The usual silliness. Tesla’s 62 stall Santa Monica V3 Supercharger hits speed bump, LA housing crisis takes priorityhttps://www.teslarati.com/tesla-supercharger-v3-santa-monica-emergency-interim-zoning-ordinance/Recall the project, the largest V3 Supercharger station in the world with 62-stalls, solar canopies, battery backup and customer restrooms was approved by the Planning Commission on March 3rdThe final approval by the City Council however took a u-turn for a cliff.Why? Housing.Santa Monica and Los Angeles is in the midst of a housing crisis with high rents and undersupply The housing crunch occupied much of the Planning Commissioner’s debate, discussed 2-shows ago; commissioners wanted Tesla to build housing units on top of the super chargers.Noelani Derickson of Tesla responded “Tesla is a car manufacturer, we’re not in the housing business.The Supercharger project has been included in an Emergency Interim Zoning Ordinance for potential housing in Los Angeles.The city is working to change rules governing housing project density & profitability leading to more construction.In the end City Council actions will likely lead to the project’s demise, but what can you do?There are almost 1,000 Tesla owners in Santa Monica, if they wrote to the Santa Monica City CouncilPlot Twist: Elon Musk Just Had Tesla Launch a Social Platform (Don’t think we got to this story before?

Episode 195: FSD!
Breaking News: ELON Opening up FSD BETA Program (on Twitter)Why do we not know how many people are in the beta? 10x is kinda meaningless without that data. Watched an interesting video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0pAOist3UY< showing an intersection and unprotected left turn when the opposing driver did not take the right of way and was an indicator of how the FSD reacts to that. Missed an entrance to a driveway and navigated to the next driveway Attempted to drive FSD into a self wash - Successful or not? Guesses from the boys!! Interesting edge case - can you guys think of any others like this? Does not slow down for the dips and bumps in the road - Would that be a warranty repair? Interesting thing to discuss. Delivery Truck double parked - How did the FSD do here? Will Robert be getting FSD beta?When Tesla expanded FSD beta from social media influencers (was in 2-phases, 20 then 100) to all Tesla Owner Club leadership in early November 2020, expected users would increase from 100 -> 1,000. I did not receive confirmation though I asked for it, chalked it up to disarray at Tesla. Turns out nearly half of club leaders have legacy cars without the necessary hardware.How you Talking Tesla Nation can get on the list:Email firstname.lastname@example.org include VIN & if you paid for FSD (a requirement for the first waves of Beta testers) or ….https://insideevs.com/news/492646/tesla-doubling-self-driving-fsd-beta-now/Tesla's CEO Elon Musk announced that the Full Self-Driving (FSD) beta program size is doubling now with the new 8.2 software updatehttps://www.tesmanian.com/blogs/tesmanian-blog/tesla-will-add-download-beta-button-to-participate-in-testing-fsd-beta-on-in-car-displays Talking Tesla Twitter Poll: If you are a two car family and looking to get your second EV what sort of range would you be looking for?Looks like a Mel-phenomenon, “longer is better”Tesla’s yoke is no joke:https://insideevs.com/news/491176/photos-tesla-model-s-plaid-yoke-steering/ & https://insideevs.com/news/492239/video-tesla-model-s-plaid-steering-yoke-randy-pobst/Looks like the yoke will be an option after original sightings are were all just full circle steering wheel:Photo by The Killowatts https://t.co/olTCz0bSbU?amp=1Randy Pobst and The Killowatts:Prefers a round wheelConcerned about turning more than 90 degreesWill be AWK in parkingThinks maybe a quicker turning wheel will doCould be speed dependent as wellWE posted a couple videos on TT twitter
