3 Things to Never Put Your Race Car Through to avoid Auto Repairs

Easy ways to avoid Auto repairs

Putting miles on your odometer and getting a few dents in your bumper is to be expected in the great city of San Diego. This is ordinary wear and tear that most car owners can expect to experience. As long as you do regular vehicle maintenance and store your car in the safest place possible when it’s not in use, you can expect it to have a long life. However, if you commit deceptively simple, deadly auto sins, you may not be aware of the potential consequences. Here are three things to never put your race car through.

  1. Driving On Empty

gas guage is empty light is onYou may find yourself in a variety of situations where you skip that trip to the gas station thats right there in the Greater San Diego area. Maybe you’re on your way to work and running late, so you let your gas gauge slip to empty. A long distance trip might lead you to forget to gas up before hopping on the highway. Whatever the situation, not filling your tank leads to serious wear and tear on your fuel line. When running on empty, your car is forced to dredge up whatever fuel is in the tank, which can lead to clogs and dirt in your fuel line. Avoid unnecessary vehicle repair by making sure you always have a full tank and keep things running smoothly. You can also save money by choosing to gas up at stations you find with the lowest prices.

  1. Skipping Oil Changes

Many mechanics recommend an oil change every 2,000-3,000 miles, according to the DMV, though many cars can go for longer. However, never exceed 5,000 miles without an oil change or you may need auto repair. This can cause serious damage to your car and create much larger, more expensive problems. Make sure you also keep regular tabs on how much oil is in your engine by checking the level with the oil dipstick found under the hood. It should be clean, but still have a dark color to it.  The guys at can take care of that easily enough for your vehicle repair.

  1. Ignoring the Engine Light

Seeing the engine light pop on is many San Diego car owners’ worst nightmare, check engine light on means auto repairbut the light is there for a reason. Although it may look like a series of dollar signs that you’ll soon be parting with, in reality, the longer the light stays on and goes unaddressed, the worse the problem will become.

As a starting point, Car Care recommends checking that your gas cap is screwed on all the way, your oil dipstick is firmly fitted in place, and that the oil cap in your engine is on tightly. All of these issues can trigger the check engine light to illuminate. If none of these tactics make a difference, it’s time to take your car to the mechanic right away. Engine lights can come on for a variety of reasons, especially in today’s highly sensitive auto mechanisms. An auto repair professional will be able to run a diagnostic on your vehicle and provide a fair quote on how much it will be to fix it. If the price they offer seems astronomical, taking it to a different shop for a second opinion can’t hurt. However, the worst thing you can do is ignore the light.

Most of these issues are completely avoidable as long as you operate your vehicle properly. Avoid the deadly auto sins, and you’ll be putting years on the life of your vehicle.

Man and Machine – The Formula in F1 Racing [Documentary HD]

Man and Machine – The Formula in F1 Racing [Documentary HD]
Formula One, also known as Formula 1 or F1 and referred to officially as the FIA Formula One World Championship,[2] is the highest class of single-seater auto racing sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA). The “formula”, designated in the name, refers to a set of rules with which all participants’ cars must comply.[3] The F1 season consists of a series of races, known as Grands Prix (from French, originally meaning great prizes), held throughout the world on purpose-built circuits and public roads. The results of each race are evaluated using a points system to determine two annual World Championships, one for the drivers and one for the constructors. The racing drivers, constructor teams, track officials, organisers, and circuits are required to be holders of valid Super Licences, the highest class of racing licence issued by the FIA.[4]

Formula One cars are the fastest multi-turn circuit-racing cars in the world, owing to very high cornering speeds achieved through the generation of large amounts of aerodynamic downforce. Formula One cars race at speeds of up to 350 km/h (220 mph) with engines currently limited in performance to a maximum of 15,000 RPM. The cars are capable of lateral acceleration in excess of five g in corners. The performance of the cars is very dependent on electronics — although traction control and other driving aids have been banned since 2008 — and on aerodynamics, suspension and tyres. The formula has radically evolved and changed through the history of the sport.

While Europe is the sport’s traditional base, and hosts about half of each year’s races, the sport’s scope has expanded significantly during recent years and an increasing number of Grands Prix are held on other continents. F1 had a total global television audience of 527 million people during the course of the 2010 season.[5]

Grand Prix racing began in 1906 and became the most popular type internationally in the second half of the twentieth century. The Formula One Group is the legal holder of the commercial rights.[6] With annual spending totalling billions of US dollars, Formula One’s economic effect and creation of jobs is significant, and its financial and political battles are widely reported. Its high profile and popularity have created a major merchandising environment, which has resulted in great investments from sponsors and budgets in the hundreds of millions for the constructors. Since 2000 the sport’s spiraling expenditures have forced several teams, including manufacturers’ works teams, into bankruptcy. Others have been bought out by companies wanting to establish a presence within the sport, which strictly limits the number of participant teams.
