    Brake Mounting : The correct way

    So what you are saying is it doesn't matter how you mount it except it being securely mounted? Doesn't the brake torque figure somewhere in this? The caliper must be at least at the top half to get the maximum torque (the radial distance being from the ground for same brake force) Any solid...

    I had a nagging doubt for quite some time, the answer to which still eludes me. The brake caliper mounting on the front and rear wheels, is it mounted in some fixed position?

    Subaru BRZ - 147mph

    This is one good car. Just reading an article about it today. The BRZ and the Toyota GT86 are near identical twins, borne out of co-operation between Toyota and Subaru's parent company, FHI. Toyota took care of product planning and exterior/interior design, Subaru handled the detailed...

    Do tread patterns really matter

    As a car moves, the roughness of the road surface causes the tyres to vibrate, producing sound waves. This results in a noise typically described as a roar or a rumble. A separate phenomenon involves air being trapped by the advancing tyre. When the air is forced out of the way it causes a noisy...

    Do tread patterns really matter

    Seriously? Sorry Mate firstly i wanted to correct you, there's no such thing as a "hydrofoil effect". What you wanted to say was probably aquaplaning or hydoplaning. Also its not only for guiding water away to prevent but also for noise reduction when the car moves. Michelin Primacy LC is an...

    McLaren F1 vs Bugatti Veyron

    Yep, thats an old one but lets not forget that the Mclaren was built with dynamics in mind, so it will always be faster on the start and good on the corners, the bugatti wins it because its all filled with technology and computers, id choose the mclaren anyday.

    McLaren F1 vs Bugatti Veyron

    Well id take the F1 cause it has the weight advantage which means it accelerates faster the the bulky Veyron, but over the 1 mile stretch its the veyron that's going to win because of the sheer momentum it carries due to its weight.

    Gallardo or R8

    No arguments, The R8 wins. It does what the Gallardo does and that too at a cheaper rate. Honestly speaking it looks much much more sexier that the lambo:love:

    What is a supercar

    Straight and simple, cars that cost you a fortune to buy and then run i.e. expensive to buy, amusingly pathetic mileage, loads of grunge (noise for some) and low enough in height;);) Coming to the categorization, like turbonutter69 said, these cars of three types- the sportscars like the...

    Self driving cars - the future

    Well, you can drive pretty well enough without ABS, if you're not talking of on the limit driving. And that's where the emphasis lies, how you encroach the limits, drive well, and safe and you'll do just fine without those aids. But honestly, they're a part of our life and we do depend on it...

    How to make the roads safer

    I think women are better drivers than men. Accidents on roads are primarily due to the rash driving by men, who seek adrenaline whenever the foot meets the pedal. In short educating people about the correct driving techniques, the rules to follow will be "right of way":blink1:

    Check these wheels . . .

    these tyres have been doing rounds since 2005. They are called the Michelin Tweels (a combination of Tyre and Wheels). The Tweel is a combined single-piece tyre and wheel combination, hence the name, though it actually begins as an assembly of four pieces bonded together: the hub, a...
