    The "New Toys" Thread

    So my last proper PC build has been a while... and while I have upgraded pieces over time (cooling, some SSDs, new GPU most recently), the core of this machine has stayed untouched for incredible 10 years. It's done awesome work and has still run current game titles and allowed me to do my work...

    Same here. Went for the iPad Air (3rd/current gen, 10.5") over the base 10.2" because of the CPU - the Air sports the iPhone XS/XR-gen A12, whereas the base runs on the older A10 from the iPhone 7. Which is still more than fast enough for day-to-day use, but since I'm likely to keep this thing...

    Ownership Verified: The wait was long enough: leviathan's Tesla Model 3 Performance

    No, the video editor had a Mavic of his own, and a couple GoPros that he stuck on various cars. I thought about bringing the racing drone, but it would've been a ton of extra hassle, and the area wasn't really large enough to do any interesting flying in the first place.

    As promised, here's the video my colleague made about the safety training thing. Warning: it's all in German.

    Getting back on topic of the actual car for a moment :) Small update on the current goings on. There's basically two things. Thing one: been to a driver's safety course organized by a coworker for his Tesla Youtube channel viewers and colleagues. Was quite fun, and an interesting comparison to...

    If there ever was an undertaking worth a GoFundMe, this is it.

    So are the superchargers and other HPCs, where blocking charges apply. They are not intended as parking - only short-term, toilet break or a coffee is ok; full-on lunch with a group is stretching it. If I'm parking for an extended period, I choose a spot with a slower charger without blocking...

    Unverified Ownership Extension cords needed - 2015 Model S

    Congrats! Can't believe it finally made it :) Make sure that the UMC is a 3-phase one, as they come with the Model S and X! "Brand new" could be one of those that come with Model 3s that are single-phase - with those, even with the red plug it'll still only charge at 3.7kW max on a single...

    Tesla Model Y protoype filmed on highway

    I really, really hope Tesla pulls the same thing as they did with the Model X - changing the front fascia on the final unveiling of the production car (before that the X prototypes all wore the same "fake grille" front as the pre-facelift Model S). The car is larger than the Model 3 and from all...

    So far, that hasn’t ever happened to me. What did happen was the opposite: „Sorry, I’ll be right back - need to go unplug the car, it’s already full and will accumulate blocking charges while we finish eating unless I move it“.

    You like graphs? Have another one then :) This is from a recharge at another Ionity station. My free 6 months of Supercharging have run out, so now charging at Ionity is actually my best option for long-range driving - it's both cheaper (8€ per charge vs. 0.33€/kWh = ~20€ for 10-90%) and...

    The "New Toys" Thread

    Company phone contract renewal time: got myself an iPhone 11. Decided against the more expensive "Pro" option this time - it's really just the OLED screen and third camera (telephoto) for 350€ added price, not worth it for me imho. So far quite happy - moving stuff over from the old phone was...

    Ownership Verified: Oh no, they've got another one - leviathan's MX-5 NC

    In fact I enjoy it so much, I've gone and rented a second garage spot for it :p Had notices hung up around the neighborhood for a while, finally a couple days ago someone called and offered an unused spot, in the same level where the Tesla lives even. Signed and got the keys today. Sure, the...

    LiCO2 Battery with 7 times the energy density of Li-Ion.

    With a Tesla Supercharger V3 and the battery down to around 10%, you get about ~55-60% added in a 15 minute stop in a Model 3 Long Range. Ionity stations in Europe are very nearly as fast, the by now ubiquitous V2 Superchargers a little slower, but not much - the same range gain takes just over...

    Unverified Ownership Extension cords needed - 2015 Model S

    Ugh. This is a dark side of Tesla: unless you have a very specific contact for whatever you want from them, there is typically no way to get hold of anybody, short of going to the store and raising a stink in person (and even that has a varying success rate). If that specific contact happens to...

    Cazzo! We escaped the swiss and survived italy - 2019 Swisstaly Roadtrip photo/video thread

    Ok, let's finish this chronological photos thing. Last post of the series: Day 7 (and bonus Day 8 aka transit to Ringmeet). As mentioned in my Day 6 post, I went to bed that night not having any idea what I'd do the following morning. As I got up, that hasn't really changed. The weather stayed...

    A friend of mine does that with Telegram, it's incredibly annoying. You write something, it takes a day or so until he opens up the app and actually receives the message, and then you have about a 10 second window to actually have a conversation before he's closed it again. Some apps (or at...

    Ownership Verified: The wait was long enough: leviathan's Tesla Model 3 Performance

    Oh, top speed. I finally got to verify that the car was unlocked after spoiler installation yesterday. It was limited to 234 km/h before, now it happily climbed to 262 on an empty Autobahn straight: Note the rated range drop to shit immediately as I start accelerating properly at ~22:46:20 :)...

    Ownership Verified: The wait was long enough: leviathan's Tesla Model 3 Performance

    That's what mine actually does at high speeds - front motor is an async machine that is switched off unless used for acceleration or regen braking, for cruising only rear motor is used as it's more efficient by design. Front motor assembly is still always there as added weight, and the front...
