post #23326 of 26282
speaking of hotboxing, when I read this headline:

http://pagesix.com/2016/06/16/lil-waynes-crew-hotboxes-fancy-la-hotel/

I was like "daaaaamn bro, crew rolls up and starts farting so bad it makes the gossip news!!" But no, they meant marijuana hotboxing.

One of the few times in my life I've smoked, we hotboxed a 240sx in undergrad. It also had bioweapon defense mode - we called it by a different name though - rolling down the windows mode.

I'm no expert, but I don't think rolling down your windows will be effective in a bio attack. :D

Don't be sad.  Seems you're doing quite well for yourself.

I've done well for a guy with an associates in art history I suppose.

You think kids will lose the phrase "roll down windows"?  How many actual crank window cars are produced anymore?

Was perusing miata's on craigslist and this guy popped up. Guys looking to trade it for a bike.

 

Mileage is a bit higher, but I'm unsure if that's something to actually worry about in these if they're cared for. Can have a shop look over compression test etc. If I get rid of the bike, I can likely fit it in my garage for the winter as well.

Thoughts?

It's awesome you caught that reference. I was in the back passenger side and was asking my boy Ben to roll down the windows and it seemed like an eternity before his arm could roll it down. We were doing this ahead of a sorority party (even though I was never a frat bro - GDO for life). I was shotgunning in the back and felt like I was choking.

Looking back, that was a great college story. It came ahead of a hay ride with a date.

Tesla's response seems to be blaming the driver

""No force was detected on the steering wheel for over two minutes after autosteer was engaged," said Tesla, which added that it can detect even a very small amount of force, such as one hand resting on the wheel.
"As road conditions became increasingly uncertain, the vehicle again alerted the driver to put his hands on the wheel," said Tesla. "He did not do so and shortly thereafter the vehicle collided with a post on the edge of the roadway."

It looks pretty solid. If the checkout is kosher, go for it.

With used/out of warranty cars people, sometimes, tend to get into a race to the bottom and regret it later. Find a good mechanic and roll with his rec. You're a smart guy so you trust yourself for the ultimate judgement.

the rhetoric seems to be "if we tell you to take back control and you don't, then it's your fault, but if you do take back control, well then you were the one driving, so it's your fault"

I have a much more nuanced response that I never posted on this because I didn't want to make it a Tesla thread. I'm surprised it never popped up in this thread earlier. I'll post my thoughts in a bit over lunch.

Was Ben your date? Because if you spent all this time with him in the backseat, I'm gonna guess that the hay ride was completely unnecessary 😊
