RE: Another Tesla problem

"Tesla said the petition was "completely false" and was brought forward by a short-seller. Brian Sparks, who is currently shorting Tesla stock, according to CNBC, submitted the petition https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/inv/2020/INBC-DP20001-3494.pdf in September. "Over the past several years, we discussed with NHTSA the majority of the complaints alleged in the petition. In every case we reviewed with them, the data proved the vehicle functioned properly," Tesla said in a blog post https://www.tesla.com/blog/no-unintended-acceleration-tesla-vehicles. A spokesman for NHTSA on Monday declined to comment on Tesla's statement. The agency said last week it "will carefully review the petition and relevant data." Sparks could not be immediately reached for comment." Maybe the SEC should investigate these short sellers for manipulating the stock. This Brian Sparks could send 20M to Elon and 20M to Tesla to set things straight. https://finance.yahoo.com/news/tesla-says-no-unintended-acceleration-195911389.html Exactly! Musk burps while he is talking about Tesla and they want to bring him up for manipulating the stock. Here you have flagrant lies and nothing happens to him for doing it. Maybe Musk should sue him.

RE: Another Tesla problem

Other thing to consider. I did a job for a customer with a tesla and he told me he rarely, rarely ever uses his brake pedal. He said the gas pedal works if push it you go, and if you let off of it the car will stop. He said it took getting used to at first but now he barely needs the brake pedal. Could be instance in OP's link where the driver was doing that and in a panic situation stomped on the gas pedal instead of the brake because they were so used to never using the brake. You may be on to something. Changing basic driver controls should be approached with caution and only with significant study. Muscle memory is tough to reprogram, especially under a stressful situation where humans go back to basics. The risk IME is going back to ICE and not having these features and forgetting to hold the brake ( or the many other auto features). But you still use the brake pedal in EVs during an emergency, nothing has changed. Anyone have one pedal driving on their tractors, same concept. I have two pedal driving on one of my tractors; forward pedal, reverse pedal. My lawn mower has one pedal; push forward, go forward; push backward, go reverse. I can say I almost 99% of the time never touch the brake pedal on either of them.

RE: Folly of searching for used cargo trailer

I have bought two enclosed cargo trailers. Each time bought direct from manufacturer and had them build to my specs. Way, way cheaper than buying from local dealer and those "ready made" ones are usually junk. That's why they advertise them so cheap.

RE: Folly of searching for used cargo trailer

one way to weed out people is put your phone number in alpha numeric: 7three2..... Then only somebody who takes the time to read the ad and dial the number. I have sold quite a few things on CL and never had a problem (knock on wood).

RE: Believe it or not !!!

It's so obvious gramps and his 12 year old grand daughter were hardened criminals with a long rap sheet and that's why the cop had to 'cuff them while they checked their story.

RE: Folly of searching for used cargo trailer

Five for five on scammers. Finding HUNDREDS of new trailer ads, a few used trailers priced as much or more than used trailers. But OMG, the scammers... This is a typical response Thank you very much for getting back to me but I would like to clarifysome things first.I have the clear title and the bill of sale. All the paperwork notarized by a legal attorney are ready to be transferred under new owner's name. I also want to let you know that the price is firm, non negotiable $800.00.I am selling the trailer at this price because myhusband passed away not long ago (he was very sick) and this trailerbrings me bad memories and that's the reason why I want to sell itasap. Another reason for selling it is because I work in military andright now I'm on a military base (814 Medical Detachment-Bismarck) on Bismarck,ND. We are training and getting ready to leave the country. The trailer is already at the shipping company Fargo, ND ready for delivery because someone agreed to buy it,but in the end henever got the loan. For this reason, the shipping is already paid for.I will use e bay in this transaction for our protection. If you arenot aware of this program, you should know that it will allow you totest and inspect the trailer before paying me.The inspection periodwill be set to 7 days and I think that is enough time for you to makea decision about the trailer . If you won`t like my trailer you notifye bay and you send it back at my expense. But I assure you that won't be the case. If interested please include in your next email your contact info for eBay (full name, shipping address and phone number), so we can get the ball roll . I'm going to need one this summer as we adjust and start balancing out stuff between the B&M and our retirement park model. It would be bonus if I could find a good deal on a car hauler, which would allow me to set up wife's garage queen in a pseudo garage. That person is still in Bismark?? I got a response of that about 4 years ago when looking for a trailer. lol

RE: "Death Wobble"

The Rams were famous for this issue. We have 140 K miles on our Ram, and it showed “zero” evidence of front end issues......never even have done a front end alignment! Then, 2 1/2 weeks ago .....we experienced a tie-rod separation! Thankfully, we were going very slowly on a snow covered dirt road, and we weren’t towing our 20K pound 5th wheel.....only a utility trailer with our Polaris Ranger onboard! It’s a bit unnerving when you have absolutely “zero” control of your rig! I said all of that, to say all of this..... “get a good mechanic to do an inspection of your truck! memtb Did your truck fall under the drag link recall?

RE: My perception on real gas

I always get better milege right after wash/wax job on my truck....no data just a butt feeling Better mileage???IDK, however my vehicles always ride nicer, after a good detailing. Jerry My truck is always quieter after I wash and wax it...seriously.

RE: My perception on real gas

As an engineer, I hate "feelings" not supported by hard data. I perceived the turbo working a lot less and engine just seemed to be smoother. Not the experience I was expecting. Then as an engineer, what you perceive is just a "feeling" until you prove it! lol

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Yes I-Pace and eTron seemed to be closer to the same level and have just stalled at low volume. Bolt / LEAF and the other econoboxes are a bit overrated IMO and may never really take off. Mustang has a heritage that might get the Ford EV to critical mass. Makes me think of the original Mustang rollout where the ramp up was so fast cars were getting to the dealer with missing lights and some Falcon parts due to shortages. Focus EV was a disaster. "Econo-Boxes". That's the problem. Other companies are producing those things and nobody wants them except maybe pizza delivery drivers. Tesla produces actual cars that are the size of family sedans and look like family sedans. That's what people want.

RE: Do y'all see the IRONY here?

The "irony" is that there is a generator creating electricity in that photo because there is no other electricity around. The "irony" comes in to play when that generator is needed to power up the fuel pump to pump gas out of the storage tank into a vehicle in the same spot. I don't think there are many people who are going to siphon gas up out of a tank to fill their car.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Define "Society" One where a bunch of cave people run around living day to day or one where we conquer disease and have freedom to move about around the globe at will. We haven't conquered many diseases and a lot of other things. I mean the system and infrastructure that supports seven and a half billion souls on this rock. We have no example of anyone doing it without fossil fuels, we are only assuming that we can. There is no good reason not to try but we are in unknown territory as a species, maybe we are just a bunch of lemmings headed for the cliff. As to your original statement, I would say we have a society that is not sustainable without technology and energy. Society as we know it can't function without them. We agree and there is go guarantee that can happen without fossil fuels. You really should phrase that as "could have happened". Fossil fuels will slowly be in the rear view mirror as time goes on. Will it happen this year? Of course not. But the writing is on the wall.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Has anyone considered the possibility we have built a society that is not sustainable without fossil fuels? I once did a job for a retired Mobil Oil chemical engineer. Man o man did he go off on how future generations are going to say we, as a society, are going to be looked at for being so stupid to take a finite resource (oil) and just light it up and burn it away. Then he went on and on about how there are so many things that require oil down to the molecular level to make. One example he gave was there are quite a few drugs that can't be made without oil. Maybe so but that doesn't answer my question? Define "Society" One where a bunch of cave people run around living day to day or one where we conquer disease and have freedom to move about around the globe at will.

RE: Yellow window frame on door. Ugly. What to do?

Window directly to left I can see out just fine. Window to right is bathroom. Most door windows have frosted glass so why have it??? Ours is clear. Frosty would not be of any valve. chevman Frosted lets light in, but keeps nosey eyes out.

RE: I expect a 10 cent price increase in diesel

Price of diesel always inches up in the winter here in the northeast because they divert resources to make fuel oil. Now if the winter isn't that bad, the price will start dropping in mid February and come spring if they over produced there will be more of a drop. Fuel oil in my area has started a slow decline. Where there is natural gas, people are converting and where there isn't, people are converting to propane. Way less maintenance costs involved.
