Make Your Own Luck

Have you ever seen an expensive vehicle in person? They are one of the most awesome material objects that exist. It is unfortunate that within the United States the speed limit laws will limit you from experiencing the full potential of the vehicles. The way these vehicles are geared, you will be able to hit 90 MPH in 3rd gear easily; whereas with the conventional automobiles if you do this, you will most likely blow up your engine because you exceeded the engine RPM capabilities or your tires may not be rated correctly to handle the speed.  Was able to get to experience this today, the image below is the back end picture of a Ferrari, how many vehicles have you ever seen where the engine is not in the front of the car? Some vehicles like volkswagon or porsche had done designs like this, the Fiskar has a similar design but they actually fill up both the trunk and the hood to cram all their technology, then the Tesla has design elements that change this.  The other awesome design, and those of you who have ever played Need For Speed will create the correlation, having a conventional shifter in a vehicle is a waste of space, waste of resource and complicates the matter.  Paddle shifters? Yep those were in the high end whips but now this functionality is coming to the every day car, if you want to drive your car like a race car you can with the paddle shifters, there are options to apply that will accomodate your needs.  But just because you can drive it like a race car doesn’t mean that is what you should do, these vehicles have a lot of power and need to be driven in safe situations (ie sometimes booking a spot at the Race Track, switching out the tires, and mapping out the apex and pushing the vehicle to the limits).  The technology features that are now being introduced allow you to partner with the technology to meet your requirements.  How annoying is it to turn on your windshield wipers, then have to modify it to go from slow to medium to fast, etc as the rain picks up?  Auto sensing windshield wipers will cover this, just make sure to turn off the feature before going into a car wash. =)
