@anthonyzingale , I'm not everyone. And don't doubt tech because of some faulty hubris. The ideas may have good use. But we don't need it everywhere. We will always have die hard people who want manual shifting, some people want slap shifting, some never want to touch a shifter. Granted, there are ideas that are just not...practical. cvt trans is not anywhere ideal for racing. Not for a while and should it ever? I personally research deep and wish to find out what I may and learn as much as I can. I may or may not know the truth and I work to avoid being wrong for a long time. My point is; everybody is not just you and two other people. Don't keep using that word in such a sense if it isn't true. I don't think emergency braking systems should be everywhere. I don't like them. I believe if you drive, you need to have a purpose of driving or you don't drive. If you are distracted, then don't drive. You are wasting your life if you don't live in the now. I get the message it sells to parents. I get it. That gets into lifestyle management so quickly, it's not funny for me. I will not hesitate to call someone out on their responsibility or lack thereof. It's intense, or it's wrong, it's so mean...it's life and death of yourself, you're loved ones, and others around you. If that doesn't connect, I have no sympathy. On the aspect of technological advancement and safer precautions at higher speeds, yes. Nobody is raising the speed limit here though. I'm not ranting. I'm not ranting. I'm not ranting. ...goosfraba...okay, does my perspective seem clear? I care about human life as much as the next guy. But I don't need someone to talk for me. I cant read your mind. I am not important enough to lead anyone. I am me. Anything engineers most likely either didn't care, or had enormous time crunching with a boss who wanted a certain feature and said do it or you're fired (Jason from engineering explained has said this was one of his motive for being a youtuber) or had bad craftsmanship, which is likely. There is so much that can sway a creative a manufacturing team.
