Issue 118 - Pics of the Cybertruck at the Petersen Museum in LA
If you weren’t able to make it to the Cybertruk exhibit in LA last week, here are a few more pictures for those of you who can’t stop devouring information about your Tesla future truck.
Is the factory tow package worth the extra $700? Well, it depends on what you’re looking for. Our friends at LivingTesla do a great job of explaining it all in this video.
If you decide to go with the aftermarket tow hitch for your Model Y, here’s the one we recommend.
We always like it when people share their garage customizations. From original ways to get the cables off the garage floor to cool decorations, here’s a new video of an owner who build himself a Tesla Level 2 charger in his garage.
One thing I love about Tesla is it has options for everything. One thing I don’t love is, often, documentation is lacking. In the Model S, I can see which driver profile settings are stored, but that’s not the case for the Model 3. @jchybow has recently shared a list on Twiter with all the settings that are saved to the active driver profile and the rest of the settings which are ‘universal’ (meaning they don’t change when switching the driver profile). Very helpful, thanks for sharing!
Feynlab’s DIY products follow a regimen: Preparation, Protection, Maintenance. First Prepare the paint by washing with Pure Wash, followed by Panel Prep to remove any residual oil or contaminants. Then Protect your Tesla using Ceramic Lite - the easiest coating to apply. Then Maintain the coating with Pure Wash, and if you want that extra touch of protection, follow it up with Ceramic Spray Sealant every couple of months.

A Reddit user shared their first electric bill after installing solar panels and Powerwalls. The cost of the system was $30k and in the first month, the bill went from $692 to $110. Even not sustaining these savings year-round, they should be able to pay back the system in under ten years!
Tesla has been spotted testing what could be a new array of sensors for Autopilot on a Model S test mule vehicle. While the FSD capabilities are constantly being updated via software updates, we haven’t seen Tesla update the sensor suite over the last four years.
Some say it would actually make sense that Tesla would be working on HW4 to address the blind spots and the 360 view, others (the source of the article), say it may be a Cybertruck prototype. If you ask me, while the rear cameras seem to match the ones of the Cybertruck, those repeaters are really high and I think Tesla may actually be testing the Semi’s Autopilot system.
A super cool collaboration between @tesla_raj and @TheHyphenate. Check out what they came up with using Tesla sounds. Pretty cool!

What the acronym?
As Tesla fan I find myself sometimes having to remember what are all those acronyms, here is a list of the ones you can find in this issue.
- FSD - Full Self-Driving
- HW4 - Hypothetical future next version of the hardware (Hardware 3 is the latest version)
