Now you're talking some next level Blade Runner Cyber future cool stuff.I'm curious with Cybertuck having all those cameras and computer power. Will it be possible for it to do 3-D mapping of the terrain in front of you to help pick your line and adjust suspension on the fly. And for that matter, could it see an obstacle/rock in your path that's a possible issue and give you a warning. I can think of tons of benefits to having all that self driving equipment on board even while off-road. 49 Willy's BA HUMBUG!!
Yep, Portal Axles are fantastic off road for a couple of reasons.I had a HUMMER XLC2 in 1994. Articulated hubs are what sets the HUMVEE apart from the rest. HANDS DOWN!!
imo that's the only setup that'll beat Cybertruck.
I’m good with something halfway between a raptor and a hummer. Thanks for the correction.Oh, one other issue. I decided to look up the H1 dimensions and they really aren’t that close to the CT. Even if Elon shrinks everything by 3%, the CT will be a whole meter longer with 0.4m longer wheelbase , meaning on average 0.3m or 1’ longer overhangs at each end. That is going to give much worse approach (37° vs 72°), break-over (CT not published) and departure (28° vs 37°) angles so CT won’t be able to do all that fancy stuff in your Hummer montage.
For reference, Raptor has 30.2° and 23.1° approach and departure, Rubicon has 42.2° and 32.5°, so the CT is about half way in between with 37° and 28°. I’m totally fine with the CT being the same size as a Raptor with better geometry, even if the geometry isn’t as good as a Rubicon or H1.
You acknowledged that the CT is never going to be as good at technical rock-crawling so we’re on the same page there. I just think it’s wrong to equate the CT to the H1 just because the clearance is the same.
