  2. What Are You Listening To?

    RIP Malcolm. I salute you!
  3. Today
  4. Large woodworking machines are cheaper now than they were 30 years ago by far.
  5. Did someone forget about those F&F days? There too many folks in this world to all be doing the same, exact thing . Not that I was a big fan of fart cans and wings, but some of us just want to enjoy our rides, not matter what they are. We really can't change the times my friend, only finding a way to make it our own. Besides, ICE will never truly go away....just won't be as big.....
  6. Ram News: Spying: Ram 1500 Sporting A Split Tailgate?

    Some of today's pickups sit so high they should offer steps like these..
  7. Random Thoughts Thread

    Godspeed, Malcolm Young.
  8. Porsche News: Rumorpile: Porsche Reconsiders 911 Hybrid

    Yes..it's too bad they didn't bring back that starter sound for the Challenger and Charger...would be a cool retro touch.
  9. Porsche News: Rumorpile: Porsche Reconsiders 911 Hybrid

    the irony in this...is that the Chrysler starter motor...and all starter motors for that matter... are all ELECTRIC motors...

    You say that up above... But then you say this down below... yet IGNORE the fact that the ZR1 ALMOST has the same whining noises as you find in an EV as a supercharger whine is just that...NOT an ENGINE RUMBLING NOISE but a whiny afterthought of a noise DROWNING out the V8 rumble you cherish so dearly... How many naturally aspirated performance engines are still around? The base engines of those...sure! But the top dog ones are all force fed by devices that make crappy noises. A turbo aint better... PSSSSSS. PSSSSSS. blow valve sounds are just as annoying... The Voodoo is just about the only 500 naturally aspirated horses around... 1 engine in an ICE car is not my idea of what YOU are trying to disprove of when it comes to EVs...
  11. @ocnblu—All you have proven with your Amish remark is that the Amish are better at adapting to changes in technology better than you are. Thanks for proving that.
  12. We didn’t get lazy and spoiled in so much that the world got smaller and corporations got greedier by seeking the lowest wages around the world to peddle their wares.
  13. Oh just shut up with this nonsense. It’s called a damn joke (and was only related to the horse and buggy discussion) and you’re just mad becuase you have been called out for your repeated trolling. You’ll find my concern for you on this in the same place as the unicorn, imaginary and nowhere to be found. There was no bait. It was a joke that he wants to act all sensitive regarding and only because he was called out. I had no idea he even lived anywhere near the Amish but it does not change my original point which was it was a f@#king joke. If he can’t handle that, then maybe it’s he that needs to find a safe space where he can continue to troll what he doesn’t like without resistance. Might I suggest www.fossilfuelsrockandsolarandevssuck.com?

    You really are ignorant of EV motors, they DO NOT all sound the same, they DO NOT all drive the same, If you spent any time educating yourself to at least understand the EV auto, you would find that every EV maker has clearly built a motor with it's own distinct sound. Just as Harley Davidson's Live Wire electric Bike has it's own distinct sound from the other 20+ bike builders as well as the Chevy Bolt compared to a Tesla both have their own distinct sound. Quieter Yes, All sounding the same? NO Just a whole new world of sounds to enjoy and take in. Killing the Human Spirit, WOW you really are digging for every reason to resist change. This has expanded the human spirit and improved social behavior. Technology has allowed humans to communicate and work with each other in ways never before achieved. You complain about the Amish comments and yet you are not willing to expand your mind to understand the point being made of growing oneself to improve yourself and what you contribute to humanity over all. There is so much to learn and experience. It really amazes me why you fear them so much as you attempt to bring up every excuse to hate them when you clearly have not even done research to understand them. The ability to have time with other humans where you can have a conversation in your auto rather than be drowned out by the noise. Automation of driving will allow people to interact more while in transit, The ability to work, plus do things even I have not thought of yet is what is great about the evolution of the auto industry. I doubt very much that someone driving a ZR1 on a driving enjoyment road is really having much of a conversation and most of the time when I see Enthusiast out on a road driving trip much like bike riders, they are alone enjoying their aggressive driving, not socializing with others. That might come when they are stopped at a rest stop or place to eat. Socializing then, I have seen more Tesla Clubs out socializing with families and kids than I have seen at the Porsche or Corvette clubs. So based on my own observations, the Destruction of Social Behavior by isolating us is what has become from the Corvette and Porsche clubs where you have individuals focused on themselves rather than others. Harley Davidson Livewire Sound.
  15. @ocnblu Trying to help you out, here is the Semi Truck platform they show in the video. Interesting that someone did the math to try and figure out the Semi truck battery pack size. Course Tesla says 400 miles in 30 min of charging. Recharge while you unload your freight.
  16. Tesla Unveils Their Electric Semi Truck

    No there is NO ICE in the Tesla Semi or Roadster. Just watch the official Roll out video I have posted in my story on the Semi and Roadster Ocnblu. They are pure EV. Musk hates all things ICE and would never allow it. You can watch both Semi's come into the show at the opening and the roadster unveiling along with the take off. Tons of torque is amazing to watch. As I have posted pictures but also in the video you will see that they cover the truck, no room for an ICE generator or anything as with the Roadster. Pure EV.
  17. Porsche News: Rumorpile: Porsche Reconsiders 911 Hybrid

    Read CLOSER... YOU always do that when somebody challenges you... DONT dismiss by finding a little thing...LOOK at the BIGGER picture... But yeah...EVEN steering wheels... A 1966 Toronado steering wheel was special...so was a 1970 442 that was different to the Toronado's The 1966 Riviera was different to the Toronado's and so was the GSX's to the 442 which all were different to the GTO and the Corvette... So yeah... A C6 steering wheel that is the same as a Malibu is EXACTLY how YOU want the EV argument to go down...but YOU dont want to admit to it because it puts a kink in your view of EVs as ICE cars today have started that trend...and YOU dont want to admit it!
  18. Porsche News: Rumorpile: Porsche Reconsiders 911 Hybrid

    I agree with you here...except for the Jeepiat engine part... If it "feels" like its unique...its a computer thing that makes you have that illusion. The same could be done to an electric motor, maybe... An EV will NEVER idle like a MOPAR V8...but its acceleration will always be like a rocket ship... But really, dont you think its sad that both Chevy and Dodge have to add LARGER superchargers to their already supercharged beast of V8s to have a different, but same to a certain extent, of their Z06 and Hellcat engines to propel their ZR1 and Demon cars? BTW...a supercharger was both added to the base engines to get the Z06 and Hellcat... OK...stronger internals, but basically same block as base engines...
  19. Porsche News: Rumorpile: Porsche Reconsiders 911 Hybrid

    I'm not talking about steering wheels. Wow.
  20. Porsche News: Rumorpile: Porsche Reconsiders 911 Hybrid

    But..isnt that how MOST ICE cars are now? The interior bits are also shared...when a C6 Vette has the EXACT same steering wheel as the same year Malibu... All steering wheels actually come from that one same supplier... Engines are no longer being built to a specific taste on a specific type of car. Very few engines have that specialness to them. But even then, they are shared across the corporate parent. About that...noises coming from those engines are muted greatly...(most of the time) All the "negative" driving characteristics have been nannied to death with computer controlled helpers. Oversteer, understeer, torquesteer...all neutered and negated. All the good stuff too, all have computer aided shyte on them. Oversteer, understeer, acceleration, rev matching manual shifting, all done with computers... Therefore...the hate for EVs in that regard....maybe for nothing...
  21. Porsche News: Rumorpile: Porsche Reconsiders 911 Hybrid

    The sound of a Chrysler starter motor... or a Ford 5.0 when it revs, the snap and crackle of the new ZR-1 as it acquits itself at the top of the food chain... these are the things that make me love cars. Even my "Jeepiat" with its modest little 2.4 has a character of its own. Why would I willingly choose to lose these things that give me joy, that elicit an emotional response? There can be no joy in the hum of an electric motor, they all sound the same, they all produce the same result in their distance from emotion and thought and hope for a happy journey to a given destination. The "convenience" of the rise of electrical devices of most ilks (phones that produce zombies are another thing) will kill the human spirit of adventure. It has already contributed to the ruination of constructive social behaviour by isolating us. We are all slaves.
  22. Tesla Unveils Their Electric Semi Truck

    Saw a short spy video of it taking off and it was quick & silent, but who knows.
  23. I would agree one hundred percent with you here.
  24. Efficiency can too easily equate to totally boring homogeny. This should be seen as a real threat to the enjoyment of the personal car, and when enjoyment diminishes, lower sales follow, and on and on. This is why I will continue to rail against automotive electrification... it instills a numbing sameness that will suck all the joy out.
  25. Random Thoughts Thread

    "FIN" - like a French film
  26. Tesla Unveils Their Electric Semi Truck

    I need someone to verify what I've read all over the internet. Is it true that for the rolling shots, these things are being propelled by ICE? Just curious.
  27. Porsche News: Rumorpile: Porsche Reconsiders 911 Hybrid

    No way no how will it be a Porsche 911. It will be like every other plug-in, humming device except with a familiar shell plopped over it. Just like NASCAR except they still use internal combustion... same boring chassis underneath them all.
