The McLaren P1 Test. On Road and Track - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
Chris Harris drives the new $1.2 million McLaren P1 at the Yas Marina Grand
Prix circuit in Abu Dhabi UAE. Before taking to the track at night, Chris
Harris chats with Chris Goodwin, the Chief Test Driver for McLaren
Automotive to discuss the technology of McLaren's latest offering, perhaps
the definition of the modern day hypercar.
Fair warning, the McLaren Chris Harris drives in this video is the XP7, the
pre-production prototype for P1. The car has had a long life over the past
15 months, driving around the world and clocking over 40,000 hard miles.

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.

RE Amemiya Super Greddy 7 RE20B RX-7 FD3S
This RE Amemiya Super Greddy 7 RE20B was built for the annual Tokyo Auto
Salon. This exquisite machine is packed with RE Amemiya's tuning knowledge
and is setup for the street.
The intent of the vehicle is of course, running the Wangan highway. The
machine was designed to easily reach high speeds and provide unmatched
stability at 300km/h. This makes 300km/h seem like leisurely cruise.
The three rotor 20B engine was removed from a Mazda Cosmo. It is fairly
easy for RE Amemiya to build a 300km/h engine, and it can be done with a
13B. Then why choose a 20B? The 13B is notoriously known to have a short
life span, especially after it has been modified. Also, it lacks the low
end torque, and it does not hold the power to leisurely reach, and cruise
at 300km/h like the 20B.
Therefore, the 20B was chosen, and the low end torque demise was solved.
But even though it's a rotary engine, doesn't mean that it is a easy swap.
The weight distribution of the well balanced FD becomes thrown off. The 20B
had to be offset 10cm to the rear and 6cm to the front in reference to the
13B. Also, the body, subframe, and the propeller shaft all need
The exterior was dressed up with the RE Amemiya 2006 model Aero kit. It
consists of a Porsche 997 front headlights, and the rotary themed rear
bumper. The sides consist of super wide fenders to accentuate the whole
The vehicle was completed just in time for the first ever Pre Tokyo Auto
Salon event held in the United States. The vehicle then will be shipped off
in time for the real 2006 Tokyo Auto Salon event in Tokyo.

Super car driver idiots [NO pics, only videos]
I got bored with all the "super car crashes"-videos here on YouTube that
only contained PICTURES, CRAPPY MUSIC or/and clips of pure racing cars on
official racing events.
This compilation DOES NOT include pure racing cars on official racing
events - only real life FAILures on the STREETS, made by people with more
money than driving skills...
(Though, even the best car drivers can crash too of course.)
Notice 1: The "Dodge Ram" may not be a super car, but still it's a SRT10
with the 8.3L Viper V10 which produces 510hp. Pretty super for a pick up,
don't you think? It has more power than several of the cars in this video.
The intention with this video was to show that skills doesn't come with
Notice 2: Tire is the preferred spelling in the U.S. and Canada. Tyre is
preferred in most varieties of English outside North America. And I'm from
Sweden. So please think outside your box (country), you who claims "tyre"
is incorrect spelling.
