New Tesla Arcade Game Hands-On: Beach Buggy Racing 2

  • Published: 21 June 2019
  • A new wave of behind the wheel gameplay is coming to Tesla. The company announced that it has started rolling out Beach Buggy Racing 2 to vehicles today. A new, Tesla-compatible version of the mobile game by Vector Unit will be available on every vehicle with an over-the-air software update. And unlike the current selection of games in the Tesla Arcade, Beach Buggy Racing 2 has a twist: it has direct wiring to the car's brakes and steering wheel.

                Leave it to Engadget to make false claims such as "The Tesla is drive by wire" (hint: There's no such car that's drive by wire) while at the same time disproving themselves by showing that in fact the wheels turn when the steering wheel is turned because guess what? Like every car on the planet, the Tesla steers using a mechanical linkage.

                    If you have enough money to buy a Tesla you probably have enough money to replace the tires lol

                              Tesla: engineering experts who can't figure out how to lock the wheels and enable electric power steering when game mode is activated and would rather a restless client damage the two front tires and potentially wheel axles of the car which already requires clients to swap tyres more often than fuel powered vehicles on account of the excessive torque found in electric power trains. Good one, dich-heads.

                                It's a good thing you aren't a Tesla engineer since nothing you said is accurate.

                                    Lets port a mobile game into our cars because that's not dangerous at all, this has to be the most "ludicrous" feature Tesla has added. A poor mans Mario kart at best.

                                        Not to mention straining the steering linkages.

                                        more likely flat spots making a bad noise. remember the rest of the tire isnt on the ground, just that spot

                                      Change steering wheel sensitivities in settings for lower, it responds better.

                                            The second player's controller is lame. I hope that Tesla can come up with a better solution.

                                                  As a tesla owner let me just say this video is extremely misleading. The update is not out yet at all and it will be a considerable amount of time until it will actually be released.

                                                    As a Tesla owner, I've been playing the game for the past 4 days.

                                                    I got the update 2 days after with software on advanced.

                                                    I literally got this update like 12 hours ago. So it's out *now* (maybe not when this video was posted, but it'd been available to play in stores for several days and now it's available for the general public). 2 days is hardly a "considerable amount of time".
