Tug of war means nothing unless both vehicles are on cogged track with cogged wheels.
Yeah, this behavior baffles me. I have no idea what frightens them so much about cleaner air, faster cars, cheaper cost to drive. The whole "rolling coal" and "ICEing" thing where they block chargers is a sure sign of sociopathy. And Tesla seems to be the main target for some reason, with dozens of vids being shared every day of people keying or otherwise vandalizing Tesla cars for no apparent reason (Tesla has integrated security cameras on a lot of models).theres a breed of conservative *** who for some reason delights in polution and is terrified of progress and electric vehicles are the stuff of their night terrors. I recently commented on a car and driver face book post and no less than three sad boys went on rants about sitting in front of the california governors mansion and smoking not only their emission deleted smog machines but destroying their tires in hours long burnouts.......apparently there's some desperate hope this goofy act will somehow get them laid, finally.
A Mack Triplex will do all of that!snap driveshafts and axles, and tear off the wheel bolts or cause the rims to spin inside the tires due to the high torque being applied instantly.
Good statement, but too bad you already dragged yourself into it. I ignored the 1st TDS statement, but the second one was enough. You see there are bad people on both sides of the ideology game, to single one side out is just foolish.It's funny when technology and new products become symbols of some sort of political fealty. We've really gone backwards as a nation and a people. I blame the easy access to editorial opinions passed off as "facts", and the people who don't know the difference. Yes, on both "sides". Oh, and the dysfunctional "two party system" that continues to purposefully divide people solely to get power and money, manipulating the gullible into rabid supporters who simply shout the party talking points and never actually think for themself.
We've been down this road before on this forum. It's bumpy, and a dead end.
It's funny that we're (USA) ramping up production to squeeze every last drop. If it were me, I'd continue buying crude from other countries until they didn't have any, and we (USA) had the last major reserves on the planet. I guess in the big picture it improves the economy via transport and trade, but when we are done with all the easy to get oil the crash is going to be HUGE, globally. Personally, I don't think the temporary economic gains of increasing production are worth the global depression when cheap oil runs out. But the people facilitating this oil production/use increase will all be dead by then, so what do they care? We're a nation of locusts, more or less. The parable of the Ant and the Grasshopper comes to mind, except the human ant in the future isn't likely to save the grasshopper. The real waste is that we're not using the oil to create industries and infrastructure that will last beyond the demise of oil, we're mainly using it for convenience and entertainment. Just burning it up, like a pile of boards used to make a campfire to keep warm instead of using them to make a building to go in to be warm.We are living in a bubble, Peak Oil was 20 years ago and now we are squeezing the last drops of oil out of the ground with Fracking. At some point, Probably not too far off in time, Gas prices will go back up.
