Climb - Pikes Peak Hill Climb with a Monster
Ride on the bumper of a screaming 910hp, Twin-turbo, All-wheel Drive, 150 mph Suzuki SX4 as it
races up one of the world's most dangerous hills. An attempt by the
"Monster" to break his own record of 10:01:41...
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (June 29, 2010) -- For the fifth consecutive time,
Nobuhiro "Monster" Tajima combined experience, skill and Falken Tires to
claim overall victory in the 88th running of the Pikes Peak International
Although he did not set a new Pikes Peak record, one day before his 60th
birthday, Tajima continues to hold the current overall record for reaching
the peak, beating hill climb veterans Paul Dallenbach and Rhys Millen in
the Unlimited Class. He drove his new 910-hp Monster Sport Suzuki SX4 Hill
Climb Special on Falken WildPeak A/T tires, the powerful new line of
all-terrain, all-season tires Falken launched this past April.
Following Exhaustive tests in a
Japanese wind tunnel facility, Monster's 2010 Pikes Peak race car underwent
extensive aerodynamic changes to better adapt to the modified road surface
on the race to the clouds, which assumed a smoother tarmac and less gravel
than last year. Thinning air ascending the mountain robs most motors of
their power by 30 or more percent, but the increase in horsepower over last year's
race car helped push the driver forward.
Jaguar X Type 2.0 diesel DMF dual mass flywheel and other parts replacements
This is my very fist video with myself talking, so no offence is taken if
you turn down the volume! I apologise for the poor use of English, but I
hate recording myself and I hate listening to myself even more.
Basically I wanted to show you the parts that needed replacement after
65,000 miles to fix a number of issues on my 2004 Jag X Type. I bought
most of the parts myself and had the work done at the local Jaguar garage.
I reckon this saved me some 800 Euros.
The garage was not cheap but I figured that if something cropped up (which
indeed happened) they would have the replacement parts available and I
would not get stranded.
Repairs were for:
The Dual Mass Flywheel, replaced along with clutch, pressure plate and
concentric slave cylinder;
The crank sensor was found to be damaged and that also needed replacing;
Crank pulley, tensioner, belt, idler pulley, fitted with new bolts...
The car had some oil leaks, so I had the crank pulley seal, and an output
shaft seals replaced.
The front anti-roll bar bushes were also replaced once the car jacked up
and the underside exposed.
The car sounds and feels completely different. I can cruise at 60kph on
5th without any problem (used to have knocking and jerking before), idling
and starting is obviously much smoother.
Clutch & Flywheel - LUK
Pulley kit - Jaguar OEM from ebay
All others parts provided by Jaguar garage
All in all an expensive job but well worth it as I intend to keep the Jag
for a few more years.
