Rally Raid
RALLY RAID, also known as CROSS-COUNTRY RALLYING is a form of long distance off-road racing that takes place over several days. Each day may require traveling up to 900 kilometres (560 mi). The length of the event can be 3–15 days. Examples of rally raid races include the Paris- Dakar Rally , Budapest-Bamako TransAnatolia Rally Raid, Hellas Rally Raid in Greece, Rallye des Pharaons , Central Europe Rally , Spanish Baja , Raid De Himalaya , Coast to Coast Rally,Klang-Sabak Rally Raid and Russian Baja Northern Forest . The first African rally raid run was the Côte-Côte Rally, first held in December 1976. While off-road Rally Raiding is dominated by the Dakar Rally, a multiple event World Cup exists, the FIA Cross-Country Rally World Cup and FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship . For amateurs the Budapest-Bamako has been considered the world's largest amateur rally raid spanning two continents and 9000 kilometers.

Automobile Layout
In automotive design , the AUTOMOBILE LAYOUT describes where on the vehicle the engine and drive wheels are found. Many different combinations of engine location and driven wheels are found in practice, and the location of each is dependent on the application for which the vehicle will be used. Factors influencing the design choice include cost, complexity, reliability, packaging (location and size of the passenger compartment and boot ), weight distribution , and the vehicle's intended handling characteristics . Layouts can roughly be divided into two categories: front- or rear-wheel drive. Four-wheel-drive vehicles may take on the characteristics of either, depending on how power is distributed to the wheels.

Four-wheel Drive
FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE, also called 4×4 ("four by four") or 4WD refers to type of a vehicle, specifically one with its drivetrain capable of providing torque to all wheel ends of a two-axled vehicle simultaneously. It may be full-time, or on-demand, and is typically linked via a transfer case which provides an additional output drive-shaft, along with additional gear ranges . When a four-wheeled vehicle has torque supplied to both axles, this is described as "all-wheel drive" (AWD) . However, "four-wheel drive" typically refers to a set of specific components and functions, and/or intended offroad application, which generally complies with modern use of the terminology

Mitsubishi Pajero Evolution
The MITSUBISHI PAJERO (/pəˈdʒɛroʊ/ ; Spanish: ; Japanese パジェロ ) is a sport utility vehicle manufactured by Mitsubishi . It was named after Leopardus pajeros, the Pampas cat , which is native to the Patagonia
Patagonia
plateau region of southern Argentina. But pajero in Spanish is also a common term of abuse, usually translated as "wanker " or "tosser ", thus perhaps why alternative names have been used for many markets. It is known as the MITSUBISHI MONTERO (meaning "mountain hunter" ) in the Americas
Americas
(except Brazil and Jamaica), and Spain, while in the United Kingdom it is known as the MITSUBISHI SHOGUN. In Japan, the Pajero was sold at a specific retail chain called "Car Plaza ". Discontinued in the United States in 2006, the vehicle continues to be sold in the rest of the world in its fourth-generation iteration. Thanks to their success, the Pajero, Montero and Shogun names were also applied to other, mechanically unrelated models, such as the Pajero Mini kei car , the Pajero Junior and Pajero iO/Pinin mini SUVs , and the Mitsubishi Pajero/Montero/Shogun Sport . Main rivals are the Land Rover Discovery

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution
The MITSUBISHI LANCER EVOLUTION, also known as the LANCER EVO or just EVO, was a sports sedan manufactured by Mitsubishi Motors
Mitsubishi Motors
that is based on the normal Lancer . There have been ten official versions to date, and the designation of each model is most commonly a Roman numeral . All use two litre, turbocharged engines and all-wheel drive systems. The Evolution was originally intended only for Japanese markets, but demand on the "grey import" market led the Evolution series to be offered through Ralliart dealer networks in the United Kingdom and in various European markets from around 1998. Mitsubishi decided to export the eighth generation Evolution to the United States in 2003 after witnessing the success Subaru

had in that market with their long-time direct rival, the Subaru
Subaru
Impreza WRX STi . Japanese-spec cars were limited by a gentlemen\'s agreement to advertise no more than 280 PS (206 kW; 276 hp), a mark already reached by Evolution IV. Therefore, each subsequent version has unofficially evolved above the advertised power figures, with the Japanese-spec Evolution IX reaching an alleged output of around 321 PS (236 kW; 317 hp). Various versions available in other markets, particularly the UK, have official power outputs up to 446 PS (328 kW; 440 hp)

Engine
An ENGINE or MOTOR is a machine designed to convert one form of energy into mechanical energy . Heat engines burn a fuel to create heat , which is then used to create a force . Electric motors convert electrical energy into mechanical motion; pneumatic motors use compressed air and clockwork motors in wind-up toys use elastic energy . In biological systems, molecular motors , like myosins in muscles , use chemical energy to create forces and eventually motion

Turbodiesel
TURBO-DIESEL, also written as TURBODIESEL and TURBO DIESEL, refers to any diesel engine equipped with a turbocharger . Turbocharging is common in modern car and truck diesel engines to produce higher power outputs, lower emissions levels, and improved efficiency from a similar capacity of engine . Turbo-diesels in automobiles offer a higher refinement level than their naturally aspirated counterparts.

Winterthur
. Büchi specifically intended his device to be used on diesel engines . His patent of 1905 noted the efficiency improvements that a turbocharger could bring to diesel engines which in 1922 had first been developed for use in road transportation. At the time, metal and bearing technology was not sufficiently advanced to allow a practical turbocharger to be built. The first practical turbodiesels were marine engines fitted to two German passenger liners - the Danzig and the Preussen in 1923, each having two 10-cylinder engines of 2,500 horsepower (the naturally aspirated version of the same engine produced 1,750 HP)

Transmission (mechanics)
A TRANSMISSION is a machine in a power transmission system, which provides controlled application of the power. Often the term transmission refers simply to the GEARBOX that uses gears and gear trains to provide speed and torque conversions from a rotating power source to another device. In British English , the term transmission refers to the whole drivetrain , including clutch, gearbox, prop shaft (for rear-wheel drive), differential, and final drive shafts. In American English, however, the term refers more specifically to the gearbox alone, and detailed usage differs. The most common use is in motor vehicles , where the transmission adapts the output of the internal combustion engine to the drive wheels. Such engines need to operate at a relatively high rotational speed , which is inappropriate for starting, stopping, and slower travel. The transmission reduces the higher engine speed to the slower wheel speed, increasing torque in the process. Transmissions are also used on pedal bicycles, fixed machines, and where different rotational speeds and torques are adapted. Often, a transmission has multiple gear ratios (or simply "gears") with the ability to switch between them as speed varies. This switching may be done manually (by the operator) or automatically. Directional (forward and reverse) control may also be provided. Single-ratio transmissions also exist, which simply change the speed and torque (and sometimes direction) of motor output

Wheelbase
In both road and rail vehicles , the WHEELBASE is the distance between the centers of the front and rear wheels. For road vehicles with more than two axles (e.g. some trucks), the wheelbase is defined as the distance between the steering (front) axle and the centerpoint of the driving axle group. In the case of a tri-axle truck, the wheelbase would be the distance between the steering axle and a point midway between the two rear axles. Wheelbase

Curb Weight
CURB WEIGHT ( American English
American English
) or KERB WEIGHT ( British English
British English
) is the total weight of a vehicle with standard equipment, all necessary operating consumables such as motor oil , transmission oil, coolant , air conditioning refrigerant, and sometimes a full tank of fuel , while not loaded with either passengers or cargo . This definition may differ from definitions used by governmental regulatory agencies or other organizations. For example, many European Union manufacturers include the weight of a 75-kilogram (165 lb) driver to follow European Directive 95/48/EC. Organizations may also define curb weight with fixed levels of fuel and other variables to equalize the value for the comparison of different vehicles. The United States Environmental Protection Agency regulations define curb weight as follows: Curb weightmeans the actual or the manufacturer’s estimated weight of the vehicle in operational status with all standard equipment, and weight of fuel at nominal tank capacity, and the weight of optional equipment computed in accordance with §86.1832–01; incomplete light-duty trucks shall have the curb weight specified by the manufacturer.
