Automotive Technology | Variable CAM Timing Variable CAM timing is a concept that entails changing the camshaft timing, as needed, depending on engine LOAD demands. This technology was impossible just a few years ago, due to the state of the art electronics needed. The latest Variable CAM Timing (VCT) systems are infinitely variable, meaning they have no specified settings. CAM timing can be changed or varied instantaneously across the whole range (ie. Plus or Minus 30 degrees from normal). By varying the CAM timing, the ECM can regulate the power curve to meet its own needs. On any gasoline engine, each RPM setting has an optimum CAM timing setting, depending on load. Up until a few years ago engines were set whatever the CAM lobes were machined at. With modern VCT, this relationship can be varied, also varying the engine's power curve. Most modern VCT systems do not control valve lift, but do great by simply changing open and close timing points during engine operation. See how it works here, with this superbly animated training video on automotive technology and variable cam timing (VCT).

The launch of McLaren Automotive At a press conference in the McLaren Technology Centre based in Woking, UK, Chairman Ron Dennis confirmed McLaren Automotive's ambition to compete head-to-head with the world's best high-performance sports car brands. The MP4-12C is the first model in this range of lightweight, high-quality, mid-engined two-seat sports cars, and will be produced at the new £40 million McLaren Production Centre. Up to 1000 12Cs will be produced in 2011 and will be distributed through a global network of dedicated McLaren retailers in all major markets.
McLaren Automotive and the MP4-12C best of 2010.wmv This short film features appearances from Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button, the 2008 and 2009 FIA Formula 1 Drivers' World Champions. Both have enjoyed testing prototype 12Cs and continue to feed back their thoughts on the car's development. The video also captures visitors' reactions to the 12C at its debut events. Brand new footage reveals McLaren Automotive's Chief Test Driver Chris Goodwin taking the car winter testing at Dunsfold Aerodrome -- also known as the BBC Top Gear test track -- as he assesses ESP calibration on Winter settings as part of the 12C's variable Proactive Chassis Control system.

3D-Sketching with modelling clay 2: techniques, tips and tricks for automotive design (part 2) This tutorial explains how to use modelling clay (industrial plasticine) for 3D-Sketching. It shows the working techniques and gives tips and tricks about the use of this malleable material which is used in almost all automotive styling studios but also in lots of product design and character design companies. The tangible clay model helps to enhance and understand shapes, surfaces and functionality of your design. Additionally we show how photos of the plasticine model can be used to improve your Copic marker skletches or as a base for your Photoshop work. In the video we use Kolb InDeClay (INdustrial DEsign Clay) which is perfect for small and detailled models as they are used in product-design and character-design. Due to it´s colour this clay shows extremly well shadows and therefore edges, surfaces and small details. Beside that the light colour makes it very easy to enhance photos of your models in Photoshop. This is part 2 of 2. For further information visit: www.kolb-

Automotive Technology | Crank Sensor Operation IMPORTANT: The crank sensor input signal is the most important signal in a modern vehicle. Without it the engine will not start. The crank sensor measures crankshaft position and rate of change. The ECM then synchronizes this signal to the CAM sensor and determines injection pulse, timing, fuel delivery, idle speed and everything else needed to run the engine. Learn how this component works and how to test it. (note: Weallow all schools and training institutions to use our software free of charge, so long as it is not sold to others.

AUTOMOTIVE UPHOLSTERY - TUTORIAL Leather-Wrapping a Pair of Metal-Door-Panels TUTORIAL Just two procedures used in Automotive Upholstery. The first one shows some steps to leather-wrapp a door-panel by projecting a background of straight-high-relief molds or figures which stand out on the leather surface simulating an embossed design. Different modeled forms or high-reliefs can be done using hard cardboard and adding some layers of the same stuff that project and give shape to a variety of designs which would be reflected on the leather surface. The second procedure shows two ways of using a ´leather-hole-punch´ to cut out holes in leather. The first way is by pounding the punch with a hammer. And the second easier way just by twisting back and forth the punch. In both cases use a piece of an ínsole-shoe-leather´as a back-support.
AUTOMOTIVE UPHOLSTERY-Steering-Wheel Stitches-TUTORIAL I am more than happy and satisfied to show a 'special job' I performed for my 'special customer and friend' Mr. Donn Gross from New Jersey- USA. It is of great significance to have accomplished this wheel which gave me the opportunity to show my art. The wheel was customized to the pleasure of my customer. It belongs to a Nissan 300 ZX. Complete procedures will be taught on the 'online courses'. The 'steering-wheel stitches' can also be used to decorate and assemble not only some parts of your wheel, but some other parts of your car interior like dashboards, posts, consoles, shift-boots, etc. These pieces are sometimes difficult to sew with the 'traditional sewing-machine'...so you have to do it by 'hand-stitching'. Watch the 'little samples' where I am revealing some useful 'tips'. I recommend to use 'euro-stitches' (especially diamond-shape) to put the leather pieces together. It is easier and looks great.
