PostHeaderIcon And We Thought Drones Were Limited to Flying!

Drones have been a small staple in our existence for the past few years. What started out as an expensive (depending on your perspective) toy for the rich and shameless, can now be had by anyone with $20 in the bank and a desire to drive household pets absolutely crazy. But, the definition of “drone” is set to change in the future with the introduction of the StreetDrone One. SteetDrone is an organization led by Mike Potts and Mark Preston, the latter of which has done extensive work in Formula E and has even worked with McLaren. These two men look to “accelerate and democratize the development of self-driving, electric vehicles.”

Self-driving cars are coming, no doubt, but the problem with autonomous technology and even electric cars is that development and testing are expensive – leaving development and testing of these new technologies in the hands of the large, wealthy automakers. But, that’s not the way dreams come true, is it? Hell, brands like Apple, HP, and even Google all started in someone’s garage, but with the insane cost of development and testing, there’s no chance a “little guy” could ever develop a true autonomous system without an excessive amount of money. StreetDrone One looks to change all of that by providing an affordable test bed that allows you to implement your own self-driving software and test it in the real world. Ultimately, it will bring autonomous development to the masses instead of leaving it in the hands of large automakers.

What we’re talking about here is a car, based on the Renault Twizy, that comes ready for programming so coders like you can see just how well your autonomous programming works without relying on computer simulation.

PostHeaderIcon Learn How to Obsessively Clean Your Car's Wheels: Video

Have you ever wondered what goes into keeping a car looking better than new? For most of us, cars are a tool of life, but there are some people out that literally spend an entire day each week to cleaning and perfecting their car inside and out. To put it into perspective, the $100 details offered by your local car wash make your car like clean and misguidedly like new, but a real, obsessive detail will set you back hundreds of dollars and at least a day’s worth of time. One part of obsessive detailing means keeping your wheels clean. It can be extremely difficult if you have to drive your car in the winter and don’t have winter wheels, but the guys over at AMMO have put together a video. describing just what goes into keeping wheels car-show clean as well as the brake system and the wheel wells.

You’ll want to watch the whole video to get the full gist of what you’ve got to do, but in short, there are multiple steps to cleaning your wheels that will seem obsessive to most, but a necessity to the few who take pride in having the cleanest and best looking cars out there. And, if this seems like too much to you, that’s okay – it’s not for everybody. But, if you have a really nice car that you like to show off, and you do a lot to keep the body and paint in awesome condition – I’m talking about mirror-like shine – then you probably want to go to the extent of excessively cleaning the wheels, wheel wells, and brake system. Even if this kind of obsessive car care isn’t for you, now you’ll understand why someone who is that into it will freak out over a small scratch or some dirt when it wouldn’t make you think twice.

With that said, go ahead and click play, then let us know what you think in the comments section below.

PostHeaderIcon Maintenance Procedures You can do Yourself and Save a Little Cash: Part 1

Owning a car certainly has its benefits, but it can be somewhat expensive to keep up on maintenance. Some of us have been doing our own basic maintenance for years, while others are afraid of messing something up and would rather leave that to the “professionals.” I emphasize the word “professionals” because if you routinely hit up an oil change location or any random garage, you may be trusting your ride to technicians without formal training. These techs are often pressed to race the clock, as well.

In all fairness, I spent a couple of my younger years as a Valvoline tech and received plenty of on-the-job training. Still, there’s nothing like doing your own maintenance. You can actually save yourself a decent chunk of money performing some basic maintenance yourself. And, in doing so, you’ll also get to know your car better and have a nice sense of accomplishment when you’re done.

In this article, I’ll cover some of the basic maintenance procedures that can be done with minimal tools and a little bit of elbow grease. Of course, every make and model are different, so it might be a good idea to invest in a manual for your vehicle. For the most part, however, each process can be summed up in general, and it just might give you the confidence to try it yourself. Some of the topics I’m covering are really basic – like changing an air filter, for instance – but even something like changing your own transmission fluid could be within the realm of your abilities, and you didn’t even know it.

So, let’s take a gentle first step into the world of performing your own car maintenance.
