lol that anyone thinks elon will face any sort of justice

there is no such thing as justice and even if there was he's personally rich enough to gently caress off and disappear if he notices legal heat that he can't otherwise destroy by throwing other people's money at it

it’s awesome that these flaws are being discovered so that future Tesla models can fix them. what, would you rather this doesn’t happen and that they never learn from the mistake? it just means revised Tesla’s will be even better now.

and as the lovely cars start getting called in tesla will find itself mysteriously far behind and in a negative news light, i hope

i'm so sad about this because even as little as two or three years ago i bought in to the musk glamour and even when it wore off i still thought the model 3 might be a good car that gets EVs more popularized

Thats pretty interesting, what happens to it? Does UV light ruin it or does it flake off or something?

How much does it cost to just paint the aircraft every time it needs to fly a real mission?

that's not what happens to it

the paint does need more maintenance than on older aircraft because it's full of iron nanoparticles and poo poo that doesn't really make for very durable paint in the first place, and if it starts flaking off the plane will be more visible to radar. that's the nature of stealth aircraft.

there was a thing with the b-2 where early versions of the RAM paint would wear away quickly when getting blasted with raindrops at 500mph, which is the source of the "paint melts off in the rain" story.

also what the gently caress is going on in that "I hit a small pot hole" picture? sure they're shoddily made but that's some crash test dummies toy poo poo where you tap the wheel and the car explodes
