J.F. Musial travels to the Team O'Neil Rally school to meet up with the
North Atlantic Audi Club for some winter driving training. There, he
learns the fundamentals of driving in slippery conditions with the new 2011

The Trans-Siberian Highway is the unofficial name for a network of federal
highways that span the width of Russia from the Baltic Sea of the Atlantic
Ocean to the Japan Sea of the Pacific Ocean. In the Asian Highway Network,
the route is known as AH6. It stretches over 11,000 kilometres (6,800 mi)
from St. Petersburg to Vladivostok. The road disputes the title of the
longest national highway in the world with the Trans-Canada Highway and
The most problematic stretch of the highway lay between Chita and
Khabarovsk. The first section of this route, linking Belogorsk to
Blagoveshchensk (124 km in length), was constructed by gulag inmates as
early as 1949. Extended and updated between 1998 and 2001, this road forms
part of the Asian route AH31 connecting Belogorsk to Dalian in China.
The Chita-Khabarovsk road remained largely unfinished up until early 2004,
when Russian President Vladimir Putin symbolically opened the Amur Highway,
with great swaths of forest separating major portions from one another. Jim
Oliver and Dennis O'Neil rode motorbikes across Russia, along the
Trans-Siberian Highway, during the last week of May and the first three
weeks of June in 2004:back then, as described in Jim Oliver's book, Lucille
and The XXX Road, the section between Chita and Khabarovsk was an extremely
challenging undertaking among marsh, gravel, rock, mud (vulnerable to the
rasputitsa seasons), sand, washboard, potholes, stream fording and detours
of the elusive highway with a noticeable absence of pavement. In the
following years the road, in some places was a modern paved highway with
painted reflective lane-lines, while in others a single lane meandering,
pockmarked, loose-gravel trail following the route of the early 20th
century Amur Cart Road. Completion of a 7-metre-wide highway between Chita
and Khabarovsk was slated for 2010: now the road is in very good condition,
completely upgraded and enlarged and with a smooth surface. Asphalt
paving of the highway is expected to continue until 2016
The extremely large nature of the project has spawned several legends. For
example, an inexplicable semicircle is said to exist somewhere that breaks
the straight line of a segment. The explanation would be that when Joseph
Stalin used a ruler to mark where the highway should pass the pencil jumped
over his finger and the engineers that were under threat to make the
segment exactly as commanded did not deviate from the drawing.
The same myth exists about the Moscow-Saint Petersburg Railway, which is
very straight but has a strange curve nicknamed "The Tsar's finger". The
myth about the road may come from the railway myth.

The Basic Parts of an Automatic Transmission (Part 1)
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
This is part one of my front wheel drive (FWD) automatic transmission
dissection video. In this video I cover the operation of clutches, bands,
accumulators, clutch drums, the oil pump, the valve body, valves, check
balls, seals and 'o' rings, as well as the construction and function of
many of the internal hard parts of an automatic transmission. To be honest
a rear wheel drive transmission isn't much different as many of the basic
components are the same. I guess what I'm saying is that you could use the
information in this video to have a basic understanding of a rear wheel
drive automatic transmission also. It is just a basic overview of the main
components. I don't get into theory and operation so much. Just the
general operation and identification of the parts. I may make more videos
on this topic based on the comments I get so feel free to ask questions and
perhaps I'll answer them in a future video on this topic. There will also
be a separate video on the parts and operation of the torque converter as
well. When that is posted I'll post links below to that video.
