The race was held at California’s Willow Springs track. Toyota Sienna R-Tuned, equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine, drove a 2.7-kilometer distance in 1 minute 27 seconds. This is a second rate faster than the Camaro SS coupe, which is equipped with a 6.2-liter unit V8 engine with 426 horsepower.

On van mounted racing tires Nitto NT-01, Carbotech brakes, adjustable dampers with sports springs, lightweight battery, and a limited slip differential. In addition, Sienna R-Tuned has a system for supplying cold air to the intake manifold and exhaust system without catalytic Converter.

“We have studied the General dynamics of the machine and made some related changes to make it better able to slow down, to cope and to take turns with more speed. When we released the Sienna SE, we began to explore options for how to make the model sportier. The Sienna project R-Tuned has proven that we can significantly improve the capabilities of this family car,” said one engineer “Toyota” Thomas Lund.

American organization “NHTSA” has published official information about the new review of Honda Gold Wing motorcycles, which continue to emerge of problems with the rear brake. Up to this point has already had two recall campaigns motorcycles Gold Wing 2001-2010+ g/V. In September last year we wrote about the recall of 120,000 motorcycles, but now the list has expanded a bit.

Service campaign now applies to the first generation GL1800 Gold Wing 2001-2010, the current generation Gold Wing 2012-2015 and the Gold Wing F6B bagger. A total of 219 comments 145 motorcycles, which were sold in the USA. In December 2011, the Japanese manufacturer has recalled 126,000 motorcycles Gold Wing, and the second revocable campaign launched in August 2014, while Japanese engineers did not yet understand the causes of the defect. At the end of last year Honda continued to investigate the issue and in March 2015 verdict: a hole in the secondary master cylinder may be clogged brake fluid. Japanese engineers then proceeded to look for a solution, and 9 October, the producer was ready for a new revocable campaign. According to documents published by the NHTSA, the hole can become clogged brake fluid as a result of non-compliance with the maintenance schedule by mileage or time.

The Honda was sent to all motorcycle owners letters telling about the problem and the importance of taking service on schedule: every 12 000 miles or every two years.

Repair: inspection and replacement of the secondary master cylinder, rear master cylinder. Redesigned the secondary cylinder has in its design a new internal valve that should solve the problem.

Bugatti company launched to test its new sports car Chiron. Photospies managed to shoot the car during testing on the hearse of General use in Italy. In the pictures the model without camouflage. The novelty is positioned as a successor to the Veyron sports car. The public debut of the model will take place at the Geneva motor show, which will open in March 2015, reports World Car Fans.

The price of the car will start from 2.1 million euros. The car will release a limited edition of 500 copies. The novelty will be the only model in the line of the brand Bugatti as the Veyron off the line in 2015.

The sports car will be powered by a 8.0-liter W16 petrol engine. The motor will complement the four turbines, two of which are electric. Thanks to this power sparker will be 1500 horsepower. The engine will work together with seven-step transmission with double coupling.

At the request of the manufacturer, up to 100 km/h the model can accelerate for 2 seconds. Maximum speed is 450 kilometers per hour. Thus, Chiron will be the fastest production car in the world. The impressive indicators of power and the dynamics of the car will conform to the standards Euro-6.

Thursday, 5 November, the Verkhovna Rada should consider the draft laws relating to the activities of the national police. Only two of them: No. 3387 “On amendments to some legislative acts of Ukraine on activities of the National police” and No. 3225 “On amendments to some legislative acts of Ukraine in connection with adoption of Law of Ukraine”. Curiously, both of which amend a number of laws of Ukraine, which stipulates the activities of the Ministry of internal Affairs. Why the MPs did not prepare one General project of law – we can only guess.

If, in General, to characterize the changes, we can say that in most cases existing laws are payable banal technical replacement of the terms “militia” on “police”, “the internal Affairs bodies of Ukraine” to “National police”, “the relevant departments of MIA of Ukraine” with “the appropriate division of the National police,” etc.

This fully applies to the activities of the Ministry of internal Affairs in the field of road safety. So, project # 3225 among other things, provides for the replacement of the terms “units of the Ministry of internal Affairs of Ukraine, which provide traffic security” to “territorial bodies of the Ministry of internal Affairs” or “National police”, “police” with “police officers”. That is, all the features previously in the structure of the Ministry of internal Affairs complied with the traffic police, are going to delegate the Ministry of interior and the national police.

In particular, these bodies will continue to do: registration/re-registration of vehicles, to monitor the legality of the operation of vehicles on the roads, to ensure the smooth passage of dignitaries, to take the exams to obtain a driving licence, to monitor compliance by members of the movement of the SDA. Among other things, the police will be obliged: to inform drivers about traffic violations recorded in the automatic mode, monitor the observance by drivers of rules of Parking, and temporarily detain the car for the violation and deliver them to a shtrafploshchadka, and to suspend rights.

Not less important is the fact that the bill No. 3225 on the national police was assigned the function of ensuring road safety – that is, the fundamental task which were previously done by traffic police.

Will the Verkhovna Rada the draft laws mentioned above – will be known soon, and we’ll inform separately.

During the conference, for shareholders of Tesla Motors, CEO Elon Musk said that the function of the autopilot, released 14 October, will receive a number of restrictions. This is because some owners of electric Tesla ignore the warnings about safety and use this function at all without touching the steering wheel.

“There are some crazy videos on YouTube. And it’s bad. We will add some additional restrictions on where the Autopilot can be activated to minimize the chance to do crazy things,” said Musk.

Recall that after a couple of hours after the release of 7.0 update containing a new feature of the autopilot, the owners of electric Tesla started to upload YouTube videos in which they try to use this function in an urban setting. On these videos, many owners ignored the fact that the autopilot feature is in beta status and remove hands from the steering wheel while it is in operation is prohibited. Some Tesla owners even shave in the car and prepared their Breakfast of biscuits, smearing them with jam from the jar with a knife.
