By the time the current 2.2-liter V6 twin-turbo regs expire at the end of the 2022 season, they will have served the NTT IndyCar Series for 11 seasons, with Chevrolet and Honda finding ever-smaller areas in which to improve and gain an edge. With displacement increasing to 2.4-liters, an increase in boost from the twinned BorgWarner turbos and the addition of a KERS hybrid unit, IndyCar is aiming to hit 900hp, and IndyCar president Jay Frye said recently that he expects the series to be “pushing” that figure – on road and street courses – soon into 2023. Buckner commented today: “Somewhat lost in the 2.4-liter transition is the fact that we’re going up in base boost as well. “It’s easy to think that we’re going up roughly 10 percent in displacement and so we’re going to go up 10 percent in power, but we’re also going to start operating at 1.6-bar as the standard for road and street courses from 1.5-bar. “And put all that together with the hybrid unit and I think fans … [Read more...] about Chevrolet: IndyCar fans will approve of hybrid power jump

This YouTuber says that while he's a Tesla fan, he's upset about all the issues with his Model Y. As you may remember, about a month ago, we covered a new YouTube channel called "Colorado Cars." It was about why you shouldn't tow with a Tesla Model Y (linked below). Essentially, the owner provided a laundry list of his issues with the car, which included its incredibly short range while towing. Now, he's reporting on concerns with the Model Y's flooding frunk, among many other issues. We should mention a few points here up front.

It doesn't have to do with regulations. As you would expect from an absolute EV flagship with a six-figure price tag, the Mercedes EQS is brimming with tech. From its powerful dual-motor AWD setup to the 56-inch Hyperscreen, the fullsize luxury sedan is worthy of its status as the S-Class of electric cars. That said, some would argue there's one glaring omission – side cameras. Daimler CEO Ola Källenius explained in an interview with Automotive News Europe why the R&D team behind the EQS decided to stick with good ol' side mirrors. Long story short, Mercedes was concerned that seeing what goes on behind the vehicle would've resulted in motion sickness. Not only that, but the electricity needed to power the cameras would've almost negated the aerodynamic benefits created after replacing the bulky mirrors with tiny cameras. Even with chunky side mirrors, the Mercedes EQS is still the most aerodynamic series production car ever built. With the 19-inch AMG wheels … [Read more...] about Mercedes Explains Why The 2022 EQS Still Has Traditional Mirrors
