    FSD is a fraud

    1. Yes. 2. Agree 3. I've actually had excellent service from Tesla, and I've had some very bad experiences from dealers. Although 10 days ago I had the seat belt harness replaced, then it just started rattling again.

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    For the nuke problem, suggest arming Ukraine with a variety of nukes. That will enforce Russia's mutual destruction, should they try to use nukes.

    Elon: FSD Beta tweets

    According to rumors HW4 also contains new parking cameras, which enables birds eye view. But yeah, FSD continues to be a much bigger problem than people think, including Elon. Elon continues to make the same mistake since 2015. Hopefully Tesla can squeeze level 3 out of hardware 4. Will be...

    The dude who posted that doesn't offer any evidence that it isn't Elon. Yeah so? It doesn't say it is not Elon.

    Semiconductor Shortage and Car Production

    Made up example of the toilet paper problem mentioned above by Elon: Toyota has a 4 month supply of radar chips. GM needs radar chips but has 4 month supply of pic controllers that cost 50 cents each. Toyota has trouble shipping because it needs pic controllers.

    Why does Tesla suspension suck so bad?

    Every vehicle manufacture is in this mode, because of the chip crisis. Has little to do with how good the car is. Let's talk next year after the chip crisis has ended, lots of choices available from other manufacturers, and two new Tesla plants are producing twice as many cars.

    Why does Tesla suspension suck so bad?

    Doesn't seem to be tuned to soft mode. Seems to be tuned to toss your guts around. Can we get a more lush suspension?

    Poll: Are you in favor or against U.S. doing more in Ukraine?

    OS I presume for Oliver Stone. I did find the documentary surprising so pro Russian. Didn't know Oliver Stone has such leanings. Very informative anyways. Previously had no idea where the Ukraine Nazi idea came from.

    Elon: FSD Beta tweets

    He has been wrong on every single long term ( > year ) prediction. He has proven over and over again he is way to optimistic. Anyone that doesn't think he is too optimistic is a neophyte.

    Poll: Are you in favor or against U.S. doing more in Ukraine?

    Helping wipe out Putin and the Oligarchs seems like a very good deed for the U.S. and NATO. But understand most don't want to take the risk to help our buddies in Ukraine. Most seem content to just supply arms to Ukraine. Can we supply advance arms to Ukraine? Our best drones? In addition...

    Tesla BEV Competition Developments

    Interesting they plan to sell 3 different versions eventually. 300 mile range, more than 200 mile range (230?), and cheapest version will be less than 200 (160?) mile range. Cheaper versions won't be available initially. Initial version is going to cost $50K according to estimates on video...

    Why does Tesla suspension suck so bad?

    The stiffest suspension I've ever dealt with, in owning about a dozen vehicles. Perhaps spoiled by smooth and lush drive of my Odyssey. 2013 Model S (not air suspension) doesn't have this problem. Model 3 is also the funnest to drive.
  38. DanCar

    Why does Tesla suspension suck so bad?

    I like my Model 3 a lot. But the worst thing is the ride bumpyness. Cornering the car is great. But with bumps in the road it tosses my guts around.

    Autonomous Car Progress

    There maybe some commonality for some common tasks. If you can get some of the labeling done cheaply by some firm that hires low cost labor, then why not? I wouldn't be surprised if they all use amazon mechanical turk for some labeling tasks.

    Goof off poll: Which will come first: FSD or A.I. Bot in your home?

    I'm not familiar with Amazon Bot. Can you tell us more?

    What is the one feature you would like to see added to the Model Y?

    1. Softer suspension. Feel fewer bumps. Don't toss my guts around. 2. Birds eye view. 3. Driver side display. 4. Level 3 driverless on limited access freeway.

    CA DMV "revisiting" approach towards Tesla FSD

    What? You are not in favor of electrodes randomly shocking you to make sure you are paying attention? Maybe we could patent the idea for regular office chairs? If your desktop camera senses you're not paying attention, it sends some electrons your way. Can be used as an alternative to...

    Lidar vs Camera revisited

    Lidar night time visibility looks hard to dispute. You can make the headlight thing work at night, but I doubt it will work as well if lidar was helping. When is pothole avoidance going to work? Will lidar help know how deep? Elon says a lot of things about FSD. Every long term statement has...

    Does that mean 10.8 should be called v12?

    Elon: FSD Beta tweets

    Agree. I'm not sure I'd be happy if it works well in the desert, where I don't drive normally. Although if it works better in some conditions, like level 3 on freeways in slow moving traffic, then that would be great.

    FSD Beta accidents

    @flyhighboi20 Video would be very interesting. Thanks for posting! Alternative to expensive lidar would be camera that is highly optimized for night vision? Will or would: Dual pdaf camera also help, to capture a depth map? Center mounted roof light be a good idea? Matrix led lights eventually...
