Safe car driving

Safe car driving

Hello everyone! Having a certain experience of driving a car (since 1989), like many drivers, I try to improve my driving skills all the time. In this regard, I attended counter emergency driving courses, became interested in sports car driving and in general everything related to competent driving car ...

On Duster sideways on the ice of Lake Ladoga

On Duster sideways on the ice of Lake Ladoga

Studded rubber rips open the ice and throws icy splashes into the air. If you look at everything that happens from afar, the action looks like a bizarre dance, only in the role of ordinary Renault cars waltzing on the ice. Here they drive sideways, enter the turn with a skid, write out eights, ...

Our THIRD video tutorial. Demolition of the front axle, and methods of fighting are removed!

Our THIRD video tutorial. Demolition of the front axle, and methods of fighting are removed!

Today on our YouTube channel we have uploaded our third video tutorial. Its subject is the front axle drift. In this case, it does not matter what type of drive you have. During the sliding of the front wheels, all types of drive are the same in their behavior, and even the stabilization systems will not help you. Demolition…

Winter Driving Courses from Southern Alberta Solosport Club

Winter Driving Courses from Southern Alberta Solosport Club

While Ombre was struggling with GM's choice of beers in Houston, it took me into my head to see what was going on in the area on the automotive theme. It turned out that winter driving courses are held quite regularly within the framework of the South Alberti motorsport club with the support of the BMW owners club. True,…

The Whole Truth About Audi Driving School + What You Can Do With Quattro Civic Q7 - Day 2

The Whole Truth About Audi Driving School + What You Can Do With Quattro Civic Q7 - Day 2

Friends, take the report from the second day - from morning to evening they beat on the ice on the Audi Q7 3.0 TDI, who would have thought that an absolutely civilian car could give so many emotions? It's just some kind of fiction :) More precisely, not fiction, but the main merit of the permanent all-wheel drive quat ...

Breaking Bad: Subaru Driving School

Breaking Bad: Subaru Driving School

Do you know all the possibilities of your (especially a new) car with increased ground clearance and all-wheel drive, if you are not an auto engineer, not a hardened motorist with a pile of magazines "Behind the wheel" of the 80s, not a car journalist and, in extreme cases, not an autoblogger ? Let us assume that you know, understand and realize. ...

Why are you getting your hands on the wheel wrong and why is there an AMG driving school?

Why are you getting your hands on the wheel wrong and why is there an AMG driving school?

The AMG Driving Academy basic course certificate is issued to all Mercedes-Benz AMG car buyers. But many come to class after crashing their charged car. And here they are not at all entertaining pokatushki. The scene is the Moscow Raceway. Fit and with ...

What should every driver know? Part two. Higher driving skills.

What should every driver know? Part two. Higher driving skills.

A year ago I graduated from emergency training courses at the School of Advanced Driving Skills. The article received a lot of attention with over 50,000 views and many comments. There were a lot of discussions on the topic: are such courses necessary or is it all nonsense, a waste of money and a great ride and ...

Ride everyone! Renault Winter Driving School.

Ride everyone! Renault Winter Driving School.

Oh yes, it was an unforgettable experience of improving driving skills in harsh conditions on the ice of a frozen lake. It's one thing to hone the skills of a useless skid in a hypermarket parking lot, and another thing to effectively navigate the track using a useful skid, while trying not to listen to your instincts ...

Skip Barber 1 day racing school at Laguna Seca

We have several tracks nearby and there are two driving schools on them - Skip Barber Racing school and Simraceway driving school. Both here and there you can be taught how to squeeze all the juice out of your Prius in an all-season or organize the first season in a semi-training, semi-professional national racing series ...

The third "whip" can not be caught, or Basic laws of counter-emergency driving on ice

The third "whip" can not be caught, or Basic laws of counter-emergency driving on ice

Winter. Intercity highway. Snow from above. Ice under the wheels. Someone barely drives forward, trying to cope with the car and the weather. You take a sharp left and ... the front wheels go into demolition, losing grip. Ungovernable. Terrible. With a probability of 80% ending in an oncoming car or tree, or post. Et ...

The main mistake on the winter road, how to cut on the ice and what does the tracked Duster have to do with it?

The main mistake on the winter road, how to cut on the ice and what does the tracked Duster have to do with it?

There was nothing unusual about this turn. I have ridden here dozens of times. Briefly applying the brake, turning the steering wheel ... but instead of entering the turn, the car on the turned wheels skidded in drift. I turn the steering wheel harder, I put on the brake - to no avail. Like an uncontrollable "cheesecake", my Duster howled ...

Jaguar Land Rover Experience Opening

Jaguar Land Rover Experience Opening

Last Saturday I was lucky enough to attend the opening of the Jaguar Land Rover Experience driving site. The proving ground was conceived by analogy with the Jeep Territory or the Audi Quattro Experience: to practice the driving skills of both Land Rover SUVs and road versions of Jaguar cars. Has ...

Audi quattro days in Moscow.

Audi quattro days in Moscow.

By the way, there is a continuation, the link to the second day will be at the end of the post! Surely when many hear the familiar phrase Quattro, they immediately imagine powerful and fast missiles like the RS6 or RS7. Whoever has a richer imagination, then you can imagine a more powerful modification of Perfomance. It would be stupid to ...

Learning to do the rebase.

Learning to do the rebase.

If you want to know more about amateur motorsport, then start with the FAQ! Our grandfathers also used a similar method to shift gears both "up" and "down". But that was even more difficult, because they were doing a double squeeze, and the meaning was completely different. And today we will figure out how with the help of this ...

Math "obochechnik"

Math "obochechnik"

Now I know 2 working ways to combat this phenomenon. I saw the first in the suburbs. Every morning on Yandex maps, this road turned red-brown. At first, two lanes narrowed to one, and then a well-rolled shoulder ended with an obstacle. This was hell. Now everyone goes exactly ...

Choosing a car for learning to drive on a rear wheel drive

Choosing a car for learning to drive on a rear wheel drive

It's no secret that driving a rear-wheel drive car is an order of magnitude more fun and more difficult than any other. For me, this is, first of all, a lot of room for creativity. The informativeness of the steering wheel untouched by parasitic forces, in contrast to front-wheel drive cars, gives a completely different feeling of waving ...

Off-road master class in Nizhny Novgorod on July 11, 2015. (report)

Off-road master class in Nizhny Novgorod on July 11, 2015. (report)

In order to get around Friday's traffic jams and have time to prepare for class, I left home on Thursday evening. The rain poured on me all the way, but by the time I arrived at the Fridom Trophy glade near Nizhny Novgorod, it had stopped. Looking around the competition venue and the mounted stage, I realized that it was quiet ...

On a Porsche for almost nothing

On a Porsche for almost nothing

You can sniff gunpowder behind the wheel of powerful cars in many driving schools. In Russia, BMW, Audi, Jaguar and Mercedes-AMG provide such a chance. But what about Porsche, whose sports cars are particularly demanding on driver skills? Surprisingly, Pors educational institution ...

The technique of high-speed switching, or what is needed besides the technique itself.

The technique of high-speed switching, or what is needed besides the technique itself.

Stock is a compromise of little things between comfort, budget and performance. And tuning simply removes this compromise, taking the performance side. So tuning is all about little things. It is a mistake to believe that having done a great job and screwing on the turbine, you really tightened the wheelbarrow ... Today I will try to talk about ...

Off-road master class in Voronezh on July 18, 2015 (report)

Off-road master class in Voronezh on July 18, 2015 (report)

The master class in Voronezh was preceded by a week of travel from Nizhny Novgorod. We rode unconventionally, so we drove two thousand kilometers. But I will definitely write about this trip separately, and now we are talking about the lesson. I arrived on it in the middle of Friday and was immediately surrounded by the care and attention of the meetings ...

Exam in the traffic police 4+ months history

Finally, getting a California driver's license can be off your shoulders! Probably I phrased it upside down, but the point is that I finally got a local VU. This story began in March 2015. "Thank you" to the new law AB-60, due to which illegal immigrants ...

Drag. School or an introduction to the theory and practice of off-roading through the eyes of a beginner

Warning: once you try, you run the risk of becoming extremely addictive! And that's how it worked out for me. First, poor Khoma immediately drove onto a curbstone in a light forest orienteering, then the guys from Stupino took me with them to look for Babayka, and thoughts in my head began to appear well, quite earlier I was not comfortable ...

Greetings, dear friends) For almost a week (including flights) I fell out of the rhythm of life and business activity, and all because I improved my driving skills at the quattro school on the ice of frozen lakes between Khanty-Mansiysk and Surgut! There are a lot of emotions and impressions, photos are still painful ...
