About the rising car industry:
Automobile industry is booming these days and facing lots of competition and that is making it ready to offer varieties. This thing is making its users choosier. Now you can easily pick one car of your range that assures you to provide all types of luxury. Two factors are more essential that your dream car must follow and that is affordability and comfort ability.
Induction Kit of a vehicle is used to filter the air which gets into the engine. Such filters are made out of paper and the main purpose of these filters is to filter the dust and dirt from air, thus helping the engine to perform well. It also reduces the noise of the engine and the performance of the engine is boosted up.
For the movement of your car, fuel is not the one factor necessary, as most of us think. It actually needs fuel, sparks and some amount of air. The air with oxygen is taken into the engine and with the help of the drops of fuels which is ignited with the spark of the battery of the car that helps the piston to move. This will ultimately make the car move.
Thus it is essential for the engine of the car to use a lot of air or oxygen for its movement. Air with more amounts of dirt and dust can only decrease the performance of the car. Hence it is essential to fix an air filter to the piston part of the car’s engine. Air filter with a large diameter can help the engine to take more oxygen. It is essential to keep the air filter spic and span, as a clean filter alone can help you increase the car’s performance. You can read more at http://gearheads.org
Purpose of induction kits
Use of Induction kits instead of air filter and air box is mainly recommended. This is because induction kit takes in more amount of cool air. Moreover, cool air has a larger amount of oxygen, which is essential for the smooth running of the engine.
An induction kit is cone shaped with brackets and pipe ready to be fit into any car. An induction kit of high quality lasts longer and it has to be noted that they last even better than air filters. They can be washed, cleaned and even oiled for getting a better span of life. With the help of an induction kit, you car can get that sporty roaring sound which most of us love.
Fuel efficiency of cars is something that a lot of people look into while buying a car and they would always prefer one that is good on mileage. With rising fuel costs the importance of fuel saving is a priority and therefore you will want to do what you can to save the amount of fuel that you car consumes. Here are some tips to help you save fuel and cut down your running costs.
Smart Way To Save Fuel
Always drive your car at lower speeds as the car consumes a lot more fuel when you are speeding around with the pedal to the metal. A reduction of speed from 200 km/h to 160 km/h is said to reduce fuel consumption by up to 50%. Use air conditioning smartly. Air conditioning increases the fuel consumption by 20% and you can roll down your windows when the weather outside is fine. Don’t have stuff that you don’t need in the car. Things that add weight to the car and are not of any use to you should be taken off the car as weight does affect fuel consumption. Do regular maintenance of your car and change the air filter and fuel filters promptly when needed to and save on fuel.
Using High Octane Gas
People have a misconception that using premium fuel can increase the gas mileage of your car. If your car does not require high octane fuel, then you can opt for lower octane fuel and it will not make a difference to your car’s fuel consumption. On the contrary you will save hundreds of dollars by switching over to low octane fuels as premium fuels are far more expensive than regular fuels. Check the owner’s manual to find out the lowest octane level fuel that is required for your car and stick to that.
Most car manufacturers and auto makers have tried to offset the economic downturn by getting their dealerships to enhance and focus on quality service and customer satisfaction. This has played a major role in boosting sales with the economy becoming back to normal as the dealerships have developed a name for themselves in the field of quality. As a result, more and more customers prefer visiting the dealerships boasting of the best quality in order to buy vehicles. Lexus and GMC have topped these rankings and have witnessed huge growth in sales due to their excellent customer services.
Honda Recalls About 200000 Of Its Vehicles For Brake Malfunctions
Honda has recalled about 200000 of its Acuras and Hondas for the fear of a possible malfunction in its braking systems which are said to have been caused by the problems in the electronic stability controls. About 100000 Honda Pilots, 21000 Acura RL sedan and 60000 Acura MDX SUV’s have been recalled, all of which are said to be from the 2005 – 2006 era. This problem has majorly been caused by the Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) systems. This system is a computer controlled braking system which applies brakes to all four wheels of the vehicle when a loss of traction is detected. Due to the malfunctions, these brakes are being applied by the vehicles without any inputs from drivers.
Chevrolet Celebrates Its 60th Birthday
The first week of March 2013 saw the iconic automaker Chevrolet celebrate its 60th birthday. This gala bash was held on 1st and 2nd March at the Petersen Automotive Museum which is located in Los Angeles. The event also witnessed the unveiling of about 20 prototypes of the next generation vehicles being designed by Chevrolet which included the all new 2014 Corvette. The Corvette has made a name for itself in America as one of the most iconic cars of the country in the sports vehicle category. The first Corvette was released by the company way back in the year 1953 and by 1957 the company had completely focused itself on creating performance oriented vehicles. As a result, 4 speed transmission, tauter suspensions and heavy duty brakes were introduced in the 1957 models.
Why does the Formula One engineer apply virtual reality
Formula One engineers are now relying upon the concept of virtual reality in order to fine-tune their cars. The latest technological innovations have enabled us to simulate any kind of race conditions – without undertaking the event for real. The engineers use simulated virtual cars in order to find out optimal settings that will enable them to have an advantage over the competition. Simulated virtual cars have numerous advantages in comparison with the conventional automobiles. Some of them include
Virtual cars will enable us to overcome the real-world restrictions
Deploying some of the latest technologies to give realistic experiences to the test drivers
It is important to note that the engineers are working hard in order to obtain predefined simulated environments. Test drivers who are already spending their time testing these simulated cars are holding on to the opinion that the enriched graphic settings help in offering a realistic adventure.
Overcoming the real-world limitations
Throughout the years, engineers who deal with the fine-tuning of cars have experienced various kinds of limitations. Ever since the inception of computers, engineers have been using the in a variety of ways so that their teams can win the races. Almost all the sports cars of this generation feature computer-controlled technologies. As mentioned earlier, the underlying technology is ultra-realistic in nature. For the sake of illustration, the test drivers will always be in radio contact with the engineers. This will enable them to provide valuable feedback to the concerned personnel without any additional issues. Please be in mind that the same activities also happened when the engineers tested their technologies with real cars too.
Is simulating a virtual environment easy
Simulating a virtual environment is not an easy task and the software developers will have to take into account many aspects. These software engineers will have to work alongside with the team personnel so that they can bring about the desired results easily. In the same way, simulating a race is indeed a serious business according to the Formula One team engineers. Ironically, many people tend to downplay the same activity because of the extensive proliferation of various kinds of video games among this generation.
Differences in between the real world as well as the virtual world
There are marked differences in between a racing game and a simulated fine-tuning session that will enable the team engineers to get deep insight about the operational activities that are taking place within their cars. Being able to replicate exactly what you will be able to do on the race track – this activity is time consuming according to the software developers who come up with various kinds of simulated cars. According to sources close to the team, there are diversified kinds of sims. Some of them have only limited motion capabilities while the others can have lots of motion. The engineers also agree with the fact that it is extremely tough to replicate what they have learned through the application of simulated environments into the cars in the real world. Interestingly, the team engineers use the term ‘clean representation’ to outline their experiences while working with various kinds of simulated automobiles.
Ford Set To Increase The Number Of Jobs At Its Ohio Plant By 450
The Ford 2 liter Ecoboost engine is all set to be built and developed at the Brook Part plant in Ohio. As a result, the world famous company plans to add 450 jobs to its Ohio plant to help in the smooth production of these engines. Further, the Ohio plant is also set to receive a $200 million funding boost to help it cope up with the engine demands and manufacturing processes. At present, this engine is only being made in Spain. This plant will transfer the entire manufacture of the 2 liter Ecoboost to Cleveland and will continue to make smaller engines for the European markets. One of the main reasons for this shift is that Ford has managed to sell about 530000 Ecoboost engines in the United States from about 2010 to 2012 and plans to sell 500000 engines in the year 2013 itself. The popularity of the 2 liter engine has been such that it is soon supposed to give the 3.5 liter V6 engine a run for its money as the most popular Ford engine to be sold in the U.S.
Ford recently added about 700 dealerships to its existing list of dealers who have been authorized to sell the all electric car by Ford called Focus Electric. However, despite this massive increase in dealerships, the company expects lukewarm sales for the vehicle. The latest estimates have put the sales of the electric vehicle at about just 5% of the total sales of its hybrid and electric vehicles in the year to come. Moreover, almost 90% of the electric vehicle sales have come from the golden state of California. One of the main reasons for the lukewarm response has been its inferior quality when compared to Nissan’s Leaf. Nissan sold about 7716 of its leaf models while Ford managed to sell only 683 of its electric version. Another reason is that the Leaf is available for as little as $18800 while the Ford Focus would cause one to spend about $29200. As a result, it has mostly been received by people looking for a trendier vehicle irrespective of its cost.
Ford Now Features 6 Electric Vehicles In Its Portfolio
With the inclusion of the Focus Electric, the company now boasts of 6 electric vehicles in its product range. The other popular models are the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, C Max and Fusion hybrid, the Transit Connect EV and the C Max and Fusion Energy plug in hybrid.
Ford is coming up with its new van, the Tourneo courier minivan at the Geneva Auto Show which is supposed to take place in March. The van boasts of modern luxury, a much improved fuel economy and reduced emissions as well. The engines of the all new Tourneo have been tweaked as well to make it compliant to the Stage V European emission standards. It is supposed to hit the market in 8 seater as well as 9 seater models. It is also planning to introduce its all new Ecosport compact SUV which has been made for the European markets in the Geneva show. The Ecosport will use a 1.0 liter Ecoboost engine and will be available in both automatic and manual transmissions.

According to reports published in the Ferrari magazine earlier, all the tit-bits learned in Formula One by Scuderia are packed inside the yet-to-be-revealed successor of Enzo. Now, the latest information on Ferrari’s website shows just how much the disclosure is true.
One thing that is not sure whether there have been changes made in the length or width of the supercar, but Ferrari says the target for the new “beasts” was “a reduction in height and wheelbase to match those of the 458 Italia.”
Ferrari F1 designer Rory Byrne has devoted three long years to chassis’ development. It is learned that the chassis in the upcoming supercar will be laid up by hand as each of the units have been composed of different carbon fiber types as well as cured in autoclave F1 monocoque-style. This may be one of the main reasons of difference in weight compared to the Enzo. Also, information on the website reveals the batteries and fuel tank will be behind the driver’s seat as it is found in a F1 car. The Formula 1 Safety.
The cabin of this supercar will be a personalized one. It will be just like the way the driver wants. This type of cockpit is rare in road cars where the seat is measured for driver’s comfort and then sets in a fixed position in the cabin. Apart from this, the pedal box as well as the steering wheel can also be customized to accommodate the driver. It is also learned that the feet of occupant will be at the same level as its driving position. The angle of seatback will surely be offering an extraordinary racy feeling to the driver.
The supercar is to be equipped with HY-KERS and a double-clutch transmission. It will be an evolution of 740-horsepower, 6.3-litre V12 presently seen in F12 Berlinetta.
As per Ferrari, the powertrain of it will make the car quicker from 0-to-120 miles per hour. It will reduce the emissions by 40 percent and will also improve other features like the brake force distribution and torque vectoring.
