At one time Slashdot's code was open source, and was available for download (and this older version still is available on GitHub). Is there any chance to see the current code made open source again. I would love to see what has changed in the code to make it what it is today.
Wait a sec, SJW articles are supposed to be posted only on Fridays. That way people have time to get the latest penis and vagina counts for their office.
Since it is a holiday in the States this week, we have to post the Friday stories early.
When rotors warp there is a single answer as to why. They were not designed/manufactured thick enough. Don't blame driving styles or any bullshit like that. Brake rotors should be able to glow red and still not warp.
Worse still, with the regenerative braking system there the rotors shouldn't even need to be as high-spec as those in comparable sports cars.
And that is why there is an issue. Regenerative breaking does not help much when you do a panic stop on the highway from 65 MPH. A smaller sized rotor would be easier to warp in that scenario.
In any formula, constants (especially those obtained from handbooks) are to be treated as variables.
