    [–] Tesla Daily Discussion - June 25, 2019 striatedglutes 2 points ago in teslamotors

    Has there been anything published about the supercharging kW max on a mid-range model 3? Link if possible? Thanks!

    This is only speculation:

    [–] Not mulch, but like $80 worth of soda water. striatedglutes 10 points ago in teslamotors

    For the love of god, go to a beer supply store and ask for a setup to carbonate your own water with. Filled CO2 tank + regulator + beer hose + clamps + adapter thing that goes on the end of the hose + some of these

    Will pay for itself in no time, and it's both cheaper and more adjustable than a soda stream.

    [–] Will the Model 3 AWD-LR-P that I ordered be enough for my mileage needs? striatedglutes 2 points ago in teslamotors

    Does this data still really hold for model 3? Do we know that the BMS is going to treat the pack the same?

    The Greensboro, Burlington, and Raleigh superchargers are just fine. The Burlington one is a PITA to get to though, so allow an extra 5 minutes in/out. The Raleigh one might not make sense for your trip at all (but it has tons of spaces and is next to a ton.

    Not sure if you're serious, but they've mentioned that only EVs will be allowed in the tunnels due to emissions.

    God I loved that line as a kid and totally forgot about it until just now. Thank you.

    I bought a midrange in December 2018 and wish I had just thrown in the cash difference down for LR AWD. You can always buy FSD later, but you can't change your battery pack or motor spec.

    I think the AWD is zippier passing on the highway (test drove that version, not MR), the added range is great peace of mind, and who doesn't love a 0-60 time in the 4s?

    The power output is also tied to battery charge level. Charge to 90% if you want to accelerate fast(est) all the time.

    I flipped the image and rotated it so that the Tesla logo matched the logo on my model 3 in my driveway. Hope this helps along with the other fan renders in replies to your comment:

    [–] Constantly forgetting non car keys (house, shed, work keys) striatedglutes 1 points ago in teslamotors

    Put your key rack at eye level next to the door you use to exit your house. Place your keys on the rack every time you come home as a habit. You'll never forget your keys.

    [–] Surprisingly FIRE friendly benefits working at Walmart striatedglutes 6 points ago in financialindependence

    So it’s just a bunch of people going “I literally can’t even today” ? Being slightly facetious, but I’m genuinely curious.

    [–] My partner and I make a combined $78,000 per year, have a total savings/downpayment of $70,000, and do not live in a major city... Yet we cannot afford to buy a home the can accommodate our two cars, two dogs, and hobbies. striatedglutes 56 points ago in firstworldproblems

    Sounds to me like you DO live in a major city then? 300k in a medium COL area where I live would get you exactly what you need (no garage but can easily park 2 cars at my place).

    What about burning some savings, getting new jobs, and moving somewhere lower COL where you could perhaps both not commute and still get what you want? I think there are lots of threads around here listing those cities.

    [–] If you had 10 years to FIRE what job would you switch to for efficiency and mental health? striatedglutes 3 points ago in financialindependence

    Find a company you want to work for and start applying for open sales jobs. Bonus points if you want to work for a company that someone can give you a referral / recommendation at. Wanting to work somewhere and saying why in the interview process can make a difference if they need to hire and the candidate pool is low.

    Sales Development Rep / Business Development Rep are people who cold call and set meetings all day. That’s the bottom, and you can get promoted from there to someone who’s actually on that meeting and making sales.

    Get to know the industry and its players. Check out who you’d be competing against for business. Go into it with a realistic expectation of the hours you’ll have to put in and the work it will be.

    Once you’re promoted and not just setting meetings anymore, have a steady work ethic, build pipeline, work your funnel, and you’ll at least end up somewhere in the middle (even if you end up at a crappy company).

    You are missing that the model 3's efficiency number is measured in Wh/mile. This number will change in the real world depending on weather conditions, heat/AC usage, cargo load, and driving style. The EPA rating on my mid range RWD is 241 Wh/mi. If you live in the northern US people say it's hard to get below 300Wh/mi in winter. If you live somewhere that you'll hardly use your heat/AC, it will be easy to get 241Wh/mi and you'll probably beat it some drives. If you go 80mph everywhere... good luck :)

    To drive your 264 miles, you'll use approximately 63.6kWh if you achieve the 241Wh/mi efficiency (241Wh/mi * 264mi). At your electric rate of $0.089166/kWh, that comes to $5.67 (63.6kWh * $0.089166/kWh).

    Compare to your Corolla: (264mi / 30mi/gal) * $2.80/gal = $24.64.

    You can see that in both scenarios it costs you more to drive in a less efficient manner. Hope this helps.

    [–] FSD $1,000 price increase postponed until May 10th striatedglutes 2 points ago in teslamotors

    From what I gathered from the presentation, your comment is incorrect. They mentioned that more processing power allows either higher complexity at current frame rates or existing complexity at higher frame rates. No doubt it is a trade off curve like any other in life.

    Another one of Karpathy’s recent talks (don’t have the link, but it was in a megathread) talks about “Software 2.0” (machine learning / AI) eventually consuming more and more space of what “Software 1.0” (traditional branching logic) does today (his broad terms, not Tesla FSD terms). This is easily extrapolated IMO to understand that if a certain program has a mix of 1.0/2.0 and falls short of its current goal, increasing the ratio of 2.0 code can and will help it achieve its goal, given that goal is related to Software 2.0 in the first place.

    We’ll just have to see.

    [–] Tesla Daily Discussion - April 25, 2019 striatedglutes 2 points ago in teslamotors

    Given model 3 just started getting the FSD computer put into them, I’d wait for a new 2019 so I didn’t have to deal with the mobile service appointment later on, but maybe that’s not a big deal for you.

    I think you’re forgetting about the new FSD computer changing the game when it comes to what we’ll see as possible with FSD.

    [–] Interesting insight on the state of Autonomy from the Founder of Creative Destruction Lab and AI expert striatedglutes 1 points ago in teslamotors

    Did you see many sales engineers pivot industries in your time? I've been in cyber security about 7 years now, but I don't know if I'd do it forever. As a somewhat successful SE, I feel like I could re-start and get into almost any industry, but just wondering what you've seen in your years.
