Stumbled across the Facebook page for the roadtrip this morning. For those of you that don't know an owner is going thru the US and Canada doing various events at Superchargers. He is offering test drives for a fee (lets leave that debate in the previous locked thread). Figured I'd post this up as like me a lot of you might not have realized it could be coming close to you.

I'm planning to go to the one in Kingston next week. Unsure if I'll do the test drive or not. Might want that to be the surprise when I take delivery!

Thanks @BigBri, I just saw an article on Electrek where he hit the top speed in his Model 3 (141mph) and said it didn’t shake at all and was a smooth ride. Would love for him to come to my area, but I don’t have (or want) Facebook. Lol
Anyone with an account feel like asking him to come to the Davenport Iowa Supercharger? :D

Edit to add Electrek link: https://electrek.co/2017/12/26/tesla-model-3-top-speed-141-mph-crosscountry-trip/

Edit 2: I’m able to click the link without a FB account, looks like Des Moines is my best shot. I doubt he’d want to double back from Independence, MO to here for what would likely be only a handful of guests.

I also saw that video. Nothing like committing a felony on camera and allowing the entire world to view the evidence. Sorry, I know he is trying to show off what the car is capable of but public roads are not the place for that kind of speed. Maybe I'm just getting old though because I was guilty of doing worse in my youth! (but then again I didn't leave video evidence for the police either)

Well my kids are sick and we just canceled our Disney trip for tomorrow, so I’ll be going to see the car tomorrow!

With one caveat ... he is somehow in Florida and Georgia at the same time.

Noticed a few locales like that. Makes me wonder if it’s possible he’d pick the one with the most “guests” checked in. The Des Moines visit is scheduled for 7am on the 7th of January, and so is Omaha, NE.

Edit: typo

I’m anxious to see it as when I drove Jon’s White Model 3 it was at night and I didn’t get to see it in the sun.

I just switched back to Midnight Silver from White, so now my brain is going to explode.

I keep going back and forth between silver and white. If they had the alpha silver it’d be a no brainer for me!

He updates the ETA the night before. There's also a Glympse linked to follow him real time. They are two drivers, drive fast, and for more than 12 hours per day.
Yeah I found the link on Facebook, here for anyone that couldn’t find it ... http://glympse.com/!tsla3

Will definitely go tomorrow if they make it to South Florida.

Was able to download the app and join the “group” in order to track their progress, without having to sign up (continue as guest) or having to share my location and info.

Yup, I'm not very impressed. But not surprised either.

Ok so I must be missing something. How do you “join the group” in the app?

I don’t think you’re getting old. Blasting past cars at 141 MPH on a 2 lane highway is downright insane. One person from the right lane jumps in front of him at 60 MPH and look out.

I like how the Electrek article says we’re not sure what the speed limit is and don’t try this at home. Meanwhile the AP suite reads speed limit signs and shows you the speed limit which was 113 KPH or 70 MPH. Basically he was doubling the speed limit. Depending upon where you are in the US, that could result in immediate license revocation.

Since he is nice enough to allow anyone to track his location while he breaks the laws across the country I'm surprised the Texas Highway Patrol didn't track him down and present him with some hospitality handcuffs!

They have tracks for that stuff. Totally irresponsible on public roads. I’m going to go to Kingston for sure. Just over an hour from here.

I clicked the link you posted (don’t left click or it will open in the app...right click, “open in new tab/window”), then in the top right was a button to “join” (or add, maybe?) and now in the app I click the Model 3 symbol...er, the three bars I mean...in the top left and under “public tags” is You You Xue’s group ”tsla3.”

Edit: “Join Group”...here are pics :)
Edit2: attempt to clarify in case others read this and try

Weird — I was trying to same thing and it doesn’t work. It opens the app and then nothing, just centers on my current location.

Another way I suggest trying...click the Model 3 symbol in the app (upper left corner), click the plus symbol in the Public Tags section and type in tsla3 in the pop up box.
