Audi RS3 Sportback Snow Driving
http://www.eurocarnews.com - Audi AG - Delivering power to the road with
effortless ease, the quattro permanent all-wheel drive grants the RS 3
Sportback traction, dynamics, and stability. Its central component is an
electronically controlled multi-plate clutch, mounted at the end of the
propeller shaft to achieve a favorable axle load distribution. Located in
its interior is a plate package bathed in oil.
Thanks to quattro, the propulsive power can be distributed to each axle as
needed. Whenever slip occurs at one of the axles, an electric pump
intervenes at lightning speed to increase the oil pressure. The pump
presses the clutch plates together in a continuous fashion, thereby
permitting the torque to be redirected accordingly. Thanks to a powerful
accumulator, this process takes just a few milliseconds.
Audi Winter Tyres and Winter Driving
According to Department of Transport road accident statistics winter road
accidents in the UK increase by 267%.
In response, tyre manufacturers have developed specific winter tyres that
are designed to outperform regular tyres in cold weather, when the
temperature drops below 7°C. The unique tread pattern design and softer
rubber of a winter tyre means stopping distances are greatly reduced, while
grip and handling are much improved.
It's why Audi recommends fitting winter tyres this season.
