Shortly after the unveiling of Tesla’s Model 3 earlier this month, Elon Musk took to Twitter in a storm of information about the new car, mentioning that the target drag coefficient was 0.21.

Tesla has already shown us some sweet Easter Eggs hidden in the software of the Model S. But now there’s a new one, and if you’re a Mario Kart fan, you’ll love it.
Here we are. After years of hype and rumors, Tesla has revealed the entry-level Tesla Model 3: the sleek, high-performance electric sedan for the masses. Or so Elon Musk hopes.
Tesla is showing the world its all-new Model 3 this Thursday—a sub $35,000 all-electric sedan the company hopes will bring electric vehicles to the mainstream.

It’s no secret that professional model makers often use the same plastic model kits you can buy at a hobby shop, they’re just highly skilled at painting them to look incredibly realistic.

Building your own 13-foot long remote control replica of the U.S.S. Kitty Hawk is challenging enough. But what good’s an aircraft carrier without any aircraft? So to further up the challenge, its creators also found a way to land an RC plane on it.
On an earnings yesterday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk finally responded to “some fairly crazy” Model S Autopilot videos that show reckless idiots pushing the feature beyond where it’s supposed to go. He isn’t pleased.
Given the challenges with precision, building functional machines with a household 3D printer isn’t easy. And that’s why it’s all the more impressive that someone on the RC Groups forum has used a 3D printer to make a fully-functional scale model of a Boeing 787’s GE-built turbofan jet engine.
