Volvo Diesel D24T drag race at GIR midnight madness
Racing a worthless Neon, but there was so much torque off the line I was burning the tires off! I had a 3.3 second 60' time! I was running him down on the top end up I had to let up to get it to stop spinning at first. Time was a crappy 18.9@80mph

Second pass, racing an obviously much fasterMustang. This time I tried building
some Boost but the lights dropped
before I was ready, and only managed about 3lbs off the line. Its a big
turd off the line but at least it wasn't spinning its ass off. Time was
improved, 17.2@83mph. Still slow though. It really needs the manual

Crash Testing the 2013 Volvo XC60! - The Downshift Episode 51
We visit Ruckersville, VA and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's
Vehicle Research Center. IIHS is crash testing the 2013 Volvo XC60 in one
of their newest tests - the small overlap front test. On this episode of
The Downshift, learn why this kind of front overlap impact has such a
reputation for killing cars and their passengers, and find out if the Volvo
XC60 passes the test.
The Downshift appears every other Tuesday on the new Motor Trend channel.

CRASHES 2013 Volvo FH
The driver of a new Volvo FH would emerge from an 80 km/h collision without
any serious injuries. And if the truck rolled over, there is an emergency
exit at hand. But not only the driver's safety has improved.
Thousands of simulated collision tests and about 100 real crash tests have
allowed Volvo Trucks' engineers to develop a safer truck cab. For instance,
high-strength materials such as dual-phase steel have been used in
collision-absorbing beams and in the doors. The cab too uses the strongest
steel available today for body panelling -- ultra-high-strength, thermoset,
press-moulded boron steel.
Volvo 245GL D24T Drive around
I managed to wake up while there was still sunlight out, so I figured I'd
finally get a video of my current project: A 1983 Volvo 245GL wagon powered
by a D24 diesel VW engine with a homemade turbo kit.
Yes, thats a hood-stack.

Common Rail Diesel Injection video detailing the specifics of the system as
a whole, including diesel pump, pressures, and type of injection pattern.
Common rail Diesel fuel injection is now the state of the art in engine
injection. The Bosch Piezoelectric (crystal) injector operates using a
crystal stack, usually Quartz, that changes size when energized. The
piezoelectric effect states that when a crystal such a Quarts is squeezed
an electric current is generated. By the same token, when electricity is
applied to the crystal is changes shape. This minute change in crystal size
is used to trigger a small fuel chamber on and off. In turn, this chamber
creates a pressure differential at the top of the injector which make it
open and close. See further information here.
