Every racecar driver aims to win every racecar challenge, this is only possible when equipped with the right vehicle; however, the role of great wheel in car racing cannot be over emphasized. Wheels are the backbone of the vehicle, the pillar that holds the weight, the aerodynamic support. Wheels are often the determinants of success in drag racing besides the aesthetics they provide.
There are a myriad of wheel brands out there with a good profile and solid history but there is a need to go for the best. A critical selection and of course with safety and durability in mind has led us to pick out four brand wheels with the best racing wheels in the market; they are as follows:
With a long history of manufacturing high end wheels, this Japanese brand series stands out with a blend of power and endurance. This light weight enkei rpf1 wheels are built from the hightest grade aluminum cast alloy each wheel is built to endure stress of any kind. It blends flow-forming technology with MAT to produce the sturdiest 5-spoked wheel with a lifetime warranty under any weather condition.
Enkei RPF1 Wheels
This brand takes a cue from the Enkei brand by adopting the MAT manufacturing processes. Konig features a 12-spoked light alloy with sizes 15-18 inches. Finishes are simply divine and available in various custom colors.
Talk about expensive! This wheel puts affluence in drag racing with its unique flow forging technology. It features a classy concave profile design with five spokes and multiple spoke profiles that gives it a touch of panache. The wheel is set at $1100-$7000 and comes in sizes from 18-34 inches, as well as custom finishes.
Carbon Revolution CR9
The future of wheel is here! This amazing single piece wheel is made from carbon fiber which is known to confer light weight and yet maintain a rigid and sturdy structural integrity. This is the evolution of racing wheels as we know it. It is highly priced at $15,800
Flow Free is pretty popular game on the mobile phone platforms; you connect the correct colored dots with the least amount of moves used, you win. Volvo seems to be doing exactly that in their plans to expand and change the automotive industry big time. Should they succeed, they’ll be hitting homeruns after homeruns.
By 2019, they’ll build cars which will have battery powered engines along with the diesel one. They’ll also make hybrid models along with conventional petrol ones and between 2019 and 2021, they plan to make 5 100% electric vehicles. The Volvo Chief executive has announced that traditional petrol vehicles would be coming to an end very soon. The first electrical models are going to be built in China, and if they prove to be successful, production would start in Europe and U.S.A. The Chinese automotive titan Geely has already plug-in hybrid models. Though not fully functional on electricity, the cars do go a fair few dozen miles, before switching to petrol. The pricing of these hybrid models is a tad bit more than the petrol one. About £13,250 more to be exact, leaving the end price of the cars at £61,650.
The move towards hybrid electric cars, made by Volvo is the first one in a grand scale kind of approach. The government and most people see this in a very positive light. About 40% of U.K’s air pollution comes from burning of petrol and carbon emissions from the cars. Cars running on electricity or at least, reducing the time it runs on petrol, decrease the carbon emission and air pollution immensely. On top of that, as these non-renewable resources become scarcer, new methods have to be developed in order to survive. So reducing the usage in this way, would save tons of non-renewable resources like diesel, coal, octane and other organic fuels. All this initiatives, fuel towards a healthier, smarter and more freely flowing society.
The very first thing that popped in to all of our head-at least once- as a child was : what the hell is the purpose of a spoiler in a car. I mean apart from making the car look tremendously cool- the other reasons were very much an enigma to us. By now I am pretty sure all of guys have a faint- if not clear idea- for the real purpose of a spoiler in a car. In this article, I will discuss in detail about the purpose of a spoiler.
Let us start with simple physics- we all know a moving body will encounter drag or a resistive force that will oppose its motion. This is not good news for fast cars as it will fail to reach its maximum speed. However- with the proper use of aerodynamics, this resistive or drag force can be greatly cut down. There are many ways in which this can be done, but now I will only talk about how a spoiler does its job.
The spoiler allows the air to flow smoothly and a laminar flow which in turns reduces drag force- thus allowing the car to enjoy maximum of its engine thrust.
Spoilers come in all shapes and sizes and in a wide range of colors. They sure are an eye candy-however- their job is much more important than just giving the car a good look. You must be wondering why is it called a spoiler and not something aerodynamic related or something related to drag. Well, the name origins from the fact that spoilers ‘spoil’ the natural flow of air and turns in to such a flow that is in favor of the car.
So, now you know that stylish plastic material attached to the back of sports car is way more than it meets to the eye.
