Re: Mustang Death Valley Challenge

Range and charging availability aside, I wonder how something like a Tesla that has a liquid battery cooling system would do?

Re: Mustang Death Valley Challenge

Interesting story…

When the wife and I drove through Death Valley  in January we saw a Tesla.

We got up at O’dark thirty, hopped in the van and drove out north through the park for sunrise.  Saw several folks photographing the sunrise from different vantage point.

Also saw a Tesla S or Y out in the ding weeds, brush and sand.  Looked like they spent the night out there.  Park service was most likely not pleased…


BTW I think I am down for a Death Valley trip.

Bad news for the 1000 people there, I'm guessing it could get quite hot there soon.

Man, that would be my luck. Surely they are sending help to keep those folks from dying out there???

Re: Mustang Death Valley Challenge

There are several entrances/exits to and from Death Valley accessible by four wheel drive, and I have been on most of the access/egress points and a stock four wheel drive truck can easily make these grades. Google Maps Cerro Gordo just outside of Lone Pine and you will see the road leading to the silver mine (graded for two wheel drive cars), which continues past the silver mine into Death Valley. For kicks, Google the salt tram that used to transport salt from Death Valley to a steamship on Owens Lake. Much of the tram system remains and it is a great day exploring.

Re: Mustang Death Valley Challenge

I'm intrigued by this idea.  With that said, it would help to have my car finished.

What is left to do?
Should we call Garage Squad?

Re: Mustang Death Valley Challenge

I'm getting up the gumption to start cutting up my floor pans.  I got the car back up on wheel dollies yesterday.  Next step is to move the car out of the way, make sure my floor is level, get it back on jackstands, etc.  Then I will be ready start cutting.  All of that to say, I sure wish I had a minisplit in my garage! https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/shocked.png

Re: Mustang Death Valley Challenge

Although not as hot as Texas, could use a minispilt in NY too.
