Fastest Street Legal Car

This ride is seriously blowing me away. It was a 9.3l v8 Engine which produce a 2200BHP. I just can't imagine that this car can do 0-60 mph in just 1 SECOND!! Besides that, this car can actually do a Quarter mile in 7.8 Second. Impressive huh.

Increased Power without Spending Much Part 1 : Cleaning the Air Filter

You'd never guess how quickly an air filter get dirty to the point where they start costing you power, and often it's the last place people would look into when maintaining the cars. The most important thing when maintaining the car is to check every single section which is really important although sometimes people would think it is not important.

As a general rule of thumb, the move 'hi-flow' into your inlet, the faster it will get dirty; and the more often it will need cleaning. Every 5000 km as a minimum is worth the effort. If you don't have at least an aftermarket panel filter then invest Rm100 in one. Just a suggestion from me.

Safe Stop

It's a fact that there is no point in having massive brakes and pads if you haven't upgraded the brake hoses. As rubber hoses deteriorate and crack over time, they also suffer enormous stress every time you stomp on the brakes.

These hoses are the only thing that connect your brakes to the 'Whoa Pedal' in the cabin, so replace them with the latest ADR Compliant braided ones for peace of mind as well as increased stopping power.

D1GP Best Twin Drift Tandem Sudden Death Match

never ending for both the Drifters but I can say it's a very nice chase and they are really skilled when it comes to a corner by sticking to their opponent closely. They have to make sudden attack for 2 rounds to have a winner. You can see the difference between a Local Drifters and Japanese Drifters. They are just going mad when it comes to driving. But they are hidden talented ones that we haven't discover that hides themselves and keep themselves low profile. Hope to see more Automotive Enthusiasm in different category.

Just One Fine Day

It's just a one fine day where I drove to Sunway Damansara for some drop off and headed my journey to Kota damansara for some session with friends with my SLK. After the session where I head back to my place where I need to somehow passing by the road where it used to be a 2 way road but now it has changed to One way street. Me and My SLK meet 2 ferraris where the side of mine is in dark blue and the one behind of it is in Red. I guess both of them are gathering up huh. The SLK I meant is not the SLK from merc benz but Small little Kelisa though. Sorry about the twist yeah.. Just to spice up the day

Latest EV powertrain

Zytek Automotive, a UK-based company, is developing an all-new electric vehicle powertrain, and the company says that the third-generation design - which is built from a clean slate - will significantly simplify the introduction of next-generation electric vehicles, be it niche models or high-volume global vehicles.

The 25kW Zytek EV powertrain.

The modular package, available in sizes from 25kW, is extremely compact, and in air-cooled configuration, is up to 45% lighter than today’s production EV powertrains, while the water-cooled version, suitable for demanding drive cycles, is still up to 30% lighter.

Features in the powertrain include the integration of the charger within the inverter, reducing the number of separate enclosures and connectors required in the vehicle, and a new, high-efficiency permanent magnet synchronous motor offering a maximum speed of 14,000rpm, providing oodles of generated torque while keeping the machine's size small and weight low.

A closer view of the motor plus transmission.

A new transmission, designed specifically for use with the new powertrain, is being developed by transmission specialist Vocis, and offers compactness (just 138cm wide) and lightness (10kg) among its key features.

The compact dimensions of the new drivetrain will make mechanical integration with a vehicle much simpler. The main connections required are high voltage (to the traction battery) and low voltage (for electrical interface with the vehicle). The air cooling option adds to the weight reduction and reduces complexity by eliminating the entire water cooling system.

VW launches new Polo GTI

 Volkswagen has launched the GTI variant for its new Polo hatch; the little rocket has 178bhp, like its predecessor, though this is achieved with the use of a turbocharged and supercharged 1.4l TSI block compared to the 1.8l turbo unit on the previous one.

Effectively, this amounts to the same level of performance and fun, with the 1,194kg vehicle able to do the 0-100kmh sprint in 6.9secs and get to a top speed of 229kmh, but with a 25% improvement in fuel efficiency .

The car is equipped with a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox (DSG) as standard; an electronic transverse differential lock (XDS) reduces the tendency to understeer and improves handling aspects. Like all versions of the model series, the Polo GTI also comes equipped with ESP, including Hill Climb Assist.

Safety equipment includes an airbag network that features combined head-thorax side airbags, belt tensioners, belt tension limiters plus belt warning, front head restraints designed to avoid whiplash trauma as well as Isofix points on the rear bench seat.

As for convenience, items on the kit list include electro-hydraulic power steering, central locking, bootspace lighting and tie-down eyes, driver seat height adjustment and green-tinted insulated glass.

The Polo GTI is the first Polo to come with bi-xenon headlights with cornering lights, LED daytime running lights and corner marker lights, as well as a panoramic tilt/slide sunroof. GTI-specific features include a sport seat system and 17-inch Denver alloy wheels.
