    Yoke to Steering wheel; is this too obvious?

    You make it sound so elegant. So far I haven’t seen anyone use the yoke that way. This is the most positive video review I could find so far, and it’s not pretty.

    Price Increases?

    I love the energy in this thread. Tesla honors their prices, so if you got a pre-order in before they removed the pricing, you'll be grandfathered in to the price you reserved at.

    Yoke to Steering wheel; is this too obvious?

    Interesting, I didn't know that. But you can't exactly to do hand-to-hand or shuffle steering with a yoke either.

    Yoke to Steering wheel; is this too obvious?

    Again, this isn't a matter of personal preference. This is a matter of a tool failing at it's primary job. But yes let's see what other people who have driven it think. Motor Trend: (Check out the video of them steering.) Consumer Reports: The fact there are replacement steering wheels...

    Yoke to Steering wheel; is this too obvious?

    Improve something? Go ahead. Make something functionality worse because it looks sci-fi? Pleeeease don’t.

    Yoke to Steering wheel; is this too obvious?

    It’s not a matter of getting used to anything, it’s a matter of using the wrong tool for the job. They’re “fixing something that ain’t broke,” and in doing so they’re making it worse and potentially dangerous. Hand over hand steering, something we all do every time we make a 90 degree turn, is...

    I'm new to this conversation, but an early Cybertruck order.

    It comes in any color you want! As long as that color is ultra-hard 30X cold-rolled stainless steel. I’m sure there will be wraps for it after it comes out, but I’ve heard concerns of how wrapping it might damage the steel.

    No Resale on the Lightning

    I think this is a great policy. It prevents artificial scarcity from developing from scalpers and resellers. It prevents wasteful middlemen and keeps prices down for everyone. I hope they can fix their dealer markup problem.

    Is there any hope for the 40k Cybertruck?

    This is basically the opposite of what everyone who is promoting a Cybertruck price increase is doing, to everyone's detriment. Not a single soul wants to pay more for anything, yet I've seen too many posts about "Oh, $80k MINIMUM!" and "Ha! Good luck getting in under $100k!!" It's more than a...

    Yoke to Steering wheel; is this too obvious?

    This is a classic case of disconnected corporate goons valuing form over function. The yoke, without steer by wire and/or speed dependent turning curve, is a safety hazard. And no physical blinkers? No physical horn? No physical shifter? They took something most American's can operate...

    Is there any hope for the 40k Cybertruck?

    Tesla said they’d sell a $39.9k truck, so Tesla will sell a $39.9k truck. Not everyone needs a 4x4, 5 second 0-60, 12,000 pound towing monster truck, most people just need a simple work truck that will haul a crew and some cargo from point A to point B. It would be a shoe-in for farmers...

    SpaceX employees denounce CEO Musk as 'distraction': letter [CLOSED DUE TO POLITICS]

    Exactly my thought as well. Innovative tech companies who are solving problems never solved before don’t want mindless yes-men drones, they want innovative, confident free-thinkers who aren’t afraid to introduce new ideas or criticize bad ones. I thought that’s what kind of companies Musk ran...

    SpaceX employees denounce CEO Musk as 'distraction': letter [CLOSED DUE TO POLITICS]

    if you’re trying to encourage people to do their job without ruffling any feathers, don’t use the scene from The Matrix that demonstrates how modern work environments are designed to break your spirit and encourage blind conformity and obedience. Because that inevitably leads to Neos ascending...

    SpaceX employees denounce CEO Musk as 'distraction': letter [CLOSED DUE TO POLITICS]

    Well. Elon Musk's SpaceX fires at least five for letter criticizing him Can't say I'm surprised. This kind of attitude to criticism stifles innovation, and lets objectively bad choices through the pipeline (like the steering yoke on a car without drive-by-wire or an appropriate steering ratio).

    SpaceX employees denounce CEO Musk as 'distraction': letter [CLOSED DUE TO POLITICS]

    There is a lot of anti-worker sentiment in this thread and a lot of apologism for a man who routinely mistreats employees and others in his personal life. Elon is a liability that will have to be dealt with eventually in all of his companies. He’s unstable and polarizing and these attributes...
