About Off Road Modifications

Some people find the sport intimidating because they have an impression that it is expensive. Luckily, there are cheaper options such as aftermarket upgrades that are available in the market.

Here are some of the top modifications that can improve a vehicle’s off-roading capability:

Off-road tires are more expensive than your regular tires. The price of mud tires usually start at $100. This is the most basic upgrade that a budding off-roader can start with. These type of tires have deeper treads and offer excellent traction to withstand different off-roading conditions.

Cold air intakes and air filters are another must have when you go off-roading. It enhances a vehicle’s performance by improving its airflow. Some of the most popular brands are AFE, Volant and K&N.

Another popular upgrade is shock absorbers. High quality shocks are essential to help control the suspensions and to improve the ride quality and handling of a vehicle, on and off-road. Rancho and Bilstein are two of the most popular shock absorber brands in the market.

Lights are another must have. Visibility is one of the most important concerns of outdoor adventurers. Different types of off-road lights such as

Crossover SUV

Pro: Smaller Size For A More Efficient, Agile Ride

Crossovers are lighter and more agile than full sized SUVs, which means a more responsive driving experience as well as better efficiency and kms. Since it doesn’t have to be built for heavy duty towing or hauling capacity, they are able to cut down on weight and size. This fact also helps the crossover to be more stable, since it is lower to the ground and is thus much less likely to roll over during a wreck. Plus, the smaller size and lower stature of the vehicle makes it easier to fit in both your garage or a tight parking space in town.

Today’s drivers and economy require good kms and an efficient ride, and that is a major reason why the crossover has become so popular. In fact, many of them offer a sporty ride that you would expect from a sedan or a coupe.

Con: Less Power, Capability Than A Truck Or Full Sized SUV

On the other hand, motorists who need to haul or tow very heavy loads will find that a full sized SUV or truck works better for them. As

Tata Safari Storme

Powering the Safari Storme is the same old 2.2 litre, 4 cylinder VariCOR (remember the DiCORs of the older Safari? It’s the same thing) diesel engine that puts out 138 bhp and a torque figure of 32.6 kgm. Fuel economy is quite decent; this SUV returns around 10 kpl in the city and a little over 13 kpl on the highway. This engine has a linear power delivery and can pull the car quite nicely till the tachometer gets up to 4,500 RPM; although be warned that things do get rather loud once you’re past 3,500 RPM. The short throw gearbox feels true but it does require a little effort in operating it. If you have driven the previous Safari, one improvement that you will notice right away is the fact that the Storme feels a lot smoother and refined. And thanks to new sound deadening features, the passenger cabin is a lot quieter as well. Also adding to this feeling of refinement is the new wishbone suspension with coil springs at the front. A wider track at both ends does increase stability but not by all that much; go around twisty roads at speed and it feels

Ford Poised

Ford has asserted its plans to release its subcompact SUV Ecosport in more than 60 countries all over the world from just 10 in the current picture. The Escape renamed as Kuga outside North America is set to make its release to Chinese markets this year. The huge investment was said to be a major bet to incorporate Ford’s plan to propagate small SUVs multifold by Jim Farley, Executive Vice President-Global Sales & Marketing, and is relied upon to pay off well. Small SUVs have helped Ford to multiply their share in the market; especially traditionally toughest markets of coastal areas like California and catalyzed expansion in markets under development. CEO Alan Murray has pushed beasts like Explorer SUV on a diet to invite more customers looking for rough terrain performance, cargo space as well as fuel economy. With wealth being grown in Indian and Chinese markets, One Ford Plan has prospered very well and is expected to continue for coming years.

People around the globe have fallen amorous for these Small Utility Vehicles. The body style seems intriguing while the fact that people can sit above traffic and pack luggage as well as people in cozily,

Road Safety with Sport Vehicles

Most importantly, understand the limitations of your vehicle. SUVs perform much differently than smaller passenger cars, and are typically much larger and heavier. Given their increased size, more work is required from an SUV’s brakes and engine to brake and accelerate, as well as stay under control on the road. By braking quickly, you will put great stress on your brakes, causing them to wear extremely quickly. Over time, worn brakes will dramatically increase the distances required to come to a stop, and failures are a constant threat, introducing the potential for a rear end accident or breakdowns costing thousands of dollars to repair.

In the same way, quickly accelerating will put added stress on your engine, potentially leading breakdowns. Added weight also raises the center of gravity, making it more top heavy through turns. If taken too quickly, a turn can cause an SUV to roll onto its roof. By turning gradually, you will keep your wheels firmly planted on the ground.

The physical boundaries of your vehicle should also be understood, as an SUV may

Prestige Car Hire

Petrol and Diesel Will Run Out Fast

Most rentals allow a mileage of 100 miles per day, with additional miles available for a surcharge. That might seem like loads. But, depending on the make and model of the car that you choose, you’ll need to fill up before you reach the 100 mile mark. Plus, you’ll usually have to return the car with a full tank of fuel, so fill up only about a mile before you reach your location to make sure you don’t have to pay any surcharges.
Under 25? You’ll Have to Pay

Some companies let those that are under 25 drive premium cars. But it’s a select few – generally, the consensus is that the younger you are, the more risk and therefore the more likely it is that you’ll damage the car or get into an accident. As such, premiums for the day are usually extremely high for those under 25 and some companies will veto you altogether. If you’ve held a valid driving license and had no driving offences or tickets since you were old enough to drive, then you’re in with a better chance. But be prepared to pay

Fit Spacers for Rims

Tire life is increased

When the spacers are inserted between the wheel and the hub of the car, the overall fitting becomes tighter. This brings down the jerking and the feel of the ride is also enhanced. If the tires are of the larger variety and the spacers are absent, there is always the possibility of the tires to rub against the body parts. This can increase the wear and tear of the tires. Increase of friction is the primary cause for this. Fitting the spacers will reduce the friction element and the lives of the tires are increased. You will have to shell out lesser money on the tire replacements.

Increase the balance of your car

With the fixation of the spacers for rims, your car balance improves. As the wheels get spaced outwards, the distance between the right and the left wheels are increased on the shaft. The weight of the car gets a better balance with a shift in the equilibrium of the car. It gets improved further when a wider tire is used. As the surface area of the tires increase, the car weight gets distributed over a wider area. This

Trunk Mount Bike Rack

The primary benefit is that the overall charges will be very low and affordable. It doesn’t need any roof rack or hitch and it are considered as the ideal choice for occasional short journeys. Most of these racks are user-friendly, and can easily carry 2-4 bikes. They are easily affordable and stored. The trunk mount bike rack blends security and provides greater clearance over other spoilers. It is more convenient for using and storage purpose.

The molded rubber pads are provided to give a firm support and hold the vehicle along with proper protection from scratches. As it can hold more than one bike, it is very important to handle the contact between the bike and the bike along with that of car and bike. The anti-sway cages play an important role in handling such contacts and the bicycle arms provide ample spacing to avoid the contact damage. It cushions the bike along with maximum security.

The levers of the trunk mount bike rack allow adjusting the bicycle arms easily as well as independently. This feature is designed to support all types of bike frames.

This type of rack is also available with another important

Use Of Spacers In Wheels

Increase the bolt pattern

When the wheel spacer is fixed to the wheel hub of the car, the bolt pattern which exists presently will be modified. A good wheel adapter can easily change the patterns of bolts from a 4 bolt to a 6 bolt type. When the number of bolt increases that attachment of the wheel onto the spacer becomes firmer. The chances of wheels coming off are minimized. With the inclusion of spacer, you can use custom wheels on your car. With the increase in the number of bolts options, this becomes easier. The offset of the cart also is raised which aids you in better control of the car.

Get the right fit

With the independence of buying a tire after spacers are fitted, you can enhance the looks of your car with custom tire fitting. Purchase of the wheel spacer should be made with care. The wrong spacer can spell risk factors increase for you. Consult a person who has the technical knowledge of spacer and can guide you for purchasing the right product
