Alignments

Angles setting the wheels in alignment angles of the wheels are calculated theoretically in the development of the car and adjusted during developmental testing. Parameters setting angles are provided and controlled by assembly of the car. Thus, the car leaves the assembly line is fully prepared for high-speed maneuverable ride at a certain curb weight. Over time, the factory adjustment violated. This is due to normal wear and tear suspension assemblies and parts of steering control, accompanied by a change initial size and an increase in play in the joints.

Themselves normative values of the angles the wheels (uuk) as mandatory values do not exist. These standards nobody has ever installed. There are, of course, the parameters of the manufacturers on a new car, which he must comply with Departure pipeline. Sometimes it may be given options for the car in service. But it's a whole model, rather than a specific machine, given its actual path, and especially roads that bore his fate, my dear.

AND another, we judge the angles of the wheels on the basis of a static picture when the car is stationary. But who said that in motion, acceleration, braking and maneuvering the vehicle, it does not change? When adjusting Alignments, we change the following angles: Caster is the angle at which the rotation axis is tilted wheel. The main purpose of having the caster is to obtain a self-centering steering system. Caster angle affects understeer during runup, braking and acceleration, as it tilts the chassis more or less depending on the angle of the caster.

Windshields

I open the catalog of vehicles on one site and get lost in a huge number of proposals, vendors are fighting fiercely for customers by offering more and more new types of machines. But what is primarily for the buyer? Comfort and security! This is what builds the joy of the owner when purchasing a car. And of what constitutes safety and comfort? Every detail of the car brings its contribution to the cause. Here's an example of glass In the early 20 th century or a number of Paris newspapers do not get along without reports of bloody injuries which passengers horseless carriages, cut glass machine. Only to 1927 on the machines appeared safe laminated glass, but only the most expensive, only a few decades they have become the norm. Modern car manufacturers take responsibility for the safety of passengers and testing of glass in the enhanced mode, spending a lot of tests strength. And yet another glass protects against noise, ambient temperature, for this it is treated with special coatings. It's okay to withstand ice and fogging. Another function of the glass – to create a machine must be level of light load to save the driver from the sun and glare.
