  • Reverse engineering fine-tunes NASCAR engine
    changes are reserved for the engine. For teams such as Richard Childress Racing -- home of Winston Cup drivers Kevin Harvick and Robby Gordon -- the challenge is to squeeze the most horsepower and torque possible out of an SB2 General Motors engine and stay within NASCAR rules. One of the newest tools
  • Reliable Precision For The Most Well-Hidden Corners
    Regardless of their design sophistication, it is sometimes impossible to avoid creating hard-to-reach points on workpieces. In die construction, deep cavities are the order of the day. In mechanical engineering, slim ribs have to be milled on the workpiece or precise contours or fine holes have
  • Century Limited 2000
    In the near future, traditional cars will be outsold by trendy SUVs (superfluous utility vehicles), if they aren't already. That's a shame. Fine automobiles such as the Buick Century 2000 get pushed aside because what they offer now seems out of style: good mileage and maneuverability, low cost
  • Brushless DC Motors
    . Trapezoidal-powered motors develop about 10% more torque than those on sine-wave power. Sinusoidal-powered motors, however, exhibit less torque ripple and operate smoother at low speed. Thus, sinusoidal-powered motors are often used for machining, grinding, coating, and other operations calling for fine surface
  • Stator Stakes Claim to Top Powder-Metal Prize
    consumption and the formation of exhaust gases, and improves engine performance, especially torque at low rpms. It has two splines, one for the timing-belt pulley and one for the VVT housing. The PM part is said to be substantially less expensive to make than its two-part predecessor despite the fact
  • F-150 Pickup Gets a New Heart
    To complement the newly redesigned 2004 Ford F-150, a new three-valve-per-cylinder 5.4-liter V8 will beat under the hood. The powerplant delivers 300 hp at 5,000 rpm and 365 lb-ft of torque at 3,750 rpm. The aluminum head has two intake valves and one exhaust valve per cylinder, for a total of 24
  • 2003 Buick Park Avenue Ultra
    probably suits its target audience just fine. Inside, the car has everything most drivers would ever need. (And for $42K, maybe it should.) The Ultra's standard 3.8-liter V6 is supercharged and puts out 240 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque at 5,200 rpm, more than enough power for this full-sized sedan
  • 2007 Suzuki SX4
    taller and beefier than subcompacts such as the Honda Fit and Ford Focus. The SX4 is built on a steel 4X4 unibody for stability but fine-tuned in Europe for nimbleness and crisp, responsive handling. The rigid body sits on reinforced suspension mounts, front MacPherson struts, a torsion beam rear
