Awesome V12 Monster diesel engine Awake and Alive startup
The first V-type engine (a 2-cylinder vee twin) was built in 1889 by
Daimler, to a design by Wilhelm Maybach. By 1903 V8 engines were being
produced for motor boat racing by the Société Antoinette to designs by
Léon Levavasseur, building on experience gained with in-line four-cylinder
engines. In 1904, the Putney Motor Works completed a new V12 marine racing
engine -- the first V12 engine produced for any purpose. Known as the
'Craig-Dörwald' engine after Putney's founding partners, the engine
mounted pairs of L-head cylinders at a 90 degree included angle on an
aluminium crankcase, using the same cylinder pairs that powered the
company's standard 2-cylinder car. A single camshaft mounted in the central
vee operated the valves directly. As in many marine engines, the camshaft
could be slid longitudinally to engage a second set of cams, giving valve
timing that reversed the engine's rotation to achieve astern propulsion.
"Starting is by pumping a charge into each cylinder and switching on the
trembler coils. A sliding camshaft gave direct reversing. The camshaft has
fluted webs and main bearings in graduated thickness from the largest at
the flywheel end." Displacing 1,119.9 cuin (18,352 cc) (bore and stroke
of 4.875" x 5" (123.8 x 127 mm)), the engine weighed 950 pounds (430 kg)
and developed 150 bhp (110 kW). Little is known of the engine's
achievements in the 40-foot hull for which it was intended, while a scheme
to use the engine to power heavy freight vehicles never came to
fruition. One V12 Dörwald marine engine was found still running in a
Hong Kong junk in the late-1960s.
Two more V12s appeared in the 1909-10 motor boat racing season. The Lamb
Boat & Engine Company of Clinton, Iowa built a 1,558.6 cuin (25,541 cc
(5.25" x 6" (133.4 x 152.4 mm)) engine for the company's 32-foot Lamb IV.
It weighed in at 2,114 pounds (959 kg). No weight is known for the massive
3,463.6 cuin (56,758 cc) (7" x 7.5" (177.8 x 190.5 mm)) F-head engine built
by the Orleans Motor Company. Output is quoted as "nearly 400 bhp (300
By 1914, when Panhard built two 2,356.2 cuin (38,611 cc) (5" x 10" (127 x
254 mm)) engines with four-valve cylinder heads the V12 was well
established in motor boat racing.
In automobiles, V12 engines have not been common due to their complexity
and cost. They are used almost exclusively in expensive sports and luxury
cars because of their power, smoother operation and distinctive sound.

Civic Si K24 Supercharged Serial Killer by Rev It Up
Olá. Mais um projeto, mais um vídeo. Desta vez a união do naturalmente
vitaminado K24 com o sopro constante do Rotrex entregam vida ao Serial
Killer. Assim como um assasino em série, ele demonstra modos urbanos
normais, no entanto esconde um instinto extremamente agressivo que é
acessado com um simples descuido no acelerador.
O carro está em fase de desenvolvimento por se tratar de um projeto 100%
novo dentro da RIU e contará com outros vídeos, incluindo um de
velocidade final (que é alcançada com muita facilidade). Pretendemos
desenvolver muito todas as características desse projeto para alcançar o
limite dos aspectos que buscamos: Segurança, desempenho e principalmente
prazer de direção.
Mais uma vez, obrigado por gastar seu tempo aqui assistindo o que

0-60 mph Test Drive | 2014 Honda Civic Si with HPT on Everyman Driver
http://www.everymandriver.com/ - 0-60 mph test, 2014 @Honda Civic Si with
HPT @EverymanDriver @IMDaveErickson
For 2014, the Honda Civic sees a number of significant changes. Coupes get
restyled front and rear ends, while all Civics see slightly upgraded
interiors. All but the natural gas and hybrid versions get slightly more
powerful engines, and the previous five-speed automatic transmission has
been replaced by a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The LX coupes
and the Si trims gain firmer suspension tuning, and the hybrid has slightly
better fuel economy this year. Finally, a few new upscale features debut,
including keyless ignition, a larger touchscreen display, enhanced
smartphone integration and a blind spot camera.
Keeping the Civic at the top of its game is a perennial priority at Honda.
After hearing from reviewers and consumers that its redesigned 2012 Civic
lagged behind other small sedan rivals in interior quality, features and
cabin noise isolation, the company swiftly broke out its tool kit for a
repair job. In a rare move for an automaker, Honda updated the Civic just
one year later to fix these very issues. Now for 2014, Honda has kept its
foot on the gas to ensure the Civic sedan and coupe stay as desirable as
possible for car shoppers.
Starting things off for the 2014 Honda Civic is a revised 1.8-liter
four-cylinder engine and a new, more efficient CVT that replaces the
five-speed automatic transmission in most models. The resulting combo
promises even better fuel economy, and indeed, with a 35 mpg combined EPA
estimate (for the HF model), the Civic is one of the most efficient
non-hybrid small cars you can buy. New upscale features are also part of
the 2014 plan as you can now get keyless ignition and entry, a 7-inch
touchscreen interface with enhanced smartphone integration and a blind-spot
camera display. Honda hasn't forgotten about those who enjoy driving,
either: The LX coupe and Si coupe/sedan models receive firmer suspension
calibrations to provide more responsive handling. Additionally, Honda says
that the new CVT provides slightly quicker acceleration to go along with
the increased fuel mileage.
Meanwhile, all the previous perks on this compact Honda remain, as the
Civic continues to offer roomy seating, impressive crash test scores and a
generous standard features list that, even on entry-level trims, includes
Bluetooth, a rearview camera, an iPod interface and Pandora functionality.
It's also quite easy to find a Civic you like given the availability of
sedan and coupe body styles and the mix of trims that ranges from the
green-oriented Hybrid and Natural Gas models to the sporty Si.
