Submission + - Ferrari Unveils New Car Tech Idea: Make Car Go Really Fast (motorauthority.com)

cartechboy writes: Forget EV batteries and autonomous driving. Ferrari understands old-school advanced car tech — basically, let's make the thing go ridiculously fast. The Italians showed off very serious chasis technology today in the new Ferrari Speciale at the Frankfurt Auto Show. The new electronic "Side Slip angle Control" system (SSC) (world first in a production car) uses algorithms that compute and analyze lateral acceleration, yaw angle, steering wheel angle and wheel speed in real-time. The system compares these readings to target data, and then just adjusts traction control and electric differential, like boom. Basically, humans want to go as fast as possible. This technology may allow us to do that. ( Top speed: 202 mph.)

If you can't learn to do it well, learn to enjoy doing it badly.
