  1. HI, I'm trying to demonstrate the performance increase that can be obtained by using nitinol vibration dampers. Our research group believes that by using nitinol as a vibration damper, vibrations can be reduced or eliminated from the wheels, axle components, engine, transmission, and drive shaft. For this reason, we're looking for highly competitive drivers who are interested in partaking in a research project to see how much performance can be gained by using nitinol in these applications. If you're interested, please let me know so I can send you more information. We have conducted numerous research projects with customers around the globe, eliminating vibrations from all sorts of products. The huge advantage that nitinol has over other vibration dampers is that it is structurally as strong as titanium. This allows us to put it into high strength applications and keep everything from moving around. For an explanation of what nitinol is: www.KelloggsResearchLabs.com Joe
  2. Hi everyone today I'm going to talk about the 5 most expensive cars in the world. I used a YouTube channel and a few other websites to find out more about this. 1.1963 Ferrari 250 GTO 1964 Won the 250 GTO Tour de France Automobile Award - Ferrari's ninth consecutive year winning the competition. Only 36 of these cars were manufactured between 1962 and 1963; At an incredible $ 70,000,000, it was the world's most expensive Ferrari special and won not only at the Tour de France but also at Le Mans. At a top speed of 174 mph and a top speed of 0-100 mph (0-60 mph) in 6.1 seconds, its stats certainly do not please current car enthusiasts alone. However, in the ’60s it was the fastest in the world - now decades later it remains the most expensive car in the world with a long shot. 2. Bugatti La Voiture Noire: $ 18,700,000 In 2019, Bugatti made a brilliant brand decision when it unveiled its latest supercar. Instead of a fancy introduction and name, the French producer chose a restrained, minimalist and instantaneous title: La Voyager Noir. The black car. No other details are required. With more details, this beautiful vehicle is no surprise: it features a hand-carved carbon fiber shell, a 1500-horsepower quad-turbo W16 8.10L engine, and acceleration. 0-100kph (0-60mph) in 2.4 seconds. It has a top speed of 420 kph (260 mph) and its overall performance is precisely designed by the world's most famous automaker to build the world's most powerful car for decades. 3. Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta Sonda was the first car to come out of the Pagani Automobile Auto House. Years ago, Huawei should have stopped production to its advantage. Instead, Pagani has released various special editions of the Sonda. This was named the Sonda HP Barchetta - Barchetta - because, to Horatio Pagani, it was similar: in Italian, ‘small boat’. Its frame is made entirely of carbon fiber and zip for an ultralight body, a fast feel; It is blue in color, has minimal wind coverage, and is about 21 inches (0.5 m) at its highest point. Unfortunately, the most expensive car you can not buy is the Pagani Sonda HP Barchetta. Only three vehicles have been produced so far with this unique, special version of the Sonda. When last sold, one of these vehicles went for $ 17.6 million. Its acceleration is 0-60mph or 0-100kph in 3.4 seconds. The Sonda HP Barchetta can reach top speeds of 355 km / h or 220 miles per hour. 4. Bugatti Centodieci Bugatti's 2021 Centodic will be even more unique: only 10 of these luxury hypercars will be sold. (Despite the high price, everyone has already found a satisfying buyer.) Bugatti, already a well-known brand for its unique body work and luxury amenities, has tried to give Centodic everything it can remember. With the 1577-hp quad-turbo W-16, it may not be the fastest Bugatti currently on the road; But it is the fastest. Along with this car, Bugatti pays homage to the EB110 (or ‘CentoDC’), a supercar made in the early 90s. The car did not have time to run as expected. This car will help with that, saving performance and luxury. The Bugatti has a top speed of 0-62 mph (or 236 km / h or 379 km / h - 2.4 seconds / second - which is clearly less than the Chiron, but this Hypercar has its modern aesthetic. 5. Bugatti Divo Bugatti's reputation for luxury, luxury supercars continues with the next two cars in our rankings - starting with the 2021 Divo. The Bugatti Chiron is so successful that it has a few features similar to the Divo car that closely follows it. However, the Divo has a more exotic look and is more unique. Only 40 Divos are manufactured and sold. Everyone has already spoken. Its upgrades include better suspension, a lighter frame for higher speeds, and newer fins. Inside is an 8.0L W-16 engine with four Divo turbochargers. As a result, the Divo has 1500 horsepower and can reach speeds of 0-100 miles per hour (0-62 miles per hour) in 2.4 seconds. Its high speed? 380km / h (or 236mph). In order to save as much weight as possible, Bugatti kept the comfortable luggage and information inside to a minimum. However, the steering wheel is made of soft forged suede and the blue and black aesthetics on the outside are also visible on the inside.

  4. Do you think that the car community/hooning culture is over represented in accident statistics? Why? What would you say in defense? What is more prevalent and why do you think we hear about it less? Im writing a research paper and would really appreciate some input!
  5. Hi all I just installed a Progress sway bar on my Acura RSX. I also upgrade my end links to hotchkis endlinks,. I only have so much time and money but I am curious as to what would be the next best handling performance upgrades I should pursue in preparing my car for Autocross this July. Here are possibilities: Tien Coilovers, upgraded Control arms 18 inch wheels with a good summer tire strut brace Please help me see what the highest priority is to the least Thanks and if there is somtething that I missed. Thanks, -Hotwheels
  6. I am working on custom vehicle physics wrapper for games. As a test subject I've taken Koenigsegg CCX. I am comparing my wrapper's results to real-life ones. I've run at 2 problems. One of them is suspension forces and second one is height of CG. I am using Bullet physics for my game, but I have created custom gravity setup to simulate downforce and weight transfer. For suspension I use basic PID(proportional-integral-derative) controller. So my questions are: What is spring rate and damper strength of stock suspension of Koenigsegg CCX? Best would be answer in kN. How high is CCX's centre of gravity from it's wheelbase? Best would be answer in cm or m. Thank you for your advices!

  9. 2015 Dream Builders Car Show- The 2015 Dream Builders Car Show will be held August 9th, 2015 at the Evergreen Speedway in Monroe Washington, with all proceeds going to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Snohomish County! Last year was our first annual show, and we had 240 cars, 2500 people in attendance throughout the day, and raised $10,386 for BBBS!! In our first year!!!! While you process that, let me tell you about our plans for the 2015 Dream Builders Car Show. Our goal this year is to raise $20,000 for BBBS, doubling last year’s fundraising efforts. This year we will be giving out 100 awards with classes for any and every type of vehicle, including multiple classes for various Motorcycles, Cars Pre 1930’s through 2015, Exotics, Muscle, Grocery Getters, Rat Rods, Off Road, Semi Trucks, and Tractors…just to name a few. When we say we have a class for everything, we mean it! So you’re at the show, you’ve seen all of the cars, and you’re feet are tired. Time to go? NOPE!! Take a seat in the grandstands and watch cars rip down the 1/8th mile drag strip! If you’re 21 years or older, you can head to the Speedway Beer Garden for an Ice cold brew, with only a fence separating you and your friends from the starting line! Ears pounding from the roaring motors? Soothe your soul with the sweet sound of classic rock and roll performed by a live band, and played by our DJ! By now your feet are probably ready to get back out there and check out our Sponsors and Vendors on Vendors Row, showcasing area businesses and entrepreneurs who have generously opened their hearts and wallets in support of our cause. Be sure to purchase raffle tickets from our Prize Raffle and 50/50 Raffle! And just before we hand out the awards, make your way up to the grandstands to watch Motorcycles and Cars battle it out in our Loudest Engine contest, followed up by our tire shredding Burnout Contest! Not sold yet? Let me tell you about the driving force behind why this show will one day be one of the largest, most anticipated summer events in the Pacific Northwest. For the majority of my life, my father has been absent. When I was 8 years old, my mom enrolled me in Big Brothers Big Sisters, a non-profit organization that matches at risk youth with responsible adult mentors, forming in most cases, life long relationships that will help shape these children into adults that will one day plan charity car shows to raise money for charity…Ok maybe not all of them, but the impact these adult volunteers have on these kids cannot be quantified in words. At the age of 10, I was matched with Rich, my “Big Brother”. For the last 21 years, Rich has been more than just a “Big Brother”. While most kids look to dad for fatherly advice and guidance, I looked to Rich. Without BBBS and the match they created, I would not be the man I am today. A man who will forever be indebted to BBBS, and will do whatever it takes to raise funds for this organization, so other kids like me have the same opportunity in life. Hope to see you all there!!!

  10. This is for around 86 to 89 style of cars. I've always liked the mustang gt body style but I love the high end 350's. What do you think?
  11. Sky Tyne and Wear has been given a unique insight into the boy racer scene across Tyne and Wear. The late night cruising culture of the boy racers has come under fire from people including those that think they make to much noise, to the police, who keep a close eye on car meets and the region's roads. But the drivers defended themselves, saying there was more to their passion than disturbing the peace with a souped up hatchback.

  12. I am looking on some advice on ways to get myself into karting. Basically, I have only ever been out in rental karts but absolutely love the experience. Me and my 2 brothers always seem to end up at the front of the few 'Pay £40/£50 grand prix format' that we occasionally pay for at our local tracks. We normally turn up and join in races involving between 15-20 people. Then again, there may be nothing in this as they may all be doing it for fun but it feels good This led to me taking part in the Red Bull Kart Fight, a few months ago now, and I managed to get through to the Final Heat of the Regional Finals. I was pushed off the track in the final heat but I guess that's down to my inexperience. Anyway, I love the idea of getting onto the track so any help/advice would be much appreciated!! Cheers!!
  13. This isn't a final version; some defects in statistics are possible to be found All Information about "Moscow Unlim 500+" race event . bet who won!
