Model 3 Dual Motor Performance Edition

Model 3 Dual Motor Performance Edition

At last, Elon Musk tweeted from his account that the Dual Motor and Performance versions of the Model 3 will be ready for order by end of next week. Many reservation holders delayed their orders for these features. On a sad note, it appears that the Air Suspension found on the Model S and X will not be available for the Performance Edition of the Model 3 until next year at best.

I will be interested to see what the 0-60 times are on the dual motor and performance models respectively, as well as the range gain/loss. Stay tuned for updates in the future and for a future comparison between the Model 3 Dual Motor and Model S Dual Motor.



Tesla Releases Video Teasing Possible Model S Refresh and Model Y

Tesla released a fun two-minute video detailing its various ongoing efforts. With this video, lots of hints and easter eggs were dropped. Let’s go through them now.

What’s under the covers?! Model Y or a Model S refresh?

Tesla has hinted that they have been working on the Model Y. That being said, Elon said that they are in the early design stages and have not spent a “significant amount of money” on it yet. This could lead some to believe that this is a Model S refresh. The Model S has been largely unchanged since it debuted in 2012, aside from the removal of the front fascia and some interior tweaks. It is certainly overdue and competition in this segment is starting to heat up.

Upgrading Old Computers Under $350

upgrading-old-computers-under-350

Warning:  Random post, but this may benefit those trying to upgrade old machines as cheaply and effectively as possible.

Story:  In 2006, I had two very old computers, in fact they are still old.  “Whiplash” was a custom build running a P5B Deluxe MB (533 – 1067 Mhz FSB), X1800 GTO video card (PCI 2.0), Pentium D 2.67 LGA 775 (Overclocked to 3.4Ghtz), 2 GB DDR2-5300 667Mhz RAM, 180GB 7200RPM HD, and a 500W power supply (Combined with a heater, I could throw a circuit breaker in a room, thanks to the X1800 needing 450W alone)  “Goldfish” was an older computer, stock with a PTGD1-LA “Goldfish” MB (533 Mhz FSB), X300 128 MB Video Card (AGP), 1 GB of DDR-3200 400 Mhz RAM, 200 GB 5400 RPM HD, and a 400W power supply.   Time took it’s toll, as well as other unfortunate experiments and incidents that rendered them inactive (The reason they could not be used was because the HD’s kept crashing)
