"Generally speaking, that shouldn't happen with any car which has a differential-- including the rear wheels on the Tesla Model S. The gearing in the differential will allow one wheel to maintain traction while the other spins. Traction control…"
I looked up traction control and found a Wiki listing but was very dissatisfied with their comments.
Each wheel is equipped with a sensor which senses changes in its speed due to loss of traction.
The sensed speed…"

"LOL! Sure, why not? I wanna be a fly on the wall when a Police commissioner tries to convince the city council to pay ~110-120 thousand dollars for one single patrol car... and that's before the after-market modifications necessary to turn it…"
"I would think at some point the rubber in the tires would start to slip with the pavement.
I assume the Model S can somehow sense this and throttle back to keep it just at the
optimal torque. Anybody know?"
"Tesla Model S P85D Firmware Update To Cut 0-60 MPH Time To 2.8 Seconds?
It's great that Tesla can keep getting attention by shaving tenths of seconds off the 0-60 time, but I confess the difference between, say, 3 seconds and 5 seconds, is…"
"Well, the comments are interesting.
Superficially, an SUV, like a minivan, allows a driver to carry several passengers, which is convenient for "soccer moms". Also, the "falcon wing" doors on the Model X are designed to make it…"
"Tesla P85D Insane Mode Launch Reactions Compilation - Explicit Version:
Watch it and weep all yo street drag racers that have to make a big noise so as to cover up your inadequate manhood;-)
I have applied for a Copyright. I do not have the where-withal to pursue a patent right now anyway, and the gist of my work is essentially the 2D design. I'm planning to get my prototype cut on an Epilog laser by some friends of mine. I've been investigating a photo etching process. I have done some small experiments in that vein, but my main worry is precision with the photo etching process. I lost almost all my work when my computer crashed over a year ago. Ive now reconstructed most of it. The last layout took a whole weekend to draw up, and was so complex it locked up CorelDrawX3 three or four times. Each time, I had to go back and start over with my last saved work. The vector graphic is more than 90 megabytes. There are eleven fractal iterations. It was approaching the physical limits of my printer and computer.
