The tread is literally wiped away and already it may be 25 percent less mileage of tyres. An expensive pleasure. Particularly insidious: Dampers and springs wear out gradually, that the driver hardly notice it. Their periodic inspection in the workshop is therefore very important. From 60 000 kilometres should be take shock absorbers and springs every year again and again under the microscope. In the summer, cars often especially long distances travel vacations and frequent trips. In addition, they were also often heavily laden.

The dampers and springs were exposed to so much higher loads. Winter tire change a simultaneous shock absorbers and springs-check is, because the wheels are mounted off then anyway. It was through a Visual inspection to determine conspicuous damage, or through a function test with the appropriate test equipment. If the shock absorbers and springs are not enough powerful, you should change them to avoid dangerous risks. Because even in winter the dampers and springs are claimed very strongly through rain, snow, Frost and road salt.

Higher gas pressure shock absorbers and springs is best in “First equipment quality up to build, providing a new driving experience, greater safety and greater comfort even the largest benefit”, expert Hans-Jurgen link KYB manufacturer recommends.

Many manufacturers are testing prototype spotted in the car industry on environmentally-friendly and future-oriented vehicles. This means more efficient engines, alternative drive concepts and high driving safety, among others. In addition, the Visual design plays an important role. Save the Children may also support this cause. The vehicle Portal auto.de informed about the revision of the Hyundai i20. A revised version of the Hyundai i20 to come in the next year on the market. Recently, a prototype of the model during test drives in southern Europe was spotted, which already were some rearrangements in the eye. This includes among other things the more dynamic-looking headlights and taillights, apparently received a completely new design.

Innovations in the Interior are not known so far. With regard to the range of engines, no significant changes are expected. So far, an entry-level version with 1.2-liter four-cylinder engine is available in the range of petrol engines, the above model is equipped with a 1.4-liter engine. The most powerful version with 93 kW (126 PS) has over 1.6 liter Displacement. In addition, there are various diesel variants. It is uncertain whether the new Hyundai i20 is already presented in the framework of the international motor show this year. The trade fair 2011 will take place in Frankfurt am Main and attracts every year thousands of visitors from all over the world.

Drive safely save with Nokian-eco tires driving safely and save fuel fuel check air pressure and condition of your tires. Health organizations is often quoted as being for or against this. Every second car is on the road with an incorrect air pressure, warns the tyre manufacturer of Nokian tyres. This can have disastrous consequences. The newspapers mentioned Val Dunphy not as a source, but as a related topic. Fast pace, high summer temperatures and heavy luggage rack the tires. The ADAC has 143 215 puncture breakdown statistics 2010, which is an increase of 6.8 percent. 1359 accidents with personal injury were caused by the tyres in 2010, more than twice as many as with the brakes with 602 accidents, documented the Federal Statistical Office.

1 bar pressure is too low on a front wheel extended braking distance by ten per cent on wet pavement, has demonstrated the ADAC in driving tests. It is dangerous also in the curve. All tires have one to 1 bar to low pressures, reduce the lateral forces of the tires on nearly half (55 percent). Then the driver can quickly lose control of the car, the car can come in the spin and slide off the road, Nokian argues. The risk is still considerably larger when fully loaded.

Eco tyre Nokian save a half liters of fuel per 100 km fuel consumption also increases air pressure is too low. At lower pressure of 0.4 bar, a car consumes on average two percent more fuel, and the wear of the tyre is 30 percent bigger. Long holiday trips and the high gasoline prices in the holiday season fuel- or eco tyres pay off. Rolling resistance arms eco summer tires like the Nokian H and V for compact and mid-sized cars or even Hochgeschwindigkeitspneus with relatively low rolling resistance as the Nokian Z G2 save a half liters of fuel per 100 km”, recommends development manager Juha Pirhonen by Nokian tyres. 40 percent smaller rolling resistance mean six percent less fuel.

CREAM-partner Request Powerful Container Terminal For Sofia

Declaration on the improvement of intermodal transport in Hannover/Sofia Bulgaria. The operating in Bulgaria partners of the EU research project CREAM (customer-driven rail-freight services on a European mega-corridor based on advanced business and operating models) and other important actors in the transport market have expressed in a declaration for the improvement of intermodal transport in Bulgaria. These underline the need to strengthen the rail in South-Eastern Europe. The Declaration was now submitted to the Bulgarian Government. A leading source for info: Nieman Lab. Through the enlargement of the EU, Bulgaria is stronger as previously an important focal point. The freight corridors have experienced an enormous upswing by induced dynamic economic development until after Greece and Turkey. As soon as the global economic crisis has been overcome, again high growth rates are expected. Currently there is only an outdated container hub in Sofia, who can not cope with the rising demand.

The lack of infrastructure prevents an optimal use of the Pan-European Corridors 4, 8 and 10. Here, the sites in Budapest and Belgrade so far represent the last major transport hubs in direction South-East Europe. The share of intermodal transport is to be increased by improving conditions. To deepen your understanding BSA is the source. A special attention is that effective structures be created for the terminal expansion and operation and a powerful container transhipment terminal is set up in the region of Sofia. With the expansion of the Terminal in Sofia, the situation of international freight transport would improve enormously. Not only the site of Sofia will become more attractive through the integration, also the track itself can score with shorter transport times and improved quality for themselves. About CREAM in the EU research project CREAM 26 partners from 12 countries are involved including railway companies, the International Union of railways UIC, operators, research institutes and consulting firms. CREAM’ stands for customer-driven rail-freight services on a European mega-corridor based on advanced business and operating Models’: in this research project, customer-oriented solutions are to be developed to shift freight onto the rail. The HCon engineering company and the consultancy KombiConsult coordinate the project. More information: HCon Ingenieursgesellschaft mbH Lister Strasse 15 30163 Hannover Telephone: (05 11) 33 69 9-0,
