RE: The big anti virus lie

How to make a clicky in one easy step. Also I don't blame anyone for being very cautious. Hackers seem to be everywhere in very large numbers. Hackers are easy to stop,just dont open any email atachments if you dont know who sent it. I dont even answer calls IF I dont know whos caling,just let it go to voicemail. Left No msg = SPAM or scam. Get plenty of those daily. some want to blame Russia for everything

RE: EV's I know there are folks better versed than me in here

I keep seeing articles like this LA buses 3/4 million dollar vehicles that dont/cant work. Other articles showing that in hilly areas, the brakes dont work in part from attempts to capture energy stopping function, other cities having problems too, Minnesota To invest big bucks into one as a personal vehicle , without the ability like these cities to bring back a retired Diesel to handle operation while the electrics are being continually repaired just seems crazy for all but the insanely wealthy. The largest battery-powered electric bus fleet in North America is Canadian. Toronto's transit system is now running 59 electric buses from three suppliers. And Canadian pioneers such as Toronto offer lessons for other transit systems aiming to transition to greener fleets for the low-carbon economy of the future. https://www.cbc.ca/news/science/electric-buses-transit-1.5823166 Imo the clean air is worth it.

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

Tesla Model S Plaid World Record - 9.08 154 mph 1/4 mile yawn! Mach E blew that away 1500-hp-electric-ford-mustang-cobra-jet-crush-the-quarter-mile-in-8-27-seconds Do you not understand the difference between a stock production car and a one off factory built drag car ? And the production Meh E can never match Tesla tech. https://youtu.be/eVi0MQFy9K8

RE: SEMI cameras

Many years ago I went to professional truck driver school for a class 1 with air. Was taught there to NEVER pull up so close behind a stopped vehicle that you cannot pullout again without backing up. If traffic ahead in your lane jambs up or vehicle in front of you stalls and traffic is pulled up close behind you, you are stuck there. I was also told to keep far back enough to see the tires of vehicle in front of me.

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

I am interested in this thread, but the constant "almost here, almost here, almost here, almost here" just gets so tiresome. Why can't the fan boys just accept that it will be late, and it will get here at some point, and give it a rest? Instead we get daily reports about it's "almost here". I mean it's coming up on 4 years and it's still not here, but it's "almost here". Its all about clicks,views, Electrek and everyone else and YT does the same. Put Tesla headline in and fans n haters will be right on it Lol Now better question is why isnt Ford GM or Rivian selling any EV trucks yet?

RE: TR: where did all the water go?

Beautiful place,,Im guesing lack of snow in winter and very litle rain lately must have something to do with low water levels. Maybe that Global warming is real.

RE: Fulltime Capable RVs

Full timing to me means four season rig one can live in any weather. Plus 40C to minus 40. And to able go anywhere 4x4 is esential. Good luck finding such rig,I havent seen any at reasonable price,will need to built it myself someday.

RE: Kimbo or Lance for the Cybertruck?

Kimbo for Cybertruck For the wifey to even look at truck camper, it had to be the equivalent of Lance 1172. Neither,wait until Tesla makes the semi.Then put anything you want on it. Only TC that would fit Cbrtk without hurting areodynamics would be some small Pop Up

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

Not the Semi, but the Model S Plaid is Hot....LITERALLY! So here's what you do if you're a Tesla shortseller or competitor: 1. Buy a brand new Model S Plaid, the world's fastest production car 2. Take out a good insurance policy 3. Set it on fire 4. Call 911 and say "there's a burning Tesla going UPHILL!" 5. Take a nice picture of the burning car, then leave the scene 6. Hire a good lawyer and tell them that you were trapped in the car. You almost died in there! 7. Blame Tesla for "ignoring" you while they're obviously still trying to figure out what really happened 8. Watch the share price take a dive as Plaid orders are being cancelled 9. Hope that you dont get caught! If you're really lucky, the authorities will force Tesla to stop selling the Plaid altogether! 10. Cash in on your short investment 11. Collect the insurance money Farfetched? Why would Pensylvania driver imediately call lawyers in LA and Miami before the fire was even extinguished.

Tesla-Lucid Motors rivalry gets personal https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51286336224_67e14d2364_c.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51285617811_77d6c59842_c.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51286636000_ffd83b8f60_c.jpg video After the Tesla Model S Plaid came out it looks like the only thing to save Lucid is to have one catch fire and make national news. Coincidence ? Lol Cant save a company that doesnt sell any vehicles ! :B

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

The Tesla is street legal, handles well, and is fast with 5 people inside an air conditioned cabin. That Mustang is useless for anything other than turning money into smoke.But it also looks way cool. The Tesla looks like a four-door sedan. There's a reason nobody hotrods four-door sedans. Well theres always somebody :B https://youtu.be/ryQfnV3M3pk

RE: Looks like electric trucks and RVs may be delayed...

Ah, but scooby, nobody is telling anyone they MUST buy the "L" shaped things. And therein lies the difference. Rural folks tend to be more independent, they prefer freedom to attend to many of their own affairs, and to make their own choices. The urban side tends to rely on others to do most things for them, from reliance on transit, to maintaining everything in their daily lives. Loss of electrical service in a large city shuts everything down, at my home, and most neighbors, its a minor inconvenience. I dont object to tech, I have solar at home and on my RV, I also have a generator in both. I will use tech where it is reasonable, but I try to remain independent enough to at least for limited periods of time to be able to meet my own needs. To require an EV disrupts that independence. Some dont mind the loss of independence, if it offers convenience. But as an example, the classic LA getaway to Vegas for a weekend, to drive a Tesla MAY be possible but at 270 miles , especially if you run the AC, you will be pushing the envelope. Even a Hybrid fixes the problem. That is and should be their choice. But they should not attempt to force it upon others. No one is forcing anyone to drive ev.however some cities will ban ice cars eventualy due to air polution. Good idea imo no one cares to smell deadly exhaust fumes. Btw Tesla truck will get 500 miles range, and with solar on your roof one can kiss gas stations bye bye. No wonder Tesla has milions preorders Many asian countries big cities are pushin evs due to bad polution,and bikes scooters are popular bc they are cheap and can go anywhere This is from 2016 so lot has changed https://youtu.be/nkbO_7ZtRto

RE: Looks like electric trucks and RVs may be delayed...

Manufacturing costs (financially and environmentally) will always be greater with BEVs (period). "End of life" (aka recycling) societal costs will always be greater with BEVs (period).Let me know when "End of Life" on an ICE also includes removing the pollutants and CO2 emitted over the 20 year life of refining the petrol and burning it. And let me know when the "End of Life" on an BEV will no longer require massive amounts of fossil fuels to properly recycle those expired batteries....and will no longer require 3,000-30,000 gallons of water to extinguish a flaming BEV. Trading one evil (oil extraction) for another evil (destructive mining) does not make either option righteous. Fear not ,new batts are fireproof https://cleantechnica.com/2020/03/29/byd-unveils-new-fire-explosion-resistant-blade-battery/
