Yeah, I'm still stuck with one of those ancient rolling wrecks that Tesla hasn't produced for AGES: a lousy, no-account, feeble, arthritic P85+. A 0-60 mph time that I'm ashamed to mention in this august forum. Heck, the beast is so differently abled that only two of its four wheels ever get any power. Imagine that! And it's only the rear wheels, to boot, doomed to struggle to push the car through any kind of weather at all. It's cold out. The blizzard has been doing its thing since last night... only a week since the last big storm... The wife thought I was crazy to go out -- who needs orange juice and bananas so badly they can't wait until tomorrow? But it had to be done. The plows are struggling to keep up. Even where the roads have been plowed, there's a significant layer of ice and snow. And that's on the main drag. In the side areas, the snow is piling up and it can be treacherous to turn from one street to another; much better to swing way out, *around* the snow plow's leavings, to make the turn using the lane of oncoming traffic. Cars are getting stuck. People are sliding through traffic lights. There are some steep hills. It's ugly out there! People are staying home! Stores are empty! There was an Audi A6 (looked like a quattro) stuck on a hill! The car was wearing its Nokiian Hakka R2s today... I gave the Tesla Traction Control a real work-out. :biggrin: Wheee!!!!!!!!!!!! I even got to raise the suspension to Very High as part of my bullheaded plan to go up the hill outside my home, rather than go around the long way and come down that hill instead. The entrance to the street had been plowed in as part of clearing the intersecting street. Ha! Bwaa haaa haaa haaa haaa!!! Pretty goddamned happy today with this car and these tires! Alan P.S. Sorry I don't have better pictures to offer. It's Boston, so no one is particularly obsessed with cleaning snow, ice and moisture off their windshields. And a lot of the time I was managing to get the car up to 25-30 mph while taking pix with one hand and driving with the other. Sadly, I had to use two hands for the part that was most fun -- breaking through the snow barrier and jamming the car up the hill outside my house through the ice and unplowed snow. Coupla nervous moments there -- some might call them "oh, sh*t" moments, others might say, "oh, dear", I was grumbling, "get thee behind me, Tesla Watertown Service Center Manager! Damn you and your offers of a P85D loaner! I will NOT get stuck here and throw in the towel and call you to come tow the car away and trade it for a P85D!" -- and that was the most fun of all!!
