    First of all it's @Haxster, and if you've seen any of his other posts, it's most certainly a joke.

    Yes. From my April Fools' collection of threads.

    (And it does actually work. But really; don't do this. AP2 is risky enough with your hands on the wheel).

    I can't wait to see the first post of someone saying they're suing you because they braked too fast and it put a hole under their steering column or a brick hit them in the face or j0nk from accelerating too fast.

    After a short time, non-paying members can't edit their posts.

    Don't worry about it. I've been called worse. At least it wasn't Huxster.

    hey I get the humor, I really do, the problem is that Tesla have to design for the lowest common denominator and that no doubt will include someone who sees this then does it for real and ends up in an accident :)

    I requested that a moderator modify the thread title to try and dispel the impression that the video linked to by the OP was a serious recommendation.

    The thread title has now been changed to include "[Humor]" at the beginning. That is helpful. Thanks to the moderators!

    Another advantage to this method is that by the time you have consumed all of the water in the thermos (ballast), you'll be ready to pull off to the side of the road anyway!;)
