    I don't know about this because you're losing top end acceleration and speed in an electric car that's already fast I would have put the transmission to a electric motor for more torque

    you know what could be a good idea? to use the oversized screen (since no longer wont be used any way because its broken) to mount the Gear knob shifter, like a Renault 4L Gear know .. i bet you've never saw one. One of the most well designed 90's European vehicle. or is it 80's? i don't know. Thank God there is Wikipedia. Other good examples of European Beauty: Ciroen 2cv (litterally means it has only 2hp) Fian Uno (Or if you would like more speed, Fiat Uno Turbo i.e) and of course, the Tar smasher: Opel Corsa A Cheers

    I've said for a long time... this is the greatest idea since sliced bread, for California hot rodders. You can't fail a car for emissions when there's literally no emissions certification for the chassis. It's just too bad the Tesla weighs so much... but the awesome aero coefficient makes up for it.

    Just out of curiousity. Could you not somehow (if you know someone, or yourself), hack into the computer of your tesla and enable fastcharge, and block them from having any access to control your car? What kind of shtty company has the audacity to remove features from a car you purchased. Its your property. Isn't it? Or is there not an aftermarket solution to this? IF not, there should be... hmmm?
