The latest 3.4 litre version of the Powertec RP V8 Doubled up Tom Sharp investigates a cost effective V8 racing engine on behalf of Powertec. It essentially consists of a pair of Hayabusa engines, arranged at a 72° bank angle, driving a common crankshaft and mounted to a dedicated dry-sumped crankcase. The result is a P keenly priced V8 engine that is very light, powerful and reliable. The having initially a 2.6 litre displacement, it had been commissioned by been joined by three other varieties (see Table 1), which demonstrates Radical Motorsport for installation into that company’s SR8 sports-racing just how much flexibility is in the base package. The numbers tell the car. Radical specialised in motorcycle-engined sports-racers and was story of commercial success well enough. Powertec have to date built keen to augment its popular four cylinder machines with a V8. a total of 110 RP engines (including 75 RPAs and 25 RPBs); volumes owertec Engineering’s innovative, Suzuki Hayabusa-based engine is now owned, manufactured and built by Powertec Engineering RP V8 engine was introduced in the UK at the Autosport from its base in Peterborough, England.

However, DOSSIER : POWERTEC RP V8 ENGINE RP V8 CAD image governs UK motorsport – they banned it on the grounds of it not being derived from a passenger-carrying vehicle. Horne’s solicitors eventually ensured the car received its required log book but the MSA made it clear that the RP was not welcome in rallying. Powertec’s original product portfolio plan had included a 2.0 litre ‘screamer’ version, but as Ted Hurrell explains customer demand drove the capacity in the opposite direction. “The screamer was originally conceived for use in 2.0 litre hillclimb and VdeV sportscar racing, however the VdeV regulations quickly changed to insist upon four cylinder car engines and our hillclimb customers went in the direction of the unlimited classes, which means increasing swept volume as far as possible to maximize torque. So only one 2.0 litre engine was built before that variant was then unfortunately the RP series only represents 20% of Powertec’s business; the majority revolves around building and tuning the Suzuki Hayabusa four cylinder shelved. “Those two examples, of the 2.5 and 2.0 litre engines go to engines for markets such as motorbike racing, low volume production...

Changing the sixth generation Corvette Oil Difficulty: 2 out of 5. Time required: Plan on about 1.5 hours taking your time. Tools required: Ramps, Floor jack, Jack stand(s), 13mm wrench or socket, Oil filter wrench, lifting puck, wheel stops, shop rag. Materials required: 1 compatible oil filter, 6 quarts of compatible oil. Capacities are 5.5 Quarts with a filter change for the non-Z51 and 6 quarts with a filter change on the cars with the RPO Z51. Recommended oil is Mobil 1 fully synthetic 5W-30 (GM spec 4718M). Recommended Oil filter is GM UPF44 (2005), UPF46 (2006) UPF48 (2007-2009) If you have access to a lift you can skip to step 6. If you are doing this at home without access to a lift continue to the photos below. Step 1. Get the car up in the air. I use a couple of 2x4’s and my rhino ramps. The 2x4’s will give enough clearance to get up on the Rhino ramps without deflecting the side air dams. Step 2. Get yourself a little more clearance on the driver’s side for easier access to the oil drain plug and filter. Once I have the car up on the ramps I take my floor jack and jacking puck and raise the drivers side further. Don’t forget to block the rear tires once you have the car up on the ramp. Step 3. Get yourself some extra room. Once the jack is in place and the car is up out of the way I will turn the ramp around so that you have easy access behind the tire. Step 4. Place a jack stand up front under the frame support and lower the car back down. Now that the car is lifted and safely supported you can begin the process of changing out the oil. Step 5. Place your oil pan under the drain plug. I like to use a piece of cardboard under the drain pan to collect any oil that may miss the pan during the process of removing the...

The Chernobyl accident, which occurred on 26 April 1986, led to the contamination of vast expanses of land in Europe and in particular the three former-USSR Republics of Ukraine, Russia and Belarus, as well as Norway, turning the lives of a large part of the population in these countries on end. The extent of the disaster’s damage brought about greater awareness of the difficulties inherent in managing the accidental and post-accidental impacts of such an event. It is vital that every lesson be learned from this disaster, in particular to analyse its impacts on the lives of the populations affected. In France, in the years following the accident, a number of protective actions designed to mitigate the immediate radiological impacts of an accident for the populations were first set out for the emergency phase. They are regularly tested through crisis drills in which the at-risk populations are involved. In 2005, the National directorate for nuclear safety and radiation protection (DGSNR) which has since become the Nuclear safety authority (ASN), established a Steering committee for the management of the post-accident phase of a nuclear accident or a radiological emergency (CODIRPA), at the request of the Government. This process involves a large number of stakeholders affected by post-accident management: the public authorities, operators, associations, experts, etc. This decision to take advance action, which proceeds from a far-reaching protection approach, is intended to improve protection for human beings and the environment as regards the consequences of a possible nuclear accident that might bring about contamination of the land. The approach taken by CODIRPA has resulted in the development of policy elements for post-accident management in the event of a nuclear accident of medium scale, causing short-term releases, shown in this document. These policy elements are based on the international principles of radiation protection, as well as on the figures highlighted during the research carried out by CODIRPA participants. They also include management objectives along with a variety of actions through which these can be attained, in order to address a situation that is by nature extremely complex, due to the many topics to be addressed and the number of stakeholders involved.
P R O D U C T I N F O R M AT I O N ENGINE The heart of the new Daytona is its new engine, which brings more performance and a subtly new character too. The key change is the wider bore and shorter stroke dimensions, allowing a higher 14,400rpm rev limit to gain more power and a broader spread of usable revs. Facilitating this is the new block, separate from the upper crankcase and with ceramic coated aluminium bores so it can be made stronger to cope with the higher pressures. Power is up 3PS to 128PS (126bhp, 94.2kW), peaking earlier at 12,600rpm and revving on for longer. The torque maximum is 2Nm higher at 75Nm (55.3lb.ft, 7.63kgm), with an increase across the rev range. CHASSIS The new Daytona 675 frame uses fewer sections in its construction for a cleaner, stronger design and has sharper geometry and a shorter wheelbase to make full use of the revised mass distribution. The rear subframe, constructed from high pressure die cast aluminium, not only looks fantastic but contributes to the slim sharp design at the rear of the bike. SILENCER The exhaust system is a compact and purposeful new unit that neatly sits beneath the engine. This helps to centralise the bike’s mass and move the weight forward, key factors in making the new Daytona even more agile and yet more stable at speed too. TRANSMISSION The transmission features a new slip-assist clutch to provide a lighter lever action and help prevent rear wheel hop under heavy braking. This is aided by the engine management which opens the throttle butterflies to reduce engine braking.
