Tesla Delays Launch of Model X Until Q3 2015

mojo-raisin Re:Still a niche company (111 comments)

I drive a 2014 pure EV, and I make a modest/decent wage. I live in the Chicago, and I charge from my apartment. It really is pretty easy, and I don't have to deal with gas and combustion engines.

So you're wrong.

Tesla's Next Auto-Dealer Battleground State: Georgia

mojo-raisin Re:state still dealing with Tesla (157 comments)

Uh yeah. Fermion is a pure anti Tesla, anti EV bigot. That's why he has been on my enemies list for a while. Is a great /. Feature that outs those in love with the status quo.

Tesla Aims For $30,000 Price, 2017 Launch For Model E

mojo-raisin Re:The main problem with all elec (247 comments)

Umm. No.

I drive a all electric Nissan Leaf, and I don't even have a garage. I have outlets on the outside of my house, and the Leaf charging cable is prob at least 15 ft long.

I charge at night with no garage.

Toyota's Fuel Cell Car To Launch In Japan Next March

mojo-raisin Re:ADI (216 comments)

I've been driving a Leaf for a month, and I agree. I *never* wait to refuel. I just plug in at night. It's so civilized.

mojo-raisin Hydrogen Refueling Map? (216 comments)

Could I get a map of hydrogen refueling stations?

I want to plan all of my driving to remain at least a quarter mile away from those things.

One big "boom," and no one will ever drive these things again.

Are US Hybrid Sales Peaking Already?

mojo-raisin Re:Why would I buy a Prius (377 comments)

Your opinion is just that. Your opinion :)

And quite different from my opinion :)

I drove a sport A4 with a "engine," "transmission," and all that fun stuff.

Now I drive a Nissan Leaf, and find the low speed torque, and the ability to concentrate on just speed and driving to be way more fun that a loud, dangerous, and inelegant ICE.

Also, ICE produce lots of deadly fumes. I can sit in my "idling" Leaf. You can't sit in your idling ICE/death box. :)

Russia Bans US Use of Its Rocket Engines For Military Launches

mojo-raisin suspend GPS? (522 comments)

How does one suspend GPS? Russia doesn't control outer space above their country.

ps - Elon Musk must be chuckling.

Great choice. I have a j-frame and a glock. The j-frame is my preferred carry for the same reason you gave.

mojo-raisin Re:Flawed reasoning (765 comments)

Having a gun fail is bad.

We have a Right to functioning guns and "wish[es] to avoid is for something bad" are irrelevant. I always want my semis to work. Always. What someone else wishes is up to them.

It will happen in 4 years. Bury your head in the oil, petrol-boy, if you want to ignore the Tesla EV onslaught.

Mercedes Pooh-Poohs Tesla, Says It Has "Limited Potential"

mojo-raisin Re:Switching from Mercedes to Tesla after $12K bil (360 comments)

Ha. That really rocks.

I'm saving up for a cheaper Tesla model (or used Model S) in 2017. If my Audi makes it that long. The automatic transmission sometimes forgets which gear it's in, and can't shift anymore. As Teslas are single gear-direct drive, they don't have that problem.

Congrats!

What If the Next Presidential Limo Was a Tesla?

mojo-raisin Re:Armor (330 comments)

The battery is actually double platted with metal that is quite protective.

There is no car with a better safety score than the Model S. The Model X could be far superior with minor modes compared to any Caddy.
