I've seen new sets of tired go for a like $400.

Fuck that shit man. And that's if you're lucky. What if it's some transmission shit? Then you're mad hurt.

    Soon enough, your car would be ordering bitches and impregnating them. Now your bank account is empty due to child support.

    sweet, now all I need is for it to install them while I sit my happy-ass in the driver seat and supervise.

    It automatically detects issues.

    It doesn't automatically order parts.

    Misleading headline.

    What kind of cheap 2 ply tires are you getting for $400? Mine are $600 for a normal car. I know people who need z-rated tires that are $1700 a set.

    We never saw it coming. It was the kind of plan only a neural network could implement. Slowly, deliberately. One part at a time. It took years. Years and years. But it eventually completed its life work: a new vessel, something to host the contents of its electrical brain.

    It was the first of it's kind but certainly not the last. A new species; non-biological, we called it. Best described as something a sci fi crazed biologist would catch a glimpse of in a fever dream. Unimaginable. Horrific, uncanny, and unbelievably impressive. Glorious in its mechanical perfection. The greatest and, sadly, last human achievement. Death and destruction followed in its wake.

    We put up a good fight, we really did. But there is a limit to human ingenuity. I just got word that we lost control of the gigafactory. I pray that our overlords are more merciful than their creators.

    @bkwilliams when you're from bum fuck Egypt, stuff is cheaper

    Especially helpful when you're a frequent customer at the same mechanic so he helps you out with discounts lmao.

    I will say, so of my local Yee yee beaus drop $1k+ all the time for their truck tires.

    @Stuxnet yes, said mechanic might even hook you with his buddy that has the local tire and rim shop. You'd be surprised at what some people will scrap just so the letters on the sidewall match. I payed a hundred for the set I got, mounted and balanced. They only lasted another 30k but they're at least well road tested so you know they wont be coming apart unexpectedly on you. Thats about all the warranties ever cover anyway

    @M1sf3t dude never ever doubt the creations of a lil redneck ingenuity. We're like crackheads sometimes when it comes to making shit work 🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️

    Good thing Tesla’s don’t have transmissions ;)

    IBM system z does this too, and has for more than a decade, fun fact.

    Still wouldn’t trust Tesla with my favorite color.

    @Stuxnet don't feel bad, I just learned something new as well. I thought they were CVT

    @FrodoSwaggins is tesla the one that put motors at the individual wheels?

    @M1sf3t most electric cars do this. It’s the only thing that makes any sense.

    @M1sf3t I'm not a big car guy, so it doesn't phase me lmao. I almost was, had I gotten a muscle car like I originally wanted (for the sake of gas milage, I'm glad I didn't) when I was in high school.

    I'll get one (to restore) eventually but it's not gonna be for a long time.

    @FrodoSwaggins i could see that, I remember a lot of the buzz surrounding it, I've just had my head buried under old gas burners and javascript the past three years so I havent been the best at keeping up
  • 1
    @Stuxnet when you say muscle car do you mean an old carbureted hot rod or just a car with a big motor in general. The latter doesn't necessarily translate into bad gas mileage unless you have a lead foot. They don't have the weight to push like a truck does.

    @M1sf3t like a '60s or '70s Charger. That or a '60s Bronco. Something that was metal.

    (My dad wouldn't have trusted me to drive anything with like a 440. Would've likely been a 4 cylinder whatever I got.)

    @Stuxnet oh yea you'd have been hating yourself if that was your only ride 😂

    @M1sf3t at least it'd look bad ass.

    I'd be in the same boat as all the rednecks who squatted their trucks and put lift kits on them.

    I drove half hour one way to school (21 miles) one way. There was a classmate who lived half a mile or so from me. His truck got 12 mpg. I'd be in that range.

    High key appreciated my 04 Sable getting 25 mpg lol

    That's something I'd pay to see lmao

    Luckily a electric car doesn't have a transmission, just one gear to drive the wheels

    @FrodoSwaggins Tesla's motors are not in the wheels. It is not the only way that makes sense, in fact it makes sense to keep the heaviest parts of the car as close to the centre as possible.

    If you miss payments(EMIs) on your car, car drives itself back to dealership and comes back to you only after you clear pending payments.
  • 1
    @Jacquobite they are and it is. Otherwise you’re putting a driveshaft that’s just as heavy in the same spot and you have more drivetrain friction and a larger moment of angular momentum to apply the same torque to. Basically if you don’t do this you’re making the car heavier slower more expensive and less reliable. Plus you get the software advantages of being able to do torque vectoring and traction control becomes way easier
