Tug of war competitions are about keeping traction. This is usually about tires used and driver skill rather than the rest of vehicle.


Weight is also a critical component. The 4X2 Ford has little weight over the rear wheels. I am sure with the battery pack in the Tesla, it is weighted down significantly, which is likely why it sags so bad with 1000 pounds of ATV in the back. Sam your $100 deposit would do better in the stockmarket, than sitting at Tesla for the next 5 years.


I don't think you can invest $100 in the stock market without being laugh at.

Second, I'm already in Tesla stocks and made some good money off it and putting my money where my mouth (investment) is.

Presumably, you are not good in math, 2019 to 2021 is not 5 years.

Further, if I don't like it or grow to love it, I'll buy the Ford equivalent and I'll have an opportunity loss of 3 cents.

Actually, I already like it's capabilities and specs. Waiting for Motor Trend to do an independent evaluation.


LOL! The $100 was a joke. I was being facetious. Making the point your money will sit for a very long time. I am actually really good at math, you would presume wrong. Tesla hasn't hit a target date yet, so them saying 2021 I say it will much longer than that. Honestly I would be surprised if they make it that long. I think they have a much greater likelihood of being bought out.

Being bought out

HAHAHAHAHA

Tesla stock is worth more then big 3 combined and going much higher in future.


@ksss -- don't leave your day job and keep that last $100 you have.[emoticon]

No future for you in teaching math, investment, stock trading and carni crystal ball reading.[emoticon]


I got math, and investment, crystal ball...well see but the Ponzi scheme that is Tesla will reveal itself. My suggestion to you is, don't sell your Prius in anticipation of your Tesla pickup in advance, you could be walking for a while.

Bolinger cost 130Gs and has no charging network
Neither does Rivian btw
There are actually quite a few public charging stations if you seek them out.
As always primary charging is probably at home.

If someone is worried about the long term return on $100 they have other problems to resolve first.

I rather like this vehicle, and I do not think the new Chevy HD is better looking, but, just my opinion.

Ugly as sin, and obviously no good for a fifth wheel... But the specs on the high end model are very impressive. 14K tow rating, 3500 lbs capacity, 500+ miles range, and the price is in the ballpark of high end trim lines of other pickups. I hope it sells well, proves the whole notion possible, and they put one out (or Rivian does) that can tow a fiver.

Is that a formica countertop Dash with a laptop mounted to it? I'm sure the designer of the Pontiac Aztec thought it was a good looking vehicle as well. You know what they say (beauty is in the eye of the beholder).

Well, in this case it would more likely be "Beauty is in the eye of the beerholder.

3mm thick stainless body panels ?

Dumb

Does anyone know how the panels are fastened together ?

Images so far indicates a monocoque and to stiffen those flat panels enough, would have the cross members likewise thicker is m th guess
