Ben, it get's worse. I live next to the biggest Geothermal plant in the world. I have a few friends and family that work there.

One of my friends that work there told me that there is a 90% prediction that Kalifornia will run out of power this year and we will have blackouts. Nice hu?

Want to get wide eyed? Just do some calc's on the amount of land it will take to do solar refueling for 10 Semi's. [emoticon][emoticon][emoticon]

That guesstimate was based on current batteries Tusk uses...even his new 4680's

Solid state, saline, diamond nuclear, etc will change all that. Some more than others

Diamond nuclear batteries lasts forever and doesn't require charging...but it would take tens to hundreds of thousands or millions per vehicle. Still embryonic at this time


Over 50 years ago, while in college working part time we designed MG-sets for Gyeserville. Early generators from steam

But everything dessolved from hydrochloric acid mixed in with the steam. Tough environment that the epoxy paint on everything couldn't handle

Anybody else read the article where Tesla asked the Feds for a piece of the Infrastructure money for chargers? They want it specifically for building the network for Semis. Anybody remember at the unveil how Elon (fat Jesus) said they will build the network and provide power at like .03 a kw?

I believe they will have a piece of it. But maybe with a condition that they'll make the charging stations accessible to the public, not just Tesla owners.

But I would prefer that somebody call Elon's claim that he can provide solar energy to the whole country if someone will provide him a 100x100 miller of land to put up the solar panels.

Still waiting with not definite production date and Elon is running out of next year.

Or Musk is simply busy yapping and starting a fight with somebody who also have several zeros on the wallets.

Now he is becoming paranoid claiming the CIA is watching him. His appointment to his shrink must be overdue for Aspergers syndrome manifested by his extreme narcissism and now paranoid delusions (previously just delusions of grandeur).[emoticon]

I'm just hoping he first manufacture and release my Cybertrucck before he gets institutionalized .[emoticon]

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.. My all millennial kids love it. The boomers in the family said it's ugly. The looks is growing on me specially if I can add the 50 cal machine gun on top when I go to Texas.

Anyone ever consider how, if the cyberfluck is actually put into production and maintains its bare stainless steel skin, not only how fry an egg on the hood hot it will be driving around a 18’ long mirror, but more so how bad it will look after the normal day to day dings, scratches and swirl marks start happening?
Or are they clear coated? And how does that bond to a mirror finish?
