blogentry-133713-0-93098400-1527390090_thumb.jpgZenvo premiered the road-going TSR-S at March’s Geneva Motor Show. Watch how the extremely cool rear wing work around a track in the video...

 

Called the Centripetal Wing, the wing is tilts away from the absolute horizontal when the car turns, producing downforce that stays perpendicular to the plane of the wing thereby generating a centripetal force. This centripetal force reduces the tendency of the rear end to break away. Also, the high pivot point of the wing allows it to act as an additional rear anti-roll bar. This provides additional grip to the inner wheel, reducing the chance of a loss of traction at the rear.

 

To be honest, it all sounds cool but we aren't sure it actually works...

 

Nonetheless, the TSR-S is a pretty cool car. It has 'two' gearbox - a motorsport-spec seven-speed dog-box transmission, which can 'switch between a standard road gearbox configuration and a brutal mechanical direct power-shift race set-up that delivers a genuine race car experience on the track'.

 

Also, it is equipped with a 5.8-litre flat-plane V8 with two superchargers and a crazy 1177bhp. All that power allows the TSR-S to reach 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds and 200 km/h in 6.8 seconds.

    Is this a good way to make a small bike look bigger?

    Spotted on SG Road Vigilante's facebook page is this amusing photo of a motorbike's number plate. According to them, this was taken on 1st of July 2020 at Bukit Batok West Edge and the bike in question is a Yamaha Aerox. We have no idea why would someone flout the law to do this. To improve aerodynamics? To make the bike look bigger than it is? Or to make it harder to be identifed by the Traffic Police's camera and Traffic Police wannabes on SG Road Vigilante? What do you all think?

    Kudos to our Special Operation Command for stopping this cyclist!

    Our Circuit Breaker measures sure bring up quite a few weird incidents. I mean why would you even cycle in an expressway tunnel? As seen on ROAD.sg's website, it did seemed like someone cycled along our Marina Coastal Expressway on the 9th of April and was stopped by a Special Operation Command Police vehicle. As uncommon as it is to see a cyclist on an expressway, it is even rarer to see someone from the SOC stop a traffic offender as it is not part of their job scope. Kudos to the fellas for going the extra mile!  Even netizens on the facebook page were also grateful to police force! videoplayback.mp4

    Mazda CX-5 caught in flood waters!

    Yes, we know SUVs are all what consumers today want. But as car enthusiasts, they are a no-no in terms of driving fun. Now, here's another example of why SUVs aren't as cool or tough as they look. As seen on SG Road Vigilante's page on 30th April, a Mazda CX-5 was spotted at Lorong Gambir going through a pool of standing water after the day's torrential rain. It all seemed fine and dandy until a photo of the car being towed away was featured. We have no idea how bad the car was damaged by the flood but judging from the photo, the bow wave created by the Mazda was pretty high and water could have gone into its intake system, causing some internal damage. We hope that is not the case and that it is just some electrical issues that caused the car to be immobilised.  We also hope the older generation Silver CX-5 that was in one of the photos survived the flood too!

    Overzealous Megane RS loses it and crashes into the barriers

    Another high-performance car has been spotted in a crash while going at a good speed. Our latest post shows a Black Renault Megane RS going at a decent speed before losing control while stepping on his brakes.  e166fed5-f4f3-4fbc-b00b-9de415dbd071.MP4 From the video, we can see that the driver was trying to avoid the road works in his lane but curiously, the car seems to have malfunctioned while he was on his brakes. If you looked at the video carefully, you could see straight black lines on the road, indicating that the tyres locked up before he slammed into the left side of the viaduct before bouncing across into the opposite barrier. While it did seem like the Megane was at or slightly above the speed limit, the crash is quite a mystery to us as under normal circumstances, there is more than sufficient space to stop or avoid the roadworks. What do you guys think? Could it be a brake failure, tyre puncture or a case of the driver falling asleep at the wheel? Let us know in the comments below!
