RE: Border closings

So are you talking about a one way opening? Canadians can come for extended vacations in the US but US citizens can’t vacation in Canada? I think you would need to make it more like US citizens going to Alaska, if a Canadian wants to snowbird they must reach their destination in four days and NO dawdling. :b Dave Although I think that would work policing it would be tough. But I agree. It’s the daily cross border traffic that has the most risk.

RE: Border closings

Are you sure there is such a deal? You can be sure that if the Pres. wants to open the US border it will open . I’d be fine with that as long as they keep the Canadian side closed.

RE: Border closings

If that is the case; does that mean that the snow birds from Canada won't be able to leave ? If yes there are going to be a lot of unhappy people from Ontario. I think half the owners in our park in Key largo are from Ontario Guy Canadian Snowbirds can leave...by air only. The US will not allow Canadians to cross the US border right now. Part of a reciprocal agreement between both countries to limit the spread. This has large support among the Canadian population. Wait. What?? Leaving "by air" and landing in the US doesn't count as "crossing the border?" By what logic? -Speak You are asking the wrong guy. Ask the US goverment. Canada has no restrictions on Canadians leaving the country.

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

Okay, let me see if I have this straight: They're comparing the Taycan Turbo S, a real live car vs a Lucid Air, an imaginary car, vs Model S Plaid, also an imaginary car. Seriously??!! And really, so much fuzz over .4 to .1 seconds, well, unless I'm going to race it for money.Uh, my point was that two of the three cars don't exist. Heh heh. True. But in all fairness, Tesla does have the reputation of producing what they say they are going to produce...EVENTUALLY. LOL. :). Even the 35000 unicorn car eventually made it to market. Woohoo. :).

Seriously??!!Lucid is a stretch, however Plaid based on an existing platform is much closer to reality. And I agree any sub 12 second car is borderline dangerous on the street. 150+ mph seems unnecessary to me. The market for super high performance sport sedans has and always be there, albeit pretty small. And companies like Porsche, Tesla etc will continue to duke it out. Zero to 60 in 5 is actually pretty fast and will suit most. I don’t know about Lucid but I would think Plaid S will be on the shelves for Christmas. Just a guess. My son-in-law owned a Lambo Aventdor, his cycle of high-performance car owners do really. obsess about this. Then my daughter arrives with her Tesla X and everyone shuts up.:R :)

RE: GM releases more info on their Electric vehicle line up.

The 1/2 ton electric and Nikola truck drivetrain are somewhere in this bunch. Looks like they are getting serious. I’ll guess at mid 2022 for production of the half ton. Which isn’t that far away. https://electrek.co/2020/09/16/gm-lineup-ultium-electric-drive-units/ So you are considering the GMC Hummer a 3/4 or one ton? Will be unveiled on 10/20/2020 and built in 2021! I actually thought the Hummer was more halfway between a 1/2 ton and 3/4 ton. But trucks have changed a lot in the last twenty years and weight class has shifted a bit. Wow. Even if they build in the end of 2021 that’s only a year away. I think the badger will be more towards 2022. The badger doesn’t appeal to me. The Hummer does as I like iconic looking vehicles. Wife is set on a cybertruck. I’m not going to win that one. :) It would be cool if GM could strike a deal with a major charge network like EVGO or charge point and put some serious money into a comprehensive North American charge program. Ford has done this to a very limited degree with Greenlots. Unfortunately it is mostly just on the billing side and not the actual infrastructure side. Volkswagen is all in on the Electrify America and Electrify Canada networks. Our little town has one of these coming. Tesla is installing 9 non Tesla DC fast charging stations at its new 56 station Supercharger in Firebaugh California. Sign of things to come? JMHO I

RE: Border closings

With the way so many people of the US seem determined to ignore the covid recommendations and warnings, no surprise they do not want us crossing the border. I wouldn't either. You are watching too much news ! They love to pick out someone or a group with no masks on and show it while they completely disregard the thousands who are obeying the recommendations. Just this morning while my wife was in the supermarket and I waited in the car, I watched the ones going into the store with masks on and out of about 35 people only one did not have a mask. Guy I don’t know. I watched footage of a key US political figures rally yesterday and there was mostly unmasked people attending. Just sayin.

RE: Flying Floating Flooring

Have any of you ever installed floating flooring in your RV and glued it in place? No need for hundreds to pile on with the mfgr said this and that and no you can’t do it because the warranty is gone and yada yada yada. I know one isn’t “supposed“ to glue floating floors. I’m asking in this context: - Floating floors are designed to float because of expansion; the reason a 1/4” gap is left around the perimeter. - BUT, is expansion really an issue in such a narrow installation like a motor home??? The widest part of my RV’s floor is about 6’. I understand the necessity of considering expansion in a home with a large room. But what if one were simply doing a four foot wide hallway; which in most cases are around three to six feet wide. If one could glue a hall, one should be able to glue in an RV. I don’t think the weather extreme argument holds or the manufacturer would warn against installing their products in vacation homes where inside is like outside when no one is in residence and then fired up the furnace/AC a few times a year. I’ll add a line or two about why I’m asking: I’m concerned that the rollers on the slide out may push the flooring ahead of it, and the worst case scenario would be when they push the flooring till it stops against the far wall it could then push the flooring until it “accordions”. When a roller under load is given enough inertia to move it has to be forced to roll; it doesn’t want to by itself; it digs in like a kid being pushed towards the bathroom to brush their teeth, then it will roll. If the floor is glued this concern doesn’t exist. Yes...sort of. I mitigated the floaty thing by fastening the first board on one side. That was 10 years ago. This stuff is as tough as it comes. Dogs, wet feet, all season, (we were full time for years). Not sure if this is what you wanted to hear but its my contribution. Side note, we installed the underfloor heating pads. Total of a few hundred watts but feet are always toasty in winter. And yes we installed under couch lighting. Nice for movie nights etc. This is in our 2003 Revolution we have had since new. Looks as good now as it did then...at least inside. Paint job is kinda shot. Meh. Still runs great after 155K on the clock. Woohoo. :) https://live.staticflickr.com/564/31907144006_a7fd57c41d_c.jpg

Looks like Kenworth is jumping into the short haul fray. Good to see. They’ll bring their own flavour to the table. Lots of applications for this kind of short haul and medium haul market. https://electrek.co/2020/09/13/kenworth-electric-trucks/

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

I though Semi was now late 2021. Yep. That was pushed to 2021 last year. Speculation is 8 to ten months after Texas Giga is done. In my mind that means probably 2022. Jmho.

RE: Cybertruck has 400 horses

Sam. I'm continuing to do research on the whole towing a trailer behind our TesLa. Just watched a video that confirms no Autopilot when trailer mode selected on a model X. Suspect it will be the same on the cybertruck. You can still select TACC (traffic aware cruise control) which is essentially autopilot without autosteer. In my mind this makes logical sense. Just a heads up. Cheers. Thanks. again @Reisende. Understood. Kind of logical for me too since it will be tons of programming work, and maybe extra sensor extension to the trailer, for FSD to include it in. the maneuvering. Just read possibility or estimated drop out rate for those who reserved the Cybertruck. So I. might get my unit on Production + Day 1, LOL.:p;) Woohoo. On the other hand it may force our decision earlier than we want. We’ll see. Looks like even earlier. Latest is Tesla is moving up production to May 2021.. That kicks it up a notch. Trying to beat ford and Rivian to market? Non-compete really if they can't meet and match Tesla's price point. True. And just a heads up. Last nights software update has a couple new things. Speed limit sign recognition on autopilot You get a reminder bing when you are sitting at a stoplight and it turns green. Warning tones if you are going to run a stop light or stop sign. A few other minor things security related. Software updates every two weeks now. Not sure what’s happening. Used to be about once per month. Cheers. Way cool! Still thinking whether it's worth the $7K, lol. I hear ya. That 7K is for FSD. Autopilot is standard on all Tesla’s except the 35000 dollar SR. Some of these updates are included in basic Autopilot.

RE: Nikola and GM team up to make 900 HP Electric Supertruck.

GM seems pretty focused on getting their Ultium battery out there. This might be the first of more to come co-operative projects with other companies to speed up entry in the EV market, and specifically light truck market. Ford to some degree is doing the same thing with Rivian. The only light truck manufacture not showing any interest in EV’s is Ram. I’m not sure what their strategy is here and can’t find anything on google indicating they even have a comprehensive program. Are they just planning to slowly give up market share and maybe just concentrate on a different market? The market of anything with a tail pipe is going to get smaller quicker as we approach 2030 as new laws and regulations kick in.

RE: Nikola and GM team up to make 900 HP Electric Supertruck.

Tesla stock down 21% today, down 34% this month. Competition is on the way, VW's first MEB platform cars are coming out in the new year and look like they could provide some real competition for the 3 and Y. The looks of the ID3 is kinda cool. I’m not sure why they decided not to sell it on this side of the pond. The ID4 and Audi Q4 e-tron SUV's and e-tron Sportback are due out next year in North America.. The MEB platform has high floor and low floor configurations which allow it to be used for sedans and SUV's. I think the ID4 will find a market. Checks a lot of boxes for the medium sized SUV bunch including a towing capacity. Looking forward to seeing it. As long as you aren't towing very far. In Europe it’s important to have tow ratings as they don’t have pickups. Local camping, dump runs, picking up stuff at a furniture store or lumber yard. Many businesses have small trailers to loan or rent. There is actually no guarantee that the North American version will have the tow rating. A ton of European made cars have tow ratings in Europe but not here. And it works the other way as well. Even a model 3 is not rated here but has a 990 kg tow rating in Europe. Same car, even has the hardware, just no rating. Cheers.
