    not sure where to put this... and I'm not a graphics designer, but thought...

    Ever see those T-shirts that have a bunch of differentials on the back?

    http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51hlYFiLLPL._SL160_.jpg

    Here's what I want.

    FRONT: Small Tesla logo or Tesla name
    BACK: "Know your holes" OR "Know your Plugs" Or "Stick it in" or something equally tongue-in-cheek. I'm not a linguist...

    and a chart of all the common Tesla NEMA outlets with labels, similar to the Know your Rear Ends"

    Ehh? Ehh? yea it's crude, but so am I :)

    Love this idea! I'm not a graphics designer, but I know my way around Photoshop. I'll do a mock up so we can get a visual. I think having all the graphics on the front would be the way to go. Sort of the like the Tesla supercharger shirt that they sell. I'll post it up later this evening.

    Under each image of the outlet; put the MPH as well

    so like:

    NEMA 14/50
    30 MPH

    NEMA XX
    XY MPH

    etc.

    HPWC
    60 MPH

    SuperCharger
    300 MPH

    I kind of like the idea of a shirt with all the plugs but don't really like the "Stick it in" or "Know your holes" innuendo. Nobody I know would ever use those phrases when referring to plugging a socket into a receptacle. Also, the HPWC and Supercharger aren't quite the same since you wouldn't ever use the other end of those cables (so they don't go with the text).

    I do like having the MPH listed though. Add them all! 5-15, 5-20, 6-15, 10-30, 14-30, 14-50, etc.!

    I know it's crude, maybe someone can make both. The off road one is "Know your rear-ends" :)

    My buddy would always bring his "NO HUMPING" sign when we would off road... I miss my Jeep... I was on my 3rd (traded in for the Tesla). The sign came from a train yard, but applies off road too... if you are bouncing up/down on the rocks you'll break something as the tires are spinning and once you make contact you'll get grip and something will go SNAP.

    As slow as possible, as fast as necessary.


    And of course the fairly obvious other meaning ;)
