I believe it’s “Terminally Vintage” since it refers to a device whose core concept has been surpassed by dozens of far superior alternatives, and yet still persists for some baffling reason.
The trouble with TVs is that to get a good display, you generally have to get a TV that’s packed to the gills with useless “apps” and shit that just gets in the way. What I really want is just a 60" 4k HDR monitor with good colour fidelity and easy-to-adjust real picture settings (brightness/contrast/white…
I can see Starman by the dashboard light.
Everyone here is going to argue the results and the physics for the next few years, but if it does indeed help it’s most likely because the transfer case locking the two axles together transfers braking power from one axle to the other. Slightly increased drivetrain drag and slightly more effective engine braking…
A truly controlled test would require a groomed ice surface, two identical vehicles, and computer-controlled brake application with applied pressure monitoring. It would also require dozens of trials with the vehicles switching roles.
There are a few ways to bias the braking force.
Jason, I love that car, but even more I love that you have that car.
Mechanically, EVs are simpler than anything that has come before them. Their drivetrain is just an electric motor (nearly indestructible) and maybe a passive reduction gearset (I believe the Model S has a one-stage reduction gear). That aspect of their operation is WAY less prone to the ravages of time and wear than…
Oh hell yes. $200 lightly used 1080s coming right up!
Recessions happen every 9 to 11 years because that’s how long it takes for people to forget what happened last time.
So even their own bullshit testimonials don’t believe it.
I can’t believe how hard these things are being promoted. There are at least two articles a day about one of these always-on audio monitoring devices. They are being sold well below cost.
IKR? These ‘Mericans are constantly spouting off about Freedom this and Freedom that, but their day-to-day life is far less free than other more reasonable countries.
They theoretically have their place. In practice, they are utter shit. For every potential buyer who likes the way all the brickwork and trim in the neighbourhood matches (+$5k to property value), there are ten potential buyers who are not willing to live under the tyranny of an HOA (-$15k to property value).
Definitely get the graphics card.
Let me guess - there are 823 and 31/583rds of them in an inch.
I only ever use grown-up units. No fuckinheit, inches, or quarts here.
GM has sure found some interesting ways to make cars not work over the years.
My 1958 Belvedere consumes the souls of Jason Torchinsky’s enemies until the coolant temp reaches 95˚C.
