Tesla’s Cybertruck is a Lie

Tesla’s Cybertruck is a Lie


rev your engines yeah I’m disappoint it looks like they’re not gonna be a rematch between the Tesla cyber truck and the
Ford f-150 senior vice president of Ford tweeted that they wanted to have a
rematch and have them pull against it but for just put out a press release it
says well that was tongue-in-cheek they’re not actually going to do it but
you remember that talk of war that they showed the Tesla winning the tug of war
and pulling the Ford well if you watched it it was a joke because it wasn’t even
all-wheel drive like the Tesla truck was he not even comparing apples to apples
they would have put in a big old f-150 with a v8 and all-wheel drive I kind of
doubt that the Tesla was gonna be full of that bang prankster people put up you
know you never have any idea what’s actually going on in any of them in the
video world I know a lot of videographers they can make anything
look like anything you know without actually doing it I mean you could leave
one car in neutral I would pull the other one you could take your foot off
the gas there’s all kinds of things that you could do the only test I would like
to see an actual test where there were guys that I knew say an asphalt track
where they get good grip and then just have them both pull in and see which I
wish someone would actually do this setup then I would find interesting but
you know all this tweeting back and forth to me tweeting is nonsense I don’t
spend any of my time tweeting about anything I’m here to help people out
with real information not to just make up stuff and tweet it to try to get
something sensational out here they may not mean anything at all you know let’s
live in a real world but in a real world I do have to say I would love to see a
real test with a v8 war wheel drive f150 against the cyber truck to see what
would happen one way or another or any kind of test that we’re actually really
done wouldn’t explain this has this this says that and then do it scientifically
for 80 years I had so many non scientific things tried to be sold to me
like I said how this magic thing makes me get better gas mileage and I’ll say
did you test it on a dyno on a racetrack with a car that didn’t have it then the
same car that did have to see what the gas mileage
what the power was you have to do things scientifically when you test stuff that
oh I used this and got better gas mileage that doesn’t mean anything psychologically
you could be driving slower because you want better gas much I got customers
driving Tesla’s they can get 60 something miles on a partial charge but they drive like total turds turtles going so slow people want to run them over cuz they’re
going so slow so that’s not an accurate test an accurate test it’s done at all
speeds all temperatures over time then you know yes it works or no it doesn’t I
might think what these dusters would be what are you gonna be like actually
pulling stuff actually carrying a lot of weight
how long have those batteries gonna last because from my experience with electric
vehicles they generally are fine when they’re empty but when you start loading
them down and either going at high speeds or pulling heavy loads they drain the batteries a lot faster that’s just how they are just like a gasoline engine
if you’re towing something it gets horrendous gas mileage if you’re towing
heavy weights where the diesel engines they get much better gas mileage towing
heavy weights cuz that’s what they’re designed for so let’s be scientifically
any testings and not just have a tweet storm of nonsense flying back and forth
Jonathan says hey Scotty I’m about to change my engine oil and filter car has very high
mileage should I use high mileage oil or should I leave what’s in it my theory
with engine oil yes if you’re using a quality engine I like personnel use
Castro and you have no problems just continue to use it the high mileage oil
theoretically is for engines that are worn it’s best to stick to whatever
you’ve used and definitely don’t go from synthetic to non synthetic or from
non-synthetic to synthetic and a high engine there used to want oil if it
works fine the way it is stick with what you have don’t change just for change 6
and from my experience all the oils that they sell name brands they’re decent
oils they work perfectly fine but they have slightly different additives so if
you find one works fine with one that you have just stick to it don’t go
changing around just for change that car cuz one is 50 cents a quart cheaper or
something I just got so many thousands of dollars don’t think about that small
change red track says I got an 06 Jeep Wrangler 4 liter my obd is
incomplete i can’t get it inspected when they plug in the scanner it says Mil not
ready what can I do oxygen sensor
or the one that won’t get ready it says mil not ready that generally means
there’s a problem either an oxygen sensors the wiring or the catalytic
converter I fixed one of those three months ago even though it was a 2006 it
has a recall for the oxygen sensor wiring once he recall exists they have
to fix the car forever it does not matter that your Jeep is 14 years old
now it has a recall the only thing they were doing a dealer is they’ll take your
VIN number and they’ll run it and if it doesn’t say that that recalls been fixed
they’ll fix it for free so all you got to do is get your VIN number to view
content occasion number called the Jeep dealer and says I know there’s a recall
for this for the oxygen sensor wire and you fix them for free has this one every
one fixed are you fix it for free and they look it up and then they tell you
know if they said it’s been fixed alrighty cover mechanic check out the
wiring to see if it has been replaced cuz sometimes they might lie to you but
generally it’s a recall and they aren’t gonna lie too much about recalls that’s
federal law so if it hasn’t been done and they’ll have to fix it for free
anytime you got a question about a problem with your car but you can do it
you can just go to that government website just type in US government
recall website just google it and it will come right up then you type your VIN number
in and it’ll show you all the recalls anytime you got a problem with your car
yeah why not just do that cuz you might have a free tips you never know and it
can never stop recalls in the United States recalls are forever they don’t
have a limited warranty three years 50,000 miles no recalls go forever so
just do that it’s real easy to do aussie’s not going sick says I got a
2004 Buick Regal and cranks it won’t start and the security alike is coming
on help when the security light comes on and it cranks but it won’t start
that means your security system is keeping your car from being started 2004
it’s got the key and a key has a little chip and that estimation with signal
that comes into the steering column that goes to the body control module it’s
nothing you can really fix yourself lets your mechanic if your mechanic gods are
you’re not gonna be asking me about it find either a locksmith or a mechanical
works on those systems a lot of times locksmiths work on them a lot cheaper
locksmiths made house calls mechanics don’t you’ll save yourself a hundred
something though they’re gonna check the horse
before you even do that try another key maybe you got another key it works that
what’s broken another key just more it’s either the
unit that’s inside the steering column that meshes with the key that gets the
signal they often break or a fixed one about a month ago and it was the body
control module that sends the signal to the body control module if the body
control module breaks it won’t send the signal back to the computer to let us
not even need the part in your steering column fixed or a new body control
module but either way if you can find locksmith that doesn’t work start there
and they could come to you and do the work and study you having to tow your
car even if you guessed you can’t cancel the body control module because if you
put it in a car won’t start it has to be reprogrammed so they make it so you
can’t fix that stuff yourself they’re evil but that’s the way that it goes we
got another key try that I’ll get customers dude I’ve had them
bring me bad keys I’ll see your car won’t start you have any other keys yeah
they bring the other key it starts right up and said well your car’s fixed now brick
Wow says I got 2010 Ford Fusion v6 there’s no heat from the heat or the
blower motor won’t blow anything there’s generally two things that go wrong
either the blower motors going bad or the ball or motor resistor is going bad
the sense of power no they’ve made them more complicated and the simple blower
motor resistor that used to cost like fifteen bucks
and on those Ford’s those are notorious or going bad so under the dash and you
see it used to be called the resistor like I said now it’s got the blower
motor speed controller go to that tap it with a hammer if you tap it and it
starts working that’s bad that’s how I test them cuz it’s often that’s stupid
little module that goes bad and if you tap and it starts working that’s it now
if you tap it it doesn’t work and then you go to the baller motor and you tap
that and it works that means you need a blower motor could be either but I’ve
seen those modules go bad all the time on the Ford’s it’s kind of a design flaw
kathan says Scotty I want to buy a classic seventies American car not
sportscar from eBay for collection and also for rent
hourly now for your collection buy whatever you want that you like
personally with those things I’d say Ford’s are a lot easier to get parts for
into fix and then you’d go GM after that if you’re talking about classic sell
because at least they were making better cars back then I don’t know
thing because you get old cars and you round them out to people hey you got a
baby an old car and you round them out to people they’re generally gonna rag on
I know and my son got married they rented a Mustang to zoom around in hey
drove the heck out of that thing I’m amazed it didn’t fall apart what they’re
driving at something maybe buying a classic seventies American continent
renting it out to people might not be such a smart idea if you want to collect
them and have them for your own toys yeah but renting them out to people that
might be a stretch then that all stops gonna break it if you do put a lot of
money into them then you’re putting a lot of money yeah you’re not gonna get that
much rent I’m out that they’re probably gonna do more damage to the car then you
put into it I gotta rethink that what if I were you Cal Hall says I got a
2016 Volkswagen Jetta the drivers heated seat doesn’t work and it’s called here
in Minnesota obviously check the fuse to really make sure that’s work but from my
experience with those Volkswagens they have crappy heating elements that short
out it’s not that hard to test them you can just unplug where the power goes
then you have a guy check them with a meter and if it shows open that means
that this is short in a circuit because it’s an open circuit now the last time I
fixed one of those I had to replace the expensive heating element now if it’s
that you don’t want to pay for it hey just use the heater maybe bring a
blanket what’s it those things aren’t cheap nothing’s cheap in a Volkswagen
other than the quality but I do see those heating elements break all the
time which is funny because the other day I was in a 25 year old Lexus and
those heated seats were burning my but they were still working so hot but you
got a three-year old Volkswagen it’s broken already listen to scotty when he says don’t buy VW’s mike says Scotty I got a
four-wheel drive 1990 Bronco 2 it’s lifted with 32 inch tires
I notice the RPMs are about 4,000 65 miles an hour I looked on the internet
but they said it should be around 2000 depending on the gearing first of all
realize it’s lifted and it has bigger tires you start messing with the tire
size that’s based on the stock wheels the way it was set up the guy could have
put on different gears in the transmission or a different rear end
with the year race you know normally with those I
find they changed the rear ends and when they changed the rear ends then all bets
are off they change the rear ends so they have more accelaration taking off
from zero but then at higher speeds the engine’s gonna spin higher so the odds
are they messed with the differential with the rear end and that’s the problem,
so if you never want to miss another one of my new car repair videos, remember to

  2. its still more powerful 2.9 seconds 0-60 plus the tug of war the tesla was pushing the f150 uphill if it was a flat street f150 would never have chance even in 4wd

  3. I'll let the diesel truckheads do the tug of wars with potato quality cameras and judge that..THE REAL WORLD is a crazy place 😉

  4. Heyyyy scotty ,
    I’m thinking about to buy nissan primera 2005 , with 81,000 kilometers on it for 2,500 Euro, what do you think????

    Shenzoye,

  5. Scotty any Tesla car or truck battery is loaded with Cobalt. If a nuclear bomb detonates in close proximity this creates a dirty bomb throwing out massive Gamma radiation that could cook 1.5 million people. I learned this from scientist Tim Rifat on the Rense radio show.
    Tesla car batteries can also spontaneously combust.

  6. The reason the Tesla won, is because he is heavier. It's math, Tesla knew that. It would only be "fair" if the ford had 4×4 and weighed as much. In reality the Tesla will suck big time with towing range.

  7. I wish i was live in 1980's man all those crazy musle cars v8's and not that crappy 2D overpriced Cybershit i own a pontiac gto better than most of the cars i driven

  8. To me Elon MUSK is just a rich (even that is on a soul level questionable) guy, with a brain capacity of, he' still peeing straight into his diapers.

  9. hey Scotty, Don't worry about being wrong, sometimes it might happen, but as long u can still notice or figure it out yourself, you did not have been really wrong, so to speak : u still got everything under control ! Great show Scotty, nature is the best teacher, I couldn't make it better myself. Like life sometimes happens, the world would be a much sader place, if you not there ! ! ! God bless u all & merry Christmas …

  10. Hey Scotty, I have a Hyundai Tucson 2016 GDI engine, how do I take a better care of the engine other than changing the oil regularly? Thanks.

  11. SO, IF YOU DON'T WANNA MISS ANY OF MY NEW CAARRR REPAIR VIDEOS, REMEMBER TO RING THAT BELL!!!

    DONNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!

  12. Your thoughts on hybrid
    Any video made on hybrid
    Not in favour of electric cars
    Infrastructure not there for all electrical cars

  13. Hi Scotty Kilmer i have a 2016 Kia Sorento and from time to time a get piston slap ive change fuel several time to check if thats the problem also put new OEM spark plugs after a while ingot a code that stated my intake runner have a problem and that the engine is rich i dont understand exactly wha to do in this situation its a GDI engine trust I hate i was thinking of changing the intake manifold that take the injectors on the outside and not direct. Whats do you think about this???

  14. Mate u are so anti change… hello Toyota stopped making Diesel cars in 2018..
    Scotty have u seen the amount of EV cars at the Geneva 2019 motor show.

  15. My son used to make jokes about my 70’s car using phrases like “it’s boxy, but it’s good”. Now, would that apply to Cybertruck? To me is like an “electric shoebox”

  16. You're totally wrong Scotty especially with all Toyota recalls. Some recalls have limited times and limited warranty's. Example the frame recalls with Tundra, Taco, and, Sequoia. The engines for sludge in early 2000 V6's……………………

  17. But just imagine those cyber trucks next to traffic cones with a group of men standing around a hole in the road near by.

  18. Locomotives use electric motors that is assisted with a diesel engine. This is old 1940 technology, believe me the Tesla was pulling that ford truck.

  19. I have 1995 Ford F-150 4 Wheel drive with a 5.8 liter V8. I challenge any Tesla owner to a pull test. I can drag that Tesla truck all over the parking lot.

  20. Unless you are a hipster taking out their electric bike for a ride, the Cyber truck is JUNK! Huge vehicle with a small bed you cannot reach over the side to access. The first time someone trips and punches a huge hole in their head on those hard corners there will be lots of lawsuits and recalls. Back window is worse than the modern Camaro. Tesla has a long history of technical, production and design problems. Other than being electric, nothing good about the Cybertruck. Like Musk himself, all spin.

  21. Yeah, but how about that 9mm resistant stainless steel bodywork, eh?

    Not impressed, Tesla. Lots of things will stop a 9mm. Come back when it’ll stop a .30 cal.

  22. If Tesla can make a video where it looks like a rocket is actually landing the same way it launched, then they can make a video where it looks like it might not be a total piece of junk. Don't believe everything you see in a video.

  23. What about loaning old cars out to movie or tv studios for period films? I know a guy who has an old Packard hearse that is registered for use in movies.

  24. The Cybetrruck is a medium to heavy duty work truck, about the size of an F150 4×4 crew cab pickup.
    231.7" in length. 75" tall. 79.9" wide. Bed is 6'.5" long, and 57" wide.
    Some specs and features:
    The Cybertruck is cheaper to own and operate than your traditional economy car.
    Price point comparable to a mid-level F150 Crew Cab or an F250 Crew Cab w/ a few added options.
    More powerful than an F150, and tougher, with more standard features.
    A 'fill-up' costs $10 – $15. w/ standard range of 250 – 300 miles.

    Weighs abt 6,000 lbs.
    Stock: 2WD hauls 3500 lbs.
    Tows 7500 lbs
    Body is all but indestructible 301 cold rolled stainless steel.
    Impact resistant glass.

    Room for six passengers.
    State of the art electronics and sound.
    360 security camera system to keep a eye out on all your stuff. (Sentry Mode)

    6.5' bed. 57" wide with no wheel wells.
    3,500 lb payload capacity
    Built in ramp.
    Powered retractable tonneau cover.
    Adjustable air shocks for ease of loading.
    Lighted bed w/ numerous tie-downs for different gear.
    Additional storage in a 'trunk' under the bed.
    Additional storage, in the 'sail pillars' on the exterior sides of the bed. i.e. Built in tool boxes.
    onboard air compressor.
    Onboard generator w/ 120 & 220 outlets.

    some of the upgrades:
    4X4
    14,000 lb towing.
    500 mile range = at least 33 mpg equivalent
    Faster than a Porsche.
    0 – 60 in 2.9 seconds
    Self-driving option.

    Compare, head to head, with the base model F150 and then the full package F150.

    Many fleet operators – contractors and construction, can't wait to get their hands on them.
    A number of farmers and ranches have also joined in the chorus.
    These people do the math, or go out of business.

    Plus, the Cybertruck will take a beating and still look good. 😉

  25. True, that tesla isnt a "truck".. All they gotta do is make the Porsche 911 let the gas go for about a second to make it look fast

  26. Bad Cybertruck test but end result will be the same …once it is better thought out! They should do a race test towing too!

  27. Hay scotty any special procedure for changing a fuel pressure regulator on a 2002 trailblazer? Mine is seeping gas no performance issues 202,000 miles.

  28. Verifiable improved mileage results can be obtained by filling gas tank at the coldest part of the day and pumping slowly. My commuter car got one more days worth of driving by filling up when it is cold out. Summertime weather makes this not work. ;-(

  29. Tesla is all hype. All those Model 3 early deposits for a sub-par vehicle. Same for the Cyber-Truck, Model X, and the Model Y. People don't learn and stay ignorant.

  30. Numbers don't lie… not difficult to work out that the Cyber truck is just a gimmick… Power density of the battery does not lend itself for trucks… this is why His big rig truck has not taken off at all… it would have to carry its entire payload in just batteries. In time when batteries have a 2.5 or 3 times higher energy density then.. sure.. As for the pull test……. really…. bit of a circus act I wont get into…. but people love it and fans are fans even when its not possible.

  31. There must be a way (with the old vehicles and bad key electronics) to just get a hacked or reprogrammed body control module that somehow ignores the security chip entirely. The inconvenience of faulty starts is greater than the risk of theft.

  32. Of course a heavier vehicle has more grip and wins easier. The power is not relevant when trying to provide wheel torque as you can use high ratio gearing to produce any torque you need.
    With an electric vehicle things are more challenging when using fixed gear ratios. With multiple motors you have the option of using different gear ratio for each engine. So a high ratio can give more wheel torque and a lower ratio low torque but higher top speed. Tesla seems to do well in terms of wheel torque. Remember that they need to use a much higher ratio equivalent to 4th gear. Whereas a normal truck can even use a reductor that doubles the 1st gear torque. The f150 may actually have more wheel torque in 1st and with the reduction gear engaged but it’s much lighter and the maximum traction available depends on weight (other factors tires and road surface type).

  33. While on the one hand, you are entirely correct about Tesla versus Ford. I thought about that myself when I first saw the video. One extra factor I want to make it apples to apples is, make sure the price points for the vehicles being compared is the same or at least within the same ballpark.

  34. Scotty, don't worry we will do the tug of war in an asphalt track if the trucks available in GTA 5 with a "tug of war" option!

  35. Do you, Scotty, have objective evidence as to the "risk" of changing oil brands or origin [synthetic /conventional] ?

  36. Nobody can be expert in everything , so no biggie, Scotty, but 'shorted' and 'open' are not synonyms. If you don't want to be specific, you can just say, 'faulty'.

  37. I'm pretty sure that Tesla did the math and knew that they would win against a 4wd F-150 with comparable features and weight in a tug of war so, in order to create a trap for Ford, they baited the viewers with an RWD F-150 vs their AWD dual-motor cybertruck, hoping for exactly what Ford's VP tweeted, but when they were gun-ho about a fair rematch, Ford's PR teams danger alarms went off and they scrubbed the deal knowing that they would lose hard as electric motors provide instantaneous torque while internal combustion engines need to rev up, engage the transmission then transfer momentum energy to wheels via a differential. By that time, they would already be moving backward which would make it exponentially harder to win.
    Ultimately I eagerly await the YouTube videos of cybertruck owners towing all sorts of vehicles that are icing superchargers.
