Interesting useful attitude
Just waiting for you to pay attention to
Our last book when it comes (December 13): General models are front transverse engine, rear drive system in the process of power transfer to pioneer system in “turn two corner”, so people always run faster than you. Today small make up some luxury cars or the physical location is a high performance sports car engines and the reasons for this layout.
Large luxury cars, performance cars
Is like regular cars, large cars, performance cars in the most used a longitudinal engine rear wheel drive.
What is longitudinal-mounted engine?
As you face the car standing, sideways is relative to your engine is transverse mounted engine, the vertical nature is longitudinal-mounted engine.
PS: transverse, longitudinal-mounted engine was placed at the front of the engine.
Advantages and disadvantages of longitudinal-mounted engine
Longitudinal rear-drive class representatives: BMW
Longitudinal-mounted engine drove after this transmission of power, the first engine powered, after end of car engine crankshaft, gearbox transmits power drive shaft, then after passing underneath the drive shaft to the rear axle of the vehicle. Longitudinal crankshaft underneath and parallel to the drive shaft, this more direct power delivered to the propeller shaft.
Longitudinal-mounted engine has the advantage to be able to balance weight than before and after. To control and conquer the BMW, has been able to do has been done before and after the 50:50 of the perfect counterweight without elaborate engine, transmission, physical location, such as BMW’s designers put the engine’s Center of gravity to the front axle front axle moved forward as far as possible at the same time.
It is because the engine of vertical space is very long, so this engine car ride space will be reduced.
Longitudinal precursor class: Audi
When it comes to pioneer the longitudinal-mounted engine, you have to mention the Audi. Using a longitudinal-mounted engine more to take care of Quattro system, but configuration is unequivocal about it.
Engine and transmission, front axle like a fulcrum of balance,
Because if you drop a longitudinal-mounted engine ahead of the front axle, and gearbox will be attached to the engine nacelle size limit. If it is placed after the front axle, the crankshaft of the engine gearbox input shaft around the same axis of rotation. So in order to achieve the perfect counterweight, Audi engines and transmissions were placed in front of the front axle. Audi A4 front and rear weight ratio is 55:45.
Puzzle the fastest racing speed: engine
Engine is to launch in the driver’s seat, but before the vehicle rear axle, is mostly used in high-performance sports cars. Because “If you don’t control their weight wayward eat” out the front and the rear of the engine, in addition to achieving the perfect weight, when cornering, faster, more stable, more fluid.
“Potential”: the rear-mounted engine
Needless to say, rear-mounted engine means putting the engine in the rear. Precursor opposite arrangement of this place, except that it is mainly concentrated in weight at the rear, turning over for a corner at speed would appear obvious.
Early Porsche 911 ate this fall! But after its rear-drive combination is unique. But then with aluminum launch, aluminum suspension, multi-link suspension, Porsche 911 “this runaway horse” relatively reduced technical requirements for drivers!
There are a special type of engine layout is called a front-mounted engine, the engine placed behind the front axle, but its location is still ahead of the passenger compartment. For example, Mercedes-Benz SLR, Mazda RX-8 and classic Honda S2000.
It is said that in order to have a better performance, some designers came up with a front-engine, rear-mounted gearbox to the structure.
In this regard, the editor just wanted to say … Owner killed by Tesla why am I still can t see
No matter how you mix, how, I have no money!
