Re: SSV1 and Modified Euro Section 1 Install Questions

Re: I'm 3D printing a sub woofer enclosure using tough PLA.How thick should the walls

I like the infinite baffle idea. Fabricating a battery compartment cover that seals to the battery compartment should be light and effective.

Re: Uber pulls self-driving cars after first fatal crash of autonomous vehicle

Re: Uber pulls self-driving cars after first fatal crash of autonomous vehicle

Re: Uber pulls self-driving cars after first fatal crash of autonomous vehicle

I'm interested in what the cause was. Only detail I've read is she was outside of the crosswalk.
