It is because cars contribute to almost more than one - third of air pollution. These made the car, in spite of its usefulness, a health and nature hazard. Now, steps are being made to find ways in order to make the cars more eco - friendly. These steps resulted to the revival of the concept of electric cars. Electric cars are not new.
Comparing NASCAR Nationwide Series and Sprint Cup Series Cars Paul Bazan ENG121: English Composition I Instructor: Cortney Philip June 11, 2012 Comparing NASCAR Nationwide Series and Sprint Cup Series Cars Watching NASCAR racing can be confusing for a person that just started watching the sport. There are three main series or classes that are raced: Sprint Cup Series, Nationwide Series, and Camping World Truck Series. This essay will focus on the Nationwide Series and Sprint Cup Series cars. To the untrained eye, these different classes look and drive the same. This essay will show that the engine, body and aerodynamics packages, fuel delivery systems, cockpit, and weight are some differences between the two classes.
In this paper I will discuss some of the common misconceptions about our great American vehicles including longevity, gas mileage, and purchase price. I will also discuss supporting the American auto worker. One of the most common misconceptions brought forward by many new car buyers is that all the import vehicles seem to last longer. I will prove that this is not always the case. There was a story in the car and driver magazine in 2008 about this so called million mile Chevrolet, after some research and a little help from a friend I found this story in an old Wisconsin newspaper.
The reason the Ford wins over the Chevy is due to three things: the tires, turning radius, and length and width. The Ford F-150 comes with all season, off-road Michelin tires whereas Chevy does not specify what type of tire comes standard on the Silverado. Michelin is a very good tire brand and if the Chevy would have these, they would specify otherwise. The Silverado has almost a half a foot wider turning radius then that of the Ford F-150. This makes the Ford easier to turn.
The Stampede Electric vs. Nitro RC Monster Truck By: Jeremy Mitchell Course: ENG 121 English Composition I Instructor: Jay Lorenz Date: 04/16/12 The Stampede Electric vs. Nitro RC Monster Trucks The new hobby of “RC Cars” or “Remote Controlled Cars” They ask “what is better gas or electric. The only way they will ever know how to make a decision is to weigh the pros and cons of any choice on paper. The Stampede Electric RC Monster Truck vs. The Nitro RC Monster Truck. The Traxxas Electric Stampede #3605 Electric driven Monster Truck costs $219.99 +tax for a total of $235.39.
Research shows that starting at age sixty-five, elderly drivers are more likely to be involved in deadly, multicar accidents. Although seniors understandably value the independence that comes with having a driver’s license, some people should not be behind the wheel. Should one license last forever, or should elderly drivers be required to undergo periodic reevaluation?” We want to decrease in deadly car accidents, so we should start these evaluations, because there might be many elderly who still have the capabilities to drive but there’re many who aren’t capable. About a month ago I tuned in a local news channel and they were talking about a deadly car accident, two survived but 2 others died and one of the drivers was a 63 year old man, who
I also think the technology exists to boost up the miles per gallon (mpg) a car can have. I believe this because if we have the technology to clone animals and reproduce children without mothers, than we should have the technology to boost our cars mpg. The benefit of a car with a higher mpg will in turn produce a lower carbon emission rating, which means cleaner air with less carbon dioxide. Driving a car is the most common air polluting act a human commits. They commit this on a daily basis with little knowledge of it.
Gases are non-renewable source of energy and therefore after several decades of the evolution of cars, the world is suffering from depletion. During some time in the early years of the twentieth century, hybrid cars were introduced by Baker of Cleveland and Woods of Chicago. (http://www.hybridcars.com/history/history-of-hybrid-vehicles.html) However, this great invention was soon challenged by the gasoline-powered cars in the sense of noise, weight and vibration. Full hybrid cars are vehicles which were made such as it can run on just engines, or on the batteries, or even better on a combination of both. This is because each hybrid cars contains two motors which also are its strengths and weaknesses.
Founded in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, during the first decade of the 20th century, it was one of two major American manufacturers to survive the Great Depression. Harley-Davidson also survived a media-accelerated negative image of motorcyclists, a period of poor quality control, and competition with Japanese manufacturers, Honda in particular. In 1903, their first year, the company's entire output was only 1 motorbike; however, by 1910, the company had sold 3,200. Movies such as Easy Rider made Harleys a cultural icon and soon the company attracted people who loved its bad-boy mystique, powerfulness, rumbling voice, distinctive roar, and toughness. It sounded like nothing else on the road, and even Elvis Presley longed to ride one.
What are the safety concerns about seat belts/ air bags/ brakes? I have included the fundamentals of a car that would be created in the time of 2009-2010, and compare with past car designs probably from the year 1996 to 2005. I have compared traffic rules from other countries with Bangladesh, which also may be the cause of car crashes but it does not hold relevance to the safety issues that I have mentioned but it is included for further knowledge. Many mechanics and engineers have stated that safety measures in certain new models of the cars are 100% effective. This is something we can debate over but I have also included the thoughts of people towards that statement, whether they agree with it or not.
