How to pump 10 wheels using a “bucket”: BERKUT Spec-2M test
The ancient tradition of the auto mechanics league requires that you send an inexperienced “salag” for compression, handing him a bucket. However, a bearded joke can be adequately answered by…

Two in one: buy a Honda Civic VIII for 460 thousand (part 2)

Hard but breathing
The next car is an illustration of how neither the Civic nor any other car in the aftermarket should be. So, the most expensive instance for 480 thousand rubles, 1.8 liters, automatic transmission, 2010, the indicated mileage is 110 thousand km.
Unfortunately, I had to watch it in a real blizzard, but even under the snow it can be seen that the hood is uneven, and its color is slightly different from that of the rest of the body. And if you look closely at the rest of the body, then the color in general becomes incomprehensible: repainted the car completely, but not at a time, but by the elements. And they never got into color. Continue reading

Two in one: buy a Honda Civic VIII for 460 thousand (part 1)

Civic is the undisputed best seller. It was with the advent of this model that Honda was learned as a manufacturer of not only motorcycles, but also cars. Historically, Honda has been targeting the North American market, but the Civic has been selling pretty well all over the world. The release of the eighth generation Civic forced Toyota to postpone the release of the next Corolla – it took hastily to make changes to the design.

In 1948, Georgia made a variable compression motor and outperformed Infiniti

At that time, when the ICE power supply systems were imperfect, and the gas distribution mechanisms were primitive, the return per liter was small, and the consumption of gasoline and oil, related to the dynamic qualities of the car, did not fit into any modern ideas, a lot of engineering minds were struggling over the riddle of increasing ICE efficiency due to changes in compression ratio. This task is not easy, and its “conveyor” solution appeared only in our time, when the relevance of the topic has come to naught. As you know, Infiniti engineers have introduced an additional link between the crankshaft crank and the connecting rod, controlling which you can change the working volume. Continue reading
