Fast Cars and Sports Cars

by Luck’Tam Fast Cars and Sports Cars Sports cars are automobiles that have the ability to generate high top speeds. They are generally light weight with a low center of gravity and possess powerful engines to propel them to high speeds. Aesthetics have formed an important aspect of modern sports cars as they are known for their sleek design. Rear-wheel drives are designed for more precise handling, an important need of these vehicles. However, there are other layouts available as well. Race cars are types of sports car but they are not an all inclusive type for example Lamborghini does not build racing cars and solely produces sports car for the consumer. The history of sports car traces its roots to the early 20th century where touring cars were used in early rallys such as the Monte Carlo. The 3 liter 1910 Vauxhall 20 hp (15KW) and 27/80 PS Austro-Daimler, designed by Porsche, can be regarded as the first true sports cars, even though they were not called that. Austin with the ‘Seven’ and Morris Garages (MG) with the ‘Midget’ were two of the first companies to offer reliable sports cars. Sports cars need to have precise handling and different layouts are employed to ensure that. The layout of having a rear-wheel drive with the engine at the front has survived in sports cars.

In the RMR layout the motor is located in the center in the chassis behind the driver....

What Makes Minn Kota Trolling Motors Superior

by Garret Voight What Makes Minn Kota Trolling Motors Superior I’ve been around the fishing world for a while… over 20 years, to be more specific.   During that time I have learned a thing or two about fishing and boating equipment. I have also developed some preferences and opinions about that equipment. Some stuff is good and well worth the money spent, and some is just plain crap and not worth the money spent to package it.   This holds true when it comes to electric trolling motors. There are good quality models and there are bad models. There are also big differences between the popular brands of trolling motors. Let me explain.   There are really only a few trolling motor manufacturers in the entire industry. Regardless of what label you see on a trolling motor, it’s made by one of those few manufacturers.   If you have looked for some information, you’ll see that Motorguide Trolling Motors and Minn Kota Trolling Motors are the leaders in the industry when it comes too brand recognition and popularity.   Base on my past experiences on the water, I prefer Minn Kota Trolling Motors and, in my opinion, they’re a much better motor. Here’s why.   Durability – This is one of my favorite parts of the new Minn Kota motors. These motors last, and for a very long time. Under normal conditions, you can use these motors far longer than expected. Even under extreme conditions, they last longer than other motors I’ve used!   Design – Minn Kota has spent a lot of money over the past decade,...
