    Forza Motorsport 7 thread

    likewise you can add clutch to cars that never had them.... I look at it as the game is modeling the car, and auto transmission just means the game handles the shifting for you. It is an aid, similar to TC, ST, steer assist, braking line, etc.

    Forza Motorsport 7 thread

    However with the case of C7 Z06, the game only models one version. You can still shift the automatic manually IRL, so which version should T10 use in game?

    Forza Motorsport 7 thread

    Well with a manual I might be tempted to skip shift down whereas with a sequential, I can not. However for the point of wrestling a car around a track, just how big of a difference do you think there is? Tens of milliseconds of torque interruption is all. Doesn't matter whether it's a wet auto...

    Are you talking torque interruption time between shifts? I honestly don't understand where the difference is that you are seeking.

    I still think the pinnacle of the series might be FM4 with FM6 being a very close second. I miss the additional fictional tracks and the groupings that encouraged trying new cars, modding and tuning them. I feel like at this point the FM series ought to go just race cars at this point and let...

    2 Pumps, 2 Loops, 1 Reservoir: Have you ever?

    Personally I like the idea, and if I had a second pump I'd give it a go, just because. I am debating going fully parallel on my next setup. I have had the blocks (2x gpu, 1x CPU) parallel, but the radiators in serial without issue for many a year now. But reality is, given the flow rate, it's...

    Air pressure testing loop with CO2

    If the pressure is too high you'll blow out a seal/o-ring/gasket. Doesn't matter what the gas is (assuming not caustic), too much pressure will find a way out. I have ran a vacuum test successfully.before however.

    It is believed they actually used a based 2.7 EB F150, which is even lower numbers, but no marketer is ever fair, and Tesla has always had a fluid relationship with the truth in advertising.

    Tesla Unveils Radical Cybertruck.

    The Raptor 3.5 EB is actually 510ft-lbs, but that truck doesn't have the peak tow or payload capacity due to its special suspension. However it would 8921 ft-lbs The 5.0 V8 is 400ft-lbs at 4500rpm. So not only less torque, but also higher in the rpm curve. The Diesel F150 is rated at...

    Tesla Unveils Radical Cybertruck.

    Running the numbers: 470ft-lbs at 2500rpm is peak torque for the 3.5 EB motor. Most stall points are between 2000-3000 rpm, so going to assume we can reach peak torque at the converter stall. 1st gear ratio is 4.69:1 in the 10AT. Differential Ratio of 3.73:1. So 470ft-lbs x 4.69 x 3.73 = 8222...

    The Fisker Karma did this. It was audible to about 20mph when the tire noise overcame it. You can find YouTube videos of it.

    Tesla Unveils Radical Cybertruck.

    167 kw hour in 5 gallons of gas. Average generator is 18-20% efficient. So approx 25 gallons to fill 150kw pack. 5kw genset has a burn rate of 18 gallons per 24hrs on average. So 31hrs to fill if done continuously. Not impossible, but a lot of effort to make a square peg for in a round hole.

    500mi range is a 70k buy in. Solar is an unknown additional. A midsize that meets my needs is 35-40k, A 1/2t is 40-50k. 70k buys a diesel 3/4t that is twice the Tesla. LOL at having to buy a generator and fuel tank for my EV.

    Last one I pulled was within mid-size truck limits. However for my use case, I enjoy exploring the desert region east of me. It's over 100 miles each way, going from sea level, over 5k ft then back down to sea level. Current round trip is in the 250-300mi range which includes a little bit of...

    90% of half ton truck towing is under 9000lbs. So while 14k lbs makes for great magazine/tablet comparisons, its mostly wasted. show me a truck that does not require trailer brakes for any load greater than 1500-2000lbs. you won't. DOT and NHSA already require them. however the majority of...

    I wouldn't read too much into the pre-orders. It is a 100$ refundable buy-in. That's a cheap investment for speculators thinking they sell their reservation spot later.

    Tesla Unveils Radical Cybertruck.

    Problem is not every destination allows for recharging and optimal range. San Diego to Ocotillo Wells OHV area is 100miles each way, and there are no superchargers in the desert. Plus you have to climb over a 5000ft pass to get there and back, and climate control is needed. 300mi range is going...

    My current board is/was an MSI and I did the update. I might be the only one on the planet that preferred the new GUI as I could never find what I wanted in their old one, and I grew up on the Phoenix BIOS anyways. Worked out well that I had, because the chip I had access to was a 3400g. That...

    My x370 board died and I don't have the budget to replace the 1700x that is sitting in it. So with that excluding the current crop of x570 out there, the leaves me with looking at another x370 or move to x470. Hardocp on mobile is not allowing me to read old reviews, so what would be...

    Windows 10 users fume: Microsoft, where's our 'local account' option gone?

    I have an old laptop at work. My account on it is tied to my MS account for various reasons.

    FCC bans Robocalls-Texts

    which is exactly how you beat the system. I get 1-2 robocalls a week. If you don't know the number, answer and hit mute. The system listens for a voice response then connects to a call center. No voice and it logs it as a dead number. No further calls from that phone bank. Do it long enough and...

    If it's full pints, then maybe, given the standard 12 - 14$ price per pint. If it's 4oz pours like most places, then I got no idea where that number comes from. I know the 42$ cocktail comes in a souvenir glassware, which explains it's price in comparison to everything else, so perhaps the...
