Nissan GT-R 2013

Posted: 30 Oct 2011 06:06 AM PDT

The Japanese supercar Nissan GT-R is currently the holder of one of his fastest laps of the Nurburgring circuit in Germany on the category, well-established point of reference with regard to the performance of the car. According to rumors, however, the model of the 2013 GT-R, which will be officially presented on November 7, should be able to tear this result (7 minutes and 24 seconds and 22 cemtesimi) even lowering the record (at least) 7-8 second. This would mean stopping the clock at 7:16, faster than the Porsche 911 GT2 RS.

According to some sources, in particular Pistonheads, the improvement could be as high as 10 seconds, putting the Nissan GT-R on the same level of the other Japanese supercar, the Lexus LFA Nurburgring Package, with a time of around 7 minutes and 14 seconds.

From what we learned the 2013 version of the sports car should have 550 hp (523 against the current MODEL). Despite the increased power and performance so much improved, however, the car should be able to offer reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions compared to version 2012. Powerful, fast, efficient and clean: it seems a combination of all respect.

According to the source cited the new Nissan GT-R should be able to face any curve between 5 and 8 km / h faster than the current model, reaching a top speed in the final straight of 296 km / h. The presentation is scheduled for November 7, but at this point we are curious to see the track on the Ring!

Broken Mirror, No More

Posted: 28 Oct 2011 04:00 PM PDT

What's good riders? Remember the problem I had on my 2003 Kawasaki Z1000 involving the left mirror being annoyingly loose? The other day, I was checking to see if it could be tightened by taking the base of the mirror's tubular nut, and tightening the smaller nut inside.

Well initially the point was to reveal and release this nut and put on a thread locking compound in order to assure its security, but what ended up happening was something completely different and disappointing.

In works of tightening the smaller nut, combined with the thread locking compound, I ended up over tightening the much worn screw tip of the mirror and twisted it off, OOPS! Silly me, I forgot the number one rule when tightening anything, "once tight, it's enough."

It also didn't help that I had some verbal encouragement from a guy (Paul) who failed to realize that I'm the type of person that doesn't know her own strength. But he didn't fail to point out that I broke my mirror by saying "look, you broke your mirror." Thanks for the commentary as always Paul!

Well now instead of having an annoyingly loose mirror, I now have a mirror in two pieces. It was time for a quick fix. To pocket the mirror was one idea, but there is just something about a bike with missing limbs that bugs me. So I decided to reattach the mirror by using electrical tape until I got home to figure out a more solid temporary solution.

The best idea I had was to use a bonding and hardening solution. This will be satisfactory until I'm able to replace the mirror. So I went to the hardware store and bought a Plastic Steel Epoxy bonding solution and some plumbers tape to add reassurance and security. This temporary solution was very promising, but there is always room for failure.

I filled the tubular nut shaft up with the mixture and pretty much stuck the broken end of the mirror in; making sure to add more mixture around it. After that I taped it up with the plumbers tape making sure to create a tight, shell like cocoon to add extra support. After the 24 hour waiting period I took a test run around the area to make sure it was at least stable with city riding, and it turns out to be a piece of cake. And it handles the freeway the same way with a small exception of having a little give, but this all could mean I did not apply enough mixture in and around the shaft. Regardless, I rate this a successful rig and am satisfied for now.

I thought about replacing both the mirrors and getting a cool new set. This still sounds like a good idea because the last owner of the bike already had missed match pieces to the set of mirrors on the bike. But I can always get an original replacement of the left view mirror, and will be equally happy. Now I can at least say that I have options. Alrighty, this is Studdly signing off.

Chrysler 300C Touring

Posted: 26 Oct 2011 05:25 AM PDT

The U.S. automaker Chrysler has officially announced that it will not be produced the next generation of 300C Touring, the station wagon segment and the company that is going to be retired: an item is safe to say with certainty that we will not see another wagon Chrysler similar in price, that is the CEO of the brand, Saad Chehab, Chief Executive Officer also carmaker Lancia (which could be imported into Europe, here, among us, the likely station wagon version of the Chrysler 300C, transforming it into the topic as has already happened for the sedan). In an interview with the influential British magazine Autocar, the manager explained that “sales in the U.S., for estates, are too slow to justify the development costs”, ie that (roughly) sales in the U.S. of this type of wagon is too slow (too low) to justify the development costs. In other words, there are not so abundant requests for Chrysler 300C Touring version in the catchment area in North America to ensure success and therefore the coverage of investment required to commercialize this wagon.

To us it may matter very little, as the U.S. carmaker Chrysler would not have imported it here in Europe, the wagon version of the Chrysler 300C (brand has completely canceled its price in the Old Continent and has ceased to export beyond Atlantic Ocean their cars, preferring – at the suggestion of Sergio Marchionne – Lance rebrand all vehicles traveling in North America, Chrysler logo). However, we stress that the station wagon version of the Lancia Thema would undoubtedly crop success in Europe and therefore might have contributed to some extent, economic coverage of the investments necessary to put the world’s Chrysler 300C Touring.

Mazda Takeri Concept

Posted: 26 Oct 2011 05:13 AM PDT

Just a little over a month since its debut (it will be officially unveiled for the first time during the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, scheduled between December 3 and 11 the next day in the country of the Rising Sun), the Japanese automaker Mazda showed virtually the new Taker Concept, a mid-sized sedan that anticipates the new generation Mazda 6, the D-segment model that seems to be permanently replaced during the next year. The new Mazda Taker Concept is the third car to show us the brand new design language of the East, that the same house calls describes as KODO and soul in motion.

I like, I really like this new takers, especially for the harmony of forms, but also for the courage with which he tries to remedy the lack of stylistic identity in Mazda price (you can not deny that there is a family feeling that can to merge the carmaker’s models and make them instantly recognizable, instantly identifiable. Taker The new Mazda is composed of fluid forms and signs very soft, expressive lines and rounded volumes, very sweet. At the same time, however, the cutting of the central grille, the headlights, roof and interior of the glass surface make it very aggressive, very direct, very energetic, very aggressive and muscular. The new Mazda 6, if you really inherit all properties, could be frightening to German the industry.

The new Mazda concept taker, of which we know only a few details, was developed using the family called SkyActiv component parts, that is possible using the most efficient technologies (engines, transmissions, floor, chassis, electronics and so on). It is not known, however, what lies beneath this dress soft and captivating.

The new Mazda taker is likely to be exposed in Europe during the Geneva Motor Show 2012, while it seems that the new generation Mazda 6 will be presented at the Paris Motor Show 2012, during the autumn.
