Recommend reading #Austin
UT physicist John Goodenough changed our lives with his pioneering battery research—and he isn’t done yet. On a Monday morning in March, a thunderstorm is pelting the UT campus with heavy sheets of rain. Bleary-eyed students stumble into the Engineering Teaching Center to wait out the worst of the downpour, shaking off umbrellas and jackets.…

Moving away from "swoopy" - Green car is from 2013, black car is from earlier this year. Emphasis is on lightweight and making power. The thousands of hours spent on complex compound curves to gain tiny fraction in drag reduction not worth it (solar car folks take note!)

It’s summertime, so millions of Americans are packing up the car and hitting the road—and so are we! We’ve chosen Austin, Texas, as a new testing location for our project, and one of our Lexus SUVs is there now, with safety drivers aboard, driving a few square miles north and northeast of downtown Austin. It’s important for us to get experience testing our software in different driving environments, traffic patterns and road conditions—so we’re ready to take on Austin’s pedicabs, pickup trucks, and everything in between. Keep it weird for us, Austin, and visit our website to let us know how we’re driving.

E36 in background is all "C'mon slowpoke, let's go!" :P
 
Notice anything new on the streets of Mountain View, California? Our latest prototype vehicles are ready for the road and a few of them are now cruising around town! 

These prototype vehicles are designed from the ground up to be fully self-driving. They’re ultimately designed to work without a steering wheel or pedals, but during this phase of our project we’ll have safety drivers aboard with a removable steering wheel, accelerator pedal, and brake pedal that allow them to take over driving if needed. The prototypes’ speed is capped at a neighborhood-friendly 25mph, and they’ll drive using the same software that our existing Lexus vehicles use—the same fleet that has self-driven over 1 million miles since we started the project. 

As we start to cruise around the neighborhood, we really want to hear what our neighbors think. To learn more about our project or to leave feedback on how we’re driving, please visit our website: www.google.com/selfdrivingcar.

See you on the road!

But will it have a traditional, three-pedal, stick shift, manual transmission?...
 
Toyota and BMW shared a beautiful sporst-car night together. Meet the new Supra.

http://blog.caranddriver.com/der-supra-east-meets-west-in-the-toyotabmw-sports-car-partnership/
From the April 2015 issue You can see why Toyota and BMW would choose the code name “Silk Road” to describe their collaborative effort to build a new generation of sports cars. East meets West and all that. We will forgive the companies the minor historical inaccuracy—the Silk Road trade route never extended to Japan […]

I love high performance bearings (for my bicycle and solar cars), check out the latest development from Coo Space.

Ddamn those comments make you think. Seems to be better suited for heavy load usage better than light, but I would have to use them in my inline skates to know if they are better.
