Air-Propelled Bike

In one TV programme I saw an air compressed driven motor to propel a bike. This technology offers new alternative cleaner energy for transportation. It’s was Jem who has Big Idea…An Air-Propelled Bike.

Eco-Engineers Dick Strawbridge And Jem Stansfield Aim To Fulfil A Dream. But First They Must Test The Potential Danger Of Compressed Gas So They Build A Contraption From A Pair Of Giant Bolt Cutters.

Jem Stansfield Eco-Engineer Puts A “Rocket Up His Bottom” In The Form Of An Air-Powered Bike. All In The Aid Of Science.

On above picture, Jem took carbon-fiber air tanks that are usually used by firefighters as part of their breathing equipment and connected them to two rotary air engines that drive the rear wheel. One of the benefits of using compressed air over batteries is that you can recharge in a few seconds. Of course, the compressor works on electricity, so that’s not always a clean power source. But even if your local utility uses coal, if you recharge at night or off peak, chances are you are using power that would be wasted otherwise because coal power plants take too long to shut down and restart, so they are often kept producing at night. But it is with a clean electricity source for the compressor that the air-powered motorcycle becomes a truly green ride. (www.treehugger.com)

Software Otomotif

Autodata brings a new approach to the delivery of technical information for the professional technician with minimum text, numerous simplified illustrations and a rare clarity of presentation.

We opened offices near Boston, and built a complete library of US vehicle data. We talked to vehicle manufacturers, joined important industry associations and visited trade shows. We increased our editorial staff of experienced technicians-turned-technical writers.

Our marketing and sales team toured the continent, listening to technicians who told us they wanted something new – that they hadn’t found the ideal product yet. They told us not to bother with “the same old thing” provided by other manuals and electronic systems.

Our experience and research told us we could provide what customers want – better value! Our recent entry into the North American market, along with our decades of experience, knowledge and sophisticated computer tools, has allowed us a fresh start – with a unique line of products.

Autodata’s core business is the research, compilation and creation of technical information for use in independent automotive workshops for the repair and service of cars, motorcycles and commercial vehicles. Although most of these workshops are non-franchised, ranging from small garages to large groups, fast-fits and a variety of specialists, a growing number of franchised workshops also need information on other manufacturers’ vehicles.

Autodata covers a number of subjects including:
Technical data, vehicle identification, service adjustments, lubricants and capacities, ignition system, fuel system, tightening torques, brake discs and brake drums, repair times, wheel alignment, timing belts, timing chains and gears, tyre sizes and pressures, service illustrations, service schedules, service interval indicators, key programming, diagnostic trouble codes, engine management systems, pin data, trouble shooter, airbags/SRS, air conditioning, ABS, electrical component locations and wiring diagrams.

 

Autodata is pleased to announce
the launch of Autodata IS . . .

. . . the best designed and valued shop information system in the USA. Specially created for the independent repair shop, Autodata IS covers the vast majority of everyday maintenance, service, diagnostics and repairs.

Mitsubishi Lancer EX 2.0 GT, Datang dan Menang!

31-July-2008

Redaksi telah mencicipi performanya di Ibaraki, Jepang

OTOCOID, Jakarta – Penampilan perdananya di ajang IIMS 2008 langsung memikat pengunjung yang memenuhi pameran otomotif terbesar di Indonesia, beberapa waktu lalu itu. Kembaran Mitsubishi Evolution X yang amat sporty namun elegant itu pun memperoleh penghargaan sebagai Best Sedan Mid Size IIMS 2008.

 
 

Terlepas dari sosoknya yang memang paling baru, penampilan Mitsubishi Lancer EX 2.0 GT memang jauh lebih menarik dari All New Honda Civic maupun Toyota All New Corolla Altis. Buat anak muda yang gemar dengan performance, kehadiran generasi terbaru Lancer ini jelas merupaka suguhan yang sangat menarik setelah sekian lama penampilan Lancer hanya itu-itu saja.

 
 

Soal performa ini redaksi telah mencicipinya di Ibaraki, Jepang, ketika berlangsung Tokyo Motor Show 2007 Oktober lalu. Di trek khusus pengujian milik pemerintah Jepang itu, redaksi tidak hanya menikmati performanya, juga handlingnya yang trasa sporty.  Saat itulah redaksi dan kawan-kawan wartawan yang diundang khusus oleh PT. Krama Yudha Tiga Berlian Motors itu mendapatkan kepastian kehadiran Lancer generasi terbaru di bursa otomotif Indonesia.

 
 

Kami juga merasakan performance saudara kembarnya yang berpenggerak empat roda dan dipersenjatai turbo untuk pabrik tenaganya. Mobil yang identik dengan ganasnya medan relly dunia WRC itu benar-benar memikat. Teknologi yang disandangnya benar-benar membuat pengendaranya mudah mengajak Evo X ini melibas trek sesulit apapun!

 
 

Kembali ke soal Mitsubishi Lancer EX 2.0 GT memadukan mesin 2000 cc DOHC MIVEC 16 valve dengan transmisi INVECS III CVT 6 speed sport mode. Kombinasi ini membuat Lancer EX 2.0 GT ini makin memberikan kenyamanan bagi pengendaranya tanpa mengurangi karakter mesinnya yang tetap liar dan bertenaga.

 
 

Pagusnya, model transmisi otomatik itu juga dapat dikendalikan di lingkar kemudi. Jadi sport modenya dapat dioperasikan menggunakan paddle shiffer yang terintegrasi di stir mobil. Dengan sentuhan jari-jemari kita bias memuaskan sekaligus merasakan performa sportynya Mitsubishi Lancer EX 2.0 GT.

 
 

Masih di soal kenyamanan, Lancer EX 2.0 GT ini menggunakan rancangan kaki-kaki pilihan. Suspensi misalnya, menggunakan MacPherson strut dengan coil spring dan stabilizer bar ditambah dengan rear multilink system & stabilizer bar, kemudian disempurnakan dengan strut tower bar pada suspensi depan yang bertujuan mengontrol dan merespon gaya grafitasi pada saat bermanuver.

 
 

Karena performanya yang luar biasa, Lancer menggunakan model penghenti laju disc brake di keempat rodanya. Ditambah pula dengan ABS dan EBD. Penggunakan teknologi ini membuat gaya pengereman yang sesuai layaknya pada kondisi normal.

 
 

Beberapa teknologi lainnya yang memberikan rasa aman dan nyaman adalah RISE Body, Dual SRS Airbag, dan Keyless Entery & Immobilizer. Jadi, nunggu apa lagi?
