What to do when your Tesla Cybertruck gets "Cyberstuck"

Even the mighty Cybertruck can get stuck, especially when conquering unpredictable terrain. Sand, snow, gravel, streams, and rocks – these elements can all bring your journey to a halt. But fear not, intrepid Cybertruck driver! Tesla, in its official off-road Cybertruck guide, provides valuable tips to help you get unstuck and back on track.

Maximizing Traction

  1. Overland Mode: This mode is your first line of defense, optimizing various settings for improved traction.
  2. Suspension Height: Raise your suspension until the vehicle clears the obstacle, but avoid lowering it to prevent underbody damage.
  3. Terrain Mode: Choose the setting that best matches the surface – Rock for high traction, Sand for momentum in loose terrain.
  4. Locking Differentials: Engage front and/or rear locking differentials for maximum grip.
  5. Trail Assist: This feature helps you crawl through difficult terrain with steady, controlled progress.

Additional Countermeasures

  1. Deflate Tires: Lowering tire pressure to 36 PSI increases contact with the surface, aiding in regaining traction.
  2. Traction Boards: These handy tools improve individual wheel traction, increasing your chances of escape.
  3. Stack Rocks: Create a solid base under your wheels for added grip.
  4. Recovery with Another Vehicle: Utilize recovery equipment to pull your Cybertruck free with the assistance of another vehicle.

Bonus Tips

  • Smoothness is Key: Avoid excessive wheel spin and maintain momentum whenever possible. Trail Assist can be particularly helpful in this regard. Remember, relying on brute force to overcome obstacles often leads to damage.
  • Sand and Snow Strategies: In these situations, momentum is crucial to avoid sinking. Try to maintain forward motion, and if stuck, use Trail Assist at a very low speed to crawl your way out.

By following these tips and utilizing your Cybertruck's off-road capabilities, you'll be well-equipped to handle even the stickiest situations. Remember, preparation and a cool head are essential tools for any off-road adventure. So, get out there, explore, and conquer the challenges with confidence!
