    Note: "Don't try this at home!".... I mean don't try this when your car is parked at home (inside your garage)

    You should try keeping the FWD open while "Driving Model X 200 kph/125 mph for over 100 km/60 mi"...

    - You might experience be able to take off!!!

    I've thought about doing this in "parade mode", carrying the festival queen or whatever. It would seem to beat a convertible on rainy days!

    But how do you stop the damn warning chime?

    To remove warning chime open and close passenger door or attempt to put car into cruise control

    I've driven my 2017 Model X in parade mode several times in the past. Just did a test today and found there is once again a problem with the doors sagging (it's an old software glitch from 2016 that has come back). Is anyone else seeing this? I'm about to get FSD and MCU upgrades so hoping that will fix the problem.

    The door sagging that I observed while driving with the wing doors open (parade mode) has been fixed by the updating to 2020.24.6.11 - although there is no longer any way to silence the beeping (in the past you could use the autopilot engagement lever to do so).
