So your life decisions are made based on corporations?

I'm sure there's plenty of money to made with driverless cars. But that doesn't mean that everyone is going to buy one and that everyone one will stop driving their own cars in a few months.

Try thinking for yourself.


Chevy runs deep, don't step in Chevy.

What "life decision" did I make, again? lol

Who said anything about a few months, save you? We're talking decades out.

I certainly won't be buying a car that drives itself, but I'm sure you can agree most people aren't excited about driving and would have a lot of interest in a driver-less car. If the tech was here today and the price point was similar to regular vehicles I believe people would choose the driver-less.

Since the entirety of our conversation is rooted in speculation I am, by definition, thinking for myself lol.

I understand your points and I hope you're right!

Not sure I follow you

You tell a guy its a waste to consider becoming a tuner, because electric cars and driverless cars are coming soon.

I'd say that if you avoid a career because of an article in a magazine based on speculation, that's a life decision.

Now you're saying its decades away and you wouldn't buy one.

So back on topic. I think learning how to tune engines would be great. If you get really good at it, people will seek you out.

I don't think you do, either. Lol

I said I would advise against taking the steps to become a tuner right now, and I stand by that for more reasons than just the current argument. Tuning appeals to a niche group and is a competitive market.

My argument was always the tech is at least 20 years out. It may, or may not, be here before he retires. If it is, that would be no Bueno for him.

That being said, anyone wanting to get into tuning right now should be aware of anything that may threaten the field. All the information out, on both sides, is speculation. So yes, I'd recommend he take a look at a handful of articles and pick the side he agrees with.

Also, that's correct that I wouldn't be buying a driverless car.

Hope that clears up some confusion for ya, lol

Way to bring up a thread that was pretty much laid to rest?

I still stand behind my predictions.

That article says nothing specific and is pure speculation. Did you even listen to the video? The guy interviewed says that 2020 is way too early for a apple to release a car, and that the mass public isnt behind the idea of an electric car.

Do you even own a mustang? Go sell it and buy a Prius or some other electric econobox, seems more your style.

Why do you keep defending this crap? You admitted you would not buy any of it.
Typical eco sustainable green garbage you push on everyone else but yourself.
Posting a link to some future speculation proves nothing.
Let it go.

Even if they did, which is highly improbable by 2020, would they build their own cars, or partner with a manufacturer? Who would be at fault in an accident? What happens in a carjacking? What if the car gets hacked?

I was rather showing that another conglomerate is getting into either driverless cars or alternative fuel cars, the time frame was not an argument I was attempting to make. 5 years is too optimistic for anyone to hope for at this time, but it's not out of the question. As I've stated before, technology has been known to be released exponentially vs linearly.

We're all entitled to our opinions and for the record, I hope your's is correct. I personally just don't see it happening.

Actually, I haven't defended it at all. I'm just looking at the "bigger picture" and have a opinion that differs from yours. It's really not that big of a deal and certainly no reason to get so worked up. Lol

I don't think I ever once "pushed" anything in this discussion. If I did I apologize, lol.

Actually, it conveyed the point I was trying to make perfectly.

You don't have to get on this thread anymore if it bothers you, ya know. Lol

You keep changing your point depending on the rebuttal.
Originally you said that tuning Cardenas obsolete and not worth pursuing.

The market is shifting towards electric cars and the current market for all things aftermarket in the car industry, not just tunes, is dissolving slowly (especially aftermarket car audio).

This isn't a market I would feel good about jumping into right now, but that's just me.

So you keep posting speculative articles to make point.
Then you say it may not happen soon and you wouldn't buy it anyway.
Now it's ... Oh it's just my opinion.

The whole point of the thread was about someone wanting to get into tuning. Which you think is a bad idea.
So currently there are 100k plus of cars that need tunes and for the foreseeable future.
So learning how to tune cars now is probably a good idea.

I do think getting into tuning right now is not a great idea. I think there are FAR more secure fields in the automotive industry that tuning. That is, in fact, my opinion and has been from the start.

I'm not sure where the confusion is and why everyone gets so worked up over the thought of newer, better, and different tech being released soon.its quite lolzy, to say the least.

I think that there are some folks at mtp and sct and bama and lund racing that would disagree and thats just the top names. Thats not the little shops all over the country that tune and most i am sure arent complaining.
