do any contemporary cars use spiral bevel diffs? by [email protected]
Hypoid gears waste energy. However the spiral bevel is noisier and has to be bigger to handle the same torque that hypoid gears can. So I presume muscle cars and trucks do not use spiral bevel gears. I was curious if anybody uses spiral bevel gears in the interests of saving fuel.

Latest car insurance telemarketing gimmick by geo pearl
I answered the phone and was told that they had spoken to me six months earlier and that they weren't selling anything. They said that their car insurance rates had been sharply reduced and would I like a rate quote? I said no thank-you and they hung up before I could beat them to it.

From OP: Re Previous Oil Question by Bob[_53_]
Hello, Thanks for all of my previous post replies from you all. Appreciate it very much. Great Forum. All set now. Just wondering about this a bit, so thought I'd ask also. a. I know it is a no-no to mix "regular" oil with "Synthetic" oil. I see that many of the offering say "Synthetic Blend"

atomic Prius? by [email protected]
We have nucular powered submarines, what about a land vehicle? How small can you make a urannium steam engine? It strikes me as the ultimate carbon emission reducer - -- Rich

Nissan NV200 (London taxi) weird driveshafts by [email protected]
The Nissan NV200 was a bog standard MPV on the Nissan-Renault B platform. Nissan wanted to get the London taxi market, but the NV200 is FWD. So they added an extra universal joint to driveshafts, allowing the wheels to turn more. This reduced the turning circle from 11 m to 7.6 m !!!!!! Now I have...
