    CSCBB's coaching corner

    Cscbb generated a lot of exciting debates about seemingly fair ministers salaries, unappreciative white collar folks, people who complain and grouse about life and government etc in the COE thread. In order not to distract the COE discussion, I create this new thread for cscbb to state his points here. I also like to invite all to participate in his debate and discussion here so that we all could leave the future COE threads alone so as to focus on COE price movement and discussion only. So please feel free to raise your points here.

    Corner lot parking

    --> AB| --> CC| What are the techniques to park in corner lots, like Lot A and B if you come in from left side with walls | on the other end and cars in the opposite lot? Lot A probably can reverse park in or head in? But Lot B has to be head in parking?

  7. Hi all.. think it's better to shift from the coe thread to this folder, since it's reached 100 pages liao. Also better to have a dedicated TCSS thread so as not to mislead ppl who want to know about COE cars, into reading 100+ pages just to find out that there's only 2-3 pages of useful info. To continue from the COE thread (half of us not driving coe cars anw): http://www.mycarforum.com/forum/COE_car_cl...260063/#2260063 Feel free to discuss, ask or just talk about anything under the sun. Keep the ball rolling.. Cheers,
  8. hi fellow tarzanboys and girls, welcome to part 11 of this tcss corner. have fun. [wave]
  9. And notice the driver of the blue car (pointing angrily at the cam?) just before he hits the car in front.
  10. (1) How to diy a 'tool' for cleaning small spaces/spots of rims which have 'hard-to-reach' design? (2) How to 'measure' grip provided by different surface material? Let me explain: my DIY race track (for radio control racing at home, MiniZ class) is almost finalised. Now need to simulate the grip provided by commercial track in the shops:- they use 'special' (but costly) rubber mats, I am trying to use handyman sand paper to save money. I need to 'measure' the special rubber mat's friction/grip and get the correct grade of sand paper to match it. Maybe i put the miniZ car on the mat and try to measure what side-force is needed to push it side-way while stationary? (ie simulating sideway-Gforce in a fast corner), but how to measure the side-force (cant rely on 'feels' if i use my fingers to push it)? Many thanks

  12. if someone as ordinary as me knows the chances of TJS to garner more votes is to have only 1 non-PAP linked candidate, people like CSM should already be their chief campaign and strategist. My guess: TKL will withdraw too bad, Singapore Pool dun have odds on this,
  13. There were still seats available in the cafe, but a family apparently did not allow their maid to sit with them. Instead, she stood in a corner, said STOMPer benji. The STOMPer tells us more (Apr 16): "I spotted this family at Marina Square, in the cafe Bao Today. "They apparently asked the maid to stand at one side. "Maid abuse? "Initially I noticed a figure standing behind me after the family came in. "The family noticed that I took pictures of them, so they asked her to sit down. But she was still left at the corner. "I approached her to offer her a drink but she just shook her head. Tears were welling up in her eyes. "She said she was part of that family. "She looked like she was quite new. "The family finished their food and left, but their maid did not eat a single bite."

  19. SINGAPORE: Singapore citizens may organise or participate in demonstrations at the Speakers' Corner without having to obtain a police permit from September 1. The demonstrations may relate to anything except matters concerning race and religion. Placards, banners, effigies and self-powered handheld amplification devices such as loudhailers will be allowed at the Speakers' Corner. The Speakers' Corner will be opened 24 hours a day, seven days a week, throughout the year. Singapore permanent residents can also participate in a demonstration, but they are required to obtain a police permit if they wish to organise the demonstration themselves or to speak at the Speakers' Corner. Current rules, however, still apply to foreigners. They have to apply for permit if they wish to conduct or participate in any activity at the Speakers' Corner. Police and the National Parks Board (NParks), which will manage the site, said the Speakers' Corner will continue to be supervised with a light touch. NParks will administer the registration for the use of Speakers' Corner, while the police will focus its role to deal with any public order concern or public complaints. Online registration, which starts from August 30, can be made at the NParks website. Taken from: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/sin.../371502/1/.html

    2008 Altis on the corner

    [inline 2008_altis_ext1.jpg] With the 10th generation Corolla due for a Thai release sometime this year, let's take the time to have a look at what we can expect from the 2008 Corolla Altis. How will it differ from the current model, and how well will it stack up against the Honda Civic? 10th Generation, all change! Toyota seem very keen to change the Corolla image with the 10th generation sedan. And as you can see from the images on this site the design for the new Corolla is a dramatic departure from the succession of dull, anonymously styled models that we've come to expect. Is it beautiful? No. But it is interesting, and we will settle for that. Finally a Corolla with a personality of its own. Previously Corollas always looked like Toyota had taken all the most boring design elements from other manufacturers and dulled them down even further to insure that there was nothing particularly outstanding or different. Recent model releases have revealed a new direction for Toyota, and the Corolla Altis will follow this trend with styling borrowed from the Camry. Bigger and better At 4,540mm long, 1,760mm wide, and 1,470mm high, the 2008 Altis will be 10mm longer, 60mm wider and 20mm lower than the current model. The wheelbase will be unchanged at 2,600mm, but with the wider track and lower center of gravity the handling should be noticeably improved. The extra width should also improve cabin space, and although slightly lower, the Altis is still 50mm taller than the Civic. Previously Toyota had been restricting the width of the Corolla to 1,700mm to avoid a higher tax in Japan, which had resulted in a awkwardly tall and ungainly looking stance for the current model. Dual VVT-i Engine(s) Toyota engines have been leading the way in terms of refinement and efficiency of late, and this is set to continue with the use of new dual VVT-i engines in the 2008 Altis. While I'm not certain at this time, it would seem logical for Toyota to make use of the new dual VVT-i technology in the Altis, with the 1.6 liter 1ZR-FE and 1.8 liter 2ZR-FE being the two likely options for the Thai market. The 1.6 liter should produce a healthy 124 hp, while we can expect the 1.8 to be around 140hp, on par with the 1.8 liter Civic power output. But the 1.6 will represent the bulk of the sales here. The dual VVT-i engines take Toyota's cam shaft variation one step further, allowing independent cam shaft variation for both intake and exhaust timing using one electro-hydraulic variation system for each of the cam shafts. In the case of the 1.6-liter the torque curve dual VVT-i system enables a very flat torque curve, which stays above 140 Nm from 2,000 rpm right up to 6,000 rpm, with peak torque of 157 Nm at 5,200 rpm. This characteristic of the engine will mean smooth and powerful acceleration from low engine speeds and excellent top-end power. The new European Corolla uses the 1.6 dual VVT-i engine to achieve fuel economy figures of 15km/l in the European combined fuel cycle. Although the 1.8 liter will offer even more power, the 1.6 is plenty capable, with 0-100km in just under 10.5 seconds, and a top speed of 195 km/h. F1 inspired gear changes The European Corolla has some interesting features that might be discarded for the Thai model. Among them is a Formula 1 style gear change indication light which shows the driver the optimum moment to change gears. This feature is only on the manual version (obviously), and since manual transmission are reserved for the budget trim levels in Thailand, it's safe to assume that we won't see this sort of feature. According to Toyota, following the advise of this system will result in around a 5% increase in fuel economy. High end models which are fitted out with cruise control will have a "speed limiter" feature. The driver can set the maximum permitted speed, for example 120 km/m for expressway driving, and will be able to accelerate normally until the car reaches this speed. The system can be over ridden in case of emergency by simply kicking down on the gas. Also on the high end models we can expect to see the MultiMode transmission with automatic selection, or manual sequential selection available through steering wheel mounted shift paddles. This is akin to the system in the top-of-the-range Civic, and will probably be a 5-speed box. All-new suspension The current Corolla Altis is excellent at smoothing out bumps in Bangkok roads, but this ride quality comes at the expense of driver involvement. The new 2008 Altis should change all that, thanks to brand new suspension, and a new electric steering system. A newly-developed L-arm MacPherson strut is a compact and rigid solution, which brings the suspension strut in-board of the wheel hub to improve noise and vibration suppression. This design should also improve straight line stability, and steering responsiveness. Rear suspension is by way of a new torsion beam which is a popular arrangement as it allows increased boot space. The suspension layout separates the coil spring and damper while allowing a wider track for the cargo area. The new Electric Power Steering (EPS) should provide a high level of control, and make for easy work around town. Additionally, the EPS system contributes to fuel economy since it only uses power when steering force assistance is needed, and since it doesn't require hydraulic fluid, it is also more environmentally friendly than conventional power steering systems. Safety The Corolla has achieved a 5-star rating on the Euro NCAP safety test. However, it is unlikely that the Thai model will come with all nine (9) airbags available in the European market, but it is possible that they will be optional at the high end. A standard feature that should carry over (as standard) is the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist. There is really no good reason to skimp when it comes to safety equipment, and ABS makes a big difference. The Altis will also likely have Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) with Traction Control (TRC) on the options list. Interior The interior should resemble these images quite closely, however some details could be borrowed from the Japanese model, which is a little more conservative than the European Corolla. Personally I hope that we get the European interior, but both are acceptable. The main difference is the steering wheel, and the dials with central metering displays for the European market, with a more traditional looking arrangement on the Japanese model. Regardless, the quality of the interior and the styling looks like a step in the right direction, but still a bit conservative when compared to the Honda Civic. When? Well that is the big question. The 2008 Altis should hit the Toyota showrooms before the end of 2007. Most likely the launch will be before the 2007 Thailand International Motor Expo in November, so perhaps an October unveiling is likely. I would definitely recommend holding out for the new Altis if you are currently considering a purchase. Check back for more news and updates as we get them.

    Speaker corner

    Hi, Since the one at hong lim had to go through so many channels to apply permit. We could have a virtual one here.
  24. hi bros..... was thinking hard on where to post tis topic , but decided to post it here cos come to think it . its japan who really start the ball rolling . Its DRIFTING i can guess that most of us, car lover here had watch intial D , even its not the original manga (COMIC) , but still i can bet that at least most of us did catch the movie who feature Jay Chow as the lead actor driving the old toyota sprinter , beating the hell out of a 380hp RX7 , 400++hp evo , or 200SX . look unbelivable ? well not really , it is true and a fact that while going dwn hill horse power differences is greatly minimise which means as long as the HP of the car is ard 160hp-190hp the moment when going dwn hill it is still on parf with even a 500 horses car , which means to say that its up to the skill of the driver on both tuning and driving , drfting had been quite popular for the past recent yrs. years ago after watching the cartoon version of intial D , i have since fall in love with drifting , i been trying hard to save for my dream drift car (due to family commitment and practical choice , im driving a 03 civic now) , but thats not gg to make me give up my DREAM EVER !!! i'm sure 1 day i can get my dream car , but then here come the big let down i have jus recently read up on a drifting news update saying that drifting is not mean for fast speed racing WHY!!! ok wait!!! i do noe that todays drift racing mostly make up of point system which is judge by how well the car can perform the most beautiful drift , how close the car can get near the wall without knocking in a drift Bla bla bla.... and i thought y they nv actually compete each other jus like the F1 did is bcos the tire cannot get them thru the whole lap ( as the rear tire burn out real fast) , nv did i expect that the real ans is bcos , the best and fastest way to race is not to drift at all , get in the corner get in fast get out fast win the race . is it true? or maybe fellow bro here are able to enlighten me ? by the way im actually trying to get my hands on a S13 or a IS200 , anyone noe how well can the car perform any driver here ? i heard that out of S13 S14 S15 , S14 under perform in tis 3 model is it true ? any drifting old bird can pls share ur experience with me ? thanks...
