I would drive the shit out of that car

[-] Hubi@feddit.de 41 points 9 months ago

The good news is: It's free

The bad news is: You have to compile it yourself

Those fights with the better half over building an IKEA bookshelf will seem like child play after that.

Those headlights look so easy to replace.

[-] rmuk@feddit.uk 59 points 9 months ago

I just want a simple car. One without extraneous functions.

My old boss bought a brand new car that was in the shop for two of it's first four weeks. The issue? The capacitive touch sensor that operated the motorised glove box door was activating automatically because it was being confused by dust.

My shitty 15 year old VW's plastic glove box door has a metal latch and had never experienced this bug.

[-] brygphilomena@lemmy.world 19 points 9 months ago

There certainly are places where technology and electronics can improve a car, but replacing one of the most basic, reliable mechanical functions such as a latch is arguably stupid. It's just adding numerous more failure points. It's form over function.

[-] TheWoozy@lemmy.world 14 points 9 months ago

Radio/media and climate controls should not be on a f*ing touch screen either.

[-] ekky43@lemmy.dbzer0.com 7 points 9 months ago

How tf are you meant to change the climate settings on a touch screen when not looking at it? Is this where the "touch" in "touch screen" comes in?

[-] ricdeh@lemmy.world 8 points 9 months ago

Yep, there are many legitimate use-cases for electronics in cars, but THIS is definitely not one of them!

[-] reagansrottencorpse@lemmy.world 7 points 9 months ago

Yeah I got my car 2012 right before you started to see everything in cars become computerized. It's a civic and still going strong.

“i upgraded the engine and one of the wheels stopped working”

[-] Agent641@lemmy.world 24 points 9 months ago

Why are you using wheels anyway? Caterpillar tracks are a more modern solution and superior in every way.

[-] thawed_caveman@lemmy.world 10 points 9 months ago

I wonder what's the fastest you could go on tracks? Apparently a record was set in 1979 (121.9 km/h, 75 mph) and never broken since as far as i can tell, or at least Guiness doesn't seem to know anything about it.

Fellas, we need a tank, a couple V8 engines, and a case of beer

[-] MonkderZweite@feddit.ch 10 points 9 months ago

Your cardan.shaft is out of date, the interface for the wheels changed.

[-] rob_t_firefly@lemmy.world 47 points 9 months ago

For those who, like me, wanted to know more about the real photo from which this was shopped: it's a 19-year-old Chinese student called Zhu Zhenlin driving his homemade solar car in 2012.

There actually exists an open source community for reverse-engineering EV motors, inverters, battery charging modules, BMS, and everything else necessary to build a DIY car from scrapyard components: https://openinverter.org/wiki/Main_Page

You joke but I don't want modern cars because of the proprietary software.

I'd drive the shit out of that around town

Great car, the only one I'd consider driving! But would make my own fork with rearview mirrors first.

Honestly, if it's cheap enough, I'd definitely buy it

[-] peyotecosmico@programming.dev 12 points 9 months ago

This made me chuckle, thank you, I need it today.

[-] usrtrv@lemmy.ml 11 points 9 months ago

Looks like a car from CDDA.

Torvalds Motors

"Not car. Actually, it's GNU/Car." What precedes this is the sound of thousands of glasses being adjusted.

[-] h0r57@lemmy.dbzer0.com 9 points 9 months ago

I overclocked it and got an extra 4 FPS! Woot!

[-] sorrowl@lemmy.blahaj.zone 9 points 9 months ago
