    STAR CHASER11 muaj më parë

    Tesla is like Lamborghini and Ferrari, they want your vin. number before they send parts. I was working in a shop on a race track. We had a client who wanted to build four Ferrari 308 race car's. So he ordered a reproduction fiberglass body. We cleaned up this body all bolted together and put in months to get it perfect in shape and fit. Then we pulled moulds. We built four body's for four cars. The client was a Ferrari dealer. He had to use vin numbers to get the parts, engine's, front window's part's, and other things. When the first engine came in a box it was put on a dyno and it blew up, $50,000 gone. The second engine was placed on the dyno with the help of a Ferrari technician, it too blew up, $50,000 gone. The third engine made it, by "GODS LUCK ONLY". Ferrari doesn't want a home-made race car with real Ferrari parts on them. Rich is right when he said "Tesla want's to protect their image", so does "Ferrari and Lamborghini". I think it's the same with Tesla, but just to fix something simple and they say "Sorry your model is not covered" is very sad, investors should be warned first. Customers got SCREWED. This is why their is "NO REPAIR SHOPS OTHER THAN CERTIFIED ONES", they want you to buy another car and let the others "ROT IN A FIELD". Rich, carry on with your new business, you have a lot of HAPPY CUSTOMERS, SCREW TESLA. ────────────────────░███░ ───────────────────░█░░░█░ ──────────────────░█░░░░░█░ ─────────────────░█░░░░░█░ ──────────░░░───░█░░░░░░█░ ─────────░███░──░█░░░░░█░ ───────░██░░░██░█░░░░░█░ ──────░█░░█░░░░██░░░░░█░ ────░██░░█░░░░░░█░░░░█░ ───░█░░░█░░░░░░░██░░░█░ ──░█░░░░█░░░░░░░░█░░░█░ ──░█░░░░░█░░░░░░░░█░░░█░ ──░█░░█░░░█░░░░░░░░█░░█░ ─░█░░░█░░░░██░░░░░░█░░█░ ─░█░░░░█░░░░░██░░░█░░░█░ ─░█░█░░░█░░░░░░███░░░░█░ ░█░░░█░░░██░░░░░█░░░░░█░ ░█░░░░█░░░░█████░░░░░█░ ░█░░░░░█░░░░░░░█░░░░░█░ ░█░█░░░░██░░░░█░░░░░█░ ─░█░█░░░░░████░░░░██░ ─░█░░█░░░░░░░█░░██░█░ ──░█░░██░░░██░░█░░░█░ ───░██░░███░░██░█░░█░ ────░██░░░███░░░█░░░█░ ──────░███░░░░░░█░░░█░ ──────░█░░░░░░░░█░░░█░ ──────░█░░░░░░░░░░░░█░ ──────░█░░░░░░░░░░░░░█░ ──────░█░░░░░░░░░░░░░█░

    Can you start a modification for Tesla for a quick battery swap using 6 modules, low range, mid range and long range battery packs. Why is there a need to carry that whole battery pack when work is only 20 miles round trip. This method will swap your batteries in minutes instead of waiting and wasting productive hours charging. Leave your old batteries and get new juiced pack in 10 minutes faster than gasoline pumping. This way, depleted batteries can be tested, calibrated and charged without the fear of being stranded. Service vehicles can jumpstart cars on the road without towing

    You are doing a good job! I also like the job you and the crew with "Simone", Built; When she came up with the "TRUCKLA"!!! A job well done!! Although don't think everyone is so "Ready or Happy" to get involve or want to buy one of those Electric Tesla cars; I live not too far from the Tesla, assembly plant in Fremont California. I am located here in Oakland California. I am reading that in Germany, B.M.W. Buyers really like their "Gasoline" Powered cars, Just like I like our CTS/V Cadillac, sedan with a 6 speed stick transmission! These kinds of cars are fun to drive and feel good, when you put them through the paces, like at a track we have here at Sears Point Race Ways, The Tesla, is a very fast car, But that Cts/V Cadillac, "Will run all of the "Electricity" out one of those Tesla, cars, and also make sure you know how to drive, or you just may run to the charging station for some more "Juice"!!!

  • Eric Rashid

    I know you like to bash Elon a little but Tesla is trying to bring a product to market that basically hasn't ever been on the market, they can't just buy parts from other manufactures and put them in their vehicles in order to mass distribute because everything is made out of pot metal for a petrol motive... This isn't the correct video, that I admit, but they are likely having issues freeing up parts in order to facilitate repairs, and like you've mentioned in other videos he acknowledged that people still need to learn to rebuild and or repair EVs ... Given their massive demand and slow talent acquisition it's likely just an issue of man power. Have you ever considered acquiring a small furnace and casting parts from a mold in order to replace parts that you're having a hard time finding? The tolerances for most structural parts and functional are pretty tight but given that the part isn't deformed you could simply piece the parts together to make a mold of the original part (aluminum is fairly brittle so it tends to break before it bends). Propane furnaces are actually pretty affordable because they are so simple in operation and aluminium having a relatively low melting point is actually easier to work with than you might think. A little sand, silicone, and wax could go a long way in making repairs more affordable in the event parts acquisition becomes difficult. Especially given that Elon invited assistance in repairs to ensure the longevity and name of his cars I doubt you'll find much retort in such a practice. You could even weld certain pieces with a tig torch or build a larger furnace if cost evaluation becomes necessary. The furnace is little more than a temperature controlled and insulated chamber, just add a gas regulator and burner, viola. Even with the motors you really shouldn't have to go as far as rewinding the motor, the litz wire they use has such an accumulative conductive cross section they shouldn't arc often (have you ever seen signs of such?), just replace the controller and clean the contact points to save some dough.

  • Eric Rashid

    Eric Rashid

    Vit më parë

    And you overlooked the possibility of a small furnace being useful in reducing costs and wait times for parts whilst they're hard to be had with a Tesla sometimes.... I don't know whether Elon minds it or not; he lives like 2000 miles from me so I couldn't even ask him if I worked for him, he is a billionaire that probably doesn't have time for everyone on the planet, and the media controls most of what people knows about him. I don't troll every video ever created about him, I'm too lazy. But harassment generally isn't particularly pleasant.

    Rich! New subscriber here. Really enjoying your videos. Quick question that I haven't seen you speak on yet--- While rebuilding these Teslas, have you found a way to make them more efficient? I know many people in the past have played around with engines and making them more efficient than the manufacturer made them. I heard its actually pretty easy once you know the machine you're working with. Have you come across anything like this yet? Also, random question, could you see yourself doing a charity-build for someone living in poverty- that could really use a vehicle to change their life? Someone I know is working their Butt -off to save for a vehicle, and they're having a rough time getting enough money to get a vehicle. Once they get a vehicle, they plan to live in it, and travel the country living their dream-life working on random farms, living a simple life... This requires a reliable vehicle though. I would love to see something like this done! Thank you for your time Rich!!!!
