@ParkerWoolfolk Increased tire pressure improves range. Also, if you have performance tires, they are stickier. Better handling, but slightly lower range.
@ctbarker32 Apologies, we’re upgrading our logistics system, but running into an extreme shortage of car carrier trailers. Started building our own car carriers this weekend to alleviate load.
@DMC_Ryan Wow, thanks for offering to help! The coming week is incredibly intense. If any current Tesla owners who’d like to help educate new owners could head to Tesla delivery centers during midday on Sat/Sun & morning/evening on weekdays, that would be super appreciated!
Probably 2028 for a base to be built

Consider an ice skater. Same weight, but spins/turns much faster with arms in vs arms out. Same principle is true for a car.
@LanceUlanoff Front vs rear wheel weight distribution, though commonly asked, isn't the right question. You can have 50% on front, 50% on rear & still have poor handling if mass elements are far from center. Dumbbell mass distribution is bad, spinning top/dreidel is good.
