The 2019 Toyota Supra Will Get A Dual-Clutch Transmission: Report

  The 2019 Toyota Supra Will Get A Dual-Clutch Transmission: Report If you were hoping the upcoming revival of the Toyota Supra would get a manual transmission, you are just setting yourself up for disappointment. Either way, a new interview with Tetsuya Tada, Toyota’s Global Chief of Engineering, suggests the new Supra will get a dual-clutch transmission instead. The interview comes from Infoseek via the Supra Mk. V forum, and a rough Google translation reveals Toyota’s global chief of engineering mentioned that the Supra will be getting a DCT transmission, further diminishing all hope of a manual option. Here’s the translated quote:[Interviewer]: By the way, is MT prepared for the next SUPRA?Mr.

In a stroke of genius, Vlad from YouTube channel Garage 54 ENG decided to fill an old Russian Lada sedan with five tons of concrete. The result? Getting the manual-trans car to move at all under its own power with all that weight onboard was a real struggle that likely chewed the hell out of that clutch.

Garage 54 ENG is at it again, except this time, instead of filling a car’s tires with concrete, the host, Vlad, filled an entire vehicle with the stuff. Five tons of it, actually.

In the video, the host buys a Lada 1300 using what looks like Russia’s Craigslist-equivalent. Then he builds a barrier out of wood to keep liquid concrete away from the driver’s seat, and then the host proceeds to fill the car through the trunk and the rear driver’s side window.

It's Fine To Start Off In Second Gear Only Sometimes

  It's Fine To Start Off In Second Gear Only Sometimes You might have heard that first gear isn’t necessary when accelerating from a stop. You might have heard that you can start just fine in second. Well, it’s okay to do that, but only sometimes. Jason Fenske of Engineering Explained is here to tell us when and why. Taking off in second in an automatic transmission, for example, is just fine. This is because an automatic uses a fluid coupling, so you don’t have to worry about wearing anything down while spinning the torque converter. In a manual transmission, however, things are a little different.

After pouring five tons of concrete in and letting it to dry, Vlad tries driving off, but the car simply doesn’t budge. Instead, it just sits there, rolls a few inches in either direction, and produces smoke from underneath that the host initially mistakes for clutch.

He ultimately concludes that the smoke wasn’t coming from the clutch disc. Still, it wouldn’t have been surprising if it were, because the guy revs the crap out of the engine as he tries releasing the clutch to get the car moving and to avoid stalling. After towing the bottomed-out Lada with a G-Wagen to get the car’s tires out of a little low-spot in the road, the host actually manages to accelerate the vehicle from a stop, not just once, but a couple of times down his street.

Granted, it’s slow, the ride is horrendous, and it’s clear he has to burn up some clutch in the process, but hey, he does manage to get the car moving. And that seemed like the goal in this largely pointless, but still highly entertaining experiment.

Quebec Getting Public Hydrogen Filling .
Toyota is helping to bring hydrogen refueling to Quebec City. The filling station, unveiled today, will be the first hydrogen filling station in the province open to the public, and Toyota is calling it the largest hydrogen fuel demonstration project in Canada. The station will be owned by Harnois Groupe Pétrolier, which operates more than 400 gas stations in Quebec. It will offer electric charging, hydrogen filling, and gasoline.The hydrogen is going to be produced on-site, using clean power from Hydro-Québec to electrolyse water at the facility.
