to my home, did the service and recalls in my garage, NO CHARGE and the tech was a totally...

    Tesla broke my Autopilot -> Don't UPDATE!

    Well aren’t you special. But for the rest of us poor SOB’s that get the nag while our hands are on the wheel, things are not as rosey.

    Is the nag now 15 seconds!

    This is why we can’t have nice things.

    Hold Steering Wheel every 20-25 seconds?

    Just because YOUR’s doesn’t does not mean EVERYONE’s doesn’t.

    Is the nag now 15 seconds!

    I hold it at 10 and 2 but I get nags anyway. The only position to stop the nags is to lay only one hand on the wheel. If I use both hands the nags continue and I have to consciously apply pressure to get the warning to stop.

    Is the nag now 15 seconds!

    I just read in electrik that the nag is now 15 seconds with the latest update. Called my service center to see if I can stop the install, ( I have it set up for 9:30 pm central time). They say nope, it is already downloaded and waiting to install. A15 second nag interval is intolerable. Now AP1...

    Yes You have two options. One; wide unswept area on the left with hidden arm or, two; full sweep with arm visible when not in use.

    -30C(-22F) this week. How is your car handling it?

    This has been a constant complaint of mine since the first cold weather that I encountered in 2015. It is much worse at speed than in town. I have used a few setting changes to make it better. 1) set AC to off if you can get by without the Windows fogging. 2) set the right hand scroll wheel to...

    Supercharger - Fort Smith, AR (unconfirmed)

    This location seems like a no brainier, but so far I have not seen anything from Tesla regarding this location. It is at least very difficult if not impossible to make it from the Joplin, Missouri supercharger to any points southwest. This would also make it much easier for folks traveling...

    Anyone tried Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06 tires?

    Went from 19 to 20. A slight drop in range. But worth it. Much smoother and quiet than the pilots on the 19s.

    Feedback on these 20" wheels and 20" in general?

    Cyclone Wheels 19 inch

    I have a set of 19 inch cyclone wheels off of my 2015 85D. I bought these as new car take offs on eBay. They were in nearly perfect condition when I took them in to have the tires removed so that I could sell them. As you can see in the accompanying photos, the tire shop damaged two of the...

    My adventures in gaining control of my car

    Wrong. If you build the airplane you can do whatever you want as long as you call it a " wink ", "EXPERIMENTAL ", airplane. And just for good measure you have to write the word, " EXPERIMENTAL" on the outside.

    Is the P worth 11-17k more than the 85D?

    I have the 85D. It feels significantly faster than the non D 85. I would not trade the 20 miles of range for the increased 0-20mph acceleration of the P85D. Now the P100D, that car is a beast. Still I cannot wrap my head around the $100,000 difference that it would cost me to upgrade to a P100D.

    Tesla Stores in Missouri to Reopen

    Well the MADA did accomplish one thing, they lost me as a customer forever. I live 10 miles from Oklahoma, 12 miles from Kansas and 25 miles from Arkansas. The next ice will come from one of those states. Never from a Missouri dealer, ever.

    8.0 (2.50.185) caution using TACC/Autosteer features

    A setting of 7 in my ap1 car correlates to 3.5 seconds. This translates to 0.5 sec per number. It keeps this time interval regardless of speed.

    Missouri bans sales of Tesla starting 1 Jan 17

    I have written my representative. Why is this not more in the news? This is the first I have heard of this. I am disgusted at our legislators.. If this sticks I will do everything in my power to make sure this is their LAST term in this state. Truly disgusting.

    How to prevent chips on windshield

    It is very similar to the windscreen on my old Mercedes. It gets lots of pits but doesn't crack. Seems to be a bit softer than the glass used on most American cars.

    Yellow Road Paint on Model S

    Go to local DuPont auto paint store. Buy 1 gallon of 3812S enamel reducer. Wear rubber gloves and use rags to dissolve the paint from the wheel well liners. Will also clean spray paint off of the car finish without harming it.
