    The Model 3 Delivery event timer is wrong. It seems to count to 7PM local-time instead of PST.
    (Here in Switzerland it says the event will take place Friday, 28th, 7pm (we are UTC+2), it should be Sat, 29th, 4am here)

    Cheers
    Michel

      being on the west coast, the counter shows correctly from here. (1 week, 2 days, 12 hours...)

        Yeah... it should really just use server time to calculate, and nothing from the Client :)
        My forum settings are OK and set to Central Europe Time

        @samson The 6 hours are your local time to my local time difference (GMT-4 to GMT+2). Yours is off as well...
        @MelindaV You are in the same timezone as the delivery event

        looks like @TrevP needs to tinker with it so it is only working off PST (like the title says ;) )

          @TrevP You might want to change to UTC time by setting utc:1 and adjust the date/time properly to UTC time. That might work:
          Code:
          countDown({targetDate:{'day':28,'month':7,'year':2017,'hour':19,'min':0,'sec':0,'utc':0}})
          should get to this:
          Code:
          countDown({targetDate:{'day':29,'month':7,'year':2017,'hour':02,'min':0,'sec':0,'utc':1}})

            So, are we off by +1 hour or -1 hour or what?

            It looks like the calculation believes the event is at 7pm in the local user's timezone instead of PDT.

            I need some help figuring this out a bit. I just enabled the timer to Sync with UTC. I have the time set to 19:00 on the 28th. Is that correct? How much +_ do I need to adjust?

            I think 7pm PDT 28th == 2am UTC 29th.

            @TrevP If you set your timer for UTC 29th 2am July that will be equal to 28 th July 7pm Pacific time.

            The timer is calculating based on your local time

              OK, I set it like that but it doesn't display based on your local time I'll just have to lock it to 7PM PST and leave it like that
