    Tank Turn Compromise? (attn Rivian engineers)

    Ethics aside, tank turn (whether by Rivian of MB) seems like it could go sideways quickly. What if you're on a slant or a slope? What if one wheel catches on something mid-turn? The tie rod is a well known weak point. I'm sure you can engineer around the problem, but at that point, there'd...

    Best view yet of Underbody Shield (R1 rollover)

    Not to be that guy, but that's not the reinforced underbody shield, is it? Maybe if they had the extra 150lb below the center of gravity, the truck wouldn't have flipped.

    Native NACS Charger Overrated?

    Yes, with an adapter, you can use (some) Tesla chargers the same way a Tesla would. Here's a good demo video:

    More details here: https://electrek.co/2024/05/01/elon-musk-throwing-weight-tesla-wrecking-ball/ Elon was MAD that Tinucci pushed back on his arbitrary % cut. Also, the head of HR is out...

    Entire Tesla Supercharger team fired (Update: Elon Musk says supercharger network growth will continue). ** ⚠️ ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS **

    Regardless of the business case for any reduction or restructure, the manner in which this was communicated (3 AM email to senior execs.), the dire warning to other executives to accelerate layoffs, and the promise of future chaos do not inspire confidence. There are real costs to having a...

    Entire Tesla Supercharger team fired (Update: Elon Musk says supercharger network growth will continue). ** ⚠️ ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS **

    It's an insane move. Allowing manic episodes of one man to go unchecked and light significant portions of the company on fire -- it's indicative of organizational rot. I'd guess that it'll be walked back, with some of the team being allowed to "reapply" for their jobs. But the compounding...

    Tesla FSD Full Self Driving & Rivian ?

    This is a strawman. No one has brought up Elon pejoratively. The discussion has been largely substantive. If anyone is arguing in bad faith, it's those with a persecution complex.
