Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

***TACOMA UPDATE***

I ended up working on the frame for a solid 5 hours last night. got the bad side reinforced so that it's solid enough to be drivable. I'm now driving it around town a bit just to stretch it's legs. I certainly won't take it out on the highway, or put any kind of load on it yet. 

 

 

Also, FYI, welding underneath a truck without a lift is hard.

where is most of the damage again? if it was like near the bed, maybe you could have attempted to remove the bed to gain access to it? If it was cab then um super high jack stands?

Cost to low earth orbit is about $1300/lb. I really doubt that roadster has a battery in it at all. 

It was a payload test, wasn't it? Why wouldn't they include the weight if that was the point of the entire launch?

The point of the launch was to get a satellite into orbit, then they used the extra payload capacity to do a publicity stunt.

definitely won't be fun to be paying for stuff when i move to the bay area possibly for college once i transfer out of cc here. food, driving, housing (that's gonna suck big time, especially rent), and that sales tax is gonna hurt my wallet even more.

 

and i was a bit off on sales tax here. it's actually 7.875 percent. Still terrible compared to the rest of the state, and the country. 

Yep. It's expensive to live here, and not getting any cheaper.

 

On the flip side, there are four awesome tracks within a 4hr drive and if you have the budget, there are events every weekend year round to suit your variety of motorsport pleasure.

 

I don't miss being a college student. Unfortunately it's a cruel realization that when you had no money, you had all the time in the world. Once you start earning enough money to fund your hobby, you don't have much time to spend on it.

 

Pretty much why I still have a PC from 2010 and don't game much at all anymore, just no time for it and racing and music, so gaming lost.

oh wow. I didn't realize it was that much.

so wait it costs over $200k per person... not counting all the extra stuff humans require to support their livlihood in orbit? Holy cow that's expensive lol

There was no satellite (in the conventional sense*). It was the falcon heavy's maiden flight so the only payload was a mass simulator in this case a roadster. In most cases however its ether a dummy capsule or something like this

*Technically the roadster would be a artificial satellite as well since its orbiting a larger body

My sense of money might be a little bit skewed because I see how much other garbage costs, $200k to chuck a body in to space is dirt cheap compared to other things. :D

yeah I believe Virgin Galactic is the cheapest around $200k but they haven't actually started taking tourists to space yet. The most recent tourist spent something like 40 million for a little over a week in space.

plan is 2 years of cc, get an AA-T in computer science, then hopefully be able to transfer to uc berkeley, then graduate with bachelors, then hopefully be able to land a job in silicon valley and make a living there, if possible.

Sadly as time goes on I cannot help but agree with this. I want to believe he's just a big nerd trying to do good in the works but comments like those (regardless if he's being told to shove a submarine in his ass) is disheartening

there's good money in computer science. But you wont get anywhere without planning as you go. You'll get the education... but make plans on what to do with that education beyond the simple "idk... get a job". ask yourself what would you like to accomplish when you do land that job...

best of luck my friend.
