    Default Tesla vehicle discussion. No Elon or stock chat.

    Thread to talk about the vehicles only to avoid the convo on stock price and the Elon loving and hating.

    The company conversation is located here: https://forums.beyond.ca/threads/373280-Tesla-Motors

    - - - Updated - - -

    I'll start the convo.

    What do you guys typically see for range reduction when it is -30?

    I haven't seen any range reduction in my S, it also doesn't sit outside in the weather for any significant length of time. I usually keep my battery charged to about 497 kilometers of range, never come close to depleting the battery.

    I’ve found if I leave the X outside during these last few weeks I don’t have any regenerative braking what so ever.

    If you plan to leave it outside, set your charge to finish right when you have to leave for work so the battery is warm and ready to go.

    I have no input to provide other than finding out Tesla has a Sentry mode that records on all cameras. How many cams does it have? That is badass. Only found this out from that Facebook post being shared around of that dude keying the Tesla owners car in Edmonton. Kinda odd he just drives up, keys it and goes off. Maybe the Tesla cut him off bad or something.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    Front, 2 sides and a rear all record when someone comes within close proximity of the car. All the lights will flash and a sentry dot will flash on the main screen.

    I seen something like that on Reddit, was a compilation of a bunch of people getting busted by those cameras.

    OT: I have been looking at possibly trying out a pre-owned model. Which ones have the Ludacris mode? The one I was seriously looking at was a P85D model. Is it smart choice to go pre-owned and try one out?

    Pre "Performance" models, if you have the two lines under the model designation, it has ludicrous mode. Now it's just called performance model, instead of long range.

    Went in because we dropped off the E63 for service at Lonestar. Was there to test drive one because the wife hates putting gas in the car. I ended up buying one instead cause, holy fuck, it is fast.

    Got the performance. Skipping the FSD for now.

    Welcome to the club! Come join the Tesla Owners Club of Alberta (TOCA) group on Facebook too if you haven't already and be sure to join in on the TOCA get-togethers. You'll often catch us doing Auto-Summon races.

    Although V8s have their obvious sound benefits, the Performance Model 3 still gives me more thrills per mile. I ran an 11.7 @ 118mph in the 1/4 at one of the past Half Mile events so it's no slouch! That was before the 5% boost in power (free over-the-air update!) and the much lighter WedsSport wheels I put on this past summer too.

    If anyone has questions about the car or EVs in general, let me know (or if you need a referral code ). I've had my Performance Model 3 for just over a year now and can speak to its drive through all seasons, including to ski hills & back, road trips to the Okanagan, mods, daily charging, Level 1/2/3 charging, etc, etc...

    Here's a recent pic of mine:

    It's a vinyl wrap actually; base colour is the flat black ("free" at the time). 3M 1080 in Gloss Fiery Orange. Looks amazing in person when it's clean!

    Sell it and get a Model 3! They start at $45k and if you keep the hardware trims down under $55k, there's still currently a federal incentive of $5k. Take advantage before the Libs get booted next week!

    Use my referral code instead. I can show you all how to use the fart generator. I can also fart on demand if required.

    Lol, I've got a lower user # so I'm more Beyond OG! I'll one-up Rural_Juror and let anyone Netflix 'n Chill inside my car (yes, all Model 3's now have built-in Netflix streaming)!

    In all seriousness, if there are any serious Tesla buyers out there, feel free to PM me for a test drive in my 480hp-ish Performance model if you'd like. EVs have crazy serious g-forces when accelerating!

    Can i race you with my Jeep? 11.7 is hauling ass! I'm curious how it would stack up and I haven't been lucky enough to race anything with it yet.
    I like neat cars.

    My buddy has the new Tesla 3 Dual Motor with the performance package, I can arrange a race with him if you want.

    Absolutely! If yours is stock, I think it'll be a pretty even race. I'll definitely take you from the start but you'll catch up to me near the back half of the 1/4 and fully outright in the 1/2. Were you the black Trackhawk at the last Half Mile? I assume you know James M. with his ridiculous 1200+hp white Trackhawk?

    Performance models from pre-Oct. 2018 had unlimited free supercharging.

    Typo? Their site shows 55k plus tax as the base unless I'm reading it wrong

    There is a short range version that I think you have to go into a Tesla Store to order.

    There was a used Model S that came with unlimited charging. I didn't even know that was an offering!

    It's definitely the future but I'm sure battery technology is just waiting to be improved.
