I attended the Silicon Valley Comic Con This past weekend. It was the first one I’ve been to one and I enjoyed everything about it. From the cosplayers, to the celebs roaming around, to the artists working on art right in front of your eyes. It was great!
But. I absolutely loved this thing. Mint condition too. Car cosplay is great too!
There was also Top Gun helmets on display. Inspiration for piloting my own fighters.
The weather has been nice enough (lazy *ahem*) to make a walkthrough video. This has been something that I have been trying to do since I got the car. Everyone loves videos… So here it is! (I’ll try to get more videos going)
Also, I am preparing for the first Reno Drift coming up on the 29th. I picked up a set of drift spares last week. They are nothing special; some 17×7’s +42 universal 4 lug (meaning: look for these on the Z as well). I have this set of 4 and the 13’s that came with the car as well which equates to four sets of tires. I should be good.
I kinda like how the 17’s look
So fitted. Such Underflush
All I need now is to figure out my differential situation and I’ll be set. I also may have some plastidip action coming soon.
Elon Musk is a monster. An innovative genius.
Who? Who in the tech/innovative industry would surrender their “competitive advantage” for the “greater good”? Especially with the threat of that kind of information finding its way into the eyes of companies(and countries) who would/can do it cheaper/possibly better (China). Companies get sued for billions of dollars for things like this. (See Samsung and Apple). Its like an open invitation fort tech companies to “challenge” Tesla and even Elon Musk himself or maybe even help him finish the journey that he is already on. From a tech stand point, open sharing of information inspires growth and innovation. From a business standpoint, I’m sure there are people who have money in Tesla that are squirmy from this news.
From the man himself:
He may have started something very interesting …or may have thrown away a lot of money.
