Citroën DS3 R3T to power the Junior WRC this year – World Rally Blog

Citroën DS3

Citroën DS3

All Citroën DS3 cars will be factory prepared to set standards and rules and all teams will use Michelin tyres and fuel supplied by the FIA‘s partner in crime . FIA claims this step is going to make JWRC even more accessible… no, hold on, …

 

eric roberts‘s insight:

This will be a great site watching the Citroen DS3’s racing

Significantly,this is a great announcement from the FIA. So,the Junior World Rally Championships . Hence,will be the cars used in this category of the junior rally championships.

Citroën DS3,Michelin

Interestingly, the car will be a special front wheel drive turbocharges version. Hence, of this very popular French car. Consequently, this Citroën DS3 has been prepared by Citroen. Having to be used by all the participants. So who want to compete in this class of rally racing.

The Citroën DS3 will only be able to use Michelin tyres. But they are amongst the best tyres in the world anyhow. The new cars will benefit from having special springs and shock absorbers with modernised Brembo brakes fitted.

Citroën DS3

This new car will also be fitted with super lightweight alloy wheels. Including, 18 inch tyres and will have a 20 mm wider track for better stability and cornering. The engine will also be improved by the addition of a larger turbocharger to improve the engines combustion.

 

The Citroen DS3 R will be available to the public and is expected to be on sale at around the £23 to £24,000 mark.

Just as a footnote I was interested to see that Vauxhall have brought out the “Adam”, with colour mixes and matches very similar to the Citroën DS3 ?

Motorcycle Batteries Maintenance Tips-Look after your bike battery?

Motorcycle Batteries Maintenance Tips

This article  explains some of the pitfalls about buying a motorcycle battery. Motor cyclists should be careful when buying a new battery. But i do not want to be scare mongering. As long as you follow simple rules. Hence, it will be a perfectly safe operation to carry out. Your new battery can be bought at a cheap Motor-cycle battery price online. Of course, where possible, with a next working day delivery. Thousands of these batteries are bought online every year. Significantly, without any problems at all.

“Battery failure isn’t just inconvenient, it can often lead to dangerous problems. Before you take your bike far from home, learn what happened to Sarah. Anytime you take your motorcycle on a trip, you should make sure the battery is in optimum condition. If you have a typical, conventional battery, take a few moments to ensure that fluid levels are adequate before heading out. Remove the caps to see if the cells appear dry; if they are, add clean distilled water. Additionally, look for any signs of terminal corrosion and leaking acid, including tarnished chrome and faded paint. “If you aren’t confident in your ability to service a conventional battery, consider buying a sealed variety. These maintenance-free motorcycle batteries are ideal for people who like riding their bikes but don’t particularly enjoy using Batteries Maintenance Tips and working on them”

         Motorcycle batteries are very safe

Motor cycle batteries? which make or type?

The motorcycle battery market is flooded. Commonly, with all sorts of makes and different types of batteries. Significantly, this can be very complicated. Of course, I think that the internet is the best way to go about buying one of these batteries. Consequently, this way of buying motor cycle batteries. Keeps the job as simple as possible. Importantly, try to replace the part number of the battery the same as that you are replacing. So, like for like.

Differing manufactures are not such a problem ! Except that some motorcycle batteries come with differing part numbers. Of course, I was thinking of Varta and perhaps Bosch. A few years ago a European standard battery part number was introduced. Of course, to try to make all the battery manufacturers use the same number, but this seems to have fallen apart and you can get three different numbers for the same battery.

Japanese battery markings

The most common part numbers are on the Japanese bikes and will look like,”YTX9BS”; this to me is the most common type of battery. The European number found on a Varta will look like “53030”, so the numbers will differ depending where your bike is from. You will find though that most Japanese bikes will have the YTX9BS lettering, but BMW’s will have the 53030 Varta numbers.

In any case you will find it easier if you replace the battery that is fitted to your bike, will be best practice and unless you know what you are doing please don’t try to be clever and update or uprate the battery that you have fitted to the bike. Batteries are available for cherry pickers in Kings Lynn. Information about the worlds largest battery.

Volvo self driving cars- 100 to be tested on Swedish roads in pilot project …

Volvo self driving cars

Volvo has announced a pilot project that’ll see 100 Volvo self driving cars take to the roads of Gothenburg, Sweden, as the automaker continues in its efforts to bring a fully autonomous self driving cars to the market.

 

Eric Roberts‘s insight:

Volvo self driving cars

Hi it must be a strange feeling to get into a car that can steer and drive to its destination without any aid by a driver. I must be getting old ,because I can’t see for the life in me what these Volvo self driving cars are going to gain.

If that’s what people want why on earth don’t they stick to the driver- less train systems that we see in many countries these days? I would much prefer to sit on a train high up above the busy traffic “Than In Volvo self driving cars”. Significantly, modern technology is good, but it is not perfect. I recently visited France and had to turn off the motorway because it was blocked by an accident, a large truck had toppled over, completely blocking the two lane motorway.

Unfortunately, we had to turn off so I switched on my satellite navigation system, hoping to pick the motorway up further North. I keyed in Calais further North and the sat/nav kindly to me to three junctions South of the junction that I had to turn off on? It then came up with a server problem message, which rendered it useless?.

So I have my doubts about the technology used in these cars.

Here is a good snippet from the Popular Mechanics web-site about the strange sensation that their driver experienced when first handling one of these Volvo self driving cars,

Volvo self driving cars

“As soon as I hit the small black lane-centre button, I can feel the wheel stiffen in my hands. Suddenly the light bar atop it begins to glow a soft green, signaling that the car has taken over the task of steering. I had already surrendered control of the acceleration and braking to the vehicle’s adaptive cruise control, and now with my feet flat on the floor, I slowly un-wrap my fingers and release the wheel. Sitting in the passenger seat is Jeremy Salinger, who works on General Motors’ semi-autonomous car program. He’s seen the car do this dozens, possibly hundreds, of times, but, if only to reassure me, he states the obvious: “The car is in control now.”… http://www.popularmechanics.com/cars/news/industry/the-12-most-important-questions-about-self-driving-cars-16016418

Eric Roberts‘s insight:

Winter tyres for extra safety

SUV Winter tyres

It always amazes me the amount of SUV drivers that visit my garage here in Halifax UK, are not aware of the dangers that they face when driving in any kind of winter weather .

Even if it does not snow. So, the cold and wet weather will affect the way that their SUV vehicle. Hence, will perform on the roads, and they will be much safer. Thus on SUV Winter tyres.

I can now say without doubt, that this is a true fact. The article says that the SUVs on summer tyres. Are involved in more accidents relating to the weather conditions. Than on normal type saloon cars. The tyre sizes and overall diameters. Making the SUV vehicles more vulnerable in winter weather. Therefore, there is no doubt that SUV Winter tyres. So, will enhance the safety of the vehicle in winter weather.

SUV Winter tyres

Also many SUV drivers are not aware that their vehicles are only fitted with summer tyres. Of course, when they are first purchased. SUV Winter tyres have to be bought separately. They seem to be lulled into a false sense of security. Especially, when they see that their cars are fitted with big fat wheels and tyres. So, the truth is that this type of tyre will act in the opposite direction. Of course, when they are faced with cold temperatures and rain and snow. Indeed this type of tyre with its wide tread area acts exactly in the wrong direction, and makes the vehicles unstable on the icy and wet winter roads.

As the article states last year the AA alone had to rescue 8000 motorists who were stuck in ice snow and mud, and all this could have been prevented if the vehicle owners had fitted winter tyres. So if you take my advice it is not too late to fit a set of SUV Winter tyres on your SUV particularly, but on any vehicle, foe a safer winters driving.

 

Tyre Care for Lady drivers

Car Safety Tips-for Lady Garage Users – (Although Everyone can benefit from Car Safety Tips)

Car Safety Tips-for Lady Garage Users

While everyone can benefit from car safety tips. You will have to admit that women are more likely to need these tips. Of course, to help them out during unexpected and unfamiliar situations. While it would be great if  woman were well versed and equipped to handle wonky Disc Brakes or out of aligned tyres, that isn’t usually the case. Find below some great car safety tips to help you out and manage the unforeseen when you are driving.

When your car brakes fail

Car Safety Tips

Before all else, check if your car is equipped with anti-lock brakes or just regular ones. Knowing this important bit of information. Naturally, will help you determine how to manage when your brakes fail. To know this, when a light goes on with the logo ABS when you start your car. Then you have anti-lock brakes. If no light goes on, then you have regular brakes.  If your brakes fail, you need to downshift to a lower gear first. Next, pump your brakes three to four times to build up the brake fluid pressure.

If this does not work. So your next option would be to use the parking brake. Do this gradually, not abruptly, and be ready for the car to skid. With anti-lock brakes, practice your sudden stops at safe street situation. Of course, to get a feel of how they should perform.  When you press the brake all the way down, you should feel a strong vibration at the pedal, which will let you know the ABS system is working the way it should.

When car isn’t driving straight

If your car is veering to the left or right even when your steering wheel is straight. Chances are your wheels may need to be aligned. But before you head off to have them aligned, make sure to check off other possibilities that may cause your car to tend towards another direction when the steering wheel is straight.

Are you tyres properly inflated? Make sure they are inflated to the recommended  pressure, which you ought to find on the label attached to the driver’s side door. What about the wear pattern? Are you tyres round or are they out of shape? Are there missing pieces or lumps  along the side-wall? Also make sure that all your tyres are of the same type. Having several kinds  on one car can make for an unstable ride.

Once you have determined that there is nothing physically wrong with yours, you should bring in your vehicle for proper and professional wheel alignment to keep your vehicle running properly  and safely.

Unstable steering, clanking and banging sounds while driving, vibrations while driving

This could indicate a problem with your suspension. The suspension system of a vehicle takes the heaviest wear from the road and it is an important part in keeping your car stable while driving and ensures the driver and passenger’s safety.  If you go over a hump and the car continues to bounce up and down, chances are your shock absorbers are worn and may need

Some garages employ female mechanics who are always willing to give Car Safety Tips

replacing. Clanking and banging sounds may indicate that your shocks are getting caught and not bouncing back. Vibrations while driving on smooth surfaces should clue you in to have your shocks and suspension checked because they are not supposed to occur on a smooth road.

They say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

It is better to maintain your car properly and routinely in order to avoid any major mishaps. Most Car Safety Tips are useful, but you need to make sure to take your vehicle to a reputable and  professional garage that will ensure outstanding results and keep your car humming for a long time.

Eric Roberts insight:

UK Driverless cars ? what a joke?

Importantly, then I think it would be better to rephrase the statement as “uk driverless cars in the South of England”.

Anybody who travels around the North of England. Of course, would know that our roads in town and city centre are busting at the seams with traffic. We have had very little investment. Especially, to our road structures here in the North of England for years. Hence, successive governments have neglected to update the northern towns and cities. They cancelled the tram scheme in Leeds. Because of the costs! So, the East West train lines were to be electrified, but that never came off, because of lack of finance, now they can suddenly find some money by selling off their share in Eurostar to fund the development of Gatwick airport along with other projects down in the South, once again neglecting the northern towns and cities.

The only thing that I can think of that the government have done is to widen parts of the M62 motorway. We are desperately in need of a new road infrastructure to take us from North to South, before we completely grind to a halt. We all know what a nightmare it is trying to drive around West

UK driverless Cars
I must now admit that i thought that would not see electric cars being charged on the streets of cities, but they are now here? but i am not sure about the UK driverless Cars

Yorkshire in the rush hour traffic.

Now the government are going to give a £10 million prize to fund a town or city that becomes a testing ground for the UK driverless Cars. What a joke, the name of Milton Keynes has already been mentioned on more than one occasion, so I reckon that it’s a done deal. What chance would we have in the North for driverless cars, we are too congested as it is and one our largest cities Leeds, had to miss about on its tram system.

We do not need UK driverless Cars but a decent road and rail system, especially here in Yorkshire. The North is and will still be starved of investment, never mind this ridiculous idea of driverless cars, what a joke.

Eric Roberts insight:

Connecting 2 or More Leisure Batteries

It is entirely possible to connect more than two leisure or solar power batteries. But it must be in parallel. Therefore, this means that to retain the twelve volts that you require. Hence, you must connect the two positive terminals together. Naturally, and the two negative terminals together. By connecting the batteries in this way.Thus, as I have said you will retain the twelve volts that you will require.As a result, to power a twelve-volt system. For this reason, that is used on most cars and marine and leisure systems, it

will also double the amps for more power storage, which is why this is done in the first place. This method also means that your batteries will charge at the same rate.

It is also important to use the same type of batteries, the accompanying video will explain about the different types of Leisure Batteries and the best for most applications are AGM batteries.

Leisure Batteries can be connected in parallel

The Leisure Batteries that you connect together must also be the same type and age, preferably new batteries, it will be of no use if you connect a new battery with one that is old and has less power.

This will only make the new battery fail at a later stage and not give you the full power that you are looking for. It is also possible to connect each battery to a fuse, which will stop the risk of a high current flowing from the good battery to the bad battery with a faulty cell causing it to short; this situation could be dangerous, with a risk of a fire or explosion. One of our most popular boat batteries is the LV31MF ApolloPower leisure battery.

Hi I would like to introduce myself. Working in the Garage and tyre and Battery business now for 40 years. So. Working for a couple of national tyre companies before starting my first business. Of course, I now own a company here in the UK called Pellon Tyre and Auto-centre. Blogging about anything to do with cars and their related products. Naturally, that will help my business.

Car Repair Garages-This is the way forward for car repair garages? ChipsAway in Abingdon puts customers first.

Car Repair Garages
Smart receptions in the car repair garages like this should be the norm in 2013

For the car repair garages to survive they must have modern facilities for their customers.Car Repair Garages

Of course, this is a point I have been making for the past twenty years at least. American tyre repair companies were the first to supply their customers with a reception. Including a decent waiting room. Firstly. this idea was replicated by Scottish entrepreneur Tom Farmer. When he visited American Auto centres. So, on his return home decided that this was the way forward. Implementing the new style reception areas into his early Kwik-fit empire.

Successfully, other Car Repair Garages and tyre centres all over the UK began to copy his style of operation. But many of the Auto Repair Services and car repair garages were too small . Subsequently, half of them were just back street dirty places. As a business model . These smaller operations would not have warranted money spending on them.

Generally though things began to improve

Altogether though it was a huge improvement and many tyre depots and Car Repair Garages where brought into the twentieth century and were fit for motorists to sit in while their car was been repaired, or their tyres were been fitted.

As time went on more and more ladies were taking up driving and the move to step up the facilities in the car repair garages was imminent. The customers wanted a better experience when visiting the garage or tyre depot for work doing on their cars. The main dealer garages started to introduce courtesy cars, to loan to their customers while work was been carried out on their cars, a good idea!

The courtesy car idea became a little tarnished when some of the garages started to charge for their use, or for insurance. I thought this was a negative affect and was not in the spirit of the idea. We at Pellon Tyres and Autocentre in Halifax UK provide courtesy cars for our customers, mainly because we are about two miles out of the town centre, and it allows our customers to go shopping or to work, while their car is been repaired.

Coffee machines and TV sets were added to receptions

Many of the switched on Car Service Garages offer their clients  a free coffee machine in their reception. As well as a TV and up-to-date magazines for their entertainment. While they are waiting for a Car Repairs or an MOT or a tyre fitting. In my opinion this is what today’s modern consumer wants, this coupled with the fact that as I have said earlier, many of our customers are now ladies and they do not want to turn up to a dirty old Car repair garages in their nice clean clothes.

So this standard is the way forward and any garage or tyre fitting station that does not have customer facilities will fall behind and eventually perish.

A smart reception like this one will be important for the car repair garages survival in the future

Toyota‘s vision for the future Drive

Toyota’s Smart House uses solar panels and Batteries charged for all electricity, and the system can also power any plug-in hybrid and electric cars belonging to the occupants.

 

Eric Roberts‘s insight:

Solar panels Batteries charged this cars batteries

This is a very good and in depth article by Matt Campbell. Hence, this article is about Toyota,s new vision. So of a totally green Batteries charged car. Of course, the car (if you could call it that) is operated by twin electric motors.

Batteries charged

Hydrogen cells are also becoming popular to some car makers. Especially Toyota in Japan . For this reason, Toyota are already in a well advanced stage. So in the race for the end to the gas guzzling cars. Thus, reducing greenhouse gases.

Thus , connected up to a Lithium Ion Battery Pack .Enabling , the car to do 45 k/hr. With a range of about 50 kilometers. This  little car has special suspension .Of course, that allows it to sort of tilt, as you can see in the picture. Thus, is expected to be used in busy cities and towns. Consequently, the car will be known as the i-Road. Subsequently, will also be able to be plugged in and charged at any charging station. Of course, as well as at home.Batteries charged

The future of the Lithium-Ion battery is becoming more certain.Hence, regarding the batteries. Including when they have finished their end of life as a New Car Battery. Although the old replaced battery may not be suitable for a car.

Batteries charged

Then, scientists are thinking of using disused batteries for solar energy Battery storage purposes.To be charged and used as storage. The world will be crying out for some solution to solar energy storage. Of course, the old Lithium-Ion batteries could well be the answer. To the disposal problem.

As a result of demand. Other power saving technologies are been invented in Universities . All over the world. Hence, to reduce emissions and greenhouse gases. Including the Start-Stop Batteries that are now getting more popular with car manufacturers.

Keep Your Car in Top Condition

Cars and Climate Change-Are we Being Led Down the Garden Path with Climate Change ?

Cars and Climate Change

Cars and Climate Change

Will this be next for Londoners ?

Cars and Climate Change

So I must declare that I have a self interest in this what I call the “road to electrification con”. Firstly, we all could see what a bunch of MP’s can do or most importantly can not do. So do we trust this bunch of self interested political class to run the country ! Especially after the recent yet to be resolved “Brexit Debacle” . In my opinion these people are just self interested hypocrites ! Incapable of certainly running my life and I think millions of other !

So, after my little rant, then my main concern is about climate change,( or so called climate change ). The government is being driven by a minority of so called “climate change protesters”. Seemingly without any concern for the millions of people and businesses that have a long time been connected to the motor industry. Consequently, as we now now it . Of course we do not have a say it the matter ! Personally, like millions of other people, I dont believe in “climate change”.

Climate change has always occurred through natural events. My belief is that we are all going to be punished at the hands of a minority of protesters. Importantly, our delusional MP’s are getting sucked into this false news . I am an avid listener to LBC and one of the contributors comments inspired me to write this post. I actually agreed with his views.

No one questions the protesters rhetoric

It makes my blood boil to hear these people spout out about the planet coming to an end in the next twenty years. Also the fact that we are losing  thousands of species of animals . These people should be drilled down and share the true facts. Our MP’s just seam to be sucking all this false news up. many of us are old enough to remember days that when there was real air pollution ! Our Northern towns and buildings are still coloured black due to the dirty air and filth that we had to breath as children of the sixties and seventies.

So, where were the thousands of dying animal species then ? The truth is there wasn’t any and we just got on with life. Things did get better with new clean air laws that were passed by a generation of more sensible statesman like MP’s. Clean air was taken seriously and in my opinion was very successful . With the exception of London, I think we must all agree that we do breath in much cleaner air. My own house is now 35 years old and built out of the same Yorkshire stone as many of our old town and city buildings. The difference being is that my house is as clean as it was when first built ! No dirty air where we live.

London is going to penalize us all !

There is no doubt in my mind that we are all going to be penalized by the mass immigration and failed infrastructure in London. In fact I like many others are sick and tired of listening to the way that the problem is being looked at. As a outsider (thank God) all I hear is of banning cars from this and that ? All i can see is that it is a way of taxing the London motorists ! Nothing more, nothing less. So, if London was so dirty then why not just ban cars from the central area ! Surely this would clean up the so called polluted air !

Like millions of others I do believe the climate is changing but only because change happens. The planet is well overdue for a major volcanic eruption. So, just lets see what the “climate change brigade” has to say about that !

Millions of trees

So, as a keen naturalist and gardener I just wonder how many trees we have planted since gardening became popular in the sixties. I recon it must be in the millions. Also why have the big cities and towns allowed people to concrete over their gardens. Surely, this was a another big mistake. The protesters are only now telling us  we must plant more trees “But we did !

Driving around the UK (as I do), you cant help notice what a green and pleasant land we live in. Millions will agree that we as keen gardeners have made our country a clean and healthy country to live in ! How far do these people want us to go. Surely there must be limits on how they want to penalize us all ? Especially those of us who live outside the dreaded London area.

However, my main concern is that of the advent of the “electric car”. Cars and Climate Change

Car manufacturers have now proven that most of our diesel and petrol cars are now very clean indeed. Electric cars are charged with “dirty” electricity from dirty power stations. So, whats the difference ! My main concern is the effect that this will have on the millions of people now employed in the “motor industry” as we now now it. So, the coal industry springs to mind ! I must admit that the decimation of the coal industry did clean things up. Especially, here in the North.

Millions of jobs were lost in the coal industry. Most of the citizens of London probably dont know anything about fear and anxiety that was thrust across the whole of the North and Wales. Now it looks like we are going to suffer again just to improve the lifes of Londoners. We already have the technology for clean cars with low emissions. How much more do we have to suffer at the hands a few thousand climate change protesters. Its pathetic how the government gives in to them.

Cars and Climate Change

India is one of the places that the Climate change protesters should be heading for ?

Charging mounted police

What a vastly different world we live in today. many of us will remember the “horse mounted police” charging at the coal miners who were only fighting for their jobs ! Compared with today when “climate change protesters! held a the city of London to ransom while police officers did a dance with them! Just shows how week the people who represent us really are. Now they threaten more action at Heathrow airport ! They should be locked away along with their fake climate change propaganda.

I do believe that electric cars will be  a mix of automotive technologies, but at what cost ! How far does our tiny island have to suffer just so the “political class” can try and gain “browny points” at their World summits. How much do the people have to suffer when we get these silly ideas rammed down out throats. I believe that most of us dont want electric cars ! But have we been asked about it ! NO.

Its the developing countries that need to be targeted India and China would be just a start. In my opinion enough is enough. personally I am one of the millions who have now reached seventy years old. Because we live in a clean and healthy country. Except poor old London of course ?

Finally, I wonder what our fine  government has got in line for us.

Significantly, when they can no longer rely on the trillions of tax revenue. Of course, the fuel tax they will lose due to the electrification of cars being forced on us ? My opinion is that we will all have a little black box fitted to our cars and taxed on the mileage that we do. Of course it wont bother the green warriors ! Because, they will all be riding horses.

Also what are the oil producing countries going to do. In my opinion they will slash the price of oil to the west. Making electrification of our cars look even more expensive. Money talks. Just ask Donald Trump ! He does not want to penalize the American people by implementing punishing “green laws” realising that everything has a price. Punitive emission targets are a folly and the government should be prevented from penalizing the British. We are already achieving high standards for such a small country and enough is enough.
