RE: Worlds smalest truck camper

An excellent craftsman to say the least. I assume it's from Japan, I could be wrong... I enjoyed it. Japan indeed. They take work and perfection in everything to another level :) Example knife making https://youtu.be/7dZmeh_28Eo Awesome country,hope I can travel again soon.love their bulet trains. 300 klicks and smooth as butter. https://youtu.be/LfE9tV04n7Y

RE: Worlds smalest truck camper

I always admire people with hobby. Had them my whole life and even on retirement I can't shake list of projects from my daily tasks. Cars and RV repairs is my hobby as well, even I do have mechanical education and thinking back, thank to the hobby I could afford RV people with same income could never afford. The guy on video likely is making less than $1/hr, yet he become TC owner. And a new one, not rotten junk. I doubt hes poor, he also built another big camper on Fuso flat deck big truck. https://youtu.be/GOQUNB56HvQ Theres english subtitles btw

RE: Electric Chevy Silverado Debut

Here's the new Electric Silverado Link At $107.000 I dont think it will sell very well. And No doubt the dealers will tack on ten grand or more like Ford does w their MachE. But good luck GM Ill wait for Cbrtk so dont need to worry about rust or place to charge when traveling cross country.

RE: this is why

How about making insulated box from rigid foam and puting batteries in that? Should keep it warm enough to work. Eventualy with EV trucks camping in winter will be no problem. Sleeping in Tesla in winter minus 26 https://youtu.be/VPudpniOmxY

RE: BEV as a toad behind diesel pusher

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

...Ford is going all in too. It's what I said awhile ago, when the OEM's start waking up, All the new startups are going to be in trouble. Ford CEO announced that Ford will be #2 behind Tesla in BEV by 2025(?). GM is unlikely to give up very easily. Phil I think we have been saying similar things. The OEMs experience will provide an advantage when the market is ready. Ford and GM have proven that they can build an electric vehicle. It appears that a couple of fan boys have nothing nice to say, but did not learn from their mom that if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing. I am guessing that you and I are waiting in great anticipation for the year-end financials. GM and Ford combined will probably make $20B more than that Texas company. And Ford and GM will provide real US sales numbers, not hiding behind global numbers. Judging by the huge demand for Tesla, Market has been ready many moons ago. OEms lack one thing Tesla has. Ill let you figure out what. Btw heres something for the Musk haters to chew on https://www.teslarati.com/elon-musk-1-million-per-day-us-taxes/

RE: The phone you always wanted

Well maybe not you but I like it,mainly for that replacable battery. https://youtu.be/v-ZAMsMO-7c Can only hope it will make its way to NA. And quickly I have a bad feeling,probably never. Too much competition to Iphone,they have a monopoly on the market I suspect as Ive never seen any adverts for this Fairphone. Come to think of it Ive never seen adverts for Blackberry either in a long time. It still has sort of cult status following and my 5 year old BB still works good,but after new year it will be useless. No talk text no 911 no nothing.weird. Ive heard that BB has the most secure OS that no one can hack,so maybe BB co. stil exist and makes software for other systems and cars.

RE: Tesla Cybertuck - Can we take another thread?

I read a thought provoking jab at EVs this morning, something I never considered. Not trying to stir anything up, but out of lack of knowledge, it makes me wonder. Let's suppose ICE vehicles are gone and it's all EV. I'm sure we have all been in a situation where there is a major issue on the road, a bad wreck, a weather problem, whatever. The highway is closed for many hours while they address the situation, perhaps even overnight or longer. And its January. You and everyone else is sitting there trying to stay warm and you have a 3 mile lineup of EVs with dead batteries.... How good are the heaters in an EV, and how much power do they draw? How do you rescue hundreds of motorists and clear a highway full of dead battery vehicles? Maybe the solution is simple and I don't see it... I carry some candles and sleeping bag in winter. Also dress up warm enough not to freeze. Most smart people living in the boonies do the same here. As they say be prepared for the worst is just common sense.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

At least the reporters aren't biased toward Tesla. :) Even handed articles are pretty scarce, since mostly it's non-news, just more hype about a non-production vehicle. Sounds like Trump: "It'll be the greatest, most amazing, fantastic, etc." Nothing but superlatives. :) I have no doubt it will be. :B Talk to any Tesla owners how they like their cars. Musk is waiting what the competition comes up with,then tops everyone,mark my words. Anyone tired of waiting should go buy Hummer Ive heard GM is number 1 in EV production acording to big Joe Brandon LOL Or Nikola, look how busy their factory is https://youtu.be/fuIH8HGZmbo

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Tesla is getting LFP batteries from BYD . 3 REASONS Tesla pivoted to LFP batteries faster than everyone else Is BYD really partnering with Tesla? Tesla and BYD are the two fastest growing EV makers today. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51716759947_a2e09d9006_c.jpg BYD USA makes electric buses and trucks in California. BYD USA https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51717881298_7c5079e1db_c.jpg Quote from BYD BYD Iron Phosphate Battery Systems are designed and manufactured to provide safe, consistent and reliable energy in the most demanding applications. BYD’s Iron Phosphate chemistry was originally designed for utility-scale energy systems that require up to 30 years of service. This extremely stable and reliable battery chemistry is capable of cycling thousands of times with minimal degradation, making it ideal for heavy duty electric truck applications. / quote Impressive ! Also their batts dont catch fire if punctured.

RE: KOA Installing EV Chargers

I would think that there would definitely be a charge (no pun intended) for using the EV chargers. After all it is KOA. How much does it cost to fully recharge empty Tesla anyway? Anyone here knows the real numbers? TY
