  1. Do you mean better materials from other companies producing EVs? i purchased a Tesla because I could afford it and there is no scheduled maintenance save brakes/tires. And less maintenance on brakes due due to regenerative braking. It’s also fun and can crush any muscle car off a stoplight. Hydrogen fuel is a great idea but I cannot wait 10 years to purchase a vehicle. Nikola is having a heck of a time producing their vehicle. Current battery technology is being quickly updated and Tesla is purchasing those patents and/or already collaborating with those organizations. http
  2. Adding another link to a recent tweet that Musk sent about opening up their supercharger network to other EVs. If you are shopping around for an EV, now you are able to access a supercharger when on long drives. Just make sure the EV’s battery has the capability of supercharging. No one wants to wait for hrs to charge their battery when on a long trip. My perspective for Tesla supercharging is the cost is about 2/3 the expense for gas for the same # of miles. https://apple.news/Am-9ClVCkRuu7XJKJNhNqGQ
  3. I disagree a bit with this perspective. For Tesla, it seems their initial vehicle rollout may have QA issues(minor panel alignment, paint consistency, etc.). I waited about 6 months until they had corrected this before I ordered. When my Y was delivered at the dealer, I reviewed it with a checklist from a Tesla forum and there were only 2 very minor issues which the dealer tech immediately fixed. Virgil - this is a great forum for Tesla buyers: https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/#tesla-vehicles.47 I believe it is the other way around. There is a Tesla dealer/service center in Henriett
  4. Here’s a pic of my Y. Painted the rims to match the matte black on rest of car. Upgraded the calipers. Photo after PPF and ceramic coating were applied.
  5. The outside temp certainly has an impact on mileage range. The colder the outside temp, the more range is decreased. The EPA range was calculated in optimal conditions (flat surface, ~75 degrees so thst neither AC or heater is on) just like other cars.
  6. That was what I chose based on route planner (ABRP or Tesla) app. I would say it’s more interactive in determining stops. There are 1k superchargers across the US. I try to plan my stops after 3-4 hrs of driving. The Y long distance I have has 320 mile range. But you do not drive it down to 0 just like you do not drive an ICE until gas is empty. I usually have 40-80 miles left in battery when I stop.
  7. I picked up a Y last year. Most enjoyable car I have ever owned. Comfortable, fun driving, nice looking. I live in Central VA and just drove it the 2nd time up to Buf. 2 supercharger stops, 1 in Gettysburg and the other near Corning. Superchargers have been strategically located near retail establishments such as Sheetz, Panera, Dunkin Donuts, etc. Pull in & plug in and go to the restroom, get a drink or snack & stretch my legs. 20-25 mins later I take off. Stops are usually after 3.5-4 hrs of driving which works out well for me for breaks. Fortunately, they are free L2 chargers wit
  8. I have a question about the pronunciation of LeRoy…actually Le Roy. Do you find most people pronounce it lee-roy with emphasis on first syllable or use a French pronunciation of the name with a short e and emphasis on the second syllable?
  9. Damn…I live in Va but was just at Creekside this past Fri for a HS reunion. I had a Bills cap on…should have glanced into the kitchen.
  10. Kinda like the rest of us on TBD….😁
  11. Eligibility rules: Franchises are not required to be included as potential "Hard Knocks" participants if they 1.) have a first-year head coach, 2.) have made the playoffs in the last two seasons, or 3.) have appeared on the show in the past 10 years. Teams are, however, also allowed to volunteer for inclusion. I suspect Jerry, being Jerry, always volunteers the Cowboys. Makes me appreciate Bills ownership even more.
  12. Fairly simple to keep spectators away at a stadium or arena. What other sporting event is 2,000+ miles long?
  13. The Tour de France is going to sue the spectator that caused this to discourage other spectators from the same. Very selfish behavior by that spectator…all about getting exposure on tv without considering ramifications. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.independent.co.uk/sport/cycling/tour-de-france-crash-fan-sign-sue-b1873499.html%3famp Dogs & other pets/animals have been hit in the race. But animals do not have complex reasoning to make informed decisions but you knew that.
  14. Ditto…may try shrooms the next time I watch it…perhaps I need a wider brain to understand it. This guy from GQ tried to explain it but my head hurt just reading it. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.gq.com/story/tenet-explained/amp
  15. I could use some humor and I am willing to drop some $ just to read the business plan.
