Enthusiasts New gear rules in the F1 2022: Component Pool As with the engine
Tested: 2022 Bugatti Chiron Super Sport Makes the Insane Seem Sane
This version of the Chiron will be the last, a 1578-hp parting shot before electric motors join in on the fun. What comes next will probably outperform our $4,301,450-as-tested Chiron, but there's something captivating about an unapologetic nonhybrid 16-cylinder engine with 64 valves and four turbos. There's no denying the next version will better answer the question of how to go really, really fast. But doing things the hard way—the old way, the slightly stupid way—is something we'll remember about both the Chiron Super Sport and testing on Avenue A.
in Formula 1 2022, there is a policy change that is allowed to provide a little relief, especially in urban races in the teams. So far, a transmission had to hold six races in a row. This rule is now tilted: Instead, there is a pool of components, as is the case with the drive unit.
Each driver now has to do with four gear units in a season over 22 or 23 races, say the new rules. Which transmission is used whenever is now the team.
gearbox now counts as a so-called RNCS - "Restricted Number Components". They consist of two elements: the gearbox housing and the cassette are a component, the powertrain, gears and other attachments fall into the second category. Each driver are available four of them.
Tested: 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit V-6 4x4 Ups Its Game
The lavish Summit Reserve shows how far the Grand Cherokee has come, but it'll cost you dearly.The outgoing Grand Cherokee's interior had been steadily updated over its approximate decade-long run, but the new fifth generation's top-tier Summit Reserve exists on a different plane. All but the base Laredo now come with leather seats of some description, and they get progressively plusher until you arrive at our Summit Reserve's sumptuous Quilted Palermo Leather seats, which have matching leather armrests and door trim panels paired with open-pore wood accents.
For comparison: For the PowerAnits there are seven components: internal combustion engine (ICE), turbocharger (TC), hybrid system kinetics (MGU-K), hybrid system thermal (MGU-H), battery (ES), electronics (CE) and exhaust ( EX).
Nevertheless, the durability of the gears must be extended, because unlike over the past few years, when other gearboxes were allowed to be used on freights, the 2022 is only four times possible.
Each team is available four jokers. In this case, a transmission outside the pool may be used on Fridays to test developments, for example. At the season opener in Bahrain, Sergio Perez (Red Bull) and Esteban Ocon (Alpine) have already made use of it.Maintenance in consultation with FIA possible
To meet the greater load, maintenance work may be performed on the gearbox. However, this must be done in consultation with the FIA. In addition, all competitors must be kept in the picture.
The Great 8: 2022 Ridler Award finalists
By now you’ve probably seen the outrageous “Sho Bird”, the radical custom 1931 Chevrolet Independence that won the Ridler Award at the 2022 Detroit Autorama.

In a FIA document, it is said to: "It is up to the applicant to carry out all necessary measures to convince the FIA that this article is fully complied with. This can be a precise documentation of the work done, photos, enumeration from part numbers and so on. "
Even during a race weekend, a gear may be saved for example after an accident. Thus, gears, the so-called "dog rings", which replace the synchronized rings in race gears, and the reverse gear can be replaced under the supervision of a technical delegate. This may only take place if damage to the components can be detected.
All in all, there will be no grid penalty over wide stretches of the season. As with the engine, this is a topic that will come in the second half of the season when it comes to the title.
also creates the system for the teams some air to breathe on street courses such as Monaco, Jidda, Baku or Montreal, where the walls are very close to the route. An accident here no longer automatically leads to a grid penalty when the gearbox is damaged. Of course, that also applies to all other routes.

Tested: 2022 Toyota Prius Prime's Time Has Come and Gone .
Plug-in hybrids are no longer novel, and most have now surpassed this pioneering Toyota.The Prius Prime launched as a 2017 model, and in the five years since it hasn't changed much. The Prime is marketed as a separate model from the regular Prius, and in addition to its modified powertrain, it has slightly different—but equally bizarre—exterior styling. Back when Toyota was designing the Prime, it evidently was taken with the idea that a key element behind the Prius's popularity was its outside-the-mainstream appearance.
