    You can't buy those parts from Tesla. And the only public specs are whatever you can find on their website, which does not break out sizes and weights for batteries and drive trains.

    Mercedes and Toyota were able to buy those from Tesla. I'm guessing your pockets aren't as deep as theirs.

    It's very easy to get a battery pack and drive train from Tesla. just buy a car and then take it apart.
