About Yamaha Byson Features

Let’s uncover the features Yamaha Byson, anything new?

First, about design. Virtually Byson affairs this one is unrivaled. Muscular body looks from the width of a typical tank design such as touring motor sport. Practically, this tank can be overhauled the need for replacement if bikers want a touch of paint modification.

Handlebar shape is also different than the factory output of motor sport in general. Yamaha uses a longer handlebar. Most models such as the handlebar is the creation of bikers on a ride-style modification touring. The effect would be more manly appearance, and handling in everyday use is also more comfortable. However, the use of wide handlebars may even bring negative impact when the biker crowd was forced to swerve in the road.

Moved slightly towards the front, the shape of the face comes through the headlamp Byson similar asymmetrical V-ixion latest generation. Not round, but also does not square. Quite fit with the character of urban motor sport. Uniquely, the location of the license plate on the top of the headlamp is not at the bottom as in general, motorcycle in Indonesia.

Still on the front, Yamaha has also used a diameter of 41 mm telescopic fork that is claimed to be the largest in its class. Parts of the legs are also quite solid with the placement of the tire size 100/80-R17 tubeless types.

Information about motor also displayed clearly on the indicator panel LCD digital models. Speedometer, tachometer, fuel meter, engine indicators, and the gear indicator and the indicator lamp clearly displayed both day and night.

Turn again to the middle of the motor; Yamaha designed the seat with the model of stacking between the riders with a passenger. When the driver's seat is comfortable enough to accommodate the buttocks, but when trying sat so passengers, then felt a little sick.

Just below the tank, Byson allowed to appear "naked" for the sake of showing the engine 153 cc 4-stroke water-cooled SOHC hers. Yamaha also claims Byson machine equipped with a special spark plug cooling system parts Yamaha mixing. The goal remains the spark plug in order to work optimally, and this technology does not exist in other motors.

The majority of V-ixion also adopted machinery sector though still not using fuel injection mechanism. With this type of wet clutch 5-speed, reliable gear changes also took place between smooth and responsive urban characters in motor sport.

Moving into the stern, quite unique stop lamp made different from the many outstanding motor sport in Indonesia. Location of brake light is located to the spakbor not embedded in the back of the body, or rather close to the rear number plate. His character is futuristic, but for those who are unfamiliar with this view will be considered a bit odd.

However when viewing the rear tire, probably all agree Byson go back one step above any other motor sport. Not excessive, considering the Yamaha dare cram a round rubber type size 120/80-R17 tubeless rims with a width of 3.5.

This section should be the pride of Byson than motor sport competitors. For bikers though no longer need to up-grade the rear tires in order to appear more manly and able to tread the asphalt more qualified. However, Yamaha is still satisfied with the use of brake type drum to the rear tire. According to Yamaha motor sport 70 percent of consumers use the front brake than the rear brake, so it does not seem too significant to use the rear brake discs.

Great body, muscular legs, and the 153 cc engine, being a Yamaha Byson’s capital to try to maintain a sports motorcycle segment manufacturer's tuning fork symbol.

Koenigsegg Challenge Bugatti Veyron

Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport currently holds Car World speed record. Not to be outdone, the Koenigsegg supercar Agera secretly going after the record-breaking.

Not too faded charm, when the VW test track Ehra-Lessian finally delivers Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport to the title of the Guinness Book of Records. That's because Turbocharger engine 1200 hp maximum power and torque of 1500 Nm ante managed to push the car up at a speed of 431 km per hour.

Knowing the note, Christian Von Koenigsegg says ready to provide support to help realize the speed record-breaking car in the world.

His first step, Koenigsegg have to do the enumeration data speed world record at the Bugatti, to be applied in the most perfect machine Koenigsegg held today, Agera. Koenigsegg Agera is their latest supercar, which was introduced this year when the mat Geneva Motor Show, which has a body weight of 1290 kg.

Koenigsegg Agera was armed only with a capacity of 4.7 liter V8 engine, capable of producing power to reach 898 hp and 1100 Nm of torque ante. Maximum speed reached 390 km per hour are also still far from the Bugatti Veyron, but just a little touch of modification, remain optimistic Koenigsegg can solve the world speed record. And if Bugatti does not take the threat from Koenigsegg seriously, a US-based supercar Shelby also was treating myself to break the record at the same rate.

Buggati record that makes a scene that did make another supercar manufacturers envy. Koenigsegg addition, the SSC Ultimate Aero was trying to regain his crown captured Bugatti.

Inter Car Communication Technology Will Be Trends

TECHNOLOGY inter car communications will become a trend in an effort to improve vehicle safety from potential conflicts. But not just the technology, its use also requires government approval for the related use of the wave.

Currently many manufacturers to develop even introduce their inter car communication features. Just mentions Ford, Nissan, Volkswagen, BMW and Volvo, including General Motors will introduce the second generation of the same technology.

In cooperation with the Car 2 Car Communication Consortium (C2C-CC), GM is demonstrating for the first time inter car communication system or "vehicle to-X". This tool works in accordance with the type of car used.

The system works to give warning to the driver if there is a potential collision with another car. At a certain distance, both cars will share information about the position and velocity through the sensor. This system also can provide information to the driver if there was another car stopped at a position that is not visible, like corners or bend and can lead to conflict.

This technology is equipped with a microprocessor, GPS receivers, and wireless LAN modules. With these tools, the car can communicate within a radius of less than 100 meters distance. The result of communication or warning, delivered through voice or display on the dashboard.

Ford recently introduced a technology called Smart Technology intersection. This system also utilizes GPS and wireless communication to connect with traffic lights and road markings. Nissan and Volvo also announced the use of the same technology in the near future.

If this system has been realized in the car, it is not impossible if done in the future development. So the driver no longer needs to manually direct the car to a goal to be achieved. Live setup, the car will drive itself automatically.

Finally, The Chevrolet Orlando Shows

Two weeks ago, the figure of the latest products caught Chevrolet Orlando already had a camera in China. Now, the party would ensure that General Motors launched a multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) is offering seven-passenger car at an international exhibition in Paris, the end of September 2011. Orlando final shape virtually identical to the shoot spy captured the local media in the Country of the Bamboo Curtain.

If you look at the exterior design of Orlando, carrying the same DNA with the previous Chevrolet products, such as Captiva, Cruze, and Spark, which was launched earlier. GM-party state, this unit is developed from the family car concept that combines seven-seat practicality, interior flexibility, and crossover design.

Orlando produced using Cruze sedan platform. Manufacturers will offer three engine choices, each with a capacity of 1.8 liters of gasoline and two 2.0-liter diesel types. Differences in power output, i.e. 141 dk, dk 131, and 163 dk.

Coupe vs Sedan - What's the difference?

What is the difference between the coupe and sedan? For most people the answer is simple: 4-door sedan and coupe 2. After all this, like all car manufacturers have been identified in recent years. Thus, the answer is so simple? No, not really. Like most things automotive, there is unnecessary confusion has been filed, until recently, because some car manufacturers are trying to differentiate their cars are called 4-door coupe, along with other, seemingly contradictory name.
But the term "4-door coupe," although it may be stupid, in fact, a legitimate claim. is "2-door sedan, no matter how much you otherwise I would not. Thus, to be used in the world, 2-door coupe and 4-door sedan, in which a strange fit these descriptions, and as a means?

What is coupe?
Coupe, usually seen as a closed body, 2-door car, often in the sporting character. Coupe, usually two or four seats in the 2 +2 seating configuration, so that it gives only two seats in the rear (unlike the standard 3) and the place is less than the national average. For your convenience, to sit in the back of type 2 +2 seats, you have a small child or an adult who, as it turned out, no feet.
Technically, coupe, like the hard disk less than 33 cubic meters of rear interior volume is defined. Typically, cars with less than 33 cubic meters of rear interior volume has only two doors, so the usual practice of combining the two doors to the term "coupe". Nevertheless, there are many cars that only two doors, but more than 33 cubic meters in the back. These machines, while the coupe can be called the manufacturer, technically two-door limousines. Examples of 2-door sedan, Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, Mercedes CL-Class, Chevy Monte Carlo, and surprisingly, the Mazda RX-8 (though it is a little different story.)

What is Sedan?
We usually combined with large sedans, 4-door, the roof is closed cozy space, machines can accommodate 4 or 5 good way to see the sedan is a fixed B-pillar between the front and rear windows.

Alternatively, coupe, sedan technically a closed car with a roof to determine the greater or equal to 33 cubic feet of rear interior volume. It makes me wonder if the recent self-determination "4-door coupe, in fact, by definition coupe. This Lamborghini Estoque, Aston Martin Rapide and Porsche Panamera includes embarrassing. I have a problem with understanding for the end of the 4-door coupe. If you have a small internal volume of the back, which is an advantage of four doors? If you have a sports car, which has two seats behind, as well, and get a 2-door coupe with 2 +2 configuration. If you have a family transporter, get a sports sedan.

Okay, so we know the difference between technical coupe and sedan. What now? I still have a taxi 2 door coupe, and a car, 4-door sedan. "There is no need for this confusing technical differences. We should ignore the marketing BS is used. Although the term" 4-door coupe "is technically correct, it is stupid.

For many years, Swarovski crystals appear in almost every fashion stores of the world through various types of products. Ranging from jewelry, clothing, bags, accessories and even penetrated to the vehicle.

However, Bulgaria is now providing another option. The crystals were used as the dividing line the street in Bulgaria Sozopol and Primorsko by the Road Safety Association (RSA) of Bulgaria.

"The reason for using this crystal clear in terms of security, not to make the street look bling-bling," wrote Autoevolution, Wednesday (08/11/2010).

RSA Bulgaria has approved the use of Swarovski crystals for USD30.000. These crystals will be mixed with paint markings will be used as a roadblock to look bright even in conditions of heavy rain or foggy weather.

For some field road that veered sharply, then the RSA Bulgaria using crystals with larger size for better visibility for passing motorists.

When this solution proved to be an effective way to reduce the number of accidents, the Bulgarians could become a new trendsetter in the world's highways.

The Car with 1610 km / hour Speed!

Lovers of speed on land would be very happy to hear this news. Yesterday, a British mechanical team revealed a model car that can drive faster than 1,000 mph or 1610 km / hr.

Replica car is called Bloodhound Supersonic Car (SSC) along the 12.8-meter is the result of study findings for three years.

The model became a star on the Farnborough International Air Show this year. The team had also been announced that Hampson Industries aerospace factory will start making cars in the first quarter of 2011.

"The presence of Hampson Industries, a manufacturing project we have secured half of the car body. This marks a major step in this project, "said project director Richard Noble.

"Hampson Industries is the representative of the prosperity of the skills we have in the UK and underlines the importance of maintaining this expertise." Another agreement to make the front with another company is also soon to see the final point. "Now we're in route to produce this car as a whole," said Mark Chapman, the chief mechanic, told the BBC.

"We hope to bring these vehicles into the streets in the UK in late 2011 or early 2012." Assuming no major problems that arise from the tests on the streets, Bloodhound will be taken to a dry lake known as Hakskeen Pan, in the Northern Cape of South Africa, to begin testing the fastest record in the mainland.

To claim the record, the car should be better than time records obtained Thrust supersonic car earlier in the year 1997. The car was capable of a speed of 763 mph or 1228 km / hr. Bloodhound first test will be conducted in the year 2012.

However, the team believes, Bloodhound superior aerodynamic form, combined with the power of Falcon hybrid rocket and jet engine-EJ200 the Eurofighter Typhoon, will carry the blue and orange car that reached speeds of more than 1000 mph (1610 km / h).

Several engine tests have been done and the results are successful, the machine is fully capable of lifting power with a maximum of 90kN produce thrust without any problems. In total, Bloodhound produce 133 159 bhp. Strength equivalent to 180 Formula One car.

Three people who worked on the Thrust will also be invited in this Bloodhound project. They are Wing Car driver Andy Green, project director Richard Noble and Ron Ayres aerodynamics expert.

The trio are not only designed the Bloodhound as the record-breaking, but also as a project that hopefully will inspire children to want to study the STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Machinery and Mathematics). Bloodhound Education Program was announced at Farnborough. Meanwhile, about 1.5 million high school students currently use the curriculum resource materials based on supersonic car.

A replica of the car was on display in Farnborough Air show weekend ini.Jika actual vehicle weighs six tons, then the replica is made from polystyrene and fiber glass, it weighs 950 kg. The visitors also will have a chance to see an additional model aerodynamic design team that created Bloodhound car could be driven.

Before you reach that point, the car produces lift in the number of dangerous at high speeds on the model. However, by playing the position and form a key element of the rear of the car, the design team to find solutions that will set the shockwave that passes around and under the vehicle when it became supersonic. This effort was assisted by the project sponsor, Intel.

Company's computer chip capable of carrying large computer power to solve the problem of lift. "This is called a configuration of 10," said Chapman. "It's very stiff in the rear, the car was getting a track-in a very narrow section. Between November and March, we reduce the ability to lift 11 tons to 0 - the ability to lift at Mach 1.3. At this point, we had an aerodynamic shape that you can see the replica of that car. This car is very stable. "

Audi re-create the buzz. As reported by, The German manufacturer Audi A7 luxury sedan launched in Munich, Germany. In the early stages, most brand new generation of Audi's sedan range will be marketed in Germany by the end of this year.

Audi A7 is claimed will be the strongest competitors from Mercedes-Benz CLS, Jaguar XF, as well as the BMW Gran Turismo. However, unlike the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo, A7 did not have a raised roofline, it was intended to add space for passengers.

Meanwhile, call, Audi A7 Sportback is reality between five doors car functions with the form of a coupe. Thus was born a handsome sedan, sporty luxury at the same time.

Audi A7 concept first introduced at the Detroit Motor Show 2009 mat. The car that has length of 4.95 meters, 1.93 m width, and height of 1.40 m. has only a 0.30 drag coefficient.

Audi equips A7, 3,000 cc six-cylinder engine, TDI. The machine is capable of spraying up to 225 horsepower power and torque is 550 Newton meters. However, Audi is also producing the type of engine 2800 cc six-cylinder TDI-powered 201 horsepower.

Peugeot-Citroen Use Ultracapacitor for Stop-Start

Stop-start system is more widely used by car manufacturers on their latest products lately. In fact, two-wheeled vehicles also began to follow-up. For example, Honda PCX. But, using different designations (idling stop).

Nevertheless, the diesel engine, the system is not very much utilized. Parties, to restart (turn back) machine, it takes more power than gasoline. This could cause the battery is overdrawn. Or, if you want to use large-capacity battery, will add weight.

Car manufacturers, which states have succeeded in using the stop-start on diesel engines is the PSA Peugeot Citroën of France. They use ultracapacitor to store electrical energy, which helps the battery start the engine while shorthanded. Therefore, by the PSA system called e-booster.

In addition to its main task as a stop-start system is activated, when a car slid on a jammed city streets or a lot of red lights, e-booster can also help turn on the engine when cold (early morning).

In stop-start system-PSA diesel engine called the e-HDi-motor is used which also functions as a starter alternator (integrated starter and alternator). Valeo starter-alternator that generates artificial 2.2 kW. Equipped with electronic power system (inverter).

Explained, the PSA will use the i-phase feature in the first-in 1.4-liter diesel engine and 1.6 liters. Machines are also improved, among other turbocharger lubrication system, increasing the pressure injection pump, crankshaft bearings, flywheel and strengthened with two weights.

There's also the alternator voltage control that produces regenerative charging to the battery when the driver lifted his foot from the accelerator pedal (deceleration). PSA ultracapacitor used this capability Farad/5V 600 works, which derive energy from the car electrical system.

Actually, the e-booster also functions as a support of the electrical system. By using this system, for the 2.0-liter diesel engine, no need to use a 100 Ah battery and of course will reduce the weight of the vehicle. In fact, can also be used to drive the power steering when the engine died.

Fuel Pump Damage, 5000 Units Jaguar XK and XF Withdrawn

Automotive product recalls now as has become fashionable in North America. Once in the week are listed BMW 5 Series 5 and Series Grand Turismo, Nissan Cube and interesting crossover Subaru Outback and Legacy sedans, Jaguar is now interesting news came Jaguar XK and 5000 units of XF.

The reason for both types of withdrawal was problematic on rotaks or gas station that works electrically. As a result, the engine died when the car suddenly drive, thus potentially causing an accident.

As reported by, Tuesday (27/7), the National Institute of Highway Safety United States (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration NHTSA) calls the two products was drawn in 2010 and 2011 models.

"The system input on electric fuel pump was installed with is not perfect. So that the supply of fuel to the engine does not happen, the supply of gasoline engines followed choked to death. This problem could potentially cause an accident, "said NHTSA.

British manufacturers were rumored to have announced that the withdrawal plans. This luxury car maker also said starting on August 30 fix.

Porsche 911 with Flywheel Generator

Porsche, SupersPort luxury car specialist, is currently aggressively developing hybrid cars. At the Geneva Motor Show early last month, Porsche introduced a three-car hybrids directly, i.e. 911 GT3 R (dragster), Spyder 918 concept car and SUV Cayenne S. Great, all three apply different concepts.

Two Motor
From these models, the most interesting is the 911 GT3 R. Configuration and components used, the difference compared to conventional hybrids. In this case, to store energy recovered from braking, do not use batteries, but the generator flywheel, which is placed, in the cockpit, next to the driver.

The greatness of this generator, capable of storing energy in the high density and can also remove it quickly. The ability to store energy generators, 120 kW (160 PS). Remarkably again, the charging energy of it only lasts 6-8 seconds.

Flywheel generators of electrical energy, when used, were sent to two electric motors mounted on the front wheels. Setup motor is also capable of generating power 60 kW (80PS). Power electric motor is used only in addition, to help work the main drivers, namely 6-cylinder gasoline engine, boxer, 4.0-liter, 480 PS mounted on the rear.

Flywheel generator technology is actually similar to the Kinetic Energy Recover Systems (KERS), which used F1 cars (this year may not be used). Porsche get this technology from Williams Hybrid Power.

40 000 rpm
Flywheel generator is an electric motor with a rotor that can spin to 40,000 rpm, the mechanical energy as an energy saving cycle. When the car braked, kinetic energy is converted electric motor on the front axle into electric energy. It can happen, because the motor to change tasks, from the electric motor becomes a generator. Furthermore, electrical energy is transmitted and stored in the flywheel generator.

The energy stored in the flywheel generator can be used anytime. But most often is when accelerated after cornering or precedes another car. Motorists can also do overrider manually, control the flywheel generators work by pressing the boost button on the steering wheel. Electrical energy from the flywheel generator directly sent to the electric motor on the front axle. When energy is taken, the generator slows down the electromagnetic flywheel.

Because energy is obtained without increasing engine speed, fuel consumption so thrifty. The amount of fuel carried may be reduced. Pitstop is much less frequency. Proof of this new technology gains made Porsche at 24-hour endurance race, in Nüburgring on 15 and May 16 next to the driver, Nico Hülkenberg, F1 driver from AT & T Williams team.

Apparently, racing cars can also be economical and environmentally friendly!

BMW Turn Back iSetta Three Wheels

Rumor iSetta BMW will be turned on again by approaching reality. Instead, contrived Ralph Panhuyzen proposes an efficient vehicle (Space Efficient Vehicle = SEV). Indeed, what is iSetta ?

iSetta is a small three-wheeled vehicle that reaps success in World War II era. BMW had produced it in 1957 combined between cars and motorcycles.

For this new, still embraces three wheels (two in front and one in back) with the crossover concept. Although small, capable of racing at speeds of between 125 to 155 km / hr. Regarding the engine, yet to be decided, could be conventional or electric power.

"If people are interested in crossover 125-155 km / hour, it is not possible to create thousands of new workers," said Panhuyzen.

SEV drawn by the designer as the best combination between the car (front) and motorcycle (rear). The concept, the semi-use of his tricycle or three-wheeled vehicles.

Interestingly, the composition of the seat. The driver remains positioned as a leader. While the front passenger was slightly behind the driver that the passengers could look in the rearview mirror. Then, there is Lane Assist lane keeping system of the car on the road.

Here, Offal Honda Revo Techno AT

What reason was making matic Honda Revo Techno AT has a good capability. The main weapon was found on motorcycle engine innards. What are its advantages?

Inside the engine room, flapping wing manufacturer brand logo is applying efficient technology and low-friction technology called EFT. Function, minimizing friction between components machine. The result, the machine working more optimal, efficient, and most importantly fuel-efficient.

There is a key point in the use of piston-textured (rough surface of piston) which is made of lightweight materials. This will alleviate the performance of the engine revolution. Rough surfaces can reduce friction between the piston and the cylinder chamber. Ends, more efficient fuel consumption.

Furthermore, the distance axis of the cylinder or cylinder off set against the axis of the crankshaft offset too close together. This condition also reduces friction on the piston. Technology or the trigger valve rocker arm is equipped with a roller also reduce friction with the shaft ridge or better known as the camshaft is in the process of ejection of fuel into the combustion chamber. Create minimal friction increasing efficiency in energy.

For the stability of engine performance, Honda has also implemented a double cooling system. First, the cooling air to the CVT is obtained from the air funnel. Second, cooling the engine room, which was performed with oil. Reduction of heat in the engine much more effectively maintain the temperature remains stable, particularly on road traffic jams and long trips so it is more durable and long lasting.

The position of the air funnel located above the surface of the engine-out work set the incoming air in the engine. In addition to cooling the engine, a position it also reduces the risk of entry of water into the engine. This is to maintain maximum engine performance.

"All the technology supplied by Honda in Revo Techno AT strongly supports the creation of a strong performance, but still economical. That's strengths," said Oni Setiawan Technical Service PT Astra Honda Motor (AHM), who is also Chief Technician Journey Smart Revolution.

Another target, identify and ensure the infrastructure for elektromobility, including car users habits and needs of product development at the future. The project will begin running early next year.

Michael Macht, the President and Deputy CEO Porsche AG, said the project is a contribution from Porsche in the development of electric cars. "Definitive, we will produce electric sports car in the future. The concept we developed is acceptable if the quality of the product being offered is a typical Porsche, "he said.

Electric flywheel
Previously, Porsche has developed plug-in hybrid cars on the 918 Spyder sports. As planned, these plug-in hybrids will be mated with high technological breakthroughs, namely motor fuels and electromobility. Reportedly also, the plug-in hybrid car Porsche produced a very low CO2, 70 g / km, and three liters of gasoline consumption for 100 kilometers. Sports car is capable of producing a total power 660PS.

No less interesting, Porsche has been using a hybrid system on the 911 GT3 R to racing, with the use of two electric motors 82 are mounted on the PS front axle. This is done by simply adding power eight-cylinder engine produced 480 PS mounted on the rear wheels.

Porsche 911 GT3 R of this hybrid does not use conventional batteries to store electricity and forwarded to the electric motor.

Danger Air Bubbles in the Car Radiator

Almost all modern car engines use a water cooling system to maintain warmer temperatures. So, the water become "blood" which channels the heat from generating sources to the final disposal.

The problem, no air bubbles appear in the path of cooling water. Can disrupt the air entering the pressure in the system and ultimately disrupt the engine cooling water task. Greater risk because of overheated engines among component position in the cars is now more tightly.

Air can enter the radiator cap when opened and closed. That air exists between surface water and radiator cap. In addition, air may also exist because the radiator cap condition was not good.

At the radiator cap there is a functioning valve airflow from the reservoir tank when the heat and sucking water from the reservoir to the radiator (when cold).

How to expel the trapped air? Follow the steps below

1. Make sure the temperature of the engine in cold conditions.
2. Open the radiator cap. Turn on the machine (so the water circulates). After that, enter the water to the mouth of the radiator, and stop if it is full.
3. Cover again with a perfect radiator.
4. After that, unscrew the air dump. Waster closed position every different car brands. The location can be seen in the vehicle owner manuals.
5. Notice the water coming out of the valve. If there is scum, then it indicates there is still air in the cooling channels. That means you have to keep doing this process until that comes out is water without foam.
6. Check the amount of water in the tube reservoir reserves. If not, add up to the limit.

Toyota Hilux Double Cab Relies on Big Labor

Toyota Hilux Double Cabin eventually marketed (DC) in Indonesia. Of the several variants that are made in Thailand, for consumers in Indonesia, Toyota Hilux DC chose intercooler turbo diesel engine (TDI), common rail technology with a power handling: part-time 4x4.

These options make the Hilux DC superior in some respects compared to competitors who first entered Indonesia. Main effort.
Appearances. Compared with single cabin version (SC), the latest appearance of the Toyota pickup, this looks more handsome and muscular. The causes, dimensions of this vehicle as a whole is greater than the SC 460 mm, except in the tub. Especially for the tub, DC, about 460 mm shorter.

Design grille and headlamps together Hilux DC and SC. Differences exist in the front, namely the hood. For DC, equipped with a hood scoop or a funnel of water and make it looks more macho.

Another difference is the tire size, type and model of wheel. Although both use the tire 15, the palm of DC more broadly, namely 255, while the SC 205. For wheels, SC using the plates, while the DC of the alloy. Another additional Footstep aluminum mounted on the right side and left side.
Interior. DC is more luxurious interior, although the design of the dashboard and steering wheel are the same. Special to the dashboard, DC using two colors (two tone): black and ivory, while the SC monotone, black.

Equipment that is included in the Hilux interior is air conditioning, CD player with audio 2DIN four speakers, while the instruments using analog models within the three circles.
Power Source. Because Hilux DC engineered as a vehicle for a variety of field or a hard worker, chose the Toyota 3.0-liter diesel engine. In their home country, Hilux DC had two diesel engine choices that are 2.5 liters and 3.0 liters.

Technology is the mainstay of common rail engines and turbo intercooler and named D4D (Direct 4-stroke Common Rail Diesel Turbo) by Toyota.

Compared with competitors who already marketed in Indonesia, the power output is greatest Hilux, which is 163 PS, while torque of 35 kgm. Amazingly, the torque is obtained at relatively low speed and the 'flat' (flat), that is 1400-3400 rpm. With these characteristics, the machine is suitable for off-road and a lot climb field. Machines also tend to be thrifty because, to gain traction, not to step on the pedal a deep (high speed).

Other features of Toyota’s proud of this machine are the intercooler. This tool is used to cool air sucked by the turbine before supplied to the engine. In this way, the machine works more efficiently because the temperature can be kept relatively low.

For the turbo, use variable nozzle technology. With this, the ability of the turbo, ranging from low and high speed just as effective. The phenomenon of turbo lag at low rpm can be prevented. Conversely, when the machine is working at a higher speed, excessive turbo spin could also be prevented. In this way, endurance turbo be better.
4x4 Part Time. To distribute power from the engine to the wheels, Toyota uses five-speed manual transmission. From the transmission of engine power transmitted to the transfer of the case that part-time work with the system. In this way, vehicles can work from a 4x4 system (off-road) to a 4x2 (on-road) or vice versa. To operate the transfer case must be done manually with the position of H2, H4, N, and L4.

The shift from 4x2 to 4x4 can be done while the road, but it must be under the speed of 80 km / hr. Conversely, transfer of H4 to H2 can be done at each speed. The transfer of H4 to L4, the vehicle must be blocked before or below the speed of 8 km / hr.
Suspension. In front, Toyota is using a double wishbone with coil plus a stabilizer, while the rear wheels, used per leaf. Another additional steering with hydraulic power assistance or power steering, while the front brake discs and rear drum.

Under these conditions it was natural that Toyota could offer double-cab vehicle with a competitive price.

BMW Recall Series 5 and Series 5 Gran Turismo

German premium carmaker BMW withdrawal action for improvement (recall) of the Series 5 and Series 5 GT year 2011 production in the United States as reported by Carscoop received from the American Institute of Highway Safety (NHTSA).

Withdrawal made because there is a problem with fuel sensors. Especially liked the indicator screw. Thus, the amount shown does not match that in the tank. This is very dangerous, not only stalled, but could be at risk of accidents.

The number who campaigned to reach is 6000 units. "BMW recall production in 2010 and 2011 Series 5 and Series 5 Gran Turismo made from January 12 until July 1, 2010. Pinched the fuel level sensor. This is why, when the indicator shows the amount of gasoline that much, but the tank just does not," said statement from the NHTSA.

New BMW X3

More powerful, more efficient and more practical mid-sized soft-roader unveiled. BMW has released the first official pictures and details for its second-generation X3 that is set to become the fuel efficiency benchmark for the luxury mid-size SUV segment when it goes on sale locally in March 2011.

The all-new X3, which grows in dimensions to further distance itself from the smaller X1, adopts an eight-speed automatic, engine stop-start function and two new engines for launch to improve its green credentials.

The base model xDrive20d is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel that gains 5kW (to 135kW) but improves fuel economy by 14 per cent to 5.6 litres per 100km compared with its direct predecessor.

A range-topping model for now is the xDrive35i, which gains the 225kW/400Nm turbocharged six-cylinder that was first introduced on the company’s 5-Series range. Consumption of 8.8L/100km is superior to the 9.7L/100km of the 30i model it replaces.

A six-speed manual is standard on the 20d and the eight-speed auto standard on the 35i. Most car makers are offering stop-start technology with manual gearboxes, but on the X3 it’s also included on auto models.

Both X3 models are four-wheel drive, and BMW’s medium soft-roader isn’t expected to follow the X1 by offering a rear-drive variant.

The new model is 79mm longer (to 4648mm) than the outgoing X3 that was roundly criticised since its 2004 launch for both its sharp ride and austere interior. A wheelbase increase of 15mm contributes to BMW’s claims that X3 mark II offers increased rear-seat legroom.

Boot space also increases, by 70 litres to 550L. This expands to 1600L when the rear seats – which have switched from a 60/40 split to a 40-20-40 arrangement – are folded down. BMW claims the luggage capacity is best in class.

A multitude of options will include variable dampers, reverse-view camera, xenon headlights, iDrive menu operating system and a handling aid called Performance Control that can brake an inside rear wheel and shuffle more power to the outer wheel to help ‘push’ the vehicle around corners.

BMW also claims the X3’s optional 8.8-inch satellite navigation screen is the segment’s largest on-board monitor.

The screen is now incorporated into the dash rather than popping out of the top of the dash as part of a major overhaul for the X3's cabin. Key controls are more driver-oriented than before while BMW is promising higher-grade materials to lift interior quality above that of the original.

The X3’s new body shape doesn’t look vastly different to its predecessor that has always had slightly awkward-looking proportions because of the mix of long, thin bonnet and chunky passenger section. The new model seems to share more in common with the design of the baby X1 rather than large X5.

The side glass is more pronounced after the introduction of a chrome surround, however, and the flanks gain more dramatic-looking rising crease lines.

Production of the X3 also shifts from Austrian company Magna to join the X5 and X6 assembly line in BMW’s Spartanburg plant in the US. BMW will showcase the new X3 publicly at September’s Paris motor show.

Curve Control System from Ford

Ford created a technology Curve Control System (CCS) for the car driver. This tool could prevent an accident due to carelessness of drivers to maneuver around the corner quickly, so that the car loses stability.

In America, 50 000 accidents recorded each year because of mistakes that turned very fast (high speed). Now, with this feature, Ford hopes to be useful, particularly for the highway.

The advantages of this branch controller technology, the four wheels can be braked with the smooth. Then, when a car drove by outside speed limit, engine torque can be reduced to lower the speed to 15 km / h per second. That way, cars could go back on track.

Ford explained that CCS works on rough surfaces, when wet or dry conditions. So, if the car does not veer as desired driver, the technology can restore the driveway into a safe position.

These technologies open up a breakthrough. Because of the stability control system on the car was introduced in 1987 under the name of Electronic Stability Control (ESC). Only, the function to detect and minimize wheel skid occurs. So, when ESC successfully detect the occurrence of loss of control, ESC automatically help put the brakes to help the driver's steering wheel can be controlled.

In 1990, Mitsubishi introduced a similar technology is called Diamante (Sigma), in which the electronically controlled traction. And for the newest cars, Mitsubishi Active Skid and now uses Traction Control (ASTC).

Then two German automobile manufacturers are also introducing the technology. Like BMW began production on the model 1992 is equipped with the title of Continental Automotive Systems (CAS), which can reduce engine torque.

Mercedes also did not want to miss. In 1992, in cooperation with Robert Bosch GmbH (as does the BMW too) call it Electronic Stability Programmed (ESP).

American car manufacturers are planning to put on the kind of crossover, SUV, pickup and van in 2015.

Renault DeZir Future Vision Renault

Renault DeZir Concept accidentally leaked via the official website today. Renault DeZir will actually on debut world at the Paris Motor Show 2010 (October 2 to 17).

Renault DeZir illustrates Renault's commitment to designing cars more emotional. We can see from the lines and color that express exterior DeZir tempestuous passion.

DeZir two-seater coupe is derived from a single motion of the electric motor is placed in the center-rear weight distribution to optimize. Torque and power DeZir 150 hp and 226 Nm. Cars with rear-wheel system-drive is able to accelerate from 0-100 kpj in 5 seconds. While lithium-ion battery 24 kW / h which is behind the seat ensures you can walk up to 160 km.

DeZir agility gained from the body is made of Kevlar and steel tube chassis. Did not reach the 850 kg weigh just 830 kg alias. Tubular shells are similar to those used Renault Megane Trophy race car. Suspension also share a platform, uses double wishbones settings.

DeZir also adopt KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System), used in the world of F1. When the car berdeselerasi, the kinetic energy collected and stored in the battery. In certain conditions, the driver DeZir stay pressing a button on the steering wheel to get an extra boost while (temporary power boost) which utilize that energy.

Items are handled directly Renault design boss, Laurens van den Acker, this took a number of reputable companies. For tires, Renault took Michelin. Dipasrahkan audio system to IRCAM (Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique / Musique, was founded by Pierre Boulez in 1969). And workmanship body ditukangi G Studio.

DeZir absolutely not equipped internal combustion engine, and just hang to the battery. DeZir owners will get three options for charging method. First, they can charge batteries at home - takes about eight hours. Second, using the method of Filling fast (fast charging) 400V 3-phase (only takes 20 minutes to fill 80% of battery capacity). Finally, replace it.

Oiya, a second door opened similar DeZir Gullwing Mercedes-Benz AMG SLS.

BMW ConnectedDrive, Read Email on Car Dashboard

Later owners of BMW cars no longer bother to read short messages and emails while driving a car. The reason, BMW has recently launched BMW ConnectDrive.

ConnectDrive is a system that allows a person receiving an SMS or email on the Blackberry mobile phones to LCD screen mounted on the dashboard of a car.

Tools that make the BMW claims can reduce the risk when driving. To connect the device, it only takes a Bluetooth connection from your mobile phone into ConnectDrive system.

Then ConnectDrive program that will automatically connect to the city of messages, both of SMS or email.

But unfortunately, means that only helps to read short messages and electronic mail, to send is not allowed because the driver is considered to endanger life.
In addition, existing systems can also perform on ConnectDrive Text to Speech, which means that incoming email message can be directly read out so that further reduce the risk of accidents.

Confidentiality in an SMS or email that there is less reliable. Text to Speech good use if only you were in a car or an incoming message is not confidential. In addition to SMS, BMW ConnectDrive system can also be used to make phone calls. The plan ConnectDrive BMW cars will be installed in output next year

The Cause of the Irregularities Toyota Cars are Still in Debate

Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC), says the results of investigations into the events of Toyota and Lexus car accident allegedly due to the gas pedal with problems showed the opposite. According to Japanese manufacturers, almost all of it happened because of driver error.

"Almost all of the driver stepped on the gas pedal not brake," said Mike Michels, spokesman for Toyota in Torrance, California, as reported by, Wednesday (14 / 7).

Toyota is currently looking for the cause of the uncontrollable speed on the car or truck. The reason is due to alleged beresnya accelerator and braking system that, eight million units of Toyota products in various parts of the world drawn.

Michels said, the institute has examined the 2000 report related to the gas pedal. Not with the exception of data recorded during the accident.

"There are various causes, the trapped pedal, pedal interested or (carpet dragged the car deck), foreign bodies in the vehicle until one of use of the pedal," he explained.

A spokesman confirmed, almost all wrong driver stepped on the gas pedal when the brake pedal should be. Michels asserted that when asked how many people are making mistakes when using the gas pedal of an accident.

"Companies have not found an error in the function of electronic systems (at Toyota)," he stated.

The answer was reaping strong reaction. Joan Claybrook, a former official of the National Institute of Highway Safety United States (NHTSA) is one of them.

Advocacy group Public Citizen President of the United States it is precisely to question the findings of Toyota's call, the accident because the driver's fault.

In fact, the group had asked for the Toyota and regulators in the State Abang Sam's to more seriously investigate the possibility of failure of electronic control functions. "That's really ridiculous," said Claybrook comment on Toyota's findings.

"He (Toyota) must see (the system) electronics in the car (Toyota) and everyone knows it," said Claybrook.

Meanwhile, reports the Wall Street Journal reported yesterday, Wednesday (14 / 7) call NHTSA analysis of data recording when the accident happened when the incident proved that open throttle and brakes are not working. However, NHTSA spokesman refused to comment on the report.

NHTSA calls, due to uncontrolled speed problems on the car since 2000 and there have been 71 accidents resulting in 89 people flying.

Persitiwa a tragic one is, that feeling in a family of four lives in the United States in 2009. At that time, in August 2009, Mark Syalor along with three members of the family Lexus ES350 menumpangi crossing State Route 125, Santee, California.

At speed the car reaches 120 miles per hour, the gas pedal suddenly interested and cars can not be controlled. Finally, the accident occurred and four naywa one family that was floated.

Now, NHTSA in cooperation with the panel of the National Academy of Sciences and the United States space agency, NASA is conducting an investigation of the gas pedal. The investigation process would take place within a few months.

While Toyota is currently facing over 325 lawsuits in state and federal courts related to the unwanted acceleration. This problem has also been examined by MPs of the United States.
